The activities contained in this blackline master book allow teachers to meet the requirements of national literacy Standards with regard to Language Arts. The book provides opportunities for the consolidation of English language skills that children should be equipped with as a result of their elementary schooling.

The approach is basic and simple - teach the skill; reinforce it in a variety of ways; use it in context as often as possible.

To help the consolidation process wall charts have been provided on the concepts treated in this book - it is suggested that they are enlarged and displayed as a constant reference point for the class.

Our artist has used the theme of ‘unusual beings’ to provide a little light relief for students doing the activities in the book.
