Each tale fits on one, two-sided piece of paper. Simple to use and grade, if desired, each sentence contains only one grammatical error. Students enjoy trying to find it, individually or in teams.

Every story includes an ANSWER KEY PLUS an explanation for each correction. A short Writing Prompt is added for extra credit. The set also contains corrected versions in paragraph form for each story.
