Poetry Cards

A while ago I created these poetry cards using poems from the public domain for some grammar work, which I thought I would share with you.

These could be used in a number of ways, for example copy work, recital, reading, study and so forth.
For children who are able to symbolise the parts of speech it is important that they practice on a variety of text types so they can discover patterns and see the differences between texts. With poetry it can really open the child to the mechanics of poetry, illustrating some of the concepts making them easier to grasp. This can lead to some great conversations and comparisons.

The poetry file is available HERE.

Introduction to Prepositions

I shared some photos from a recent prepositions lesson on Facebook
and wow were they popular!

This work is so much fun and you can use any objects at hand.

When writing and working with sentence strips it really appeals to the humour of the elementary children to transpose the subject and the object, reinforcing the importance of correct word usage.

It is also important that the children build their own sentences as follow up to this work.

These cards can be used to build sentences in conjunction with the other parts of speech cards, they can be used as simple single word commands or your children may choose them for spelling words.

You can find my printable file HERE.
