More About This Book

Overview

Grammar Street, a guide to teaching nouns and verbs to young learners, contains a series of mnemonic devices which give students multiple ways to remember the rudiments of grammar. Teachers are able to hook students' interest through drawings, voices, and stories about the citizens of Grammar Street. Intended for incorporation into the existing curriculum, Grammar Street adds a creative component to English instruction and includes plans for convenient forms of student application. Children understand English more readily when connected to familiar and concrete concepts such as streets and families. Only with a strong understanding of nouns and verbs are students ready to embrace the detailed rules and irregularities of the English language. Grammar Street provides stories and illustrations which leave many students looking forward to grammar lessons while increasing their ability to remember the functions of nouns and verbs long after each lesson is taught.
