My daughter is now in Sixth Grade and she loves interactive notebooks. She asked me to make a more grammar specific notebook for her grade. She said she really enjoys learning grammar, so she wanted to do more for English. Why not, I answered! So, after several weeks of working on it, I’m happy to say that I’ve finally finished her Interactive Grammar Notebook for Sixth Grade.
Here are a few of the pictures of her work. Sadly, she wasn’t in the mood to take pictures, but I did snap some of some of her work. This picture if of a context clue activity. She said it was tricky for her, which I love because I don’t want things to be too easy for her, but just right.
This next picture is very interesting because I just kind of assumed children learned this skill by just talking to others, but it isn’t necessarily true. The skill is positive and negative connotations of words. She really didn’t understand that there is a subtle difference between words like skinny and slender. So, this activity really helped us to talk about word choice. I think she’ll really be picking her words more carefully. Not that she ever said anything wrong, but I think she realizes you can hurt peoples feelings by word choice now.
