    A very rigorous and complete 1-year course in grammar (parts of speech, word functions, punctuation, sentence structure and patterns). Each lesson has one page of instruction/explanation and one page of exercises. Five incremental reviews assure student retention and mastery of the material. Although designed to be self-instructional, some teacher help may be required. This book would be an excellent follow-up to Easy Grammar or Journey to Grammar Land, as it covers grammar at a college level! Tests and answer keys included.

    Teaching writing can be very rewarding, even if frustrating at times. The key is to find a program that teaches the useful skills of writing in a way that children will open up to and enjoy. If we ask the question, "What do children love?", one answer will always be, "Games, without a doubt, games!" So, why not try and incorporate games into the writing process? Here is a book that resulted from that. The five parts of this book are: first, activities designed to ease kindergarten and 1st graders into writing; second, slightly silly and not very long writing activities (this way it is more something to enjoy than to think of as an assignment); third, nine playful ways to improving spelling and handwriting, and to increase understanding of English grammar; fourth, activities that help children work on more sophisticated stories; and last of all, activities that involve longer writing projects, some of which will require a half hour or so of time. As the teacher, you can select whichever activities and games you feel would be best for your children, made easier because each game is graded and placed into one of the five areas above. 52 games in all. ~ Zach

    This is the ideal journal to introduce kids to writing about themselves. The book has blanks for students to fill in (lines are .75" with a dotted midline) with some of their favorite things. For example, My name is ____. My favorite color is ____. Some fill-ins are brief; others are lengthier, providing variety. Plenty of space is provided for kids to draw pictures of their favorite things as well. Other activities include coloring pictures based on preference (for example, pictures of places are given and kids color the place where they most like to be). Sometimes kids are prompted to draw what they like and then color it. 140 mini star stickers are included, which students can use to spice up the pages or to mark off on a chart when pages are completed. A great way to introduce children to the joys of journaling, and strengthen handwriting and drawing practice. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Get children familiar with the letters of their name with this 17" x 22" poster. Write the child's name at the top of the poster, then count the number of letters in the name, color the letters in the alphabet provided that appear in the name, write which letters begin and end the name, and lastly think of words that can be formed using the same letters, etc. Each section has its own fun black and white outline and illustrations for children to color before proudly displaying in the schoolroom or above child's bed. – Rachel

    This fun book holds a variety of prompts to jump-start kids' creativity. Doodling pages hold a shape or line and encourage children to finish the doodle however they like. Drawing pages contain part of a picture and direct children to provide the missing part, like a fun and silly hat for a boy, decorating the bake sale cookies, or drawing their amazing discovery on the leaf. Writing pages range from fill-in-the-blank stories or statements to writing a story to go with a picture. Many pages combine drawing with writing like drawing a car of the future and then writing about all of the special things the car can do. There is fantastic variety to the 60 pages of activities; you should have no trouble finding activities that appeal to any child. Many kids will think this is just fun work, but in fact it is very helpful to get kids from picturing to writing, especially those young learners who have ideas but cannot yet put them into writing. Any child will benefit from and enjoy these prompts, but it could be also be a valuable resource for a non-verbal child or one with language processing difficulty. These would make a good warm-up activity for your daily language arts lesson. 64 pp, pb. ~ Sara

    This Usborne picture book has several uses. As a child begins speaking, you can point to a picture and tell them what the word is. Before you know it, the child will be able to name and describe the pictures on its own. As the child begins reading, he will be able to match the written word to the picture. The words are categorized in 25 settings, like home, travel, store, or farm. ~ Enh

    Your child's favorite little monkey, Curious George, is curious about them! The format of this keepsake memory book is very similar to a baby book, but it is one that your child can fill in all by themselves and tell all about their family, friends, school, and plans for their future. Curious George will have them writing, drawing, and pasting photos on every page as they answer his many curious questions. It is great for boys or girls, as it is gender-neutral. Any Curious George fan would love a chance to tell George all about themselves, and you'll love the memories that this book will hold for you to look back on. Hc, 51 pgs. - elise

