Tired of using random sample sentences to teach grammar? Students complaining about more grammar worksheets? Taking too much time to teach grammar?
Try out this grammar exercise tool using sentences from whatever book your class is reading at the moment!
What you get:
1. Blank editable .docx version of the worksheet
2. Blank editable Google Doc version of the worksheet that you can import to your own Google Drive
3. Explanation of how to use the assignment
How to use (additional explanation provided in the document):
1. Pick a sentence from a book or article your class is reading. Include the author name and the title of the work. Fill in the top box with that sentence.
2. Set aside 10 minutes to do this activity 4 days a week. (I recommend doing this lesson in four consecutive days). If you don't have time to do this every week, do it every other week.
3. Students should be the ones producing responses and you will elaborate or clarify as needed. Scaffold the responses that less advanced students might not understand.
4. For Day 4, decide if you want to come up with a mad lib of the sentence OR allow the students to produce an original sentence.
5. Collect and grade!
