This neat and motivational learning book of Language Forms is a must for all teachers and students of Years/Grades 3-6. It makes an excellent reference for students in preparing them for high school, and teaches them the difference between synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, homophones and homographs in a fun and easy way. This book clearly identifies the key facets of each structure and provides exemplary models and examples.
For students to learn, and then apply their learning, students must be able to identify the skills being learned, and develop meaningful understandings of how to apply their learning in practice. This book collectively groups all of the key language forms, so that learning is not fractional or isolated, but links in a logical and meaningful way.
This unit would ideally be taught over a five week period – one language form per week, concluding with the assessment at the back of the book. A typical lesson unit would take 30-45 minutes to complete.
World-wide curriculums now promote understandings of functional grammar, and include a scope and sequence of skills K-12 in all strands of English. The content included in this book meets the outcomes for learning Language Forms, and in their usage in developing spelling and writing skills.
This book targets students in Years 3-6 and prepares them for more advanced English Language learning in high school.
