Webquest: Parts of Speech


taken from


Welcome to the Parts of Speech Webquest ! This is an opportunity for you to review what you have learned and hopefully have a little fun!

Words are everywhere. We use them everyday and it is important that we know how to use them correctly. The parts of speech are essential building blocks of the English language. Each part has its own function and importance in the English grammar.

Your goal with this webquest is to create a "cheat sheet" for yourself that contains the main aspects about the eight parts of speech in English (Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction and Interjection). This webquest also allows you to strengthen your technology skills, exercise your creativity, practice your research skills, appreciate the complexity of the English language, experience the fun of language, and visit resource sites to discriminate between different parts of speech.

Our Classroom

In our classroom you will find community, consistency, cooperation, tradition and students who are self directed.
We have three basic rules:

1. Respect Yourself
2. Respect Others
3. Respect Your School

We will meet as a class and decide what these rules mean for us and then we will create our own sub-group of rules under each of the three previously stated rules.

Behavioral expectations for the children are clearly defined and the consequences are also explained to each child. In our classroom we operate on a 100 point system each day. At the end of each day, you will receive a behavior report from our classroom notifying you of how many points your child earned for the day. Please sign the report, comment if necessary and return it with your child the following day.
