GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Grammar?
English grammar is the body of rules that describe the structure of expressions in the English language. This includes the structure of words, phrases, clauses and sentences. A text that contains more than one sentence is no longer in the realm of grammar but of discourse. The grammar of a language is approached in two ways: descriptive grammar is based on analysis of text corpora and describes grammatical structures thereof, whereas prescriptive grammar attempts to use the identified rules of a given language as a tool to govern the linguistic behaviour of speakers.

Grammar can be a challenging subject to teach. It is often difficult to explain when and why certain rules apply. Busy Teacher has 9,164 worksheets to help you teach your students grammar. This grammar worksheet has received a lot of positive feedback and does a nice job combining there is/are with prepositions of place. The worksheet is appealing to students because of its colorful image and useful for teachers because of the excellent gap fill exercise. If you are studying another topic in your classes, search for a different worksheet that your students will enjoy.
Recently ESL has moved away from teaching grammar through lectures and has begun to focus more on speaking practice. This new approach more closely mimics how native speakers learn a language. It is a critical shift and one that has been rather successful because students are learning English by using it rather than by memorizing material. This results in more rapidly improving fluency. There are so many exceptions to grammar rules that it seems foolish for students to memorize rules and exceptions for every structure. On the other hand, even using this approach, students need practice using what they have learned and these worksheets are creative ways to do just that.
