Grammar Practice Sheets: Plurals, Endings, Past Tense Verbs

I made a couple of sheets so my older kids can review how to add endings (such as -ed, -ly, -s, -es and so forth). We reviewed when to double the final consonant and some of the irregular verbs.  I also included the answers (but they are not shown in the picture below). There’s nothing fancy about these sheets, but they’re free to download if your kids need some review:...

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,...

If you’re interested you can download your own copy of these free grammar worksheets:...

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...

As you’ll see, much of our day...

Language Arts

Sometimes this doesn’t make as interesting material for a blog post, but we do cover grammar and language arts in addition to All About Spelling (we love, love love this program and it deserves its own post sometime), writing (we often use the Teacher Filebox for this), and First Language Lessons.  For basic rules of grammar we use the Write Source Skillsbook as our core (more about that below). We...

Capitalization Rules and Practice Sheet (free)

The main focus of our language arts is always reading — both independently and aloud together. I really feel there’s no better way to increase your vocabulary, learn about the eloquence of language. We talk about what we read, we memorize poetry and all that.  But since we have some standardized testing coming up, we’re doing some more formal language arts review (thus all the worksheets).  A quick, straightforward sheet...
