How I Teach Grammar (The Grammar House Cup)

I was desperate for a better way to teach grammar. On my end, I was overwhelmed with how much I needed to teach: how to get it all done and how to do so logically. For my students, I was concerned about their engagement (not tuning out or getting bored) AND how to ensure that they "got it".

Solution: The…

Summarizing Non-Fiction Text....with a Comic Strip!

This past few weeks we have been working on summarizing non-fiction text. Looking at the various traits of non-fiction and figuring out how they all work together to get the point of the text across has been very tricky for the kids. So to help them figure out what the most important information in a non-fiction text is, I employed the help of a bit of creative expression and technology.
