Not everyone loves grammar, and, to be honest, in elementary school grammar mistakes are to be expected. But what if you had a super painless way to introduce early elementary grammar? Would you jump at the chance?
This product is a series of questions and answers, in PDF format, along with some advice about grammar for early school ages. There are four lists, which can correspond to four years (such as first through fourth), and what these lists do is introduce grammar with its terms and simple uses.
In a very real way, it teaches by giving students correct answers. That way, when you need to correct them, you can say, for example, “What begins every sentence?” Your student will quickly be able to answer, “A capitol letter!” and fix his or her work.
These won’t introduce every single grammatical element, but you’ll be pleased by just how much, even in bite-sized pieces.
If you’ve already started your school year, or if you start later than first grade, no problem. Placement works as easily as asking questions until you reach one your student doesn’t know. Teach that question, review regularly, and you will be well on your way!
