I noticed that there are a few of you who immediately caught on to the parts pf speech and can figure them out pretty fast. For those people, I say: Good job. The review sessions and classwork this week have simply afforded you the opportunity to get few good grades in the grade book.
For those of you who needed a few more examples so that you could get a better grasp on the subject, I understand. Determining parts of speech can be tricky. In fact, grammarians sometimes even argue over how words are used in sentences. There are whole websites and entire corporations devoted to the understanding of grammatical structure.
This past week, I gave you a packet of worksheets that allowed you to practice determining parts of speech. Click on any of the links below to open them in Adobe.
Worksheet - Identify Parts of Speech
Worksheet - Identify Adjectives
Worksheet - Identify Adverbs
Worksheet - Identify Nouns and Pronouns
Worksheet - Identify Prepositions
Worksheet - Identify Action and Linking Verbs
Students reviewed these a bit, worked on extra examples on the board, and asked questions on Friday before they handed this in to me.
Next week, we are going to have to know these so that we can use them to work with Parts of a SENTENCE. (There is a Prezi on this, too!) Get ready.
Have a great day.
