Writing and Grammar Units

Writing covers a variety of genres.  Over the course of the year we will write from the following genres:
  • Literary essays
  • Persuasive essays
  • Narratives
  • Short responses to literature
  • Journal responses
Grammar:  
We use Grammar Punk for continued practice and review of grammar rules.  This starts off with rolling the dice to determine the vowel and consonant.  Then students create a list of words from these letters.  Finally, students create sentences based on the grammar rule using their dice words.
