So much better than another set of boring language exercises, this set of grammar stories is fun, effective, motivating, and easy to use.

Students can read interesting stories about the history of sports while reviewing fundamental grammar skills.

Ten one-page sports stories address the most common errors in spelling, homophones, subject--verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, comparative adjectives, and irregular verbs and plurals.

Perfect for the beginning of an English, writing, or ESL class, an additional two Teacher Worksheets provide error analysis and interpret strengths and weaknesses (both Individual and Class) to help focus instruction and/or group students.

The set is easily used as seatwork, homework, in learning centers, or as preparation for state writing tests.

Simple to use and grade, if desired, each one-page story includes about 20 sentences containing only one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy trying to find it.

Every story includes an Answer Key, + an explanation for each correction. A Corrected Version in Paragraph Form and a Writing Prompt have also been added.

Contents comprise the most popular world-wide sports:

1. Soccer

2. Basketball

3. Cricket

4. Tennis

5. Hockey

6. Football

7. Martial Arts

8. Athletics (Track & Field)

9. Volleyball

10. Baseball

More specific information about the format is visible in the Preview.

For EXTRA fun in class:

Pair two students together, and give teams points for each correct answer. Total points over several days or weeks on a wall chart, and award small prizes or grade points when a certain level is reached. Students love the competition, and the pairs like helping each other find the errors.
