Printable and Digital Options
This resource includes both digital and printable versions of each activity. So, no matter where your students are learning from, they’re covered!
How To Use Daily Grammar Practice
Grammar Day by Day is designed to be simple for your students to use – in a way that conserves your resources. First, download the freebie and decide which version you will be using.
If your printer allows, print the freebie page double-sided. To make things easier, a week’s worth of activities are printed on two pages.
The Grammar Day by Day freebie focuses on common versus proper nouns. On Day 1, students read and complete a color by code to categorize nouns.
On Day 2, students read nouns and sort them into the correct categories. This is great practice for your students who forget to capitalize proper nouns in their writing.
On Day 3, we up the complexity a little bit. Students read sentences and find the nouns in each sentence then color them according to their type.
Day 4 asks your students to read nouns and decide if they are proper or common nouns.
Finally, on Day 5, students connect what they’ve been practicing to the world around them. They will use their own book and find examples of each type of noun and write them in.
The digital version has the same activities as the printable but is optimized to make the activities interactive for your distance learners. Just like the printable version, there is a week’s worth of activities on two slides. On Monday, assign the whole week to your students and they can work on one activity a day. Ask your students to submit the entire assignment on Friday. If they accidentally submit it early you can send it back to them in Google Classroom. Let’s take a closer look at the digital versions of each activity.
On Day 1, students will move the red and blue colored discs on the slide. The discs are translucent so the word they cover will show through.
For Day 2, your students will type their answers into the text boxes. The textboxes will autocorrect some capitalization errors but not all of them so remind your students to double-check their work.
On Day 3, students read sentences and move translucent colored boxes to label the nouns they see. Keep in mind, some students get frustrated when the boxes aren’t the perfect size to cover a word. For these students, you can teach them to change the size of the boxes or instruct them to simply center the boxes on their chosen word.
Day 4 and Day 5 are both text box activities. Remind your students that these text boxes autocorrect some spelling errors and some capitalization errors but they also incorrectly capitalize some words. Students will need to go back and check their work thoroughly.
