Try a GRAMMAR TALL TALE to practice grammar and spelling skills with intermediate and middle school level students.
These tales focus 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
GRAMMAR TALL TALES are great for regular English, ESL, and some Special Ed students because they improve grammar, spelling, reading, and writing.
They can be used as homework, seatwork, and/or preparation for state writing tests.
The tales are simple to use and grade because each sentence contains only one grammatical error. Students enjoy trying to find it.
Every tale includes an ANSWER KEY PLUS with an explanation for each correction. An extra credit idea or WRITING PROMPT is also included.
Our free PREVIEW gives more specific information about the format.
