Taming the SPaG Monster: Tackling Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) can seem overwhelming with rules and complicated terminology. Each week we’ll explore different aspects of SPaG, break it down and practice what we've discovered.

Description

Class Experience

Students will:
Explore various aspects and rules of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
Practice identifying word classes, types of punctuation and spelling errors in given texts
Practice using what they learn in their own writing
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I've almost 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years, I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills and also SPaG lessons daily in term time for several years; as well as teaching English online. I have also tutored students in SPaG skills on a 1:1 basis over the last 3 years, to improve general skills and for tests and exams. 
I have edited both creative and formal work over many years on a voluntary basis and have recently joined the writing/ editing group for an educational platform.
No homework is set for this class.
A notebook or paper and something to write with, or a device to use for writing. A small whiteboard may be handy but by no means necessary.
Informal assessment during class. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All content is age-appropriate. 
A variety of online and published works have been referred to over years of studying and teaching this subject, including but not limited to:
twinkl.co.uk
'English for Everyone' - DK books
'Woe Is I'  Patricia T. O'Conner
'Oxford Modern English Grammar' Bas Aarts
BBC Bitesize- bbc.co.uk
