Climbing to Good English

By: SchoolAid

English in first grade is more or less an extension of reading and phonics. Phonics helps pupils to read; English helps them to write what they or others will read. In teaching pupils to express themselves in writing, English uses the concepts taught in phonics while adding some of its own. Climbing to Good English Workbook 1 is designed to to be used alongside a reading and phonics program. One page is provided for each day of school, starting the fourth or fifth week of the school year. Instructions for working each page are right on the pupil's page. There is no special teacher's edition.
