KinderGrammar Curriculum is a 20 week or 100 academic day systematic curriculum. KinderGrammar Curriculum covers 20 skill focuses and includes 5 simple “print and teach” lessons per skill. The lessons are scripted for ease of teaching. Each day the students also have exit tickets to match the skill.
With the average school year being 30 weeks, this program offers flexibility that you can repeat the lessons more than once or rotate grammar with another pressing area of instruction within your classroom day. KinderGrammar Curriculum lessons are meant to be quick and to the point. The teacher simply introduces or reviews the concepts, build upon the concept from previous lessons, engages the students in a discussion about the skill, requires students to show mastery of the skill, and then allows the students an opportunity for independent practice.
How Can I use KinderGrammar in my Class?
You can add KinderGrammar into your morning routine, reading block, writing block, or any other time of the day that you have about 10 minutes of instruction time. KinderGrammar also offers suggestions for extension in each of the skill focuses. KinderGrammar pairs the KinderLiteracy weeks to each of the skills and also offers additional extensions for those with/without KinderLiteracy texts. If you do not have a long period of time for the lessons you can choose to eliminate the daily practice sheet or do it whole-group as well.
Tell me more about "fitting" KinderGrammar in...
KinderGrammar is designed to be a quick and efficient whole-group lesson. The lesson itself can range from 10 minutes and upward according to how much you would like to expand it. Each day the students also have an optional independent sheet. You can choose a time within your day that allows you the optimum opportunity for the lessons. Also, note that there are 20 weeks of instruction. It's possible that you rotate a week on of grammar and a week off. Grammar is a vital part of our instruction that in a lot of cases has fallen "off the grid." KinderGrammar allows you the opportunity to bring it back with the ease and efficiency of each lesson!
