  2. Divide the participants into groups or pairs, depending on the number of participants.
  3. Distribute index cards or sticky notes and writing utensils to each group.
  4. Explain that each group will be responsible for brainstorming words that fall under a specific part of speech.
  5. Assign each group or pair a different part of speech to focus on.
  6. Instruct the groups to write down as many words as they can think of that belong to their assigned part of speech. Encourage them to think creatively and come up with a variety of examples.
  7. After a given time, gather the index cards or sticky notes from each group.
  8. Have each group take turns presenting their words. As they present, they should explain the meaning and usage of each word within their assigned part of speech.
  9. Encourage other participants to ask questions or contribute additional words to the dictionary.
  10. As each group presents, add their words to the corresponding section on the poster paper or whiteboard, creating a collaborative parts of speech dictionary.
  11. Once all the groups have presented, review the completed parts of speech dictionary as a group, discussing the words and their functions within sentences.
  12. Keep the parts of speech dictionary displayed in the classroom or workspace for future reference and reinforcement.


To make the activity more interactive, you can turn it into a game. Assign point values to different parts of speech, and award points to groups for each word they contribute. The group with the highest total score at the end can be declared the Parts of Speech Masters.
