  1. I'll do the first one for you. Then you try the others, and I'll check your work. Note that the PART OF SPEECH isn't the same as what the word does in the sentence.

    Mother = noun
    gave = verb
    me = pronoun
    a = article
    card = noun
    for = preposition
    my = pronoun
    birthday = noun
