CLICK HERE FOR FACEBOOK

Here are three things you can use to help teach your kids parts of speech: instruction, review, and test.


Instruction:  Here is a workbook that I created and have used through the years:

Group Essay:Travel Writers Project

I created this website for my graduate school class.  It gives instructions on how to do a jig saw group essay (in the form of a travel blog)  for an online class.  Even if you are not teaching an online class, I think (hope) you will find some use for it.
