Sentences – Grammar Circles for easy and effective grammar
Teach grammar in a creative and meaningful way. No more boring grammar.
Simplify your life and make grammar fun and effective.
One of the biggest challenges I had in my English classes was how to fit in grammar with everything else I had to teach. I would give students grammar pages, and then we would correct them together. It was tedious, and it took forever! What’s more is that students were not learning the way I wanted them to. They wouldn’t apply what they had learned from the grammar pages and activities.
I found a solution!
Grammar Circles. Grammar Circles are very similar to literature circles in the sense that students are teaching one another grammar. It is a fun and functional way to teach and learn grammar. Although this may be done individually, it can also be completed as a group where students, through a specific process outlined in the package, teach one another grammar. They also correct the work together, so the teacher has very little to do.
The package includes:
1) A Student Packet – which contains the Literature Circle directions, the notes, directions, and activities, and a “Mark Calculation” page to keep track of their marks. (16 pages)
Activities included focus on:
❒ the logistics of the sentence (the basic parts)
❒ the prepositional phrase
❒ the adjective phrase
❒ the adverb phrase
❒ the verbal phrase
❒ the appositive phrase
❒ the independent and subordinate clauses
❒ subjects and predicates
❒ run-on sentences
❒ types of sentences
2) A teacher Guide with easy to follow instructions on how to organize the Grammar Circles.
3) The Answer Key – devised to allow students to correct their work and learn from one another.
