The Back to Basics series provides children with the opportunity to practise and consolidate the skills needed to achieve mastery over the Grammar and Punctuation content of the Year 1 Australian Curriculum.
The 20 units in this book contain activities designed to review and practise essential Year 1 Grammar and Punctuation skills.
Each unit contains:
- a brief explanation of a Grammar or Punctuation feature
- We Practise — several examples of the feature and its usage
- You Practise — 10 questions to help your child to practise and apply the feature
- BOB — a reminder to check the answers at the back of the book.
Parents and carers are encouraged to read and discuss the explanations and to do the We Practise sections together with their child as well as using the removable Game cards.
Review tests are provided at the end of the book to check that your child has successfully mastered the skills taught in Units 1–20.
