Alien Text Talk Daily Language Practice~Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation for Gr. 5-12
Alien Text Talk is a fun new take on daily oral language exercises. Instead of just proofreading and correcting punctuation, grammar, and spelling the student will be translating the sentence from "text speak" into a sentence using the proper writing conventions.
This download contains Week 1 of the 36 week program Alien Text Talk that I offer in numerous outlets.
Each week there are 9-10 text sentences that the student will need to translate and correct.
This is a great activity to reinforce grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization skills for bellwork or homework in addition to class instruction. It helps students see the vast difference in text speak and be able to apply the proper writing conventions at appropriate times.
The student copy can be copied off for the individual student or made into an overhead. Font is 16 point type for easy overhead reading.
An answer key is included.
•Works well for grades 5-12.
