This lesson is the first in a series of starters. The zip file includes a lesson plan, a PowerPoint, "drop in" or fill in the blank notes, an additional practice worksheet, prepositions quiz, and a common prepositions handout.
Students color code the parts of speech as they progress through the different lessons. Each lesson has a small review of the previous lessons. After completing the “drop in” notes students tape them into their composition notebook. Students use the notes for small weekly quizzes. Again, each quiz has one question from each previous lesson. Reviewing the notes for the quiz is a great way to help students study the parts of speech. There are eight lessons in the series consisting of: Prepositions, Nouns 1, Nouns 2, Verbs 1, Verbs 2, Pronouns, Adjectives, and Adverbs.
