It is no secret that we have been working on the parts of speech over here at Let’s Learn With Style. We have had a lot of fun and I feel like some great learning took place too. The challenge is making sure kids retain what they learn.I am a huge fan of circular curriculum because they revisit concepts. If your kids aren’t using what they have learned they will most likely forget how to use it. So I decided to create some activities to help with the parts of speech we have been working on.
The first is review is a fun activity called “Do you see what I see?” Each student will use a list of sentences to draw a picture. After each student is finished the class will compare the pictures to see the differences and what parts of speech were used. I have attached a printable to use for the activity! It is so fun to see the different picture at the end of this activity. I love how creative the kids with this activity.
Games are always a great way to learn and reinforce skills that have already been taught. Getting kids moving and thinking is a win for everyone. I have created a fun grammar game that will do a little of both. The bonus is it will help you see what they have retained from previous lessons. We had a great time playing this game and brushing up on our grammar skills. If you would like to try out our game just click the link below to download it.
Bingo is another fun way to combine playing and learning. Bingo can be used for almost any subject so I though it would be perfect for a quick grammar review. I have attached a fun version with 5 different cards. We used this this week and had a blast.
Mad Libs are still one of my favorite ways to review the parts of speech. They are so fun and silly and cover most parts of speech. There are tons of Mad Libs books you can buy but there are also a few websites that allow you to create your own. I have attached a link for one that we think is really fun. We have also created one for you to complete, just click on the attachment below. These really had us giggling!
Since this is the technology age I also think online resources are a great way to grab your students attention. They are great for helping them revisit concepts you have already covered. Here are a few links for grammar sites we really love.
