PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A one-week to two-week unit on identifying and using nouns and verbs complete with daily bell ringers, worksheets, quiz, a teacher's guide, and more!

This is unit #3 of Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester One. Also available are the other eight units of Trimester One and all nine units of Trimester Two. If you plan on using more than a few Ten-Minute Grammar units during the year, purchasing Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester One and Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester Two in their entirety will save you half the price!

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 recognize difficult-to-identify nouns and verbs, including verb phrases, and to write sentences with complete verbs and properly-used nouns. 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 Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

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.

Absolutely loved this! I loved that it was a word document, and I was able to save just what I needed as a PDF for my students. My students work on iPads, so they worked on the exercises in Adobe. It was the perfect start to the day. The students especially loved the word play. I have been looking for something like this forever! I am going to purchase the yearly package and make this the focus of my grammar program.

A great way to teach grammar when you don't have a lot of time. I used it with my gifted fifth graders. Perfect opening work. They loved the wordplays at the end.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  August 18, 2013,  Buyer asked:
May I see examples of the bell ringers as they appear in the slide show? Are there bell ringers for all concepts?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 18, 2013Arik Durfee answered:
I'm not sure what you mean by seeing examples. If you download the preview file for this unit, it shows at least one day's bell ringer so you can see the format.

If you want to see a whole set of bell ringers, you could download the PROOFREADING MARKS unit or the SUBJECTS AND PREDICATES unit, both of which are available for free. Then you'll be able to see exactly what a full unit looks like.

To answer your second question, yes. All of the instruction in these units takes place during the bell ringer activities. So any skill or concept they're expected to know by the end of the unit will be covered, usually multiple times, in the bell ringers.

Hope that helps. Thanks for the question!
