Why teach students about grammar? Grammar, is the foundation for communication — the better the grammar, the clearer the message, the more likelihood of understanding the message’s intent and meaning. If we teach students to use and to understand grammar, they will communicate better, understand what other's are saying better, and even become better readers and writers. These screeners will help to pinpoint which grammar areas that would be most beneficial for a student to work on with a teacher or therapist.
We hope that you find these illustrated screeners useful for baseline data gathering and progress monitoring for your students working on grammar development. We know that treatment sessions can be short (sometimes less than a half hour) and that the ability to collect data quickly is important. That is why we made these screeners quick and easy to administer and easy to score (all include 10 questions that will give you a percentage quickly.) Please take the data collected and include it on a student’s daily, monthly, quarterly or yearly progress note or IEP.
These screeners would be appropriate for second grade to 9th grade students and may also be suitable for older students with language disorders.
We sincerely hope that this unit exceeds your expectations and we welcome any and all comments and feedback here at TpT or sent via email. We can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
