Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Grammar Teacher′s Activity–a–Day: 180 Ready–to–Use Lessons to Teach Grammar and Usage, Grades 5–12

The Grammar Teacher′s Activity–a–Day is a must–have resource that features 180 practical, ready–to–use grammar, usage, and mechanics lessons and a wealth of instructive and fun–filled activities one for each day of the school year. The daily activities give students (grades 5–12) the confidence they need to become capable writers by acquiring, improving, and expanding their grammar skills.

Written by veteran educator and best–selling author Jack Umstatter, this handy book will help classroom teachers and homeschoolers familiarize their students with the type of grammar–related content found on standardized local, state, national, and college admissions tests. The book is filled with ready–to–use comprehensive and authoritative activities that can be used as sponge activities, extra homework, or regular daily lessons. In addition, all the reproducible lessons are designed to be non–intimidating for students, and the author has included helpful tips on how to best use each specific topic or lesson in the classroom.

The Grammar Teacher′s Activity–a–Day contains

  • 26 lessons and activities that cover the eight parts of speech
  • 114 lessons and activities that shed light on the parts of a sentence, prepositional phrases, verbal phrases, clauses, and sentences by construction and purpose; agreement; tense; regular and irregular verbs; voice; and the nominative, objective, and possessive cases
  • 30 lessons and activities that focus on essential elements of effective writing, including punctuation, capitalization, and spelling
  • 10 lessons and activities that encourage students to display their knowledge of the topics covered in the book

The book′s enjoyable lessons and activities will help your students improve their grammatical skills and become self–assured and willing writers.

"Jack Umstatter′s The Grammar Teacher′s Activity–a–Day is a powerful grammar resource for classroom teachers. Loaded with clear, concise definitions, examples, and practice activities, this is a valuable tool for all teachers, not just those who teach writing."
Tina S. Kiracofe, curriculum supervisor, Augusta County Schools, Virginia

I'm always looking for engaging grammar lessons so bought this to add to my collection! It didn't offer anything new or engaging for the children in my class.

Good practical advice on how to ensure the children gain a good understanding of basic grammar, especially with the introduction of the new Sats coming in in 2013.
