Middle School Grammar Resources

Is there really such a thing as an engaging middle school grammar activity?  I have been working hard to find just that, and I think that I have found quite a few!

As a Reading Specialist, I have been searching high and low for engaging grammar activities for Middle School students.  I found several WONDERFUL interactive journals from Chalk Box Tales that our teachers are using this year.  They are the first layer for teaching grammar and the overall goal of well developed sentence writing. WIN!  Check them out!

Not that Lovin' Lit needs any more advertising, BUT... her grammar quick checks make the perfect entrance and exit tickets to review skills and go along nicely with these interactive notebooks!

Take your pick ~ They all follow the same format and are worth the price!

To add a little spice to grammar, I found the following activities that I think are AMAZING:

  • This {PREZI}is an excellent review for students. 
  • This {PREZI} is titled, Painless Grammar.  I like it!
  • This {PREZI} is nicely engaging and interactive.  Check it out!
  • Below is my FAVORITE 8 Parts of Speech clip:

I love Mr. Folkes parts of speech, but it only reviews Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives.

  • Grammaropolis has fun songs and nice free slides explaining the parts of speech.  The Noun clip is free.  The rest cost $.
  • Flocabulary is my ABSOLUTE favorite site!  This costs $ as well.  You can choose to sign up for a free trial to check this out.  You will LOVE it! 

To go with these resources, I made grammar reference posters.  They are a nice reference that will be sent to students via Google classroom and are  posted on teachers' classroom walls.  We are using these posters grades 4-8.  The continuity of use is so important for our students!

If you would like to try these out, the Nouns poster is FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers!

Happy Reading!
