What is Grammar Skills Practice?

Grammar practice allows students to apply specific grammar skills in the context of real sentences. Currently, we offer 1 domain of grammar practice: Capitalization & Punctuation, with content for skills in grades K–7.

What does Grammar Practice look like for students?

In grammar practice, students are able to answer skill-based questions in a variety of formats, including multiple-choice, "fix the sentence," and "drag and place." Each session will have 10 questions targeted at a specific grammar skill.

Drag and place question:

An example drag and place question: a sentence without ending punctuation is shown; the student is presented with five punctuation marks, and needs to drag one of them in place.

Fix the sentence question:

An example fix the sentence question: one of the words in the sentence has two versions shown, and the student needs to select the correct version.

Is there a pre-test?

No—students can jump right into grammar practice. If they have taken an ELA pre-test before, they will be placed in Grammar practice based on this level. If not, they'll start a little bit below their rostered grade level. Then, Freckle will adapt from there!

Is there teacher reporting?

Teachers can view student progress on the Assignments page, Activity Feed, ELA Performance by Standard report, and Class Grouping report.
