Grammar is FUN!

Sometimes people send me great links through email. Here is one that came today:

Grammar Ninja.  The screen comes up like this. Students click on the blue word that matches. Work your way through all of the questions and you will see a screen with Mission Complete!

Which word would you click?

Easy screen, first time out!

Keep going and try to improve your time. You will move up the warrior ranks. There are hints to help you learn all the different kinds of grammar words.

Here's a hard one, Merge the Word at Road to You have to change a four letter word by changing just one letter at a time.  Starting with the easiest puzzle you need to change the word BITE to CHEW, but only change one letter at a time.

How would YOU do it?  Can you beat my score?

39 Clues: Unstoppable: Book 1, Nowhere to Run

One of my favorite blog authors, Erik from This kid reviews , was able to read an advance copy of the new 39 Clues Series Three, Unstoppable: Nowhere to Run.

Rather than repeat what he's already written, just take a look at his review by clicking the link above.
I still haven't finished reading the Cahill vs. Vespers series, but this one sounds just as exciting!

The books will be available to everyone on October 1st. Look for them in your library or bookstore starting next week.
