Easy Parts of Speech Program

Parts of speech can be pretty lame to teach (and hard to teach) if you don’t have a good, painless way to do it a little at a time. Here’s what one school does:

  • Each part of speech is assigned a color (adjectives are brown, nouns are blue, etc.)
  • Each classroom has the same posters up (so there’s consistency as the kids move through the grades).
  • Teachers use sticky tabs to add examples of the part of speech to the poster.
  • The class diagrams a sentence on the board by moving magnets (foam squares with a magnet on the back) above the words to identify them.
  • Kids record these sentences and identify parts of speech in their literacy notebooks.

You’ve probably seen Valentine’s Day paper crafts that look like this…

But have your ever thought of adding a parts of speech twist to the wreath project?

1. As a class brainstorm nouns, verbs, and adjectives that fit with Valentine’s Day.

2. Assign each color of hears a part of speech (yellow and green are nouns, pink and white are verbs, etc.)

3. Have students select words from the class brainstorm to write on the color of heart you’ve assigned.

The product is a cute, Valentine’s Day wreath, that looks like conversation hearts, but it really part of speech practice!
