Full lesson plans for EVERY common core language standard. All of the lessons are hands-on, real life related, and engaging your students. These lessons are meant to teach the terminology and how the language skill works in their real life.

These lessons are introduction lessons that you teach to learn the skill. They learn through inquiry first! There are also many practice sheets involved. Then, you can applying the skills to your writing and reading.

These lessons are based on third grade language standards (CCSS.ELA.RL-LANGUAGE 3.1-3.9), but can easily be used and adapted for second and fourth grade

Why will these lessons help your students grow?

Engagement- These lessons are fun and hands-on. They allow the students to experience the reading ideas in a real life context. They let children understand the terms and how they can relate it to reading. They will LOVE them!

Rigor- These lessons make students think out of the box. They have to engage in really understanding what they are doing.

Low Prep- These lessons have minimal prep involved and there are only a few lessons where you would need to get outside materials.

Memorable- To learn grammar rules and language rules students need to learn through inquiry instead of being directly taught. These lessons focus on students learning the rule through inquiry and then the teacher directly teaching them. It gives them something to make that rule “stick”.

Grammar was TOUGH for my students. I needed them to really understand why we do certain things and how it applied to their real life. Then, I knew we could start using it in our writing and reading. These lessons were made to engage the kiddos in grammar while making sure they understand the terms!

Much Love,


The Friendly Teacher
