This classification lesson addresses the language arts standard that involves sorting words into categories (nouns, verbs, synonyms, etc...).
It can be used both as an introductory whole-group activity or placed in a center for additional individual practice. Second graders could benefit from this activity as well. I've included an answer key (for center work), a recording sheet and an additional activity for homework. My own first grade friends loved this activity. I hope yours do, too!
