This user-friendly resource is designed to help 4th graders learn the two standards found in the “Conventions of Standard English” section of the 4th Grade Common Core English Language Arts Standards (including all 11 sub-standards). The packet contains two different types of activities. A complete answer key is provided.
The first type consists of easy-to-use sheets that require students to fill in the blanks or make corrections to sample sentences. You may choose to have your students do these sheets as part of a whole-class “word work” lesson, during independent work time or center time, or for homework.
The second type features an “active learning” approach in which students "move through" their practice sentences by acting out specific movements that correspond to the types of changes they need to make. Students record their corrections on paper upon completing the movements. Incorporating movement adds tremendous energy and engagement to your word work sessions and helps children pay greater attention to detail and work with greater enthusiasm.
