Activity Description

Believe it or not, grammar can be fun! This activity has children and teens practice using different parts of speech to play a fill-in-the-blank-story game. They then make their own list of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, exclamations, and conjunctions that they turn into a personal magnetic poetry set.

Why This Is Helpful

Understanding the different parts of speech is important to reading and writing well. But it can be a challenge to make grammar fun and interesting. Activities like this encourage children to play with language while making sure that they know the difference between a noun and a verb or an adjective and an adverb.

This activity was modified from the ReadWriteThink lesson plan The Magnetism of Language: Parts of Speech, Poetry, and Word Play.
