Word class problems
Task A - Esther's Tomcat
We've highlighted some of the words in the poem and duplicated them for you in the box below the poem.
We'd like you to read through the poem again and decide which word classes the emboldened words belong to. We have chosen central examples of the different word classes, so in theory you should breeze through this task. Easy peasey!
Now "Drag and Drop" the words below into what you think are the appropriate "word class" boxes [click done when you have decided].
