Grammar

Still image for this video
1. Nouns - Do a noun hunt around the house, make a list of what you can find. You could make it competitive and see who can find the most in 5 minutes, or who can find the most unusual nouns, or give it a theme e.g. nouns linked to cooking, art, nature.
2. Interesting Adjectives - Pick one over used word a day, write it on a piece of paper and then using colourful pens/pencils write as many alternatives for that word as you can. E.g. big - colossal, vast, enormous, grand etc. Some word to get you started could be nice, small, loud, quiet, old, new, kind, mean, silly, happy, sad, scared, and pretty. To find alternatives for words you could use a thesaurus if you have one, use the synonyms tool in word (right click on the word and then go to the synonyms option).
3. Verbs – Join in with the verb song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ineCCpqpZrM can you make up your own verses with different verbs? You can play Simon says and use imperative verbs for the instructions e.g. clap, hop, spin, run, sit, stop, jump. You could write instructions for how to make or cook something and write all the verbs (e.g. cut, chop, mix, attach, paint) in a different colour.
4. Adverbs – You could play Simon says again but this time add adverbs to make it even more fun! E.g. clap slowly (clap it the verb – it tells you what to do and slowly is the adverb – it tells you how to do it), run quickly, click quietly, spin gracefully, sing beautifully etc. You could also play with adverbs while you are reading e.g. read that sentence again – quickly, slowly, gruffly, fearlessly, boldly, timidly, shyly, thoughtfully, quizzically. How many different types of voice can you do?
