Vocabulary Detective Task Cards 4 Pronouns, Prepositions, Conjunctions

This is the fourth in my series of Vocabulary Detective task cards! As students read books in class, they look for pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions to write on the cards that are placed in the Detective Jar. At the end of the week, cards are drawn from the jar and winner certificates or gifts can be given. Complete instructions are given in the packet.This is a valuable enrichment activity for word structure. Fun!

A sheet with preposition cards
A sheet with pronoun cards
A sheet with conjunction cards
Two Detective Jar labels
A pre-assessment worksheet with answers
Three Detective winner certificates

These weekly contests motivate students to learn new vocabulary words and to increase their knowledge about parts of speech.

You can see more of my Vocabulary Task Cards below.

Common Core standards are listed for grade five, however, this activity provides a fun way to introduce, reinforce or review identification of pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions with other grade levels.
