How do we get students to see the benefit of understanding the parts of speech and applying their knowledge? The part of speech of a word is determined by the way the word is used in a sentence. This worksheet lists nine words that could be nouns or verbs. It just depends on how they are used in the sentence. It asks students to write one sentence using each word as a noun and one sentence using each word as an verb. The first word - attack - is completed as an example.
