Timely! Effective! Fun!
Students will LOVE grammar practice!
This newest Grammar Tall Tale develops the story of Hugh Glass, the subject of several books and the main character of the movie, "The Revenant."
The tale consists of 40 sentences; the Answer Key includes explanations for each correction.
The exercises focus on the most common grammatical errors of students at the intermediate, middle, and high school levels.
An effort was made for easy correction; there is only one error in each sentence. The entire story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper.
A short Writing Prompt, when assigned 10 points, adds up to a simple 100%.
This timely tale should take 10-20 minutes for students to complete while they enjoy reading about this latest movie and book.
It is ideal practice for state writing tests and for students studying English as a Second Language.
The major grammatical skills covered include:
2. Punctuation--commas in a series, compound sentences, introductory clauses
4. Irregular plurals
5. Irregular verbs
6. Use of the apostrophe
7. Comparative adjectives and adverbs
8. Comparative adjectives and adverbs
9. Run-on sentences/ sentence fragments
10. Changing y to i before adding ending
