ReadWriteThink's 8th Grade Resources

Check out ReadWriteThink's website for a variety of English/language arts resources that can help your child practice the parts of speech. There are lesson plans that you can use at home, along with games, activities, puzzles, comic creators and articles designed to help your child learn.

The 'student interactives' are unique resources on this site because they are visual lessons that the student participates in. Diamante Poems is an interactive that involves parts of speech. Students create poems by filling in various parts of speech, such as adjectives and nouns. In order for these interactives to function properly, you'll need to have a current version of Adobe Flash installed on your computer.

Language Arts Resources from Education Place

The grammar and vocabulary practice available from Houghton Mifflin's Education Place includes eight units of 8th grade grammar enrichment activities. One activity, called Noun Draw, helps kids classify the different types of nouns, such as proper nouns and collective nouns, in a fun and engaging way. Similarly, Pronoun Checkers is an entertaining game that teaches kids about personal, possessive, reflexive and indefinite pronouns. After your 8th grader reviews with these activities, use Education Place's quizzes to test his or her understanding. You will find ten quizzes on 8th grade topics, including nouns, pronouns, verbs and modifiers.
