Mystery Picture Parts of Speech FREEBIE

My sixers love them! Mystery pictures! I first used them years ago when I taught math for a brief stint. I had an OLD packet of color-by-number math sheets that took the drudge out of routine computational work. When I no longer taught math, I passed the packet on to the math teacher who, by the way, never used the sheets.

I saw these mystery pictures again this past Christmas. Only instead of a math orientation, they were designed for students to practice parts of speech. And they were aligned with the Common Core State Standards. YES, right up my alley! I purchased a few sets on Teachers Pay Teachers and presented them to my fifth and sixth grade Language Arts students. They were a hit! The kiddos asked for more.

Instead of returning to Teachers Pay Teachers for more, I decided to try my hand at creating my own Mystery Pictures. I came up with a few that were quite acceptable and a bit more challenging than those that I had purchased. My sixers were impressed so I offered them at my own TpT store and they've been selling nicely ever since! Especially my Angry Birds Mystery Picture. Check it out HERE. With this one being so popular, I've been developing yellow and blue angry birds and a green piggy mystery picture for parts of speech. They will be ready in a few days and will be available for purchase in my TpT Store.

The luck of the Irish touched me and I got into the holiday spirit so I developed several mystery pictures for St. Patrick's Day. These are offered separately and as a bundle in my TpT store. They feature a leprechaun, a leprechaun's hat, and a rainbow. You can view them in my store window to the right of this post. I also created a pot of shamrocks and have decided to offer it as a FREEBIE! This Language Arts mystery picture features VERBS: helping/linking, present tense, past tense, and future tense. You can download it HERE or by clicking on the link below the picture.
