Help your kids dig deep, discover the language.
Ms. Jewl's is a popular figure from "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," 1978, by Louis Sachar.
These pages were built for grade 7 EFL students but translate directly to at-level Native Learners. As in many milieus, where native material is used, there is not enough support to digest the grammar and intricacies of language. Hence, with each story, I built them a small booklet.
-story grammar: vocab and phrases pointing out expressions an nuances of target language
-new context for vocab
-grammar element; present in story, implicit but not concrete, even for native learners.
-writing prompts to utilize and assess new language tools
As for Common Core. This certainly covers all Common Core Language from 5.1- 5.6; also appropriate for other grade levels as well. For example, we use it with 7th graders in Taiwan. There is certainly challenging and advanced material here.
