Fun, motivating, effective, and easy to use, these Tall Tale Grammar Stories are great review for intermediate and middle school level students. They can be helpful for teachers in recognizing students' strengths and weaknesses for focused instruction.

The tales concentrate on the most common errors in homophones, subject--verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, and irregular verbs and plurals.

SET D includes:

1. Annie Christmas--Keelboat Captain

2. Buffalo Bill--Wild West Scout

3. Maui--Sun Fighter

4. Sally Fink--Keelboat Hero

5. Sedna--Mother of the Sea

The set can be used as homework, seatwork, and preparation for state writing tests or final exams.

Each tale itself fits on one, two-sided sheet of paper. Simple to use and grade, each sentence contains only one grammatical error. Students enjoy trying to find it.

Every tale includes an Answer Key, plus an explanation for each correction, as well as a writing prompt, and a corrected version in paragraph form.
