Here's what teachers are saying about the Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary program...
"The most comprehensive and easy to teach grammar, usage, mechanics, spelling, and vocabulary program. It's got everything! I’m teaching each grade-level Standard in the Language Strand and students are filling in the gaps from previous grade level Standards. This program is written by teachers for teachers and their students. You can tell. The no prep and minimal correction design frees me up to teach! I highly recommend the Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary program.
Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics (CCSS L.1,2,3)
Each of the grades 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary programs provides 56 interactive language conventions lessons, designed for twice-per-week direct instruction in the grade-level grammar, usage, and mechanics Standards. The scripted lessons (perfect for the grammatically-challenged teacher) are formatted for classroom projection. Standards review, definitions and examples, practice and error analysis, simple sentence diagrams, mentor texts with writing applications, and formative assessments are woven into every 25-minute lesson.
Students annotate the full text of the lesson on accompanying student worksheets. The worksheets include a practice section, a simple sentence diagram, a mentor text which applies the grammatical lesson focus, and a brief writing application. Students complete two sentence dictation formative assessments and then self-correct from the projected display.
Spelling (CCSS L.2)
Each grade-level program provides a comprehensive spelling curriculum with weekly spelling lists and spelling sorts based upon developmental spelling patterns. The instructional sequence is designed to review previously introduced spelling patterns and add new grade-level spelling patterns. Students create personal spelling lists to supplement these spelling patterns from spelling errors in their own writing and spelling resources found in the appendices. Syllable worksheets assist students in learning the skills of structural analysis. Students complete spelling pattern sorts for each weekly lesson in their student workbooks and self-correct from the projected display.
Knowledge of Language (CCSS L.3)
Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary has 56 language application openers to help students apply the L.1,2 Standards in the reading, writing, speaking, and listening contexts. These five-minute interactive lessons help students practice grammatical constructions, vary sentence patterns, and maintain a consistent voice and tone with precise and concise word choices. Students take margin notes on the lesson text and complete language application revisions on 56 language application worksheets in their accompanying student workbooks and then self-correct from the projected display.
Vocabulary Acquisition and Use (CCSS L.4, 5, 6)
The student workbook includes two independent vocabulary worksheets per week to help students learn all of the grade-level vocabulary Standards: context clues, multiple meaning words, Greek and Latin word parts, figures of speech, word relationships, connotations, academic language, and denotations/dictionary skills. Vocabulary study cards are provided for each lesson.
Biweekly grammar, usage, mechanics, and vocabulary unit tests require students to define, identify, and apply their knowledge of these Language Standards in the writing context.
Individualized Assessment-based Instruction
Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary also includes all of the resources for teachers to meet the diverse instructional needs of individual students. Perfect for English-language learners, special education, and remedial students! The program has diagnostic grammar and usage, mechanics, and spelling assessments to determine the specific remedial needs of your students. The assessments are administered whole-class and mastery recording matrices allow the teacher to organize instructional materials and to monitor the progress of individual students at a glance.
Teachers individualize instruction according to the results of each diagnostic assessment with grammar, usage, and mechanics worksheets and spelling pattern worksheets. Students who fail to master the formative assessments in the language conventions lessons are assigned corresponding language worksheets. Each targeted worksheet includes definitions, examples, writing hints, a practice section and a short formative assessment. Students progress at their own rates to master previous grade-level Standards.
More Instructional Resources (CCSS L.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
The appendices in Grammar, Mechanics, Spelling, and Vocabulary contain a wealth of practical resources for both students and teachers. Language convention appendices include grammar, usage, and mechanics resources, proofreading strategies and practice, supplemental spelling word lists, spelling review games, and syllable worksheets. The vocabulary appendix provides review games, context clues practice, and vocabulary teaching resources.
The Teacher’s Guide and Training Videos
The user-friendly grades 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 teacher’s guides include classroom management plans for both grade-level and remedial instruction to maximize learning and minimize class time. The program has been designed to require absolutely no prep and minimal teacher correction. Students self-correct with each lesson component to learn from their own mistakes. Seven short training videos assist teachers to make full implementation of the program simple and successful.
Accompanying Student Workbooks
Grade level student workbooks accompany each teacher's guide and are necessary instructional components (one workbook per student). The 196-page student workbook includes the full instructional text of each language conventions, spelling, language application, and vocabulary lesson with interactive practice and formative assessments.
