Short lessons on essential grammar topics include a reproducible passage that highlights key skills in context. Engaging, low-prep activities, such as Spin-a-Conjunction, Preposition Poetry, and “Agreement or No Agreement?” Game Show, motivate students and help them apply what they’ve learned. Lessons and activities cover parts of speech, subject-verb agreement, antecedents, phrases and clauses, and more!
Complete each writing activity yourself and save all prewriting and drafts. Show these to students (via overhead or handout) so they can see the writing process. You can also deliberately model specific vocabulary, conventions, sentence structures, and organizational patterns.
