#10 Bulletin Board

 Select a food item students can sample in class. [I have done this activity with apples, popcorn, and Hershey kisses.] As students eat the food, have them complete a chart with rich describing words (adjectives) like the one below.

 

See Hear Feel Taste Sound
         
         

Next provide students with one or two paper cut-outs of the food item you have selected for this activity. Each student will select the best word(s) from his/her chart and write one word per cut-out.

The cut-outs will then be arranged on the bulletin board in an attractive manner. For example apples may spill out of a basket. Popcorn may be in a red and white stripped box like those provided at the movie theater.

#4 Dice Game

[Note: This game can be played with any part of speech.] 

Set Up

Prepare a list of sentence strips with long sentences that contain many prepositions. This could simply be a worksheet with sentences that have been cut apart.

Playing the Game

  • Divide the class into small learning groups of approximately four students each.
  • Provide each group with a set of sentence strips, an answer key, and a dice.
  • The players roll the dice to determine which player goes first.
  • On a turn, players draw one sentence strip. The player reads the sentence to the group. The player must then identify all the prepositions correctly.
  • Next the student awards or subtracts points from a tally sheet by first rolling the dice. The player is awarded the number on the dice times the number of prepositions in the sentence IF s/he answered correctly. If the player provided any incorrect answers, the number on the dice times the number of prepositions in the sentence are subtracted from the tally.
  • The winner is the student who has the most points when the time is called for the game to end.

Parts of Speech ~ Interjections

 

Ten Ideas for Teaching Interjections

#1  Introduction Lesson

 When teaching interjections for the first time to a class I like to begin with this activity. . . .

I ask the class to imagine they are at a football game. [You can change this to basketball, baseball, etc. depending on the season.] I ask the students to tell me some short CLEAN phrases they might say while watching the game. While students say words like “Go! Yeah! Alright! Yes!” etc. I type these on the computer for the class to view using SMARTBoard. I encourage additional responses by asking questions such as, “If you spill your popcorn, what would you say?” or “If you accidentally bump into your neighbor, what would you say?” and so on to get an assortment of words/phrases that might be said with excitement as well as in a normal voice. 

After a dozen or so responses have been made, I ask for a volunteer to come to the SMARTBoard to highlight the responses based on how they would be said. One color is used to highlight words or phrases said with a lot of emotion, and a different color is used to highlight words/phrases that are said in a normal voice.

I follow this activity with a discussion about strong and mild interjections.

#3  Comic Strips

Collect an assortment of comic strips out of the Sunday newspaper. Cut out the speech bubbles. Have students create the text for the comic strip. Superhero strips such as Superman work well.

#4  Sentence Strip Activity

Write a collection of sentences on strips of paper. Place these in a small box. When you have a minute or two before changing classes, call on a student to pull a sentence strip from the box. The student must first read the sentence as is, then add an interjection to form a new sentence.

#5  Interjection Alphabet

Have students come up with an interjection for each letter of the alphabet.

A – Ah

B – Bah Humbug

C – Cool

etc.
