Conjunctions and Interjections

Cover the deceptively difficult grammar topic of conjunctions and interjections with your class. After reviewing the provided definitions and examples of interjections and several different kinds of conjunctions, pupils will complete five exercises. Exercises require pupils to identify conjunctions and interjections as well as use them in writing. Because this resource is formatted with five separate exercises, it would be perfect to use as a daily warm-up, completing one exercise a day. Note: This resource is part of a series. 

Personal Pronouns

It may seem like a simple skill, but who couldn't benefit from a quick grammar review? Specifically, pronouns are the topic of this three-page review worksheet which provides pupils with six different exercises. Individuals will: identify pronouns in sentences, identify pronouns and their antecedents in sentences, plug-in pronouns to sentences, write sentences using designated pronouns, and write a paragraph using various pronouns. Also included is a chart showing the singular and plural versions of first, second, and third person pronoun forms. Note: This resource is part of a series.

Question words, question marks
