PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A one-week to two-week unit on commonly misspelled homophones complete with daily bell ringers, worksheets, quiz, a teacher's guide, and more!

This is unit #2 of Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester One. Also available are the other eight units in Trimester One, all nine units in Trimester Two, and nine more in Trimester Three. If you plan on using more than a few Ten-Minute Grammar units during the year, purchasing full-trimester units or the FULL-YEAR megadownload will save a lot of time and money:
Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester One
Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester Two
Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester Three

TMG: FULL YEAR!

Ten-Minute Grammar is a comprehensive grammar curriculum based on the Common Core Standards for seventh-grade, eighth-grade, or ninth-grade students. Using only the first ten minutes of each day, this unit helps students learn to distinguish between and correct usage errors with some of the most commonly misspelled homophones. Students practice and review for a week to a week and a half, and then take a final quiz. Two extra-practice worksheets provides differentiation and remediation for students struggling with the concepts. To give the students exposure to quality published writing, some of the practice example sentences are drawn from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Homophones covered in this unit include:
* There vs. Their vs. They're
* Your vs. You're
* Where vs. Wear (as well as We're and Were)
* Its vs. It's
* Here vs. Hear
* To vs. Too vs. Two
* Which vs. Witch

This 17-page unit includes everything you'll need for up to two weeks of grammar instruction:
* Seven days of bell-ringer activities
* Daily wordplay activities
* Two double-sided worksheets
* One unit quiz
* Plus an additional 16-page teacher's guide with answer keys and extra lesson instructions

The daily bellwork or bell ringers can be copied onto transparencies for an overhead projector or projected digitally onto a white board or a SmartBoard.

Unit files will come as a PDF file, but the folder also includes the original Word files in case you want to make small tweaks to a page or two (which I often like to do when I purchase lesson materials from someone else.) Download the FREE preview in PDF format for a sample of what you'll get in the unit.

Enjoy, and remember to WRITE A REVIEW!

Great way to squeeze in those grammar lessons!
On  October 5, 2012Arik Durfee answered:
Thanks. And "squeeze in" is a good way to put it. We have so much to teach, and frankly we probably enjoy teaching the other parts of our curriculum a lot more, so I hope these units are helping with that.
