Investigating Language!

3/4C students participate in word study sessions each week.

During recent word study lessons, we have been learning about parts of speech.

Specifically, we have investigated:

  • Common nouns
  • Proper nouns
  • Pronouns
  • Adjectives
  • Verbs
  • Adverbs

There are other parts of speech to learn too, as well as a variety of other grammar terms, so we have these posters in our classroom to refer to.

Adjectives and adverbs make writing more interesting to read. Learning about these parts of speech will help our writing skills develop.

We are currently focussing on narratives in writing. Today, we completed a narrative investigation about ‘language’. We read the picture book, Who Goes There? by Karma Wilson.

We stopped to discuss the interesting common nouns, proper nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. We recorded them on big charts.

Students then selected a picture story book from our class collection to investigate the language. They recorded the nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs on their iPads as they read.

By the end of the lesson we had many, many words on our language charts!
