You will definitely want to laminate this activity for year after year use at your literacy center! This is such a fun way for your students to practice identifying and sorting nouns, verbs, and adjectives. The download comes with 3 large trees, 3 baskets (labeled noun, verb, or adjective), and 54 apples. There are 18 apples for each category. Each apple has a word on it that is either a noun (person, place, or thing - 6 of each), a verb, or an adjective. I also included a recording sheet.
* Put the 3 trees on a table
*Put the 3 baskets on the table
* Randomly place all the apples in the tree so that they can be "picked"
* Students will pick an apple, read the word, place the apple word in the correct
basket (noun, verb, adjective)
* Students will write the word in the appropriate column on their recording sheet
TIP: The recording sheet can be used as a resource by students later to assist them in story writing.
This activity is also available as a noun sort (person, place, or thing)!
