Parts of Speech Made Easy

Idea by Terri, 6th, 7th & 8th Grade Teacher, Leesburg, OH

To help students learn parts of speech, we make “Parts of Speech Foldables.” I have each student fold a piece of paper in half vertically and label the left side of the page with the part of speech, the definition of that part of speech, and examples of that part of speech. Students then locate examples of that part of speech from books, magazines, and newspapers and place those on the right hand side of their folded papers.
