Parts of Speech Activity/Revision Cards

Parts of Speech Activity/Revision Cards


Product Description

Bring a bit of movement and 'game' to parts of speech!  With this resource you can print and laminate 6 activity cards (for 6 groups of students) then get them to race or 'round robin' to attach labels to identify which part of speech is shown in each of the 10 boxes on each card. I attach the labels to pegs, but you could also use sticky-tack or velcro dots. The cards face two ways so that you can get a couple of students at each 'end' and all 4 will still be reading the right way up! Divide your class into 6 groups and watch them go! Students can mark their own work with answer cards that help explain why a word is a particular part of speech. Alternatively you could sit sets at the back of the room for early finishers to have a go at, or even back activity cards with answers to make flashcards!


If you want to set homework, send students the digital set. This is in Google Slide format so that students can type in their answers.  Alternatively, you could print these off as handouts so students could simply write their answers in.  Answers for each card are provided separately so that you can make them available one at a time as students work their way through each set.


With this resource you get:

2 SETS OF ACTIVITY 'PEG CARDS' to print and laminate - one in black and white for clearer photocopying for those on a budget, and one in full color (6 vibrant colors). Within each set there are:

  • 6 activity cards, each with different parts of speech to name. All with different and beautiful borders thanks to to Creative Clips by Krista Wallden – visit her store at .
  • Answers for each activity card with explanations as to why that example is a certain part of speech and a few tips in how to remember parts of speech too!
  • 2 sets of labels for each card - a difficult set (more concise eg Adverb of manner ) and an 'Easy' set (relatively speaking - eg Adverb). Great for differentiation or junior classes as well as seniors. Labels are individually numbered so that when one drops on the floor, you know what set it's from. Difficult sets use lowercase lettering, easier set is in block capitals - so you won't get those mixed up either!
  • Teacher instructions regarding how to prep and use this resource.

A GOOGLE SLIDE VERSION to share with students to work digitally.  Alternatively, print each off as a handout for them to write on. Within this part of the resource you get:

  • A Google Slide doc of all 6 activity cards and their labels. Each card has a space below each example where students type their answer regarding which part of speech is highlighted. Students can choose which set of labels to use (difficult or easier).
  • Answers for each set of activity cards in individual files. That way you can make these available one set at a time so they can mark as they go. Eg: "All do set 1 for homework this week", then at the end of the week you can share the answers just for that set. Then the following week, complete set 2 and so on.
  • Teacher instructions.


Difficult and time-consuming to make (Aaagh, trust me!), this will save you plenty of time and provide a hands-on learning for your students.

  • Sharing/Copying this Resource

    A lot of work went into this.  I’d prefer you kept this resource to yourself.  I’m happy for you to share larger products (like the Achievement Standard and Unit Standard tasks) with others in your department, but this is just a wee price.  Buy your own, and let others buy theirs.  Cheers!  😊
