Izzy the Interjection informs kids with these short lessons and skits, a comic ebook, a music video, and several quizzes that check for understanding.

Show the music video, and the shorter videos, as part of a whole-class introduction or review. It's sure to get kids laughing -- and paying attention. If time permits, have your students work through the lessons and quizzes at their own pace while you circulate to address any questions. You can monitor students' progress using the reports. Interjections are a fun part of speech -- an easy-to-grasp favorite for many students -- so be sure to add some fun activities for small groups: Have students create their own short, interjection-filled skits to share with the class after they finish working on the site.Continue reading Show less
