Enjoyable, effective, easy to use, this grammar review can be timely and helpful..
Intermediate, middle and high school level students enjoy discovering how certain holiday traditions developed while practicing grammar and spelling skills at the same time.
Each 20-30 sentence story focuses on the most common errors in homophones, subject-verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, common spelling errors, irregular verbs, and irregular plurals.
The stories contain interesting historical and cultural information about some Christmas traditions. An effort has been made to have this grammar practice as secular as possible.
The stories are simple to use and to grade because each sentence contains only one grammatical error. Students enjoy trying to find it.
Each story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper, and the stories are perfect for homework, seatwork, and as review for state writing tests or final exams.
Every story includes an Answer Key, plus an explanation for each correction. A short writing prompt has been added, as well as a corrected version in paragraph form.
