Class Description

Have you tried to teach your child grammar and it just isn’t sticking? Is it not carrying over into their writing? Fix It! Grammar: The Nose Tree, Semester 2 will continue to help your student see how grammar works in real-life application, and they will become confident self-editors in the process. Using Fix It! Grammar Book 1, The Nose Tree (3rd Edition) we will work together to learn, fix, discuss, and copy sentences from the story The Nose Tree. As a class, we will work together to complete Day 1 of each week. When a new concept is introduced, your student will learn cleaver ways to remember what has been taught in class. Working independently, students will complete Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 for each week. Questions from the previous week’s work will be answered during the next class time. Answers to the assigned homework will be posted on the classroom wall where students can self-correct their work. Parents are welcome and encouraged to assist their child with homework. (IEW’s philosophy is you can never help your child too much, so please help as much as you see fit in order to help your child succeed in class.)

Goals

  • Students will improve their knowledge of English grammar.
  • Students will more easily identify the parts of a speech, parts of a sentence including punctuation, and parts of a paragraph.
  • Students will gain confidence in their ability to read and edit a passage of text.
  • Students will have increased their vocabulary by using new words in context.
  • Students will work on improving their penmanship skills as they copy sentences to their composition notebooks.

Homework

Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 that appear in each week of the student workbook will be completed independently as homework, which should take approximately 15 minutes a day. Answers to assigned homework with be posted to the Google Classroom wall so students can self-correct their work and learn from any misses or errors.
