As you probably already know, kids go bonkers for anything Minecraft. A great way to build student’s understanding of parts of speech (nouns and verbs in this product) is to have them partake in a word sort. The words in this product are vocabulary from the game. There are some words that are more difficult and some that are easier. Use your judgement for how you would differentiate the words for each group of students based on their academic level and also for your ELL students.
What's Included with this product:
This item is geared toward grades 1-3rd depending on their academic ability. It is best used as an ELA center rotation.
