Got Grammar?

Ready-to-Use Lessons and Activities That Make Grammar Fun!

Jack Umstatter

Created for teachers and students in grades 6-12, Got Grammar? is filled with ready-to-use reproducible lessons, diagnostic and final tests, and reinforcement and review activities. Watch the excitement build as your students learn grammar using crosswords, magic squares, matching columns, riddles, find-the-word games, and other fun activities.

Got Grammar? is the comprehensive classroom guide. Each of the over 60 lessons is ready-to-use and reproducible, and each begins with helpful teaching pages that define, explain, and illustrate grammar, usage, or mechanics concepts. These lessons and the many ready-to-use student activities include 15 diagnostic tests, 15 section-review activities, 18 final tests, and over 100 other creative reinforcement activities, including diagramming. As practical as it is fun-filled, the book is divided into six sections:

  • Parts of Speech
  • Parts of a Sentence

  • Sentences

  • Usage

  • Mechanics

  • Meeting the Tests Head-On

Each section is designed to help teach and reinforce grammar, usage, and mechanics in today's world of standardized tests. Using this book, students will benefit from the Writing Tips included at the end of each instructional lesson, and teachers will save time preparing lessons, activities, tests, and answer keys.

Whether these lessons and activities are used sequentially or as needed, your classroom will come alive as your students enjoy working through this classroom-tested, user-friendly way to learn grammar.
