First Grade Grammar Literacy Centers

Who likes teaching grammar to little ones? I love it, possibly because I was an ESOL teacher for several years fresh out of college, and I was always thinking of ideas to introduce new concepts in a child-friendly, non-threatening way. My objective: Make learning fun. Anchor charts and printables are super helpful, but we all know that kids love games and activities, so I started to make little sets of activities to complement my grammar lessons. We would do them together as a whole group and sometimes in small groups, and I would let them ‘play’ on their own at our language literacy center. I also placed them in the early-finisher’s basket because they just l-o-v-e-d it. Good for me! My work is done! Kids were actually having fun learning about… GRAMMAR!
Because my students truly enjoyed these activities, I ended up making loads in order to cover every concept I taught. This included puzzles, sorting cards, task cards, games, and simple activities that they could do independently once introduced. Let me share some of the activities that my students liked the most:
I've included clear directions for each activity for other teachers to use in their classrooms, including pictures of how to use them and answer keys. I hope your kids can enjoy them as much as mine did! :)
These are the units that are included in the bundle: Pronouns  Subject-Verb Agreement  Adjectives  Nouns  Conjunctions  Commas  Singular and Plural Nouns  Verb Tenses  Prepositions  Determiners Capitalization Inflectional Endings Shades of Meaning Multiple Meanings Synonyms and Antonyms Homophones Base Words and Affixes Sort into Categories (FREEBIE)  Here is a freebie that you can download. Students will practice sorting pictures into correct categories:
If you are like me and are looking for a fun, hands-on approach for your students to practice grammar, I strongly recommend this packet! Whether you follow Common Core or not, you will find this bundle useful when it comes to teaching grammar.

These have a seal of approval from my kids! Plus, you can check out the feedback from other teachers who have used them in their classrooms.
