Lesson: Tongue Twister Parts of Speech
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?
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)
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.
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.
