Here we have a set of Parts of speech worksheets for free download to help you teach and revise. These worksheets have been designed for grade 5 to 6 students as they are more complex that our other Parts of speech activites and worksheets.
However we will link to those below as well.
Grade 5 and 6 parts of speech focus more on how to use these grammar terms ratehr than jsut recognise them. To help with that we have included a handout as the first page that already explains what each part of speech is for reference.
Then the tasks go on to how they are used.
What Are The Parts Of Speech In English and How Are they used?
As mentioned there are eight parts of speech in English. Just in case you need to know we have listed them here. Below this will be links to some of our resources that cover these different parts of speech.
- Nouns are words for things, they tell us who or what the sentence is about (e.g., student, doo, dog, pen).
- Pronouns are words which take the place of a noun (e.g., she, it, myself, who).
- Articles are words either definite (the) or indefinite a/an which state if something is a specific noun or not.
- Verbs do something in the sentence as well as telling us about action and helping predicate other parts of speech such as nouns and adjectives (e.g., walks, laughs, talk, swim, be).
- Adverbs describe how things happen in the sentence or add extra information about verbs, adjectives and other adverbs (e.g. carefully, quickly).
- Adjectives describe things in the sentence and often go before nouns (e.g., bright, cute small, tall).
- Prepositions show the relationship between other words in the sentence or state where something is (e.g., in, on, under, behind), there are also prepositions of time ( before, after, at)
- Conjunctions join things together such as words, sentences or phrases (e.g., and, for, but).
