Use these fully interactive products to teach students important skills in grammar, punctuation, and spelling. The self-correcting activities work on ALL brands of interactive whiteboards. The activities are fun, but they aren't gimmicks; they're based on standards and benchmarks. The product comes with 270 sentences that need to be edited. And if that's not enough, the program allows thousands of custom sentences and paragraphs to be created and saved! Using the whiteboard, students can make (and undo) corrections. They can click to see where the errors are without revealing the corrections. They can also click to see the correct answers. The PC/Mac CD provides ready-to-use lessons. The book format makes it easy for teachers to see the entire scope of the product at a glance. Pages from the book can be copied and assigned as individual work. The content is correlated to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Great format. Presents a summary of grammar rules in a few pages that students may keep in their folders for the year. Provides plenty of practice and lots of review. The CD is a great way to engage all students in a review activity when they enter the room. However, I think the leveling is a little low. I had to purchase the 6th grade level to match the rigor of our fifth grade California state textbook.
