Super Amazing

"Words Are Categorical" Set of 4 Books (A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What is a Noun? ~ A Lime, a Mime, a Pool of Slime: More About Nouns ~ Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? ~ Quirky, Jerky, Extra Perky: More About Adjectives) - Brian P. Cleary, Jenya Prosmitsky, Brian Gable

This series, which actually includes several more books, is incredible! What better way to have students learn different concepts of language than in a book, right? These books are so entertaining. If you are wanting to teach your students about nouns, verbs, and adjectives and are not sure where to begin, look no further. These books are a great way to get your students thinking about those very concepts and they are fun stories. It doesn't get much better than that!


Use in the classroom: I would read these (for each unit) and have a fun activity to go along with it, like a noun, verb, or adjective word find. I might also have the students interactive while I read the story by raising their hands or standing up every time they hear a noun, verb, or adjective. 


Target grade level: 2nd-5th
