Furthermore, using the technologies available to us can help to keep students engaged and make learning fun and interesting that way students come to school wanting to learn instead of wanting to leave.

It also offers several short quizes students can take to test their knowledge.ReadeWriteThink - is a great source for teachers looking for new lesson plan ideas, prinouts, and interactive activities for students. It also offers links to professional development resources as well as parent and afterschool resources.Literacy Center Education Network - site is a wonderful source for learning games and printouts that can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. Many, if not all of the activities found on the site are aligned with Common Core State Standards for elementary age students.
  • With teacher guidance and support, first grade students can use this blog page, and the Webquest it includes in putting their knowledge to the test in a fun way. Students are given the task of creating their own “cheat sheets” about the parts of speech. The size and complexity of the task can be differentiated according to the teacher’s and students’ needs. For example, first graders may not yet be familiar with interjections so this part of the “cheat sheet” can easily be left out. The blog also contains links to site like Yahooligans, and BrainPop where students can play games complete other interactive activities to aid learning. Older students may not need as much teacher guidance in navigating the blog and linked websites.

  • can show clips of the movie from BrainPop as part of one or more lessons on the parts of speech. Students can then complete the quiz and activities offered with classmates or individually.
  • This word sort, created using Kidspiration, could be used as a way for students to practice what they have learned about the parts of speech or as a form of assessment after learning each of the parts. Students are able to type vocabulary words into the blue symbols and then categorize them according to their part of speech. To further enhance their learning students can then use the interactive Writing View to write sentences for some or all of the vocabulary words. Doing so reinforces what they’ve learned in class and helps them to further develop the necessary twenty-first century learning skills.
