Alien Text Talk
is a fun new take on daily language exercises. Instead of just proofreading and correcting punctuation, grammar, and spelling the student will be translating the sentence from "text speak" into a sentence using the proper writing conventions.
This download contains Week 1 of the 36 week common core aligned program Text to English Full Year Daily Language Practice ~ Grammar, Spelling
which can be found here in my store.
Each week there are 9-10 text sentences that the student will need to translate and correct.
This is a great activity to reinforce grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization skills for sponge work, bellringers, bellwork, or homework in addition to class instruction. It helps students see the vast difference in text speak and be able to apply the proper writing conventions at appropriate times.
The student copy can be copied off for the individual student and/or made into a projection. Font is 16 point type for easy projection reading.
An answer key is included.
