Cover LOTS of Common Core State Standards with these
grammar cards. Put them in a pocket chart or on your whiteboard and
read the sentences together as a whole group.
For added fun make a
spider pointer with the spider pattern, glue it to a Popsicle stick and
use it to point to the words as you read them. (A web wand!)
Using a red dry erase marker, have a child come up and circle any letters that should be capitalized. Another student can add the end punctuation. Review parts of speech by having children circle nouns, underline verbs and put a square around adjectives.
You can also practice vowel identification.
Have a student come up and circle the vowels with a green marker. I
have set up the content of the cards so they also provide a nice
discussion and review of The Very Busy Spider Story too.
