We started by using this visual from Amy Anastas on TPT. Then, we brainstormed our own list of people, places, things, and animals.
We did this "Pot of Gold" noun and verb sorting activity (which I can no longer find on TPT :-(. Then we took the words and I had the kids make their own sentences.
Then we labeled them together on the board and the kids drew pictures to accompany their sentences.
Stay tuned for more of our grammar adventures throughout the rest of the year!
