Introducing Bo the Bee Balladeer, who here revises the basic parts of speech in verse. The noun, the verb, the adjective and the adverb are presented in a very different and innovative activity. As each part of speech is presented in this narrative poem, students create their own mind map of words and concepts which are then all pulled together into a creative writing piece loosely arranged around the theme of a 'quest'. This is grammar in application as students are encouraged to use their knowledge of the elements of language to enliven their writing and expand meaning. So unusual this activity is guaranteed to take the yawn out of a language lesson.
