SPRINGBOARD GRAMMAR HANDBOOK

The Grammar Handbook in your Springboard Book will be the basis of our grammar instruction. Please CLICK HERE for a link to the PDF version. Students are required to read the handbook carefully. Then, students will use the websites provided below to practice the skills. Students will occasionally complete online practice in class for informal formative grades.
