Thinking of entering a story writing competiton? This book will help you to write your best story ever! This essential primary guide to grammar, punctuation, and spelling has a clear, colour layout and quirky bird character to make it fun to use. The book is in two parts. The first part is a reference section of simple rules, tips, and examples to improve literacy skills for the test at the end of primary school. This divides into three sections - Grammar, Punctuation, and Spelling. The second part is an easy-to-use alphabetical word list of common tricky words, with inflections, but no meanings. This list highlights, using analysis from the Oxford Children's Corpus, words that are most frequently misspelt by this age group (age 8+), to target and rectify these common mistakes. There are helpful tips to guide the user around the alphabetical list to the word they are looking for, and notes at key words to aid correct spellings. It is a valuable resource for preparation for the new KS2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test that occurs every May in schools. Online spelling lists, punctuation, and grammar activities are also available for easy practice at home or as part of lesson starters or as homework.

Features:

  • A dictionary that supports children by guiding them to the correct spelling of the word they want to use, unlike online adult spellcheckers; market research has shown us that online spellcheckers are not used correctly, leading to errors around common words such as does and dose
  • A unique title with clearly presented rules on grammar, punctuation, and spelling to help improve children's writing skills and prepare for tests
  • Engaging and child-friendly design with full colour illustrations
  • Ideal for daily use as a practical guide on grammar, punctuation, and spelling
  • Ideal for teachers and parents to use as a reference to help improve their children's spelling and writing in preparation for the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling KS2 test coming May 2013
  • Consultant is Gill Matthews, writer and editor of several major literacy programmes, involved with the development of the National Literacy Strategy, lexicographers, grammarians, and educational consultants
  • ACCESSIBLE! AGE-APPROPRIATE! AUTHORITATIVE! FROM THE MARKET LEADING CHILDREN'S DICTIONARY PUBLISHER!
