Major Fun with Electronic SuperSpeed Grammar

I thought my class and I were having fun with Electronic SuperSpeed 1000.  Not nearly as much fun as we are having with Electronic SuperSpeed Grammar.  Not only does it drive each concept home (One of my students piped up and said, "OK Miss N, I think we know what a noun is by now!!!"), but it is a lot of fun to do.  So far we have covered nouns, verbs, sentences and adjectives.  I was the most excited about the Sentence lesson because it is always so difficult to get the concept of a sentence across to first graders. This lesson breaks it down and makes it very simple to follow.  Furthermore, A LOT of talking is required.  The sentences that we are coming up with are hilarious, too.  The laughter and smiles all around the room are so much fun for me and the kids.  Here are a few examples:

The delicate bird sang.
The enormous, angry teacher breathed fire.
The precious diamond sparkled.
The spicy pepperoni pizza burned my mouth.

At the end of the day, before my students are dismissed each of them must tell me a sentence following the adjective, noun, verb pattern.  This has really helped spice up their writing and vocabulary.  I give out Super Improver stickers for expecially excellent sentences.  I LOVE Electronic SuperSpeed Grammar.  The ecstatic, gleeful teacher danced with joy because her students were writing such amazing sentences!!
