JUST MIND YOUR LANGUAGE

Illustrations by Diane Walkey and Peggy Lindig.

This little book is a compilation of all the verses in books 1 and 2 of 'Windows Open Wide", gathered together on their own primarily as a resource book for teachers who find such material useful for their classes but who may not want to use a classroom language-book at this stage - or for those who ARE using W.O.W. but would also appreciate the convenience of having verses easily to hand in a separate volume. However it may also be seen simply a collection of humorous verse for young children - or as a first adventure into the patterns and structures of the English language, and as such will not only entertain and amuse but also accustom the reader to the way that language works and lead him or her to a gradual understanding of grammar, syntax and idiom. It may be used to great advantage by teachers of quite a wide range of age groups, since the verses, while straightforward and simple and sometimes in the ‘nonsense’ tradition, are not silly or condescending, and it is hoped that the book will find a welcome particularly in special needs and literacy classes. Each verse deals with a specific point of grammar, usage or, in one or two cases, vocabulary groups; these are indicated in the index in brackets after each title for the benefit of teacher or parent. Many of the verses are rhythm-based, i.e. they are at their best when recited boldly and rhythmically, perhaps by the whole group, which can be split into two for the several items that are in dialogue form. Such work will help to imprint the various patterns in the minds of the pupils, and bring liveliness and fun into the class.

WINDOWS OPEN WIDE (book three)

by Peter Oram, with drawings by Diane Walkey. This is the third book in this series, and although its general format is similar to that of the other two books, it is different in that the reading texts in this book are aimed more at the pupil of, say, 12 - 13, and in each of the sixteen chapters the text is in effect a 'mini-biography' of some British man or woman who has in one way or another contributed to society - personalites that have been chosen include Queen Elizabeth I, Eric Clapton, Richard Branson, Grace Darling and Wilfred Thesiger. The remainder of each chapter includes comprehension exercises on the text and vocabulary relating to it, and introduces a suggested grammar topic, with drills and practice routines related to it; interspersed among these, furthermore, are jokes, riddles and quotes from Shakespeare et al. Also included are songs and poems/verses that are usually related in some way to the texts, and suggestions for imaginative activities and role-playing.

PLEASE NOTE! ...

The price of this book is 12.00  Euros. In order to keep the costs as low as possible for schools, teachers and parents, this price is a fixed price, i.e. there is no discount or trade price.
