Here are a few simple tips for getting in some grammar practice every day.

Grammar practice in the morning (or as a warm-up) can be as simple as writing a sentence on the board and asking your students lớn diagram the sentence. You could also use a sentence or question that is more specific to a skill you are focusing on. For example, you may write, "The football player played with his friends and drinks lots of water." You could then ask students to identify the error in this sentence và explain why it is incorrect. This is an excellent way to lớn practice finding inappropriate shifts in verb tense, yet it hardly takes up any instructional time.
