**2 FREE SAMPLE PAGES ARE INCLUDED IN THE PREVIEW FILE!**
This product contains 36 Common Core standards-based editing and grammar activities with matching answer keys.
Each task is based around an entire text instead of just a single sentence.
The texts and tasks will increase in length and complexity as the year progresses.
The texts cover a variety of genres, but mainly focus on short narratives and informational texts. They are designed to sound as if they were written by a 2nd grade student to encourage the sense of peer and self-editing.
-I intentionally left out specific directions on how to edit the texts. This should allow you to set your own requirements (pencil, colored pencils, highlighters, traditional editing marks, etc.)
-No spelling errors are included. This product focuses on grammar and conventions only, and I did not want to affect the text’s readability.
Weeks 1 – 9 are a review of 1st grade standards/concepts. A detailed plan is included in the product and the free preview file.
Weeks 10 – 18 add in: use of past tense irregular verbs, capitalization of product names, holiday, and geographic names, forming contractions, and forming possessives
Weeks 19 – 27 add in: use of commas in greetings and closings of letters and use of adjectives
Weeks 28 – 36 add in: use of collective nouns, form and use of irregular plural nouns, use of reflexive pronouns, use of adverbs, and produce, expand, or rearrange sentences
Again, be sure to check out the free samples in the preview file.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for your time and interest!
