To THE TEACHER
My First Grammar is a fun and easy grammar book series designed for
young English learners. The grammar concepts and activities in this series are
designed for the needs of elementary school students from the second to fourth
grade. My First Grammar uses a spiral approach in presenting essential
grammar points. This allows students to study from any book in the series without
missing important grammar points. My First Grammar provides various learnercentered activities that encourage active learning.
My First Grammars main concern is nurturing a feeling of success while
students learn grammar. By providing age-appropriate grammar structures,
sentences and activities, this grammar series helps students maintain the feeling
of success and interest. Constant linking and cumulative reviews ensure that
students reuse the grammar concepts and retain them.

Organization of the Student Book


Link and Review at the beginning of each lesson can be used as a cumulative review
or a tool for assessment. In each lesson, teachers can use this section to monitor
students language development and identify areas of weakness in need of review.
Look and Learn sections introduce new grammar concepts in a fun, easy, and
uncluttered manner. They offer a resource for students to refer to while practicing the
grammar concepts that are newly introduced. These sections also provide a concise
grammar summary that can be revisited in later lessons for review.
Look and Say activities allow students a step-by-step approach to using the grammar
in context. These activities provide illustrations and examples of how the target
grammar is used. Teachers can rely on these activities to ease students into a feeling
of comfort in learning the grammar.
Look and Practice activities provide a variety of methods for students to use and practice
the material they are learning. They are designed to give students a sense of understanding
and success in mastering English. Some activities allow students an open ended response
giving them greater control over their personal learning experience. Furthermore, colorful
illustrations and real photos aid students to use their visualization in learning process.
Interactive games or entertaining comics are provided in Lesson 4 of Units 1, 2, 4
and 5 and Lesson 3 of Units 3 and 6. These additional activities are used to wrap up
the units. Students will consolidate the English grammar concepts taught in each unit,
while enjoying the activities.
Progress Tests are provided in Lesson 4 of unit 3 and Lesson 4 of unit 6. These tests
are to be used to assess students development.
