Compliance: Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.5.1, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.5.2)

Subject: English Language Arts

Summary: This activity engages fifth-grade students in a hands-on exploration of the parts of speech, helping them develop a deeper understanding of grammar.

Topic: Parts of Speech

Learning Outcomes:

  • Know the eight parts of speech: noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection.
  • Understand the function and role of each part of speech in a sentence.
  • Apply knowledge of parts of speech to identify and use them correctly in writing.


This activity will involve a combination of direct instruction, group work, and individual practice. Students will engage in hands-on activities, discussions, and writing exercises to reinforce their understanding of the parts of speech.


  • Chart paper or whiteboard
  • Markers or chalk
  • Index cards or sticky notes
  • Printed examples of sentences
  • Writing materials


Step 1: Introduction (Know)

Begin the lesson by introducing the concept of parts of speech. Use the chart paper or whiteboard to create a visual representation of the eight parts of speech, labeling each one.

Step 2: Direct Instruction (Understand)

Provide a brief explanation of each part of speech, highlighting their functions and roles in a sentence. Use examples to illustrate how each part of speech is used.

Step 3: Group Activity (Understand)

Divide the class into small groups and distribute index cards or sticky notes. Assign each group a specific part of speech. Instruct the groups to brainstorm as many examples of their assigned part of speech as possible within a given time frame.

Step 4: Group Presentations (Understand)

Have each group present their examples to the class. Encourage discussions and clarifications as needed.

Step 5: Individual Practice (Can Do)

Distribute printed examples of sentences to each student. Instruct them to identify and label the parts of speech in each sentence. Provide guidance and support as necessary.

Step 6: Writing Exercise (Can Do)

Ask students to write a short paragraph using at least one example of each part of speech. Encourage creativity and proper usage of the parts of speech.


Assess students' understanding of the parts of speech through their active participation in group activities, their ability to correctly identify and label parts of speech in sentences, and their written paragraphs. Provide feedback and guidance to help students improve their understanding and application of grammar concepts.
