This lesson targets 3rd grade writers.  Students must spend time learning parts of speech.  This lesson gives students a chance to both review the parts of speech and apply the skill in a way that will keep them engaged.  Students are able to interact with each other in a variety of ways both in person and on a classroom blog.  The lesson is written in a clear and step by step manner for easy replication.

Technical Remarks:

Users must set up a classroom blog or similar way for students to record and comment on each others' sentences.  Users need a common spreadsheet or google docs page for students to complete the initial word sort.

The lesson addressed the problem and was appropriate for the grade level.  The activity would increase interest and involvement.  The utilization of Google Docs is a great way to accumulate the words into their area.  The blog is a good evaluation tool for sentence structure results.  What if someone misclassifies a word? Will someone else help correct them?  Will the sentences be proof read before they are put on the blog or could this be another way to do active correction by others?  Good lesson.

Technical Remarks:

No problems accessing the lesson plan.
