It worked!!!

Hello friends,
I'd like to talk about something new I tried in my classroom that worked really well. 

What I have noticed all these years of teaching is that kids have difficulty understanding and identifying the parts of speech such as nouns, verbs and adjectives. (don’t get me started on adverbs) hashtag:a_teacher’s_life_can_be_challenging

I was using my Emergent Readers resource to help my kids work on their reading skills and the idea hit me! Why not work on these simple sentences which add adjectives and new nouns and Sight Words gradually? And so I did!

It was a big hit! Kids started identifying the parts of speech in every sentence easier and faster than I would have hoped for!

As you can see each sentence adds new words and parts of speech like new adjectives and nouns to the words already repeated which makes it easier for the kids to identify nouns, adjectives and verbs. 

The extra bonus is that they also work on Sight Words!


  1. Great idea! Would work well with esl students learning to stretch their sentences, too.😊

  2. Great article and ideas! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Good idea! I love working on multiple skills at once!

  4. Brilliant idea! This is why I love seeing teacher create their resources!
