Technology Resources Needed:
Internet access for teacher to search for examples of tongue twisters
1. Bellringer: Create a four-column chart heading the four columns nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Write the first letter of your first name at the top of the chart. (If student's name begins with a vowel, have them use middle or last name.) Complete the chart with words that begin with the first letter of the first name. Noun column must include student's name. For example, if my name is Lauren, my noun column may include Lauren, lollipop, London, etc. Each column must have five words in it. An example of a completed chart is attached.
2. Students may need scaffolding for this activity. I like to remind students that colors and flavors are easy adjective examples.
Higher-level students may be required to create compound or complex sentences.
Struggling learners may be provided with definitions for the parts of speech.
Students may also be provided with blank copies of the chart. A couple of examples may or may not be filled in, depending on the ability level of the students.
If there is a significant number of lower-level students, teacher may allow students to work with partners.
