English Grammar Cheat Sheet

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)

❒ 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 SCIENCE LESSON – “Scientific Method: Identifying Independent & Dependent Variables”

by The Science Vault
6th – 8th Grade

This powerpoint introduces the concept of identifying independent and dependent variables and then offers practice in identifying manipulated and measured variables in several scenarios. PPT and Google Slides version included for flexibility. The scenarios are real-life type problem statements such as “A lack of sleep will increase weight gain” and “Consuming fish oil will improve memory”

It’s a great introduction to the difference between manipulated and measured variables.

Also included in this Freebie is a Google Tips Guide for using Google Slides in an online, blended environment. Handy for both distance learning and blended, in-person learning!

All of my powerpoints take advantage of the animations feature to avoid the “head-down-madly-copying” syndrome that powerpoints can sometimes cause. With animations, you can control the flow of information better – and that keeps class discussions more lively and student engagement high.

Parts of Speech Grammar Circles (Superhero Themed)

Description

Superhero themed Parts of speech Grammar Circle Unit

One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit grammar in 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 other than to facilitate and supervise.

Once these circles have been implemented and students know who their group members are and what they are supposed to do, it is a great prep to leave a supply teacher.

The package includes:

1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (27 pages)

Activities included focus on:

❒nouns

❒adjectives

❒verbs

❒adverbs

❒prepositions

❒conjunctions

❒putting it all together

❒correct use of pronouns

❒who and whom

❒that and which

❒who’s and whose

❒that and who

❒pronoun case

❒pronoun agreement

❒active and passive voice

❒verb tenses (present, past, future)

❒verb uses (consistency in verb tenses)

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.

Also included are free Superhero Themed Parts of Speech Posters to decorate your class.

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 learn parts of speech.

Step 2: Select Location from Home Slide to be quizzed on by clicking on any country name / label in any order you wish. (Quiz students on as many or as few regions as you would like)

—> Once you select a location to be quizzed on, you will be presented a blank map with the label of the selected country at the bottom.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Language Arts Comprehension Check: Ten Sentence Format”

by Connie
4th – 12th Grade

Should educators tweet, “Good Bye” to proper paragraphs? Are these backbones of formal and informal writing becoming an endangered specie? Do students need to reinforce their basic understanding of the elements of a good paragraph in order to write and develop more in-depth essays? Do students need to learn how to write about the literature that they are reading?

This Ten Sentence Format will accomplish all of that. It is perfect for clarifying and reinforcing the parts of an essay, for using as an announced or unannounced quiz when teachers of students grades 6-12 wish to check reading and writing comprehension and for general writing practice or warm-ups.

It reviews and reinforces the basic structure of a paragraph: Introduction (Hook, overview, Thesis statement), Body (Main Idea, supporting details), and Conclusion (Concluding statement, last thought{I call this a kicker, as the last statement should end with a bang and not a whimper}).

Once students master this concept, they can easily be shown how the Main Idea paragraphs can be detailed and developed into more paragraphs to create a complete essay.

This product forms a part of the Writing Module in my book, The House of Comprehension. I am offering it here as a Free Sample Lesson so you can see the quality of the material in The House of Comprehension. Teachers who want to show their students how to build strong houses of comprehension can find 40 more activities like this in the book.

For another activity from “The House of Comprehension” that will strengthen writing, try
Writing – Just Say, “No” to Dull Writing

Here is the link to the complete resource, “The House of Comprehension” –
EBook – “The House of Comprehension”

Enjoy a Teach It Now Day,
Connie
