Grammar Garage 2: Grab Those Fundamental Tools (ages 9-11)
January 21 @ 12:30 PM - 1:25 PM
An event every week that begins at 12:30 PM on Thursday, repeating until February 18 2021
The Grammar Garage Section 2: Grab Those Fundamental Tools
In this second section of our six-week course, learners will rev up their language skills using
high-engagement picture books as mentor texts. Handpicked, inclusive, and diverse books serve
as mirrors and windows, inviting students to notice, identify, revise, and imitate well-crafted
writing. One mentor sentence from each book will set the framework for modeling sentence
style, grammar, and mechanics. In our workshop approach, students will construct a knowledge
base for identifying the primary nuts and bolts of sentence structure: subjects and predicates.
Then your language technician, Mrs. Williams, will guide you through the initial gears of these
1. Parts of Speech: adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections
2. Types of sentences: simple, compound, complex
3. Figures of Speech: personification, metaphor, simile
So reach into your language arts toolbox and prepare to hammer out the rules of grammar with
Mrs. Williams in The Grammar Garage.
