I've just finished making my Montessori grammar chart, cards and booklets for use in my 6-9 class. And I have a surprise for everyone so keep reading.
This is the grammar chart with an explanation of the parts of speech.These are the grammar symbol 4 part cards. The control cards are stuck together in accordion style.
This is the grammar booklet that I printed and then discovered that our school owns a ring binder machine so I'm so happy I could bind this into a real booklet.
You can see the front of this in the above picture.
We don't own a set of solid grammar symbols, they aren't available in the UK except at sky high prices and buying them from abroad will cost too much postage. So I decided to make them from card, below is a picture of the noun pyramid I just made. I'll make all the other shapes except the verb and adverb symbols as I'm sure I can find balls the right colour.
Anyway the surprise is, that I am selling the files for the grammar chart, cards and booklets on eBay. You can go to the listing here . I decided that I have to do something to make some more money as our school is suffering financially and unfortunately has cut all staffs salaries including mine :(
If you have shown support to my blog by leaving me 5 or more comments before this post and are interested in getting these files, leave a comment on this post and I will be more than happy to send you these files for free. This is my cheeky way of getting those who lurk to start commenting :)
I'll post more about how to use these grammar materials.
