Ten-Minute Grammar is a comprehensive grammar curriculum based on the Common Core Standards for seventh-grade, eighth-grade, or ninth-grade students. Using only the first ten minutes of each day, this unit helps students recognize difficult-to-identify nouns and verbs, including verb phrases, and to write sentences with complete verbs and properly-used nouns. Students practice and review for a week to a week and a half, and then take a final quiz. Two extra-practice worksheets provides differentiation and remediation for students struggling with the concepts. To give the students exposure to quality published writing, some of the practice example sentences are drawn from The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.
This 17-page unit includes everything you'll need for up to two weeks of grammar instruction:
* Seven days of bell-ringer activities
* Daily wordplay activities
* Two double-sided worksheets
* One unit quiz
* Plus an additional 16-page teacher's guide with answer keys and extra lesson instructions
The daily bellwork or bell ringers can be copied onto transparencies for an overhead projector or projected digitally onto a white board or a SmartBoard.
Unit files will come as a PDF file, but the folder also includes the original Word files in case you want to make small tweaks to a page or two (which I often like to do when I purchase lesson materials from someone else.) Download the FREE preview in PDF format for a sample of what you'll get in the unit.
