Wonder Color-By-Parts-Of-Speech – a versatile, hand-drawn color-coding activity. An image of Wonder’s main characters (August & Via) for students to sort different parts of speech by color-coding each word. All of the words have been pulled from the first two chapters of Wonder (“Ordinary” & “Why I Didn’t Go to School”).
1 / Parts of speech covered: nouns, verbs, adjectives, & adverbs
2 / 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 reading the first few chapters of Wonder.
•Print a class set, laminate, and use dry erase markers to color.
•Use the image digitally by placing the image in a flipchart or powerpoint for students to “color” on laptops (our school system provides laptops for each student). You could also project the image for students to color on your whiteboard / if you have a smartboard in your classroom.
