English Grammar Cheat Sheet

Product Description

This “Cheat Sheet” was designed to help students while writing in English. This at a glance 2 page sheet is colorful and has an easy to find layout to help students remember certain important things while they write.

I allow my students to use this in class when writing a test. This is not a grammar lesson, but it will remind students about the grammar they’ve learned in the past.

Some of the reminders included:

– parts of speech

– transitional words

– quotation marks (how and when to use them)

– basic sentence structure

– spelling tips (plurals of nouns and IE rule)

– puncutaion rules (apostrophe, colon, semicolon

The other side of the page has comma rules:

– with coordinate conjunctions

-with introductory elements

– with other elements (dates, parenthetical expression, nouns in a direct address)

– with adjectives

-with appositives

It also contains tips on things to avoid, such as writing a paragraph shorter than 4 sentences. And, it contains a list of things to do, such as make sure that your paragraphs contain at least 2 pieces of evidence.

It’s teaching made easy!
