Identifying Modifiers - Grammar Series by Jivey #8

Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
Use this interactive video lesson to review modifiers with your students! This video lesson reviews adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions. It does NOT go into as much detail as videos 5, 6, and 7 on each modifier, so please make sure you aren't introducing modifiers to your students by using this lesson.

Do you ever get stuck trying to explain grammar concepts in a kid-friendly way? Have you ever wished Jivey would just come teach grammar for you? ;-) If you said yes to either question, this interactive video series is just what you need! The videos in this series will help explain concepts to students, and help them understand how to carry the concept over into writing. The video is not meant to be used in isolation! The practice provided in the video and supplemental materials will not be all the students need... carry the skill over into writing time to help them understand it by using it!

*Be sure to look at the preview to see parts of the lesson. This will give you a feel for what the entire lesson will be like.*

All of the work has been done to review the modifiers: adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions with your students in a kid-friendly way. By playing this video lesson, you will be able to devote all of your attention to your students! Being able to focus solely on your students will allow you to formatively assess them during this interactive lesson.

This review lesson will review adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions before asking students to identify them in sentences.

The video is 28 minutes but the entire lesson should take you about 35 minutes, as you will press pause a few times during the lesson when you see the icon appear on the screen. While paused, the students will interact with the lesson by discussing with you and their peers what they notice about sentences containing modifiers. They will also be given time to take notes in their (included) interactive activity about modifiers.

Finally, they will show what they have learned from the lesson during an interactive portion at the end of the video. They will hold up (included) cards to identify words as adjectives, adverbs, or prepositions.

This interactive lesson is perfect to use during your writing time. The lesson should take about 35 minutes. At the end of the lesson, I wrap up with a "Your Turn" challenge, which would be appropriate to lead into some independent writing time where they practice what they have learned.

Do you use Mentor Sentences in your classroom? Use this introductory lesson during your writing time to help introduce adjectives the week before focusing on mentor sentences where you review modifiers!

The video is embedded for playback ON Teachers Pay Teachers.
