Memory fan as student reference for Parts of Speech.Language Arts reference fan: teaching nouns, verbs, adjectives and all common parts of speech.I use fans a lot as desktop/folder memory resources for facts and information that students need handy, helping make them independent learners.

There is a blade for basics; nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections and articles.I have a set for the class that I have printed and laminated. After printing, cut, laminate and re-cut. Then I've punched holes and assembled together with a split pin.These are great resources for students to have on desks or in folders for reference, until they understand the concepts. They close up into a tidy stack. Each child also has one that he/she assembled. The student copies were printed on card, but I don't laminate them. Younger children 6-7 may need assistance punching the holes.This is a great resource to allow students to work independently on my Parts of Speech Task Cards, nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives.
