Grammar Gremlins Samples
Written by teachers for teachers, this practical and valuable resource will have your students editing like experts!
Each lesson is geared to be a week-long study and begins by revealing a “gremlin” – a widespread and common error found in student writing. There are twenty-five lessons in the book, all complete with an introductory mini lesson, at least one practice page, review handout, and a quiz.
Students naturally love a mischievous character, and our gremlin takes on that role! A purple gremlin keeps things interesting in every lesson by narrating facts about his gremlin world.
The introduction mini lesson can be taught on Mondays, practice can be provided throughout the week, and assessment can be given on Fridays with the provided quizzes. And the best thing about this book is that once a gremlin is identified, it is not forgotten. Old gremlins are reviewed as new ones are taught, and on quizzes, students must edit previous taught gremlins alongside the new ones. This type of repetition is crucial to making sure that your students eliminate these pesky errors from their writing for good! Grammar Gremlins provides a humorous and effective approach to fitting in such an important part of your language arts curriculum!
