Grammar (K-3)


  1. Busy Teacher – Whether you’re looking for worksheets on a specific topics, like movies, nationalities, or music; or on a specific area of grammar, like tenses, gerunds, prepositions, or modal verbs, this website has got you covered. The worksheets are unique in that they come in various styles. Some are purely for grammar practice, some are colorful with several illustrations for young learners and some have sound files or are in PowerPoint presentation format.
  2. ClassK12 – At the time of adding this website, it was free for teachers but there is some indication that may be “free to try” in the future. It’s pretty straightforward and easy to use. Adjust the difficulty level to match student performance. Real-time feedback and performance reports. K-5 students can practice before they “play” in whatever assignment given. Worksheets are also provided.
  3. Collins Dictionary (Grammar Guide) – This section is more of a tutorial for educators teaching language arts (including grammar) than it is for teaching directly to students. A great way to brush up on some of your existing knowledge.
  4. (Grammar) – Various grammar games for students from Kindergarten to grade 8. For younger students, games concentrate on the the basic building blocks of sentences (e.g. nouns and verbs) and introduces descriptive adjectives and adverbs. For more older grades, students can experiment with using transition words and commas as road signs in stories, spot fragment sentences, build complete sentences of their own and even master the tricky concept of subject-verb agreement. 
  5. ESL Flashcards (Grammar) – Printable flashcards with images and words for teaching English grammar topics such as countable and uncountable nouns, adjectives, prepositions, irregular verbs, and more!
  6. EZ School – Not the most visually pleasing to the eye but there are quite a few activities and games worth checking out. The teacher dashboard is very simple and there is no reporting function. It has been free during the pandemic but warns that it might not stay free.
  7. Funbrain (Grammar Gorillas) – A grammar game for students in grades 2-6. Select the correct part of speech to complete the sentence. Each time you select the correct word, the Grammar Gorillas get a banana.
  8. Grammar Bytes – A pretty scaled down website with a selection of terms, handouts, exercises and presentations geared at grammar. Might be able to use this website for grade 3 students but not any grades lower than that. Would recommend more for the intermediate grades.
  9. Grammaropolis – Using the parts of speech as animated characters, this approach blends character-based content with more traditional quiz-based assessment and is designed to address students’ varied learning styles. It was created and refined in the ultimate proving grounds: the classroom. The basic option is free but more resources require payment.
  10. Help Learning– Create printable tests and worksheets from questions provided. Select one or more questions using the checkboxes above each question. Then, click the “ADD SELECTED QUESTIONS TO A TEST: button before moving to another page. It is very simplied – no bells or whistles here.
  11. Khan Academy – There are videos and questions to help grade 2-9 students practice what they learn. Videos can be done individually or shown as a whole class. Teachers can use their dashboard to assign grammar sections to students and make sure the work has been completed.
  12. NoRedInk – Designed to help students learn and practice essential elements of English grammar and understand important elements of good writing. There’s material for just about every possible writing convention students might need help with. Beyond grammar practice, it allows teachers to create and assign writing prompts, thus usefully expanding assessment potential beyond grammar drills. The free option is pretty expansive but there is a premium option as well. Too hard for students under grade 3. The basic option is free but more resources require payment.
  13. Quill – A website for interactive grammar, writing practice and development. It features hundreds of activities organized into five separate tools – Proofreader, Grammar, Connect, Diagnostic and Lessons. All of the tools offer differentiation for ELL students. Teachers can create a classroom, add students, assign diagnostics, single activities, or entire units to individual students, small groups, or a whole class.  The site advertises that it is for grades 1-12 so some hunting for material will be necessary. The basic option is free but more resources require payment.
  14. Road to Grammar Jr – Fairly simplistic website with lots of material listed in alphabetical order. Available to complete online or in PDF format. This website was orignally aimed at ELL students but could be used in a regular classroom as well.
  15. Schmoop – Click on any of the sections to get the lowdown on all things grammar. There are loads of examples and common mistakes, and they’ll let you know when you need to be on point and when you can play a little fast and loose with those pesky rules.
  16. SoftSchools – Provides a generous amount of free worksheets and quizzes on all sorts of grammar topics for student from K – grade 12.
  17. Sumdog – Games-based practice of grammar and spelling with curriculum-aligned content. Teachers can assign activities to individual groups and students depending on their needs. Unfortunately, there is a price tage attached to the spelling and grammar options (the only free option involves math content). It looks like some work has been done to continually improve this program though. The basic option is free but more resources require payment.
  18. Super Teacher Worksheets – There are different types of worksheets depending on the grammar lesson needed to be taught. Some of the worksheets are free but the rest will need a subscription to use. They have been categorized below to make it easier:
  19. Thoughtful Learning Inside Grammar website – Each grammar unit uses videos, instruction, examples, and downloadable activities to teach standards-based language skills. It can be taught in class or from a distance. (Units are provided for grades 2-7 with grades 8-10 coming soon.) There are demos available.
  20. Word Game Time (Grammar) – Knowing the different parts of speech helps students begin to learn how sentences are put together and understand the building blocks of vocabulary and writing. Through free games, videos, and worksheets, students learn how to recognize the different parts of speech and how to use them to build sentences. Note: Currently, the games need to be reconstructed as Flash Player is no longer available but the videos and worksheets are still active.
  21. WorksheetWorks – Every worksheet generator has options to make what you need. Depending on the topic, you can control different aspects such as the problem difficulty, the kinds of problems asked, and even the appearance of the page. The worksheets are easy to read and have better spacing than others available elsewhere.
