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.

  • Charlotte really learned a lot from this class. This is her official first academic class with an online teacher and I’m proud of her progress. Lisa was very patient and encouraging and helped Charlotte transition to learning from someone other than Mom or people she know’s personally. Looking forward to Grammar Garage 2.

    • Your testimonial is greatly appreciated! I enjoy working with Charlotte and look forward to our continued learning adventures. 🙂 Thank you for signing her up for my class!
