What do you do if you need a versatile activity that can cover a wide range of grammar skills for several grade levels? How do you make this activity differentiated? Will students want to do it?
This resource answers all of your questions and needs. Simply print the seven pages of this file onto colored paper and cut each square into a small "puzzle". I normally place four puzzles each into Ziploc baggies for small group or partner work.
Using these puzzles, you can:
- have students determine sentence types
- have students determine verb moods
- have students find specific parts of speech
- review verbals
- check for subject/verb agreement
- check for pronoun/antecedent agreement
- review "understood you"
- work with prepositional phrases
- have students categorize types of nouns
- teach subject/predicate structures
The possibilities are endless! One product - multiple reuse value.
Students can also use these puzzles as short "quizzes", or they can challenge themselves and "race" against one another in small groups to assemble puzzles and answer given questions that you've prepared for them.
