Calling all recruits to Grammar Bootcamp for Elementary School!
Whether your student is struggling with parts of speech, or ready to get a head start on classes for the fall, this short class is the answer to help jog foggy memories or introduce the 8 parts of speech.
We’ll combine a little fitness with our grammar introduction! Race your fellow recruits with timed exercises to see who can name the most nouns; move around your spaces and maybe do a few pushups and squats with action verbs; play a game of adverb virtual charades and get well on your way to the goal – mastery of the parts of speech and how they are used in writing.
