I have had grammar on my mind a lot the past few weeks as I struggle to get my kiddos geared up for our state testing that starts next month (GULP! Did I just type that for real????)
As the writing teacher for over 60 students, I have had a lot of time to think about grammar resources. I have found that my students LOVE YouTube videos, and I love using them! One of my newest favorites are songs by the Bazillions!
I have printed the lyrics and my kiddos and have gone to town singing away! It is such a fun video AND I will catch them humming or singing the song in the lunch room or on the playground. TOTAL SCORE!
They also have others that they have just released:
They are super catchy and I love how they illustrate each one! Check them out today!
But if you really want good resources than you are going to love this amazing deal over at Educents! I have teamed up with 4 other amazing sellers to load your classroom with 10 resources to help kids work on grammar! (Click on ANY picture to check out the deal!)
I have selected two popular and student-loved resources for this great bundle!
First, is one of my 60+ Order UP! sets!
Order Up! sets have been come very popular in my classroom! My students LOVE to complete them and I copy them 1/2 sheet size so that the students can glue them into their writing journals! They are easy to use for assessments and I find myself using these frequently to test student's knowledge! AND, because these are like "I have, Who Has" for one person students can work at their own pace. All this and these are self checking to boot- BONUS!
(Remember-Click on ANY picture to check out the deal!)
My second resource is my hugely popular Mystery Pictures!
You will get my April Parts of Speech Mystery Picture Set! Mystery pictures have been around for ages, but mystery pictures that use parts of speech are here and I LOVE these. The format is such that the kiddos are told that a given part of speech is a give color and then the students must search the grid finding words that fit the rule. I love that some words (not many as I tried to create these using words that don't have 'double' meanings) create a great conversation about some words playing multiple roles!
With testing coming up- fun review and creative assessments are a must- and I think these activities will be something you will use year after year! Go ahead- check'em out!!
For a limited time you get a great bundle (my two resources above plus EIGHT, yup, 8 more- see below) for only $10.99 from Educents which is about 70% off! That makes each resource $1.10!!! WOW!
(And if you have never purchased from Educents before NEVER FEAR! Signing up is easy AND they always have a great deal for your first purchase. Click HERE if you are a first time purchaser to get signed up and ready to go! WAHOO!)
Have fun teaching grammar everyone!
