More Parts of Speech Fun!
This year I decided I needed to do another Parts of Speech activity that included differentiated instruction. As usual, I had students create a Mind Map on the 8 parts of speech. Here are the mind maps from this year that I used on the bulletin board:
Here are some students making the mind maps. They could use any resource: textbook, notes, iPad. We also watched the Schoolhouse Rocks videos as they worked, and students sang along!
To reinforce what they learned, students played MADLIBS. Many students have an iPad, so we used the MadLib App (free) or I made paper copies. They had a lot of fun and learned at the same time.
Next, I put students into a group and had them create a group poster and presentation for one part of speech. Students had to include the following:
- Rules/Ways of using the part of speech/types
- 10 examples
- Song or Poem

A final video to show ho my students WOWed me!
Students were ENGAGED. What better way to learn?
