3 Ways to Extend This English Grammar Lesson

Solidify your students’ comprehension of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs with these bonus activities for small groups or whole-class learning environments: 

👁️‍🗨️ Pre-Lesson Activity

Assign this presentation as independent reading, either at home or before starting the lesson together as a group. Ask students to provide their own examples for each part of speech to assess their understanding. 

🤔 Dissect the Sentences

Once students have selected the correct word for the question, review the other three words and decide which part of speech each represents. Additionally, practise sentence structure by taking other words out of the sentence to see whether it makes sense. What do they notice about nouns and verbs compared to adjectives and adverbs?

📝 Be the Teacher

As a post-lesson activity, ask students what they would put on a quiz if they were the teacher. Have your students create a 5-question quiz using the information in the presentation. Then direct them to trade papers with another student to take the quiz.

  • Melita Stubis

    Hi there, On slide 12 "a lot more higher" is grammatically incorrect. Either "a lot higher" or "a lot more high".

    • Kristian

      Hi Melita, Thanks for noticing this. We have corrected the slides.

  • Sonia

    I know I can edit this one, but this would save other teachers. There's a typo on slide 15 & 16 - shinny needs to be replaced with shiny.
