What’s your school mascot? All you bears, mastiffs, cougars, panthers, wildcats, and other fierce creatures will love this quick, creative ice-breaker that allows you go get to know your students better and assess their knowledge of parts of speech. Students love seeing their creations on the wall of your classroom after completing this activity.
Included is a personality paw handout with cut-out lines marked so students can cut them out afterward. Complete instructions include descriptions and examples of each part of speech and examples of each to get the creative juices flowing. There is also an optional sheet of personality paws if you prefer to copy and pre-cut them for your students.
This PowerPoint file is formatted so that you can broadcast the worksheet onto your smart board and demonstrate filling in the correct parts of speech with words that reflect your own personality traits.
