How do you teach grammar?
Most teachers in my Facebook groups are complaining that grammar takes way too long to teach and their students aren’t remembering the skills that are being taught. We have fourth graders who are still struggling with identifying nouns. That’s tough when they have so many more complex language standards to master!
It is true that grammar is a challenge to teach, but it is also true that you can make it easier!
In this episode, I am sharing three of my most important tips for teaching grammar in just 10 minutes per day.
- Grammar does not replace writing.
- Grammar needs to be taught in small pieces.
- Grammar is easier with a routine.
Next, I’m sharing the routine that I used and several tips that made each day work.
Monday: Mini Lesson with a PowerPoint
Tuesday: Interactive Notebook
Thursday: Task Card Scoot
Finally, I have created grammar units that include PowerPoints, interactive notebooks, task cards and assessments.
