Montessori Parts of Speech Bundle
In today’s day and age, there are often debates as to whether or not the study of grammar is even necessary. But when we view grammar as the building blocks for sentence construction, the answer is clear. By studying grammar, identifying sentence construction and patterns, children become better writers and readers.
Included in this Bundle are Parsing Task Cards, Parts of Speech 3-Part Cards, Printable Parts of Speech Symbols, Printable Grammar Symbol Explanation Series, Parts of Speech Flowchart, Parsing: Build Your Own Sentences
This work mirrors the lessons presented in the Elementary I Montessori album. Each level introduces a new part of speech into the mix, so it will take time for the child to work their way through the entire pack. The material contains five different levels with nine task cards in each. All cards have corresponding answer keys. These could either be printed double sided on the task card or be printed separately, laminated, and grouped together on a ring for easy checking.
Nomenclature cards, or 3-part cards are a wonderful way for children to interact with new information. The material consists of labels, definition cards, and pictures. When completing this work, the child should begin by sorting all the cards and placing the pictures across the top of their rug or table. They then read the labels and definition and match them to the pictures.
When finished matching, the child should check their work using the control before recording their work in a journal. This includes writing the label, drawing a picture, and paraphrasing the definition. Children are encouraged to conduct additional research!
Additionally, you will find a Parts of Speech coloring booklet for the child with cursive handwriting practice.
Lastly, a set of “I Have... Who Has?” cards is included for additional practice!
Print the material on cardstock, cut on the dotted lines, and laminate if possible.
Within this set you will find:
•Pgs 2-6: Parts of Speech 3-Part Cards
•Pgs 7-9: Parts of Speech 3-Part Cards Control
•Pgs. 10-12: ”My Parts of Speech Booklet”
•Pgs. 12-13: ”I Have.... Who Has?” Cards and Answer Key
Having a solid understanding of the different parts of speech can benefit a child greatly as they begin the process of constructing their own sentences and paragraphs. Knowing sentence patterns and rules can also help in the reading decoding process and sentence parsing can be a wonderful way to practice this. However, as the child works with more and more complex sentences, they may still need some assistance in deducing what part of speech they are working with. This flowchart offers the child a concrete visual as they work their way through a variety of questions that help them pinpoint exactly which part of speech they’re looking for.
This material is meant to act as an extension to the initial parts of speech impressionistic lessons and grammar boxes. After the students have practiced identifying the the parts of speech in a sentence using these introductory SentenceParsing- Identifying Parts of Speech task cards, they can move to this work where they are given the sentence structure and it is their job to create and write a sentence that matches it. Within this set there are five different levels. Each level builds on the one before and contains nine task cards.
Also included in the set are color-coded word cards which can be used to help the child construct sentences based on the given structure patterns.
As a note, because each sentence that’s being made is unique to the child creating it, there is no corresponding answer key. However, I have included examples of sentences that would fit the structures found in the different levels as a guide.
