Parts of speech are one of my favorite things to teach.
It might seem mundane to most people, but it reminds me of when I was younger and learning about nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. I had a very organized notebook with information about each part of speech in individual sections with very neat headings and labels. I’ve always been a big fan of rules and organized notes, so I guess teaching parts of speech just takes me to that very organized place (you know, before I knew the truth about the English language and how it doesn’t really always follow its own rules… ha ha!).
I have just begun a new product line of task cards. I’ve always used them in the classroom, but I always created them on the fly for whatever lesson I was doing at the time. In short, they’ve never been “up to snuff” for what I’d consider publishing. I’ve decided to change that. I’ve been revisiting the sets I’ve created for my own students and have begun revamping each set. Although I started with a counting coins set, I have become pretty well immersed in ELA in the past couple of days. I’ve even posted a set of common nouns task cards just this evening!
Over the next couple of weeks, I’m hoping to get at least one pack of task cards for each part of speech finished and posted. (When I mention it to more than just myself and my to-do list, I think it ends up getting done faster!) So hold me to it!
I hope you have a wonderful Monday tomorrow!
