Fall In Love With Teaching….Grammar


Historically speaking, teaching grammar has been a horribly boring and worksheet driven task.  Interactive notebooks, cooperative learning strategies and Plickers have changed the game in my classroom this year.  I have fallen in love with teaching grammar this year.

We usually start learning a new skill by putting a foldable into our notebook.
We learn about and practice the skill on whiteboards using a Power Point that I make.  My kids are loving the Power Points.  I use their names in the sentences and try and match them up with Melonheadz Kidlette!  The anticipation as they wait for the next slide is so fun!


Seriously…..this Melonheadz cutie looks JUST like my Cianna!

Another practice activity that is an absolute favorite is Write the Room.  My kiddos love anything that involves getting up out of our desks so this was an instant hit.  I make some task cards and a cute little recording sheet.  Tape the task cards around the room and they are off to practice!


Hands down, my students favorite way to practice right now is Plickers.  If you haven’t checked out Plickers yet, click HERE to go to their website!  They are free and so easy to use.  I have the app on my phone and I pull up the questions on my laptop and project them on my screen.  I use the camera on my phone to scan and I can change the questions on the screen from my phone from anywhere in my room!

  1. I love your stuff and was so glad to see you in the Blog Hop! I have never thought about writing the room for English! Don't know what I was thinking, but I LOVE that idea! Stealing it for this week!

  2. I went to a workshop, and they mentioned Plickers. I want to buy them since the cards seem to be ink heavy, but they are out of stock. I've never thought to use "Write the Room" with older children. I may have to try it.

  3. I'm obsessed with task cards! I love all of the different ways you can use them! Write the room is a fave.

  4. Grammar can be kind of boring, but your ideas and products look so fun for kids! Definitely visiting your store!

  5. Plickers!!! Oh my goodness-- this just rocked my world! I am going to jump on this bandwagon. Thanks for so many great ideas!
