Uses logic and humor to teach grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary!
Description & Features:
The Language Mechanic is an effective, comprehensive program that uses fun examples and logical reasons to eliminate the confusion students often feel while learning the rules of language mechanics.
Each activity demonstrates and reinforces why following the logical rule is important. Lessons begin with a "grabber”—a humorous miscommunication that results when a rule is broken. Examples are followed by an explanation of the specific rule, the logic behind it, then guided and independent practice exercises.
Capitalization, Run-ons, Fragments, Pronouns, Modifiers, Verbs, Agreement, Unnecessary Words, Puntuation, Friendly Letter, Spelling, Vocabulary. Reproducible.
Includes presentation and reinforcement suggestions, answers, a glossary, and a compare/contrast organizer.
