Practice Makes Perfect Exploring Grammar by Gary Robert Muschla

This book contains helpful instruction and plenty of practice for your child to understand the basics of grammar and vocabulary. Understanding grammar is essential for your child to speak and write with competence and clarity. Practice Makes Perfect: Exploring Grammar gives your child bite-sized explanations of grammar and vocabulary, with engaging exercises that keep her or him motivated and excited to learn. They can practice the grammar skills that are challenging, polish skills they've mastered, and stretch themselves to explore skills they have not yet attempted. This title features 170 activities (plus answer key) that increase in difficulty as your child proceeds through the book. This book is appropriate for a 4th grade student working above his or her grade level, or as a great review and practice for a struggling 5th or 6th grader. Your student will learn how to: recognize types of sentences; understand sentence structure; identify parts of speech; use punctuation and capitalization together; and, find her or his own grammar mistakes. Topics include: Sentences, Nouns, Verbs, Pronouns, Adjectives, Adverbs, Prepositions, Conjunctions and Interjections, Punctuation and Capitalization, and Usage and Proofreading.
