Language Task Cards can be used at literacy centers to help students practice parts of speech in an engaging way.
Learning parts of speech continues to be included in state and national standards. We always did our best to try to teach the parts of speech within the context of real writing – getting students to improve writing by using more specific adjectives to describe their nouns or more interesting adverbs to modify their verbs. That said, we also need students to identify parts of speech and use them correctly in sentences to be sure that they understand how they are used. The following 48 Language task cards involve students in writing sentences using specific words and then identifying parts of speech within the sentences they write.
You will find all 48 cards and a recording sheet here: Language (Parts of Speech) Task Cards
Use these cards at a center and have students write in a notebook or on white lined paper, or you might choose to use the recording sheet provided within the download.
