Lesson Plan

Do Now:
Students will complete an assignment in the context clues do now packet.

Over the past couple of days we have had some fun revewing the parts of speech.  Today we are going to continue to master our knowledge of the parts of speech and also reveiw subjects and predicates. 

Can someone please define what a subject is in a sentence?
Can someone define predicate?
How do they work in a sentenct?

Direct Instruction:
Teacher will show a PowerPoint Presentation on Subjects and Predicates.  The end of the powerpoint has a interactive exercise for students to do as a class.

(REMINDER: this is simply a review of content studetns should already know)

Guided Practice
(Teacher Says)
Now that we have a better understanding of subjects and predicates we are going to continue to master our use of parts of speech.

(Teacher needs to create a list of tongue twisters)
Teacher says the tongu twisters out loud and asks a few students to try and say them out loud quickly.

Next challenge your students to write their own tongue twisters using the model below:

Nouns - use at least one (Betty)
Verbs - use at least one (bought)
Adjectives - use several (brainy, billion, big, Buicks, black)
Adverbs - use at least one (busily)
Prepositional Phrases - use at least one (by the bay)

Using this model, we now have a tongue twister:
Brainy Betty busily bought a billion, big, black Buicks by the bay.

Independent Practice:
Have students write several tongue twisters making sure they use the parts of speech model. 
Let students edit and evaulate each other's wrk.
Print final copies to display on a uttetin board.

Using the tongue twister below, have students identify all the parts of speech.
"Sally sells sea shells by the sea shore"

In the Guided Practice section, Buicks is one of the words listed as an adjective.  Buicks is a proper noun.  I've made this correction in my version of the document.
