Grammar Resources for the Bilingual Classroom

Hello friends! I am back today with great ideas and resources to help implement successful and engaging grammar lessons in your bilingual classroom. Make sure to read all the way to the end for a FREEBIE!

**Grammar Videos**
I usually try to introduce grammar lessons with videos to hook the students and engage them in the lesson. I'll replay the videos throughout the week to reinforce what they are learning and each day the concept becomes a little more familiar. Here are some great websites to look into when introducing grammar lessons:
**Interactive Notebook**
After the introductory lesson/video, I bring out interactive notebook pages to conceptualize and anchor the lessons.

**Grammar Centers**
Breaking up into grammar centers is one of my students favorite activities. I provide task cards, recording sheets, cut/paste activities and sorts to differentiate their learning and further evaluate how much practice they need with a lesson.
These centers are available in my store. Click here to see the BUNDLE. These are the skills covered:

ALL IN SPANISH!!! 

**Grammar FREEBIE**
As a quick pre-assessment or after a lesson use this FREEBIE as an evaluation. Students will cut and sort out nouns, verbs, and adjectives and glue where appropriate.

**Grammar GIVEAWAY**
As a thank you for being a loyal follower, I will be giving the FIRST THREE people who comment on this blog post a FREE Grammar Center of their choice. Just leave me a comment below with your email and the name of the center you'd like to receive. (*Update: first three people that commented have been emailed their center!) 
I hope this post has been helpful and provided you with many ideas to teach grammar in your classroom. What has worked for you? Feel free to leave me a comment below. Until next time friends!

  4. And I totally didn't answer your question!! Something that has helped my kiddos is reviewing the grammar lessons we have covered constantly. It's hard for them to remember a "rule" but a spiral review has helped. Personal anchor charts are also lifesavers!

    1. I totally agree! Anchor charts are life savers and if they keep them in their journal, they can refer to them throughout the year! Good luck in the upcoming year :)
