Heroes in Training: Zeus and the Thunderbolt of Doom
by Joan Holub & Suzanne Williams is an inventive tale about Greek mythology that is accessible for second and third grade learners. Filled with similes and challenging vocabulary, this series introduces students to Zeus as a ten-year-old boy meeting his brothers and sisters for the first time. He doesn't know he is a Greek God-----yet! Use this story to review parts of speech and sentence structure. The grammar review is divided into three sections: Chapters 1-3, 4-6 and 7-10. Students review nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs as well as subjects and predicates (simple and compound) and irregular and regular verb forms. All examples, except those referenced by a page number, derive from the story.
