Write Rights: Daily Grammar
Day-To-Day Grammar Practice and Writing Activities
Write Rights is thirty weeks of daily grammar practice activities that target key grammar skills at each of the four developmental writing levels. Each weekly set includes quick, daily activities to practice grammar, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, or other skills essential to effective writing. Skills are repeated and expanded upon several times throughout the 30 weeks of activities to build students' language skills.
Why Use Write Rights
Daily language practice ensures students use proper mechanics, conventions, and vocabulary every day, so that they can apply previously taught writing lessons to their own compositions when revising and editing. Cyclical, daily review of writing skills means that students revisit learned skills as they encounter new ones.
How to Use Write Rights
Write Rights resources ensure that you can meet the range of student needs in your classroom. Write Rights include a booklet cover page, student daily activity sheets and answer keys at four developmental levels, and student rule sheets that summarize key grammar skills at various points throughout the thirty-week cycle.
Write Rights daily activities are designed for you to print and hand out to each student. Students organize the activities into a booklet that they add to each day. Activity sheets have punch-hole marks at the top so that pages can be kept together using brass fasteners or rings.
Each day, display the projectable versions of answer sheets for students to self-correct the daily activities. The projectable can also be used for whole-class review of the daily activity.
Write Rules sheets feature engaging comic characters for two levels: The Grammarians for beginning through developing writers; The Grammar Sleuths for fluent writers. The characters in the rules sheets help students understand all the rules they apply in daily activities. Rules sheets are designed to be collected as a set and can be added to students' booklets alongside the activities they accompany. The Grammar Sleuths also appear in special comics for certain weeks to further teach or review skills.
