Language Arts Grammar - Parts of Speech Activities "Understand This!"

by: Connie Casserly
Grades 6-12

Students need to understand the parts of a sentence if they are to write strong sentences of their own. 

Part A is a Mad-Libs-based exercise where students must fill in blanks with the required part of speech. 
Part B has students exhibit their understanding of how the parts of speech are used in sentences. They are to select words of their choosing that will form complete sentences following the given patterns.
