Seeking Grammar Help

March 30, 2008 at 11:26 pm 1 comment

Speaking of fifth period… as I mentioned earlier, they did relatively poorly on their grammar test, and I’d like to re-teach some of the concepts in preparation for the impending NCLB tests.

Do you have any activities that I might try? I’d like to try something different than just worksheets, but I’m running low on good ideas that don’t take up an entire class period.

I’m specifically looking to review direct/indirect objects, pronouns, predicate nouns, and transitive/intransitive verbs.

    Anything with competition.

    If they know sentence diagramming, what might work is a little competition: Hand out blank diagrams and ask them to fill theirs out as many ways as possible. The student or group with the most would get some prize.
