Rigorous Holiday Fun for Reinforcing Editing and Root Words
This resource is a Valentine’s Day themed color by number to help students practice common middle school grammar and language concepts like comma usage and root words. This resource contains four color by number grammar/language practice activities. All of the pictures in this resource are Valentine’s Day themed.
In each activity, students first determine, from a list of choices, which one is correct. Then, they color the spaces on the color by number sheet that match the question with the color that corresponds to their chosen answer choice. Students will know they have completed the color by number correctly when it matches the answer key provided.
This Valentine’s Day themed color by number gives students practice with the following concepts:
Editing a passage for errors in grammar
Root words (phil-love, ard-passion, cardio-heart, anth-flower, cor-heart)