    All right, you lovers of hands-on activities! Here's a good one for you! This game is subtitled "A Creative Way to Build an Endless Number of Sentences Using 250 Puzzle Pieces." Each laminated puzzle piece has a word or punctuation or empty blank. The pieces are color-coded into groups: punctuation, verbs, nouns, articles, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, and personal pronouns. You can choose from a variety of games designed to build knowledge of parts of speech, sentence construction, vocabulary, and punctuation. In one game, you'll build sentences with a blank space for a noun, and the children will find a noun to put into the sentence. In another game, children take turns building sentences one piece at a time. Of course, if you're working with only one child, you can be the other player. In another game, children have to unscramble the puzzle pieces. In another game, players spin a spinner to accumulate pieces until they have enough to build a sentence. There are two other games, and you can even make up your own. As a former English teacher/tutor, I can tell you that with any game like this, you'll encounter words that can appear in more than one part of speech; be on guard against potential confusion. Other than that caveat, I only see two other tiny flaws. The writer of the instructions completely forgot to list the pink-coded personal pronouns in the list of categories, and the cyan blue of the adverbs looks too close to the blue of the verbs. But those are all minor points. Now, you're ready to have loads of fun building sentences and learning grammar. ~ Caryl

    This older cousin of the Funny Phonics game achieves the same standard of replay-ability and motivating fun in practice, only with the goal of learning parts of speech. Up to four sentence constructors can play. Durable game board, double-sided player boards and cards offset the somewhat flimsy 12-sided cardstock die (that you may need to reinforce with tape!). Strategy, chance, and changing outcomes keep game play exciting. There are two levels of play. The shorter version, for younger readers, requires them to make only two, six-word sentences using four parts of speech: nouns, adjectives, articles, and verbs. If you are playing with even younger children, you can play with just nouns, adjectives, and verbs (by folding the player boards differently). The longer version requires two complete sentences, each using 2 adjectives, 2 nouns, a verb, article, and preposition. The 136 word and picture cards are color-coded by function and stacked in piles by color on the game board. Players move around the board depending on rolls of the die and/or instructions on the game board, collecting part of speech cards. If they're lucky, they'll roll or land on a space that lets them choose "Any Card", giving them an edge in completing sentences (more quickly and sillier). Word cards must be read (most are simple words and sight words) to be won. Sentences are constructed from collected cards by placing them on the correctly labeled (noun, verb, etc.) squares on player boards. The winner is the first person to make two silly sentences and read them aloud. Depending upon the reading level of your children, you may control the type (word or picture) of card used or its difficulty – or even use two separate decks for differing reading abilities among players (You can always expand play, too, by making some of your own cards to use with the game). It's a great little game for practicing sentence construction and parts of speech in an entertaining context.

    This step-by-step method of teaching writing skills will fit into any reading and language arts program. These reproducible workbooks challenge students to organize their thoughts in descriptive, narrative, persuasive, and mostly expository writings by using the four-square method. This method instructs students to write their main thought above a four-square box. Students then proceed to fill in the box, putting primary thoughts in three of the squares and a conclusion in the last. Each book in this series is broken down into five sections. In section one, students become familiar with the foursquare method by looking at examples and filling out some straight-forward squares. Students are primarily taught how to use this method in expository writing, so in section two, the book gives instructions on how to use the method for other styles of writing. In section three, the book provides samples of the method and essays that come from the samples. The essays can be used as models for students, and instructors could also use this section for reference. Section four supplies hints for applying the four-square method to other subject areas, as well as to a longer research or term paper. The last section in each book provides prompts to help students get started after they have learned the entire method. Overall, these books provide useful instruction to students who are visual learners and also to students who just need help organizing and focusing their writing. This unique approach to teaching basic writing skills will help students understand their writing and how to structure it better. The books with CDs are revised and updated versions that include an enhanced CD of printable PDFs of additional material – examples, activities, and writing exercises. The book for Early Learners focuses on introducing and explaining the method and simply illustrating its use through drawing and dictation. ~ Rachel
