Grammar Skill of the Week includes 62 weeks of content that you can use for the entire year. You can cover topics in order, or you can pick and choose topics based on your students’ prior knowledge and areas of need. Each grammar skill includes the following:
Day 1: Learn
Day 2: Practice
Day 3: Practice
Day 4: Writing Prompt
Day 5: Show What You Know
This resource will help you target a specific grammar skill in the most timely and effective way possible. Each week is set up exactly the same to promote a strong and predictable routine that works best for students.
Day 1: Learn
Students rate their level of understanding before starting the skill:
4 = I can do this on my own, explain how to to do it, and teach others.
3 = I can do it without help and show I understand.
2 = I can do it with help or examples in front of me, but I may make mistakes.
1 = I’m starting to get it but still confused.
0 = Even with help, I don’t understand or can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
After students rate their understanding, they start the first day with lesson notes and examples that teach the grammar skill. These lesson notes are all written in student-friendly language to encourage students to work independently. After reading through the lesson and examples, students will complete practice questions to reinforce the skill they just learned. You can allow students to work on this section independently or do it together as a class.
Day 2 & 3: Practice
On the second and third day, students practice the skill with a variety of engaging questions, activities, games, riddles, and more. Based on students’ level of understanding, you can allow them to work independently or together as a class.
Day 4: Write
The ultimate goal of grammar instruction is to get students to naturally incorporate the skill in their speech and writing.On this day, students will do just that. They will respond to a writing prompt that requires them to transfer their knowledge of the skill they’ve learned and practiced.
Day 5: Show What You Know
Assess students on the grammar skill of the week. The assessment includes questions of varying difficulty so that you can get an accurate picture of student understanding. Finally, have students rate their level of understanding after completing the assessment.
