Why in the world not? The problem is that teaching parts of speech at school has become so mundane, as have other subject matters, unless you have the good luck of landing a pro-active teacher who goes out of the way to actually engross the attention and yearning of the kids through imagination and activities. But that is sadly not something that happens very often.
I had the pleasure of teaching this very topic to a bunch of kids I’m tutoring in creative writing. The challenge was to keep them from giving out bored sighs as I wrote ‘Verbs’ on the board. What followed was surprisingly fun to watch. I felt the need to share with parents out there who can just as easily do this activity at home as well, with kids from first grade all the way upt o 5th or even 6th.
