Grammar Tall Tales are great for regular English and ESL students because they improve grammar, spelling, reading, and writing.
They can be used in learning centers, or as homework, seatwork, or preparation for state writing tests.
Simple to use and to grade, each story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper. Each sentence contains only one grammatical error, and students enjoy trying to find it, individually or in teams.
Every tale includes an Answer Key, plus an explanation for each correction. A short Writing Prompt is added for extra credit.
