A Grammar Journey Beyond Worksheets is not your traditional grammar book. Rather than focusing on identifying and labeling the parts of speech, this book begins with engaging oral language activities that focus on the function of words in sentences using student-friendly terminology. Then students learn how to apply this knowledge in analyzing complex text and progress to making grammatical choices that impact their writing. The book targets kindergarten through eighth grade students and has a strong emphasis on scaffolding grammar instruction for English learners.
The links below provide additional tools to accompany the book. The Road Maps track activities in the book that address each of the Common Core Standards by grade band. The Resources and English Learners links contain tools for the learning activities in the book, and the Survival Guide provides documents that teachers can use as classroom posters or packets for students reference.
