This is a fun, interactive, and engaging activity for students to practice and review parts of speech, including articles, adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs, and prepositions.
It can be utilized in your classroom in a variety of ways, which are explained in the teacher guidelines included with the resource. Students brainstorm words for each part of speech on the poster. As a class, they sing the silly sentences they create to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell” (view the video preview to see it in action in the classroom). Choose different words from the list to create new songs! The activity works well in a whole group lesson, as well as in small groups, partners, and as a literacy center or early finisher activity. Many ideas for variations of the activity are included with the resource.
