Oh, thanks, @dentlerp ! It’s only my third year teaching (I’m a career-switcher), so I’m constantly making mistakes and changing things. I suppose that makes me aware of my students’ need to make mistakes and try again.
I’ll ask my colleagues about books. First, however, I’m going to watch your training session from last week. “Listening to an excellent teacher give creative advice” is my reward to myself for commenting on the kids’ most recent writing. (Did I mention they struggle with verbs?!)
PS. If you have any verb materials you would feel comfortable sharing, I would love to see them. Subject-Verb agreement is next on our “Greatest Hits of English Grammar” list, and I need to figure out how to break it down for them. Conjugation of regular verbs in the present and simple past tense seems like it should be one of the steps…
