Last week the students participated in a Noun and Verb speed review in groups. Mrs.O'Leary and Ms.Lipsky read sentences and the students quickly decided if it was a noun or a verb. The students did a great job working together, even when Mrs.O'Leary gave them a tricky word that depended on the context of the sentence. The word was cook, which was a noun in the first sentence:
The cook mixed up the ingredients.
...and a verb in the second.
I love to cook dinner each night.
