How to use this teaching resource

  • Go on a ”Parts of Speech” word hunt in books, around the environment, classify printed word cards.  Brainstorm, list words from the parts of speech you are working on then use these in sentences….see below…
  • CHANGE-AROUNDS…. Another great activity for parts of speech is to make up a sentence and change the parts of speech you are working on – for example, the sentence – ”My cat likes to jump on our bed” – you could ask the children to change the pronoun (My to Our), noun (cat to elephant), verb (jump to squirm), preposition (on to around) pronoun (our to his / or noun Richard’s) noun (bed to teapot) – So the sentence becomes…. ‘Our elephant likes to squirm around Richard’s teapot.’ – you can make up some really humourous sentences doing  change-arounds.  See how many change-arounds children can make from one starting sentence – illustrate their funniest one – just change one or more parts of speech.
  • The nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs on this site also help with change-arounds or use words from your word hunt lists.
  • Print the A4 size for each child to pop into their nursery rhymes, poems and songs scrapbook – children ‘play with the words, letters and sounds’.
  • Another great way to use these is to hand out the cut out sections (be it the phrases, or the words) and in groups children have to work together to place the rhyme back in order – or similarly – as a whole group start with the title – then whoever has the next section – comes forward and adds the next piece until the song is complete.
  • Print (bigger onto A3 if prefer), pop onto coloured backing card, laminate and keep up on display to refer to often as a class.
  • Print (larger onto A3 if you like), laminate, and cut up ready for children to reconstruct – pop into your song / poem box.
  • Don’t forget to really make the most of these poems / songs and put your detective hats on to search for rhyming words, circle phonic sounds, play ‘find the word’ games, look for question marks and other structures, lots of ‘playing with words’– it’s great fun to find all the word/letter patterns in poems and nursery rhymes.
