PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product helps students connect grammar instruction to their own writing and testing situations! Teach grammar authentically and effectively through the use of mentor sentences and a thoughtful approach to conventions instruction.

This product includes nine weeks of grammar instruction and all the tools you'll need to make it stick! These tools have made a difference in my students' writing! I know they'll make a difference in yours! By bridging the grammatical skills in context to revision and editing in a testing format, students will learn what's important about grammar instruction as well as how to apply it in a variety of contexts.
