This is a daily grammar practice program that provides grammar skills in short 4-5 minute lessons each day. Students practice a new grammar concept each week by doing a different task each day. This is perfect for students who are preparing to take the ACT, SAT, or EOC.
The daily tasks are outlined clearly in the preview, but here is a quick overview:
*Opportunities for correcting grammar mistakes
*Writing practice using the grammar focus of the week and a weekly informational text with a focus on sentence combining.
* Test prep /ACT Prep / End of Course Prep
* Figures of Speech /Literary Devices
You will also get a 5 question quiz each week that can be used as a pre and post quiz
This PowerPoint is COMPLETELY editable. I know that English teachers use different definitions for figures of speech and grammar rules, so you can edit these to fit your needs.
There is weekly song linked to each week that serves as a common theme for the week's sentences and informational text. The song lyrics and direct audio are NOT provided in this resource. However, I have found that music serves as an awesome timer to keep students on task. Each song/daily task will take around 4-5 minutes to complete. Each suggested musical timer is clean, upbeat, and timeless.
Grammar lessons include:
Independent and dependent clauses
Introductory phrases/ Prepositional phrases
Avoiding run-on sentences
Colons and dashes
Pronouns (I v/s Me, etc)
Shifting verb tenses
Irregular past tense verbs
Comparitive and Superlative adjectives
I also have a second edition available that covers the same concepts but uses different songs and articles. This can be used as further review if you teach year-long or as a way to not duplicate the material if you teach the same students twice.
