Teaching or reviewing parts of speech is fun with these “Pop Art” parts of speech coloring pages. I have teamed up with Brain Waves Instruction to bring you and your students these unique and engaging parts of speech coloring pages. These coloring pages have three levels; beginner, intermediate and advanced — great for “discreet” differentiation. Perfect for grades 3 through 8, with a basic version for 2nd grade coming very soon.
Along with our complete resource (see it HERE), we created a special FREE SAMPLE for Earth Day using a recycle symbol. You will find a beginner page and an intermediate page included in this FREE sample (see it HERE). At the beginning of every level, you will find handouts to use with your students. Use these handouts to go along with your teaching, as a pre-assessment of what students already know, as a fun review, or as a post-assessment at the end of your teaching unit.
We’ve included a large variety of coloring pages in the full resource, including an apple, bat, turkey, Christmas tree, snowman, mittens, bee, “LOVE” symbol, raindrops, and ice cream cone. These pages are selected to be used throughout the year, featuring images appropriate for your activities during autumn, winter, spring, and summer and some of the major holidays included in those seasons. See it HERE.
Beginner coloring pages
On these coloring pages, you will find that words representing the parts of speech are written directly onto the coloring page. Students will identify the part of speech and color it according to the color key at the top of the page.
Beginner pages review 6 parts of speech: noun, verb, pronoun, adjective, adverb, and preposition. The FREE SAMPLE resource includes a coloring page featuring the recycle symbol with the same six parts of speech reviewed.
Intermediate coloring pages
For this parts of speech coloring activity, students will get two pages. The first page will have a variety of sentences with the parts of speech to be identified underlined. The second page is a coloring page that students will color according to their answers on the first page and the color key at the top of the coloring page.
For example, if the answer to number 1 is “noun,” students would color all the “1’s” on the coloring page red. If the answer for number 2 (on page 1) is “adjective,” students would color all the “2’s” on the coloring page (page 2) green. And so on for all colors and spaces on the coloring page.
Intermediate pages review 6 parts of speech: noun, verb, pronoun, adjective, adverb, and preposition. There are 16 sentences on each page. You will need to supply students with red, yellow, blue, green, purple, and orange in crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
Advanced coloring pages
For this parts of speech coloring activity, students will have 2 pages, just like the intermediate pages. The first page will have a variety of sentences with a part of speech underlined. The second page is a coloring page that students will color according to their answers on the first page and the color key at the top of the coloring page.
The difference between the advanced and intermediate pages is that the advanced pages review 8 parts of speech: noun, verb, pronoun, adjective, adverb, preposition, interjection, and conjunction. And there are 20 to 26 sentences per page so that students can get more practice. You will need red, yellow, blue, green, purple, orange, light blue, and light green in crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
Once the page is colored, students can cut out the final design at the bottom of the page and voilá they have a stunning, colorful example of “Pop Art” created from their parts of speech coloring pages. These make for great classroom bulletin board displays!
