Parts of Speech Games Printable (** for premium members only)

There are nine parts of speech that classify how words are used in particular sentences. They are verbs, nouns, pronouns, articles, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions and interjections. In English, there are many words that can be more than one part of speech, so context is always important. For example “act”, “plant”, and “study” can be all be either a verb or a noun, depending on usage.

Brian P. Cleary: Words
The “Words are CATagorical” book series by Brian P. Cleary introduces parts of speech with rhymes and funny cats. “Offering a lighthearted perspective, each title shows readers the fun and entertaining world of language.” This companion website does the same with interactive activities. From interactive parts-of-speech quizzes to zany fill-in-the blank stories, these games are great. There are also printable posters, and lots of printable worksheets listed under Teacher Tools.

Education Place: Wacky Web Tales
These fun fill-in-the-blank tales from Education Place will provide hours of parts-of-speech practice. Each tale starts with a list of blank spaces, with each one requiring a noun, adjective, adverb or other part of speech. Click “See Your Wacky Web Tale” to read your funny story. “Each spring the sky turns green. Giant drops of molasses fall from the sky. All this molasses helps the grass and tigers to grow, but it can make things real funny too!”

Sheppard Software: Parts of Speech Tutorial
