FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Comprehension Activity: Score With the Literature Super Bowl”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

After a weekend of football playoff games, I woke up this morning with Pigskin Fever. In keeping with the spirit of the football season, I am offering you my literature review product, Score With the Literature Super Bowl. It ties together all of the elements of literature and how they form the structure of any literary text, while preparing students for the assessment.

I am offering it because I absolutely love how it engages and energizes students to review the novel or narrative nonfiction book that they have been studying. This comprehension analysis activity not only checks students’ understanding of facts, ideas and details, but it also assesses their analytic and interpretive comprehension, ergo, it develops their higher level thinking skills.

The Teacher’s Notes in Score With the Literature Super Bowl include specific directions for creating and playing the game, as well as all game pieces-football cards for the point values and questions, a spinner, and a score sheet.

With this teamed activity, students will quit playing their off-task Desktop Football with that folded triangular paper football that they flick toward their index finger goal posts. Instead, they will be singing,
“I’ve been waiting all week for this review
The tough get rough when they’ve gotta’ clue.
The last one standing gets an A for the game
After this day you’ll remember my name.”
(adapted from the song, “I’ve Been Waiting All Day For Sunday Night” sung by Carrie Underwood
and set to the tune” I Hate Myself for Loving You” by Joan Jett).

Sentences – Grammar Circles for easy and effective grammar

Product Description

Teach grammar in a creative and meaningful way. No more boring grammar. grammar

Simplify your life and make grammar fun and effective.

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit in grammar with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.

I found a solution!

Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, directions, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (16 pages)

Activities included focus on:

-the logistics of the sentence (the basic parts)

-the prepositional phrase

-the adjective phrase

-the adverb phrase

-the verbal phrase

-the appositive phrase

-the independent and subordinate clauses

-subjects and predicates

-fragments

-run-on sentences

-types of sentences

2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.

3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.

For those who are from Ontario, Canada – this unit adheres to the Grade 9 English Curriculum (academic). The unit can be taught in any grade to about sentences.

(27 pages total for this unit)

LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON–Making Inferences with Life Mottos

Life Mottos for  Making Inferences

Unique! Effective! Easy to Use! The four lessons in making inferences contain well-known adages that are derived from centuries of human experiences. When matching these truisms to their underlying meanings, students practice making inferences from what they read, a difficult inferential comprehension skill for some.
