Once I finished creating my self-grading digital math bell work, I knew that I wanted something similar for grammar. I teach grammar twice per week in a classroom that has 12 chromebooks (approximately 1 chromebook per 2 students). My school has been looking for ways to trim the paper and copying budget and printing out grammar worksheets for 30 kids twice per week was adding up. I needed a solution that met my needs but it didn’t exist. So I created one!
I wanted to figure out a way to make my digital grammar word work as independent as I could so that I could meet with my small groups. I decided to go a blended learning route. I added a youtube video to each form that outlines the grammar concept that students will work on. Following the video, students answer 12-15 questions related to the concept shown in the video. Some of the topics include nouns, verbs, adjectives, homophones, plural nouns, past tense verbs, etc.
The best part is that I don’t have to mark their grammar work. The form does all of the work for me and then I get all of the great data from the form including which questions students are struggling with the most. This allows me to target specific students or concepts in my small group instruction.
You can see an overview of one of the forms here:
If you visit this resource on TPT and download the preview, you will get access to two free forms to try out. Each form can be shared as an assignment in Google Classroom. If your students don’t have Google Classroom, don’t worry you can still use them! You just need to share the link with your students. I would recommend creating a shortened link with bit.ly OR creating a QR code for students to scan. You can find the resource by clicking here.
