Schofield & Sims Grammar and Punctuation?is a comprehensive programme for teaching grammar and punctuation while also building on vocabulary, reading and writing skills. Through structured lessons, stimulating focus texts and engaging practice activities, children not only learn the correct terminology and usage of grammar and punctuation, but also develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply them successfully in their own writing.
Covering the National Curriculum requirements for Year 2, the?Grammar 3 Teacher?s Guide?contains supporting material for the 30 lessons found in the?Grammar 3?pupil book.
Based on the model ?teach, practise, apply and assess?, the guide provides you with everything you need to help children master the complexities of grammar and punctuation, including: the learning objective of each lesson and any key terms that children will encounter in the lesson; detailed teaching notes with a short ?Focus text? designed to help you to teach each learning point in context; reinforcement activities for each lesson, including ideas for applying each grammar or punctuation point to other areas of the curriculum; short dictation exercises to help you assess whether children have understood the learning point; an end-of-year test, covering all the grammar points in the pupil book, with detailed mark scheme and analysis sheet; answers to all the questions in the corresponding pupil book, with annotations to help you identify areas where pupils may need further revision; and a comprehensive glossary of grammatical terms to support teacher development.
