Parts of Speech Project

Parts of Speech Project


NOUNS
  1. Draw a rainbow with six colored stripes.  Fill the top stripe with nouns that are usually red (ex: apple).  Fill the second stripe with nouns that name items that are usually orange (ex: tangerine).  Continue with the colors yellow, green, blue, and purple.  Add illustrations.

  1. A home for a rodent is a mouse house.  A slippery tree limb is a slick stick.  Think of at least four other rhyming adjectives/noun pairs and write descriptions for them like the examples above.  Illustrate them.

VERBS
  1. Make a list down your paper of the letters of the alphabet.  Now write a verb that begins with each letter of the alphabet.  You should have 26 verbs when finished.
  2. Find at least ten synonyms for each of the following verbs: talk, walk, run, add.  Note: make sure you are finding synonyms for verbs—not some other part of speech.

PRONOUNS
  1. Slogans are catchy sayings companies use to help people remember products.  Many slogans begin with pronouns, such as we (to refer to the company), it (to refer to the product, or you (to refer to the customer).  Choose ten products or companies and write a clever slogan for each.  Do not use existing slogans.  Make up your own and begin the slogan with a pronoun.
  2. Write a pronoun poem.  It should be at least 10 lines long.  Each line should begin with a different pronoun.  Use objective, subjective, interrogative, and demonstrative pronouns (at least two of each).

ADJECTIVES
  1. Find at least two adjectives for each of the following categories: Color, Size, Shape, Distance, Feelings or Qualities (do not use good, nice, or pretty), Quantity, Temperature, Time, Nationality or Origin, Material, Age, Purpose.  Label each category.
  2. Make a list down your paper of the letters of the alphabet.  Now write an adjective that describes yourself for each letter.  You should have 26 adjectives when finished.

ADVERBS
  1. Make a list of ten actions a football/basketball/baseball (pick one) player might do.  Now, for each, list two adverbs that could explain how the athlete might have done each of those actions. Use your words to write ten sentences about the athlete you chose.

Example:         ran = action verb
                        forward, quickly = adverbs
                        The receiver ran forward quickly to catch the winning pass.
  1. Any action verb you use could have an adverb.  Write two sentences, each with a different action verb.  Then rewrite each sentence five times but use a different adverb each time to change the meaning of your sentence.  Underline the adverb in each sentence.
Example:         She got up energetically.
                        She got up carefully.
                        She got up frantically.
                        She got up calmly.
                        She got up reluctantly.
PREPOSITIONS:
  1. Write a Preposition Poem.  Each line of the poem must begin with a preposition.  The poem should have a title (what the poem is about) and at least 15 lines.
CONJUNCTIONS:
  1. To remember the coordinating conjunctions, just remember the word FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so).  Write two different sentences for each of the coordination conjunctions. 
INTERJECTIONS:
  1. Write a short dialogue between two people.  Have each person use at least five interjections in the dialogue.  Remember to punctuate the dialogue appropriately.  (Use your Writer’s Choice book if you need help with this).

At the most basic level, writing is the physical act of committing words or ideas to some medium, whether it is hieroglyphics inked onto parchment or an e-mail message typed into a computer. On the other hand, writing is the mental work of inventing ideas, thinking about how to express them, and organizing them into statements and paragraphs that will be clear to a reader. 
• Its purpose is both to express and impress. Writers typically serve two masters: themselves, and their own desires to express an idea or feeling, and readers, also called the audience, who need to have ideas expressed in certain ways. Writers must then choose the best form for their writing-a shopping list, notes from a meeting, a scholarly article, a novel, or poetry are only a few of the choices.
