These resources address only those multiple meaning words that can be used as either a noun or verb. Three activities are included and are designed for easy differentiation.
The first item is a set of 36 word cards and sorting sheet. In this item, 18 words are used as both a noun and verb and students need to determine how the underlined word is used. You could distribute these at random, or pair up the matching cards before sorting. A mini noun/verb anchor chart is provided for this activity.
The next item is a mini anchor chart with examples of words being used as nouns and verbs. A non-example is included, as well as a blank chart for students to fill in on their own. A list of multiple meaning words to choose from is provided. Assign the words and complete in a small group, or have students choose their own words and work independently. You may require both a picture and a sentence for each word, or just a picture, depending on the skill level of the student.
Finally, two sets of worksheets are included. The first set can be copied front to back and used for students who are able to work independently. The second set can be copied front to back and used for students who need more support since the example sentence for the noun or verb usage of each word is already provided.
