The GUM ---"Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics" curriculum---will build your students' mastery of the conventions of standard English.
Short, two-page lessons with five easy steps (Read & Analyze, Practice, Apply, and Reinforce) provide self-guided instruction and practice in less than 15 minutes per day. Sixty lessons plus additional exercises, spelling activities, and proofreading exercises are included to provide full coverage of English and plenty of practice opportunities. This is a spiral curriculum that promotes skill retention and development as students revisit the same grammar, usage, and mechanics topics in greater complexity as they advance through the grades.
Unit post-tests give students practice with test formats they'll encounter on a variety of assessments, such as nonfiction reading passages with text-dependent questions and selected response questions. Diagnostic unit pretests and unit reviews provide teachers with additional assessment options.
The units in this grade 6 workbook cover: sentence structure, parts of speech, usage, grammar, and mechanics. Students will learn about complete subjects and complete predicates, appositives, reflexive and intensive pronouns, adjectives and adverbs, Doesn't and Don't, avoiding extra pronouns, subject-verb agreement, avoiding inappropriate tense shifts, letters and emails, using parentheses and dashes, and more.
263 newsprint-like pages, indexed, softcover. Non-reproducible; consumable workbook. Grade 6.
