Course Description

Grammar is the basis of our language.

This course will give you so many strategies for teaching sentence grammar in an exciting and engaging way.


If we think of grammar as the basis of our language, like place value is the basis of our number system, and that words, like digits, change their meaning depending on where they are placed in a sentence, our language starts to make sense.

Learn Chris’s exciting colour coded approach to teaching Grammar. Each part of speech is given a colour and explicitly taught for understanding.

Your students will not only understand how language works, but enjoy and look forward to learning it.

Grammar Magic is a multi-sensory approach to teaching grammar, using explicit teaching, songs, props, games and coloured grammar die.

Audience
