The Grammar Book: Understanding and teaching primary grammar
Shortlisted for Educational Book of the Year at the Education Resources Awards 2021.
Everything you need to teach grammar in the primary classroom.
What is the subjunctive mood? And when do you use a semi-colon? Are these questions that you, as a teacher, are afraid to ask? Cue this book! Written by two experienced teachers, The Grammar Book provides everything you need to teach grammar at primary level. Covering what you need to know as well as practical ideas to enliven your teaching, this book will make grammar fun and engaging – for both the pupils and for you too!
Written in Zoë and Timothy Paramour’s funny, frank and reassuring style, this definitive guide is all about the importance of teaching grammar as a tool for writing, not as an ‘extra’ and certainly not as a boring lesson. Instead, the ideas presented are linked to a range of National Curriculum units, with original short texts through which the teaching of grammar is used to support the delivery of the wider English curriculum and prepare children for Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) assessments. All teaching resources can also be downloaded from the companion website.
Each chapter covers a different element of grammar and provides you with everything you need to know as well as teaching ideas, cross-curricular links and resources, making The Grammar Book a must-have resource for teaching primary grammar effectively in the classroom or as part of homeschooling.
