Who says teaching grammar has to be boring? I know, I know learning grammar isn't always at the top of our interest list so imagine how our students might be feeling. However, I want to share with you a way that you can teach grammar while boosting engagement and achieving results. It is also very minimal prep for teachers which is always an added bonus. The Mystery Pictures Bundle has two versions! The digital version can be used with Google Slides or you can use the printable version. Each unit will come with 10 mystery pictures for your students to solve as well as an answer key. It is also important to note that all of the activities in the bundle align with the 2nd grade Common Core Language Standards.
How Can You Implement?
If you are wondering where you should begin when implementing this resource I would recommend starting with the Kids Pack. This mystery pack is perfect for reviewing 1st-grade grammar standards. It includes everything from common, proper, and possessive nouns to verbs to common adjectives. The other bundles included are the School Pack which is perfect for teaching conventions of standard grammar, the Water Fun Pack is great for teaching conventions and vocabulary, and the Animal Pack is perfect for teaching word relationships!
Also, another great feature of the Yearlong Bundle is the helpful tutorials! The mystery picture pack comes with 10 activities. However, you will most likely use only 1 or 2 at a time. The tutorial will show you step by step how to break up the activities easily. There is also a tutorial for creating a copy so you don't send your master copy to your students. I know how much a headache that can be when that happens!
I hope your students love Grammar Mystery Pictures as much as my students did when I was teaching. If you have any other grammar activities that your students love please comment below! I would love to hear other recommendations that you may have.
