Several teachers who are enjoying my Full-Year Bell Ringers
requested another series of slides to use with their other classes, so here’s yet another 19 weekly grammar editing lessons to help you address the most common errors in middle-school and high-school writing.
This M.U.G. Shot Pack #4 (Mechanics, Usage, and Grammar) is gives you all of the materials you’ll need to get your students working together to proofread real-world writing examples.
I present these lessons on Mondays because I like alliteration (M.U.G. Shot Monday has a nice ring, no?), but you can use them anytime you want. Most semesters run 18 weeks, but I threw in an extra M.U.G. Shot in case you have an extra Monday (or whatever day) on your school calendar.
Students write down the flawed sentence and then work together to edit/make corrections. After the class agrees on all of the edits made by the student writing at the board, I go over the marks, explaining the rules that apply. After three sessions, I collect the students’ papers and give points for accuracy.
• 19 weeks of 10-minute grammar practice sessions (38 total slides) in both Notebook format (for SMARTBoard users) and Powerpoint (for all users)
• 19-page PDF to use for student handouts and quizzes
• 38-page PDF of full semester materials, both unmarked and corrected sentences (useful for absent students or independent/homeschool study)
SMARTBoard users will find interactive slides with window shades and digital ink tools, while Powerpoint users can project the slides onto a regular white board and have the students use regular dry erase pens to make their edits.
All slides come with a corrected version, which you can share with the class and discuss or use on your own as a key.
