Product Description

“The Black Cat” Color-By-Parts-Of-Speech – a versatile, hand-drawn, color-coding activity. An image based on Poe’s short story “The Black Cat” for students to sort different parts of speech by color-coding each word. All of the words have been pulled from the adapted short story.

1 / Parts of speech covered: nouns, verbs, adjectives, & adverbs

2 / What is in the zip file:

  • 4-page PDF with the printable activity and answer key
  • 1 JPEG file that can be used in programs like Active Inspire so that students can color-code on their laptops

3 / When to use this color-coding activity:

  • Around Halloween (we always read a few Poe short stories in October and discuss the elements he included in his stories before students write some scary stories themselves)
  • Before reading “The Black Cat” -- students can make predictions about what the text will be about
  • After reading the story – a fun way to discuss Poe’s word choice, while reviewing the roles of the different parts of speech

3 / Ideas for using this color-coding activity:

  • Print a copy for each student, and use the activity for group work or in a review station
  • Print a copy for each student and use in conjunction with the text
  • Print a class set, laminate, and use dry erase markers to color
  • Have students color-code on their laptops (jpeg file can be used as a slide in Active Inspire or similar program)
