This challenging hands-on review activity requires students to put their knowledge of the eight parts of speech, addition, and currency to the test! With two versions and sentences ranging in difficulty, this activity works for all skill levels.
In Valuable Sentences, using a currency key that shows a corresponding value for each part of speech, students must identify the parts of speech for all words within a sentence, then determine the total value of the sentence. As a final step, students will use currency manipulatives to assemble the correct combination of coins to represent the value of the sentence.
In a second, more challenging version of the activity, students work backwards. Using a given value, students must create a sentence with a correct combination of parts of speech.
