Hi, I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about how to teach English grammar to children. Teaching grammar in an elementary class room is very easily integrated in to the writing work shop so if you are in a classroom teaching writing as part of your language arts curriculum you can integrate both using reading and writing to teach some of the concepts. When you're teaching your children to begin writing you can integrate, do a mini lesson on a specific rule, for example usage of commas or capitalization of proper nouns. So you could do a mini lesson for example of a five or ten minute talk where you focus on that one specific topic and then ask kids to incorporate that in to their work. And as you're doing peer reviews, the kids might notice that specific rule more in their writing workshop. Some people use their writer's workbooks as the place to also store notes about the mini lessons. So give your students notes about a particular rule of usage or grammar to keep as part of their notebook and they'll have that almost as a reference to go back to while they're doing their writing. you can also use literature to talk about these rules. So for example, if you want to emphasize a specific rule you might find a picture book where that rule is used and read it out loud, talk about how it's used and point it out and ask students to incorporate that in to their writing. So for example, capitalization, you might read a book about a specific place and that place is capitalized in the book so it brings home the message. So those are some ideas about how to teach English grammar to children.
