My Father’s Dragon: GRAMMAR PACKET (Sentence-level grammar and parts of speech for Common Core Conventions of Standard English)
This product is unique in that it uses content from My Father’s Dragon in teaching word-level and sentence-level grammar that is expected by Common Core standards for grades 2 and 3. Many products are available for reading comprehension, but fewer offerings specifically address the language standards.
For teachers who are intimidated by or uncomfortable teaching “grammar,” the product also includes an explanation for teachers that is more in-depth than what is in the student workbook. This is a good resource to use if you are nervous about how to teach grammar in 2nd/3rd grade!
All of the examples and exercises use content from the text. This makes learning grammar more interesting and more meaningful to the students as it relates to the reading they are doing daily.
