    This packet is an easy-to-read tool for teachers to learn better ways to teach grammar. It's all very useful, but I'd highly recommend starting with the section that teaches about the "Comma Cheat Sheet" (pgs.25-30). You can share with other teachers easily via a Smart Board lecture and encourage others to use these strategies. Enjoy! :)

    Select your choice of grammar activity to use with your class today! I recommend the "Verb-Adverb Charades" where students grades 3-8 "silently act out a variety of verbs and adverbs". Your class will love it. Enjoy!
