Easter Grammar Packet GIVEAWAY!

Hi, everyone! It's Blair from One Lesson at a Time. I've always been a lover of words. Reading them, writing them, putting them together, taking them apart....I just love words. So, teaching grammar has never been a chore for me - in fact, I love finding ways to make grammar fun for students! I've even been known to sneak a little grammar work into a math lesson. {Insert evil teacher laugh here.} You can click on the picture below to see more about how I incorporated parts of speech and sentence construction into a multiplication lesson:


Over the course of this school year, I've been working on a series of grammar packets that I am kind of in love with. :) They are aligned with Common Core standards for 3rd and 4th grade and go along with holidays/seasonal events throughout the year. I just finished my Easter grammar packet and I am going to give one away to an All Things Upper Elementary reader!

  1. Oh my goodness! It's hard to make grammar fun, but I have almost all English language learners so I get them talking out the sentences a lot. And acting them out. Great for ELLs!

  3. I wear the glasses with the nose and mustache, and a lab coat to be Dr. Grammar! Dr. Grammar always introduces the new topic/lesson. The kids love it. Fourth graders are not too old for this! :)

  4. I make grammar fun by using different toys (silly putty, slinks, monkeys in a barrel, etc.) We also watch a lot of brainpop.com videos. My kids love them!

  7. I have used toys like Mrs. Lammert, with lessons from Toying with Writing. Currently we are creating a flip book on parts of speech. I just bought the mentor sentences pack from Ideas by Jivey...excited to use that! :)

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this! I'm adding it to my wishlist, just in case!

  11. I love this pack!! I am keeping my fingers...and toes...crossed for this one. =]

    I teach in a self-contained classroom, and many of my students are struggling readers, which is a challenge to find interesting ELA materials that are appropriate for their reading level...but also their grade levels (5th & 6th). So, to make grammar fun, we listen to current popular music and analyze the lyrics for our grammar lessons. The kiddos don't even know they are learning...they think they are just singing and bopping along! =] Everyone loves a good jam sesh. ;)

  12. My kids love using games like splat, scoot and scavenger hunts to reinforce lessons. We make model posters of what great grammar looks like. Each of my kids gets to be an expert on a grammar rule, and they take their jobs seriously. We have capital letter experts, punctuation experts and all kinds of other experts. These experts are known in the class, so many times students will go to these "experts" for help and then they end up becoming experts as well.
