As teachers, we all know that grammatical concepts have become a more rigorously tested concept in our classrooms, for better or for worse.
Regardless of your standpoint on that, at least we can help each other out with simple ways of making sure our stars are understanding the grammatical jargon we're teaching them.
So here's a quick quiz on abstract and collective nouns to kick-start the process. The idea of having two quizzes is that you give two pupils sat next to one another different quizzes but the answers to their partners quiz - et voila, your marking is cut down by quick peer assessment and a score to add to your records!
Let me know what other grammatical quizzes you need and I'll be happy to oblige - and, as always, let me know how your lessons go in the comments below.
