Feedback form is now closed.
Reading and writing can be challenging for some kids, especially when they are asked to learn the parts of speech. Start by teaching them simple definitions and checks, show them why it will make them better readers and writers then give them a chance to use these skills. They will learn which words they should change in a sentence, how the smallest ones can carry the biggest meaning and how to arrange them to make their writing exciting and interesting. Nouns, adverbs and prepositions will no longer be a random topic, but an integral part of language learning. Teach your students about the power of words.
