Welcome to Part 3 of my Teaching Grammar Series!
Today, I'll show you some ways that I make learning grammar interactive. My students love to get up and move around. Sitting still is just not cool! The two games I'll talk about are Scoot and Write the Room.
Playing Scoot is always a favorite activity in my classroom. I blogged all about how and why I play this game here. Please click on over and read about why you should be playing it, too!
The bottom line is, this game is so much fun, the children have no idea that it's work! To check out some of my Scoot games, just click on the above image.
The other interactive game I want to mention, is Write the Room. We all know it as a kindergarten activity, right? Well, my first and second graders have been noticing word cards taped around my classroom and they asked me why they couldn't walk around the room, too. Well, I told them that I would try and come up with some Write the Room activities for them, too. And, the other day, I did just that!
Both of the games above contain 5 different games, for a total of 10 Write the Room Activities! They are going to be so excited! I'll hang the cards up around the room and, during their station time, they will walk around, finding the cards, and writing their answers on their recording sheet. The games cover common and proper nouns, strong verbs, adjectives, and sentence editing. The sentence editing games include all types of sentences, possessives, pronouns, subject verb agreement, and a myriad of other important Common Core language skills. I can't wait to introduce the first game to my students! I may get a standing ovation! LOL!

I'l be back tomorrow with some ideas on how you can easily assess your students when it comes to their knowledge of grammar. See you then! Oh, don't forget that I'm having a link-up on Thursday. I hope those with blogs will link up their grammar best practices!
