PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A one-week to two-week unit on identifying and correcting run-on sentences, comma splices, and sentence fragments, complete with daily bell ringers, worksheets, quiz, a teacher's guide, and more!

This is unit #18 of Ten-Minute Grammar: Trimester Two. Also available are the other eight units in Trimester Two, all nine units in Trimester One, 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 by discovery to identify and fix three of the most common sentence errors my students make: run-on sentences, comma splices, and sentence fragments. Students practice and review for a week to a week and a half, and then take a final quiz. Several extra-practice worksheets provide 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 Newbery Award-winning The Giver by Lois Lowry.

This 19-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
* A modified unit quiz for students on IEPs
* Plus an additional 18-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!

This is exactly what I have been looking for! It's so hard to find good grammar/mechanics materials written at the high school level, but many of our students do not have these skills. The materials are well organized, and the word documents (with a teacher version) make it easy to customize presentations to match students' needs. My intern and I have scratched our heads over the word scrambles!
On  March 2, 2012Arik Durfee answered:
Thank you so much. I love getting postive feedback like this.

And as for head scratching, you'd be amazed how often I have to get out the teacher's guide because my students are stumped all day on a Wordplay and I can't figure it out either. Fun stuff.

Thanks again!
