Great introductory grammar lesson! These lessons are great to start off the school year. They set students up for success from the beginning, introduces a great new game that makes grammar fun (that they will want to play over and over again), and includes an assessment that lets you learn about the students you teach. Why wouldn't you want to use this?
Package includes: one set of daily lesson plans and materials, two PowerPoint slide shows
Lesson plans include: daily instructional sequences, detailed instructions for Grammar Ball, note worksheets for students, formative assessment worksheets, final summative assessment instructions
GRAMMAR BALL is the best game ever! Learn it with this unit and adapt it to play all year round. My students are always requesting it!
