I Know That!



We are working on identifying parts of speech. We have been identifying them in the context of sentences, but some testing requires students to identify parts of speech from a list such as multiple choice questions. Here is a website that we can use to drill on parts of speech in that context. Here is the link.

The site also has all sorts of math and science games as well. Here is a link to the home page.

While sites like this should not replace other ways of teaching these concepts, they still have a place for students to have a little fun while reviewing or being introduced to the concepts.

Dear Mr C and Classroom.

Hello, my name is Prshant, I live in Hamilton in New Zealand and I like to play soccer. I'm 11 years old. I have some questions for your students - Why don't they wear any kind of uniform? What sports do your students like to play? Do you have games that they play at lunchtime.

@students from Room 8, I will be sure to have my students get back to you with the information you want. It will be a couple days though before we are back to school.

hi its nice to see that your students like to write as most students dont value writing. What you should do is have a day were you have to wear all green for a save the planet day or something it would make a big difference
