FUN! EFFECTIVE! MOTIVATING! EASY TO USE!
HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ENGLISH GRAMMAR STORIES are an interesting way to practice previously taught grammar and spelling skills with intermediate, middle and high school level students.
Each 20-30 sentence story focuses on the most common errors in homophones, subject-verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, common spelling errors, irregular verbs, and irregular plurals.
The stories contain interesting historical and cultural information about some Christmas traditions. An effort has been made to have the grammar practice as secular as possible. A corrected version in paragraph form is included.
1. Holiday Tree
2. Holiday Star
3. Colored Lights and Ornaments
4. Greeting Cards
5. Holiday Foods
6. Holiday Plants
7. Santa Claus
These stories are good review practice for regular English, ESL, and Special Ed students because they improve grammar, spelling, reading, and writing.
HOLIDAY TRADITIONS ENGLISH GRAMMAR STORIES can be used as homework, seat work, and/or preparation for state writing tests. Each tale fits on one, two-sided sheet of paper.
The stories are simple to use and to grade because each sentence contains only one grammatical error. Students enjoy trying to find it!
Every story includes an ANSWER KEY with an explanation for each correction. An Extra Credit WRITING PROMPT is also added.
For hassle-free grammar practice in an enjoyable format, try these stories in your classes, and watch your students actually LIKE grammar practice!
For EXTRA FUN in class: Pair two students together, and give points for each correct answer. Total all points on a wall chart over several days, and award small prizes when students reach a certain point total. Students love the competition, and the pairs enjoy helping each other find the errors.
