CommaRulesWorksheets-ScienceFacts 5

Comma Rules and Practice Sheets (Free)

Last week I mentioned that we’ve been doing some grammar review again. We went over 11 comma rules. Then each day they’ve been doing  five or six sentences — adding in the comma where needed and identifying the comma rule that applies. My kids love science, so the comma worksheet has a lot to do with science this time. (There are sentences about the plague, polio, the Venus fly trap,...

Grammar Worksheets: Synonyms and Antonyms

I made a few matching worksheets for the kids to go over the concepts of synonyms (words that have a similar meaning) and antonyms (words that mean the opposite or nearly the opposite of each other).  Although the kids probably know most of these words, I’m going to have them work together to fill these out.

Independent Writing – How we Tackle Daily Writing

This year, we added in a new subject to our day — independent writing.  My eldest has always been a reluctant writer. I was taken by surprise because he learned to read extremely early… by 5 he was reading easy chapter books… by 7 he was reading long novels. But his writing lagged behind; he seemed paralyzed to try writing.  Mistakes made him freeze up, no matter how much I...

Grammar Practice: Possessive Nouns and Pronouns

A couple of days ago I went over possessive nouns and pronouns with the kids. This is a practice sheet I made for them. The second page has a couple of interesting tidbits about Australian wildlife that I thought the kids wouldn’t remember (the kids were all born in Australia). I shared a little bit about termite mounds, the cane toad and quolls… all critters you don’t hear that much...

Capitalization Review

Once again the kids did a quick review sheet to go over capitalization rules.  I wrote out a paragraph about the author of The Hobbit and the kids had to find all the letters that should have been capitalized. I also went over some of the rules of capitalization and had the kids give examples (of a city, state, the name of a lake, and so forth). Although I don’t show...
