Product Description
Grammar practice does not have to be boring!

Fun! Motivating! Clear! Effective! Easy to Use!

Try a Tall Tale Grammar Story to practice grammar and spelling skills with intermediate & middle school students.

These tales focus on the most common errors in homophones, subject--verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, and irregular verbs and plurals.

They can easily be used in learning centers or as homework, seatwork, and/or preparation for state writing tests. Great fundamental grammar review!

Simple to use and to grade, if desired, the tales have sentences with only one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy trying to find the errors, individually or in teams.

Every story includes an Answer Key, plus an explanation for each correction. A short Writing Prompt is added for extra credit. This grammar story also includes a Corrected Version paragraph form.
