My existing Parts of Speech PowerPoint resource focused only on nouns, verbs, pronouns, and adjectives. I knew I wanted to expand the selection to cover adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections as well. I determined the best way to do that was to create three individual PowerPoints, allowing for plenty of practice slides. I knew what I wanted to do, but just hadn't yet had that spark in terms of a theme to base them all. That changed, though, one Sunday evening in February as I watched well-known celebrities walk the red carpet prior to the Oscars! That's it! I thought, I can do an awards ceremony theme! Each part of speech can be a celebrity! I can call it my "Superstars of Grammar" series! And thus, an idea was born...
My next step was to contact the Aim-azing Jena Flanagan from Aim Less Daze! I shared with her my "vision", and how I needed an emcee and 8 characters. I explained that I wanted "Andy Adjective" to be adorned with lots of color and accessories...and I wanted "Victor Verb" to be in an action pose - things like that. She accepted my request and promised to have them ready for me in a week or so. Imagine my excitement when she sent the following images to me! Aren't they incredible?! So detailed! So striking! As with everything Jena has created for me, her final images have been far better than my original vision!
|I just noticed that Jena is having a sale at TpT right now!|
Below are some images of slides from the three Parts of Speech PowerPoint resources I created!
|Episode 1: Nouns, Verbs, & Pronouns|
|Episode 2: Adjectives & Adverbs|
|Episode 3: Prepositions, Conjunctions, Interjections|
So, here are the final creations!
You know what, though? I decided I still can't stop yet! Now I've got plans to do PowerPoints with "a closer look" at these parts of speech! For example, I'll do "A Closer Look on Verbs" - to include helping verbs and linking verbs, and "A Closer Look on Pronouns" - to include interrogative, demonstrative, and indefinite pronouns.
I have a feeling this is only just beginning...
