Recognizing that many teachers, particularly new teachers, may have gone through a school system that did not teach formal grammar, this resource attempts to simplify the grammatical process as much as possible. are covered with 34 overhead or whiteboard templates and 46 reproducible student exercises. With activities that include a review of earlier grammar exercises, as well as 8 review tests.
This book reviews the grammar taught in the earlier grades and integrates the new work into this review.
These resources should be used in conjunction with the current Language texts so that the grammar study may be integrated with the writing.
