This slideshow helps to answer the why study grammar? question. It discusses "friendspeak," conversational and formal speech. It also addresses the difference between formal writing and texting!
Some great powerpoints that are much more interesting than grammar workbooks and worksheets! This bundle includes a powerpoint (21 slides) and guided notes handouts (3 pages + 1 practice assignments page). The powerpoint includes a few "pop quiz" slides that allow you to assess students' understanding of the material right on the spot in a fun way. They also include some "class brainstorm" slides to help the kids apply the material to their lives. My students love this approach to grammar and we end up having a lot of fun with it! The Grammar Practice assignments are a real blast for the kids! This is powerpoint 1 in the grammar series.
