Attached is a nouns, verbs and adjective packet for grades 4-8th. It breaks down each part of speech individually and allows students time to practice each skill in isolation.
First page they sort N/V/Adj using a list of words that students should be familiar with by 5th grade. I would allow students to use a dictionary to look up words that they don't know. Yes there are over 50 words on this list for them to sort, you can require them to do less if you wish. I am going to use this packet as morning work/time fillers between lunch/specialist where there is maybe 15 minutes or so a day to work.
Page 2: Common Nouns/ Proper Nouns
Students will find a proper noun to go with each common noun and visa versa. They will be asked to then create their own list of common/proper nouns and then pair with a partner to find a match.
Page 3: Verbs, Verbs, Verbs
Students will find exciting, interesting and vibrant verbs to replace some of the commonly overused boring words.
Page 4: Verbs~
Change a boring story into a more action packed thriller, by changing verbs and adding adjectives if they are able to.
Page 5: Adjectives
They will list all the adjectives they can about one of their classmates. Winning pair will receive a prize from the teacher for most number of accurate adjectives listed.
Page 6: Adjectives
Find object at home and repeat previous activity. This time a classmate will try and figure out their object at home based on the adjectives.
