The Common Core's language standards can seem overwhelming-students need to learn specific, complex grammar rules at each grade level. The Common Core Grammar Toolkit to the rescue! This comprehensive guide makes grammar instruction fun and meaningful.

You will learn how to...

Teach the Common Core's language standards for grades 3-5 by presenting each grammar rule as a useful writing tool.Use mentor texts-excerpts from great literature-to help students understand grammar in action.Promote metacognition along the way, so that students become responsible for their own learning.

Throughout the book, you'll find step-by-step recommendations for teaching each of the grammar tools, plus classroom snapshots that show you the tools in action, and handy templates that you can use in the classroom.

Bonus! The book includes a free annotated bibliography, which is offered as a Supplemental Download on our website. The bibliography lists high-quality young adult literature and gives examples of key grammatical concepts found in each work. It also provides the Common Core Language Standard associated with those concepts!

"There is a huge need for this book. Grammar is a commonly overlooked and misunderstood area of teaching. Teachers rely on workbooks in the absence of more relevant strategies. This book is practical, applicable, and timely with its integration of the Common Core."
-Mimi Brown, Literacy Coach, Issaquah School District, WA

"Literacy coaches could use this book to help teachers more effectively weave strong reading and writing practices together. The annotated bibliography is a great tool for coaches to share with teachers so they can see quality titles of literature immediately to whet their appetite!"
-Elizabeth Hopper, Director of Targeted Professional Development, The Center for Literacy Education and Research at Purdue University
