Besides introduction, modeling, and guided practice, I wanted a way that my students could show off their knowledge in a FUN way. Fun and grammar in the same sentence....am I crazy? Well check out:
You want a fun quick assessment - this is it! I love that it literally works for a variety of grades!
Here's the premise: "You lost your pet and need to created a Wanted Ad to post to get him back. Use the 4 types of sentences in your ad and create an eye-catching picture to accompany your ad."
I let my students even use imaginary animals (after all...I was grading just their grammar)...so we had wanted ads for Unicorns, Robo-dogs, and some regular pets as well. They had such a good time flexing their creative muscles while working on grammar. I gave points for the 4 types of sentences and punctuation plus it made a great and engaging hallway display!
