Revamp your grammar instruction and provide students with a quick reference for the 8 parts of speech. Featuring a quick review of the parts of speech and an explanation of how the parts of speech are like jobs, this quick reference can be printed and posted as an anchor chart in your room or handed out for students to use for grammar work.
Each Part of Speech is assigned a “job” to make the concepts sticky for students. Each part of speech includes a “job description” comparing it to the job and “key characteristics” and “examples” of the part of speech.
This quick reference is useful when students are answering Common Core multi-skill grammar questions to determine the part of speech and subsequently identify errors in a sentence.
This tool presents parts of speech in a different, dynamic, and sticky way for students. Whether you use it as a tool for students who struggle to grasp the parts of speech or as a scaffold in answering complex grammar questions, this quick reference is the perfect supplement for your ELA classroom.
