Get More Use Out of Our Collective Noun Worksheet
Got fast finishers or students who need more practice? Here are a few ideas to help you change the difficulty level of this worksheet.
Go Deeper with Collective Noun Practice
For a challenge, students who are familiar with collective nouns could use this resource to inspire a “mad libs” kind of activity, in which students would replace the collective noun phrase with a different collective noun phrase that was correctly used but “silly.” For example, instead of a “choir of carolers” coming to sing at your door, a “school of fish” might come to sing at your door.
Scaffolding for Struggling Students
For students who are struggling, help them complete the activity by only providing 2 or 3 options from the word bank, per question, instead of making the entire word bank available.
Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students
