We are doing a little parts of speech review here at the end of the year. So, I created some simple Parts of Speech Posters for my 2nd and 3rd graders.

FREE Parts of Speech Posters
Included in this free download, you’ll find NINE free posters for parts of speech. They include: Noun, Verb, Adjective, Pronoun, Adverb, Preposition, Conjunction, Interjection, & Article. It includes TWO sizes for each poster 1- full-page and 2- half-page in color and blackline.
*These posters were added in August, 2022.
Each poster has the part of speech listed at the top and then information about each one below. They are simple, which no extra clip art or pictures.
This is what each poster says:
- person – a girl
- place – the store
- animal -a cat
- thing – my shoe
- idea – in love
- an action word – He jumps up and down. or She ate her lunch.
- a state of being – I am happy. or They are big.
- how many- five ducks
- 5 senses – a foul odor, shiny car, sweet drink, bumpy road, or loud bird
- which one- that book
Pronoun: Takes the place of a noun
- Pete went to school. – He went to school.
- I gave the book to Sue. – I gave it to Sue.
- How? – loudly, kindly, fast, quietly
- Where? here, there, inside, outside
- When? & How often? – every day, now
Preposition: indicates a location or a relationship / used to start a prepositional phrase
- I sat under the tree.
- The mail is in the mailbox.
- Let’s meet after the show.
Conjunction: “connecting words” that join words, phrases, or sentences
Interjection: a word or phrase that expresses emotion
- Ouch! That hurt!
- Oh no! She dropped it.
- Eeek! I’m so excited!
Article: a type of adjective telling if a noun is definite or not
- Definite: the boy, the lamp
- Indefinite: a dog, an orange*
*The article an comes before nouns that begin with a vowel sound.
Extra Note: With an, we are listening for vowel SOUND, not just paying attention to letters as vowels. This means, a word like hour needs an before it (an hour) because the h is silent. Therefore, hour begins with a vowel sound.
Hang them up on a wall or create a simple flip book by hole-punching the top corner and clipping to a ring.
*As of 2/2019, these posters have been updated: animal in the Noun poster, a Preposition poster, a Conjunction poster, and an Interjection poster. An Article poster was also added 8/2022.
