I have been using these pages for years and my student's language and writing scores have increased dramatically! It has helped my students understand how to use different parts of speech correctly in their writing and also how to identfy words that have multiple parts of speech based on the context of the sentence.
Each page provides a paragraph and fill in the blanks for students to read and figure out the part of speech of each word in relation to the sentence. Can be used for basic parts of speech (which are nouns and which are verbs) or more advanced (for each noun put if it is common or proper/abstract or concrete, for each verb put the tense it is in...etc). You can differentiate for workshop within one class! Can be used weekly in workshop, morning work, or even as an assessment.
You can even extend and have students create their own on the back and have them give it to another student! If they can create their own, then you can tell if they truely understand!
