This interactive edit unit contains 20 reproducible editing pages for work in whole group or language centers. There are 20 well-written sentences for students to analyze and note what works well in each sentence. By analyzing well-written sentences rather than correcting poorly written sentences, students are exposed to mentor sentences that model proper grammar and mechanics. There are enough interactive edits for an entire month of school!
Interactive Edit: Looking at Grammar and Mechanics the Right Way
Teach students to look at examples of excellent sentences and ask themselves, "what works well?" Instead of looking at poorly written sentences and fixing them. Let's show our students what great sentences look like! In this resource, there is a list of 20 well written sentences along with a printable response sheet for each sentence. That's one month worth of interactive edits!
This resource supports teaching language skills by looking at well written sentences, rather than poorly written sentences. Included are 20 printable student sheets, lessons, and teaching ideas. Why not put well-written sentences in front of students and ask them what they notice is working? The worst that will happen is that we are exposing them to sentences full of correct grammar, mechanics, spelling, subject/verb agreement, punctuation, and much more!
