This set includes five practice worksheets and five quizzes on mixed grammar skills that students must know for their 8th grade state assessment. This packet includes practice/review on the following skills: commas in series, quotation marks, commas in compound and complex sentences, using who and whom, possessive nouns, pronoun/antecedent agreement including indefinite pronouns, comparative and superlative, direct address, correct spelling/homonym, and proper nouns.
I created these as a way to review and assess my students’ knowledge on the grammar concepts they need to know for their 8th Grade Writing SOL. I give these to the students to complete once per week. I have them do the worksheet, and then we check the answers. I display the correct answers on the smart board, and then I go over any concepts the students need to review. The students are to write their corrected answers on the paper in another color than they used originally. I then collect them to make sure they have written all of the sentences correctly. I use the quizzes as a way to assess the students’ progress on learning the skills in each set.
These pages can also be used as warm-ups/bell ringers. The students can do one or two per day. This may be a preferred method if you do not want to spend a large chunk of time on the pages in a single class session.
I have been using these for over ten years, and I have found them to be very helpful as culminating reviews. Also, I print these as scale to fit paper. Please email me if you have any questions. : )
