English Grammar SparkNotes Study Cards
I always suggest students use notecards as a study tool, and these are prepared for you. Maybe you are reviewing for a big test like the SAT/ACT. Maybe you have a research paper to write and want to brush up on grammar. Maybe you don't need a workbook, but still want to keep your essay writing in tip-top shape. Maybe you are a non-native English speaker wanting to improve your grammar/writing/speaking by polishing up on the rules. 600 study cards review key concepts, conjugations and rules by asking you definition, true/false, and fill-in-the-blank questions. Study alone or with a friend. You will cover: adjectives, adverbs, clauses, grammar mistakes, modifiers, nouns, phrases, pronouns, punctuation, sentences, sentence types & verbs. Each card is 3" x 2" and comes in a sturdy blue storage box w/lid. Here is a sample card: "Explain the difference in parts of speech between these and those in the following sentence: These bears are more dangerous than those" (on front). The category for the question ("adjectives") is listed on the bottom front. And on the back: "These modifies bears in the sentence. Therefore, it is a demonstrative adjective. Those, which takes the place of a pronoun, is a demonstrative pronoun." You could read a card as a warm-up activity before you start your language arts for the day. Make up a game with them! Send a box off with your college student! ~ Sara
