6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

Teacher will ask students to review the different parts of a sentence and parts of speech.
Teacher will give input if needed.
 

B. Development-

Teacher will explain to students that they are going to play a game to help them recognize and use adjectives and adverbs. Next the class is divided into 2-4 equal teams.
 

C. Practice-

Teacher will demonstrate an example for the class.
The child laughed.She then gives up to 5 adjectives to describe the subject (ex. small, young, cute, fair-haired, or sweet to describe "child"). Then gives up to 5 adverbs to describe the verb (ex. happily, humorously, gleefully, sweetly, joyfully to describe "laughed").


One member chooses a slip of paper with the sentence written on it. He/she then gives up to 5 adjectives to describe the subject. The team then tries to guess the subject. If they are correct, the team scores 1 point. The clue-giver then gives up to 5 adverbs to describe the verb. If the team guesses correctly, they earn 1 points.
If the team misses either the subject or verb, the next team has an opportunity to "steal" the points by having one of their members give one clue.

 

D. Independent Practice-

The team will expand each simple sentence using what they have learned about adjectives and adverbs.
 

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Students who are having difficulties will be grouped with students with a better understanding of the topic.
 

F. Checking for understanding-

Students will be asked if they had and difficulty with this.
