i loved english in school.
when we were diagramming sentences in english class
i used to feel like
there was only the teacher and i in the classroom.
maybe figuratively that was the case,
but will i have the finesse to teach it?
ruth heller’s world of language series
is a great way to introduce grammar
without formally teaching it,
at least at first.
she covers it all:
interjections and conjunctions,
after you’ve read the books together
the child will have some familiarity,
and you will have a refresher course
as well as examples at-the-ready
for when the child shows interest and ability.
the montessori method has a great language curriculum
which includes grammar
(above: grammar symbols from alison’s montessori)
but a good book just adds to the breadth.
enjoy…cause i can’t wait!
i’ve already got “merry-go-round: a book about nouns” on hold at the library.
