Historically speaking, teaching grammar has been a horribly boring and worksheet driven task. Interactive notebooks, cooperative learning strategies and Plickers have changed the game in my classroom this year. I have fallen in love with teaching grammar this year.
We usually start learning a new skill by putting a foldable into our notebook. We learn about and practice the skill on whiteboards using a Power Point that I make. My kids are loving the Power Points. I use their names in the sentences and try and match them up with Melonheadz Kidlette! The anticipation as they wait for the next slide is so fun!
Seriously…..this Melonheadz cutie looks JUST like my Cianna!
Another practice activity that is an absolute favorite is Write the Room. My kiddos love anything that involves getting up out of our desks so this was an instant hit. I make some task cards and a cute little recording sheet. Tape the task cards around the room and they are off to practice!
Hands down, my students favorite way to practice right now is Plickers. If you haven’t checked out Plickers yet, click HERE to go to their website! They are free and so easy to use. I have the app on my phone and I pull up the questions on my laptop and project them on my screen. I use the camera on my phone to scan and I can change the questions on the screen from my phone from anywhere in my room!
