The parts of speech tells how a word works in a sentence.
The parts of speech are noun, pronoun, verb,adjective, adverb, interjection, preposition and conjunction.
Each one has a important job to do.
Knowing the parts of speech of a word will help you understand the word and use it correctly in your writing.
To recognize and use parts of speech in sentences and to enhance the reading ,speaking,listening and writing skills of the students from different cultural background.
The strategy I would use to accomplish this goal is Co-operative learning groups.Cooperative learning is an instructional strategy in which students at various performance level work together in small groups to accomplish a collective task .The students are expected to complete the task without direct or immediate teacher intervention.
First step is to make four stations.Each station will have different types of activities.Station 1.will have flash cards to sort.Station 2 ,will have some worksheets in which they will fill in the missing words and MCQs.
Station 3,will contain some audio visual aids and Station 4 will have some art activities integrated with ELA. This strategy is very effective for all learning style.Students benefit academically ,socially and personally.

Children will be assessed through teacher observation and written reflection.
