Improve Your English teaches children to write good sentences, whether simple, compound or complex ones. It explains just how sentences can be made more interesting, using sub clauses or those small but vital words, conjunctions, such as, ‘if,’ ‘but,’ ‘so’. The book focuses on how to use good punctuation in the right place and makes children aware of those tricky spellings, called homophones – words that sound the same, but are spelled differently, such as, ‘their’ and ‘there.’
It shows young writers how they can improve their writing by correcting some basic errors. The parts of speech are also explained in such a simple way, with our ‘friendly ghost haunts spookily,’ so your child will soon be using colorful adjectives, verbs and adverbs.
A section of graded exercises, with suggested answers, helps the child practice their spelling, punctuation and grammar skills.
