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
****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 song timer suggestions, 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.
