These brisk and humorous one-sentence examples of writing mistakes provide teachers with what are often called "daily oral language" exercises that help students master the basics of capitalization, mechanics, punctuation, and usage. Such quick mini-lessons can become boring when the sentence comes from another classroom subject such as science, but this book's punchy declarations get kids' attention and keep the focus on writing. Each exercise includes an at-a-glance summary of skills addressed, as well as quick ideas and tips to help students understand basic grammar concepts.
