ELA is my passion! I love getting kids excited about grammar with games and fun activities! Middle schoolers still learn through play and activities, but these types of lessons are often left out of the middle school curriculum. I create lessons that excite students to work cooperatively and creatively! I have found many ways to use task cards, like my "Verbals" set. Students love playing the fast-paced "score four" (like spoons), or I post the cards around the room and let kids get up and move while responding to each card. My "Color By Code" activities require students to analyze sentences, but gives them a chance to color, which is more fun than filling in a blank! My TpT resources take tough topics and make them manageable for teachers to teach and for students to learn.
