Download this packet, and you will have a month's worth of weekly "gremlins" for your classes. Each lesson is geared to be a week-long study and begins by revealing a “gremlin” – a widespread and common error found in student writing. You know the ones, its vs. it's, too vs. to, etc.
Here's how we use this resource in our classrooms:
Each Monday, we introduce the “Gremlin of the Week” by passing out one of the mini-lessons included in this book. These lessons are student friendly and include tricks to help students learn! After we teach the lesson and make sure all students understand, it is time for them to respond. Students complete a foldable, flapbook, or cut-out (also included in this packet) as an interactive activity. A practice page is then given either as classwork or homework for a quick assessment of that week's gremlin. Then, on Friday, we give the quiz.
In this packet, you will have lesson pages, practice pages, interactive notebook activities, and tests for five weeks!
