Description

This book offers a whole school approach to the teaching of grammar and punctuation that is fully matched to the demands of the English grammar and punctuation test and the new curriculum. With the shift towards elegant, well-constructed sentences, it offers the busy teacher three simple steps to motivate and engage children, through: * explicit teaching and modelling; * over forty practical games and activities; * application and improvement within editing and proof reading. This book draws on recent research but also is based on many years of classroom practice and a number of case studies. Practical examples develop teachers’ understanding of grammatical terms and progression and show how it is possible to have a significant impact on vocabulary, sentence structure and children’s writing in general. A balance is found where skills are explicitly taught but within the context of an exciting and interesting curriculum.show more
