We are now taking practice test for this Leap Test that is coming in March.
As I work with my students, I am discovering that they don’t know basic English grammar.
I also see that some of them don’t like to read. When i have them read out loud, i find that some of them can’t really read well.
I really want to help these kids, but i don’t know where to start. I find out that they really can’t recoginze the parts of speech.
I need more hands on ideas and multimedia ideas. Help!
I suggest that they start with our program Grammar Shape-up, which provides a hands-on review of the parts of speech.
Developing Critical Thinking Skills Sets 1 and 2 is also a great program for them. It will help them develop their reading comprehension, ability to make inferences and sharpen their critical thinking skills.
