Tall Tales Grammar Story: Johnny Appleseed

Effective, enjoyable, and easy to use, this Tall Tale story improves grammar with a bit of Americana, rather than with boring, unrelated sentences. The tale focuses on the most common errors in homophones, subject-verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, irregular verbs, and irregular plurals.

Tall Tales Grammar Review Stories are great for regular English and ESL students because they improve grammar, spelling, reading, and writing. They can be used in learning centers, as homework, seatwork, and/or preparation for state writing tests.

Simple to use and to grade, if desired, each story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper. It contains sentences with only one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy trying to find them, 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, and a Corrected Version in paragraph form is also included.
