In this 132-page eBook by Charlene Tess, you will find brand new group practice sheets, individual practice sheets, tests, and writing connection pages. The lesson notes, the student page lesson practice and overhead transparency pages are exactly the same as were in the original Simple Steps to Sentence Sense for High School edition, but the group practice sheets, individual practice, sheets, tests and writing connection pages are all new and different. Now you can use the same, simple, yet highly effective method with students at whatever grade level you teach. Of course, the answers are provided, just to make your job easier.
Note: If you already have the high school edition and all you need is the new exercises, tests, and writing connection pages, and not the notes, lesson pages, and overhead transparency pages, you may want to download the Simple Steps to Sentence Sense PACKET instead of this eBook. But if you want the whole package including the notes, lesson pages, overhead transparency pages, group practice sheets, individual practice, sheets, tests and writing connection pages, then this eBook is for you.
Remember the key to teaching grammar the Simple Steps way is to follow the steps in order. Do not move to the next step until you are absolutely sure your students have mastered the step on which they are working.
Also, remember to print the SAM sheets on the front and back of a single sheet of paper. Give each student a SAM sheet and allow him/her to use it on all exercises and tests.
After students have completed all the lessons in the book, they will be proficient in analyzing even the lengthiest compound-complex sentences. Students will be better writers because they will also have had practice in writing such sentences on their own.
If students tell you this stuff is easy or this stuff is fun, be sure to take it as a personal compliment. You have made is easy by skillfully teaching them to follow the 8 Simple Steps to Sentence Sense.
If this is your first introduction to Simple Steps to Sentence Sense, be sure to take a look at the edition designed for high school students and adults. The lesson notes, lesson practice sheets, and overhead projector sheets are exactly the same as in this middle school version of the book, but the group practice exercises, the individual practice exercises, the writing connection pages, and the tests are all different from those included in the middle school edition. In addition, the high school edition contains advanced steps to help students prepare for A.P. exams.
