Valentine’s day is just around the corner! Children should be explained the essence of Valentine’s day. I usually tell children that it’s a day to celebrate love. Love is all about caring and sharing. Caring can be giving special attention to your mom, dad or your siblings. Teach them the value of sharing things like their toys or snacks with other children.
Keeping with the tradition of sharing and caring on Valentine’s day, I have come up with this game for children to play in class. Children are bound to fall in love with this game that I have prepared based on the love theme, Cupid Strikes!
This is a game based on grammar and focusing on four ‘parts of speech’ which are easily confused.
Above are the four sorting worksheets where the hearts will be sorted based on whether they are ‘noun verb adjective adverb.’
This nouns verbs adjectives adverbs game is not only fun but educational.
The above hearts sheet has 7 of each of the ‘parts of speech’ being covered. Cut the hearts and then sort them.
Print out the Cupid sheets and the hearts and cut the hearts. Print these on card stock and laminate them for durability.
There are two sheets for hearts which can be practiced separately or together. Each sheet has 28 hearts.
Sort the hearts into nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives. Place them on the Cupid sheets. You will notice that I have used words related to Valentine’s day.
In the above sheet, ‘Cupid strikes the verbs’, we place the hearts with verbs. You might find my choice of words a bit cheesy but it’s Valentine’s day!
Some of the adjectives I have used are true, real, fair, crazy, honest, loving, secret, special, tender etc.
This game will enhance your child’s vocabulary and help them discriminate among nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs.
Record your answers in the sheet provided.
