I told a story last month about one of my past students who couldn’t for the life of her remember who characters were, what events were, etc, but as soon as I did something funny with each one – WAM! – she got it. It worked!!! So, I made these “funnies” part of my every day lessons. I made them real for her.
Here are our Parts of Speech gestures.
Noun – “person, place, or thing”
Verb – “what we can do” (Make a “V.” And yes, you have to shake it again!)
Adjectives – “what it looks like” or “describes it”
Try it sometime – make it funny and real!! I bet they remember.
