Parts of Speech Game

While working on the parts of speech why not make a game out of it to keep them practicing?! You will need a Scattergories dice with letters on it and make your own dice template like the one below.

Once you print the template fill it out with the parts of speech you are working on. We did verb, adverb, noun, adjective, pronoun and then “your choice”.

Have your child roll the dice. Look at what part of speech has landed up and then at which letter is facing up. They have to give an example of that part of speech that starts with the letter that is shown. Example: you roll “noun” and “r” and you could say, “remote control”.

One of the great things about this game is watching your kids easily remember what each of the parts of speech is. I would quiz them here and there before on what an adjective or verb was and they would always hesitantly reply. Now, we can be out somewhere and I will say, “Verb, S, go!” and they will immediately respond, “verb is an action…squatting!” It’s always fun seeing progress in your kids! 👏🏻

If you don’t have a Scattergories die no worries! Just print two of the templates and fill one of them in with 6 common letters such as T, S, R, W, N, M.

Hope you have fun!
