As students become more sophisticated writers, they begin to understand that words have different “jobs” in a sentence. These jobs can be thought of as parts of speech. In this word study unit, students will learn about the work that transition words, prepositions, verbs, adverbs and adjectives do. Students will also explore how certain kinds of words work together, like verbs and adverbs.
Linking and helping verbs may not be the most exciting or understood verbs — but they are still important! Learn and practice these parts of speech. Learn and practice these parts of speech with this lesson that incorporates interactive exercises.
