Daily Grammar Practice (DGP) 10I

Daily Grammar Practice Instruction Summary

Every week students will analyze a new sentence to learn the principles of grammar and mechanics. The sentences are in the daily grammar packet and will be posted here each week. Before coming to class, the students are expected to accomplish a task using the sentence assigned for the week. The tasks are:

Monday- find the part of speech for each word in the sentence

Tuesday-identify the parts of the sentence

Wednesday-identify clauses and the type of sentence

Thursday-capitalization and punctuation

Friday-diagram the sentence

Sentences will be checked daily and points will be given according to the number of tasks completed each week.
