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.

Spelling Flip Book

Description

The Spelling Flip Book is designed to help young learners become familiar with spelling rules and to incorporate them into their work.

Students can color and personalize their flip books to enhance the spelling learning experience.

I always like encouraging my students to use their flip books as reference sheets when they are working to promote good spelling habits. The goal is that eventually, by using the flipbook when working, the student will begin to remember common errors made in the past and correct them. I have had much success with this strategy in my classes.

I’ve also included a color copy and an answer key – a total of 18 pages.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Valentine’s Day: Find the Equation of a Line Given Two Points”

by 4 the Love of Math
7th – 11th Grade

This is a quick 5 problem hand out. Students are given 5 problems that have two points listed. The student will find the equation of the line, then plot the two points listed and draw a line connecting their dots. This will form the shape of a heart. Students who finish this quickly can color in the heart and/or their paper. I like to display them for Valentine’s Day.

An answer key with each problem worked out is included!

May the odds be ever in your favor, Valentine.
Still betting on you, Valentine.
You have no idea. The effect you can have.
You here to finish me off, Sweetheart?
You love me. Real or Not Real?
Here’s some advice. Be Mine.
You are my dandelion in the spring, Valentine.
Stay with me. Always.
You are radiant as the sun, Valentine.
You’re hotter than Finnick Odair in his underwear. (Warning, that one may not be appropriate for younger students. Use your best judgement.)
