DIY Parts of Speech Poem
When I was in elementary school I learned a poem which started, "Nouns are just the names of things like rice and birds and snow and rings" it went on to explain other parts of speech, "When something is done the adverb then tells how and why and where and when" etc.
I heavily altered the poem to focus on what I teach in one of my classes and review the basics.
I also wanted to make it more dynamic and interactive than just a poem so I made it into a mad libs like assignment.
You can download it for free at TeachersPayTeachers or BusyTeachers there also is a sample of the poem once it is completed. If you haven't signed up for Teachers Pay Teachers yet click here to go straight to their sign up page (Remember it is free!).
