Do your students seem to always need a review of the four main parts of speech before you can dive into grade level grammar skills? This post will share some free parts of speech activities that you can use to help give your students practice while they review nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
About the Parts of Speech Choice Boards
Choice boards are always great to use in the classroom. Students enjoy having choice and you can easily differentiate practice and review with the choice boards (by assigning more or less tasks, by making some tasks a must-do, etc).
The free parts of speech choice boards offer students a quick review of:
There is one choice board per part of speech and each board includes 5 different tasks.
The tasks review a variety of skills from generating examples of parts of speech, sorting or categorizing parts of speech, identifying parts of speech examples in books, and writing or rewriting sentences with specific parts of speech.
Here are some example tasks for each part of speech:
Noun Example Tasks
Noun Sort – Students will sort 12 nouns based on whether each noun is a person, place, or thing. The digital version has moveable pieces.
Nouns by Room – Students will select five rooms in their house and make a list of all of the nouns that can be found in each room.
Verb Example Tasks
Verbs in a Book – Students will use a picture book to compile a list of all of the verbs on a page or section.
Animal Verbs – Each student will pick three animals and create a list of five action verbs that each animal does (i.e. kangaroo – jump). You can challenge students not to repeat verbs throughout the task.
Adjective Example Tasks
Creative Adjective Writing – This task asks students to write sentences that include provided adjectives (golden, miniature, fragile, shy, and interesting). Once the students have completed writing each sentence, they will identify the noun each adjective describes.
Enhance the Sentence – Students will need to rewrite and enhance two given sentences to include one or two adjectives in each sentence.
Adverb Example Tasks
Adverb Table – For this choice, students will need to complete a table by listing two adverbs that could be used to describe each of the provided verbs (sing, dance, sit, say, run).
Fill-in-the-Adverb – To complete this choice, students are asked to complete given sentences with an appropriate adverb.
About the Digital Parts of Speech Choice Boards
The digital parts of speech choice boards are available through Google Slides. Just like the printable choice boards, each part of a speech has its own choice board with 5 options on each board.
Each choice on the board is linked to its matching slide and each slide has a linked “Back to Main Menu” button, so students can easily navigate through the slides on the board.
