Are you revising for a grammar test? Is your child revising for a grammar test and you don’t know how to help? Are you a teacher and are unsure if a word is a particular word class? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then this blog post is just for you!
When it comes to Grammar, there is no doubt that there has been a shift in focus from when I was in school. Today, it stands in the spotlight and a large emphasis is put on it. At the end of primary school in the U.K. children sit for a SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) test. The theory behind the grammar craze is that a good understanding of grammar allows children to structure sentences better, to communicate more effectively and raises literacy standards.
In this post I would like to share a great website called Parts of Speech, where you can test some grammar skills and in particular identifying word classes or parts of speech!
If you are revising for a test, then test yourself using this site. Type a sentence, and check to see if you know the word classes. By clicking the POS button, you will be able to see all the word classes, colour-coded! So all the nouns will be one colour, the verbs another and so on. Teachers and parents will also benefit from the use of this site to brush up on their own grammar knowledge and check when in doubt.
Visit Parts of Speech to check the word classes within any sentence. It’s brilliant!
