English Grammar Cheat Sheet


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)

❒ punctuation 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.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “The an Word Family: Phonics and Writing Fundamentals”

by Ms Joanne
Kindergarten – 1st Grade

This Phonics and Writing resource helps students master the “an” word family while also practicing basics such as letter formation and sentence writing. It contains the following components:

A mini-stories to introduce the an family AAA Acrobat eats a NNN Nut and all his friends say, “an”. A second copy of the story with audio is included in the ZIP file.

Printing Practice Practices upper and lower case “a” and “n”. There is also a sentence with “an” words to trace and students draw a picture to match the sentence to practice reading and visualization.

Word Work 2 pages practicing onsets, rimes, reading and spelling.

Sentence Writing 2 Pages:

1. Students choose 3 words from the an family, draw a picture of it and write a sentence with the word. High frequency words are also included on the page. This activity is especially helpful in getting reluctant or struggling writers to write a complete sentence, while allowing more capable students to write to their ability.

2. Students are given a page with a picture of a man and a van and create a sentence using those words and the picture as inspiration.
