Grammar terms posters

Grammar terms posters

I use these posters in a variety of ways but often only displaying a few - not all. For older children, I often use this as a reading activity or grammar recap. I give them a small version A6 version (photocopy shrunk) to stick in their books then they have to either find examples in books or write their own. For younger children, I keep the appropriate terms A4 size and use a group or whole class activity with them drawing and writing further examples. For year 6 I used to give them to partners in a pack and they did oral tests to see if the other person could give examples of the random term selected.
