This online unit helps sixth graders gain grammar skills. Students create compound and complex sentences, work with voice and tone, apply rules for verbs and pronouns, strengthen usage, and use punctuation correctly and effectively. Each of the 24 lessons starts with an instructional video followed by rules and examples. Two illustrated grammar activities and one writing activity help students practice what they learn.
You get Google doc activities, answers, standards correlations (grade 6), and more teaching support. Students who struggle can shift to Developing Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation (grade 5), while high-flyers can move up to Improving Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation (grade 7)—more online units in the Inside Grammar series.
Strengthening Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation works well for in-person and distance instruction. You can assign activities on paper or as part of a Google Classroom workflow. Each standards-based lesson is correlated to CCSS, LAFS, and TEKS.
