    Someone help me please!

    I'm a PPA teacher and end up teaching Grammar 3 times a week - not with the same class, thankfully.

    I do try and make it fun, intersting, silly, varied etc., but halfway through the year I'm dying of boredom.

    Any suggestions to keep me sane?

    Perhaps you could get the students to devise the work?

    I plan the grammar for our year 5/6 and my target is to make it fun. I put lots of sentences around to room for children to identify e.g tenses, speech and passive. We did silly sentences with adverbs. First person writes a pronoun at the top of the page, fold it over pass it on, add a verb then pass on, add an adverb then read out. They were silly sentences but good fun. Have also used Kung fu punctuation to liven things up. A few ideas for you!
