The Gumball Machine "Parts of Speech" is an activity that reviews nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and prepositions. Students look at the word on each colorful gumball and decides what part of speech the word is. They then place the gumball onto the correct "Gumball Machine." There are 72 matches, which includes 12 gumballs for each part of speech listed above. This activity can be used in whole group to review or place in your literacy stations so students can work independently. They can check their answers with the answer key that is available. One thumbnail picture will show you the specific words used in this activity for each part of speech. This activity is brought to you by "PRECIOUS ITEMS."
My students enjoy activities and it helps me to identify students that still have difficulty with a skill taught. When I presented the activity as a whole group I placed on my magnetic white board. I already placed magnetic dots on the back of each gumball and each gumball machine. Afterwards, this activity went into my literacy stations for students to practice independently.
