Any professional athlete needs to know vocabulary in order to discuss strategy with his or her coach. Without a solid knowledge of strategy, that athlete could not be successful. The same holds true for writing: a writer needs to be able to talk strategy with his or her writing coach to improve.
Grammar is not just the finishing touches of a paper. Solid grammar can improve writing immensely. With that said, grammar instruction should be simple, straight to the point, and fun for students! Throughout this unit, students not only learn about the strategy of word choice, but they learn to play with words and have fun with them.
This unit contains a game, class activities, prompts for class notes and discussion, printable worksheets with answer keys, a review project, and a test. In a simple, easy to understand manner, it guides the teacher through grammar instruction.
Parts of Speech Unit 1 covers nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and interjections.
