Each book in the Instant Lessons series is a collection of fresh and versatile worksheet activities that can be photocopied for student use. They are unique in providing the highest quality learning outcomes with instant usability.
Use them to supplement your existing resources, to extend student capabilities, for revision purposes, or for class work when the regular teacher is absent.
Write Now! is a new six-book series that teaches basic grammar and spelling conventions, written by the wildly creative Andrea Hayes. The series uses fun and eccentric contexts to engage students’ interests in learning about language and how it works. Each photocopiable worksheet contains a reference section which explains rules, conventions and exceptions in clear and simple terms. This provides both teachers and students with a ‘Metalanguage’ – a language used to discuss and describe language. This will assist students in applying the knowledge through practical activities on the same pages.
The level of difficulty progresses through the series, with Books 1 and 2 suiting senior primary classes, or junior secondary students who may be struggling with literacy and need to revisit basic skills. Books 3, 4, 5 and 6 are suitable for junior through to middle secondary students. Selected answers are provided to make marking time-efficient.
