This is a daily grammar practice program that uses song lyrics to aid in teaching grammar rules. Students practice a new grammar concept each week by doing different tasks each day. This is perfect for students who are preparing to take the ACT and EOC.
The daily tasks are outlined clearly in the preview, but here is a quick overview:
*Mentor sentences (from lyrics as well as matching-themed informational texts)
*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.
*Please note that the Preview is NOT editable, but the purchased one is*
The weekly song is linked to each week. I have found that the songs serve as an awesome timer to keep students on task. Each song/daily task will take around 4-5 minutes to complete. Each song is clean, upbeat, and timeless (mostly because I don't want to have to redo this massive about of work for myself haha!)

****Note**** If you are buying this to use with the original set (for example if you teach year-round), then this will only be a REVIEW of the concepts the original set covered. You will get new songs, articles and questions, but the grammar concepts will remain the same. *****Also note that in week 7 and week 16 the song or content doesn't change. The songs for those weeks are the best I can find to teach prepositions and subjunctive mood, so I'm going to leave them the same.
Grammar lessons include:
Independent and dependent clauses
Introductory phrases/ Prepositional phrases
Avoiding run-on sentences
Colons and dashes
Pronouns (I v/s Me, etc)
