***Please be aware: These centers were taken from the 3rd Grade Literacy Centers in my store. If you have purchased those centers you do not need to buy these grammar centers.
These centers are designed to be used in any third-grade classroom. They follow the skill sequence outlined in the 3rd-grade Journeys series published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt*. but, you do not have to be using this reading textbook in order to use the centers in your classroom.
These literacy centers are organized into 6 sets with five weeks in each set. This makes a total of 30 grammar literacy centers.
Each set has a display sign that lists the skills that will be covered in the next five weeks. Then, each week there is a page that you fold in half to have at the center. This little tent gives information, tips, and examples of the grammar skill for that week.
Each center has a set of cards that students will use to sort, according to characteristics or rules for the grammar skill. A response sheet and an answer key for the sorting activity is included.
There is also a single page with 4 sections of written practice for the grammar skill.
As the teacher, you will decide how the sorting activity and one-page practice sheet will be used by your students. You can have the sorting activity in a center for practice through the week and give students the written practice page on Friday for a review or quiz.
