Exercises from the Book...
When I asked Barry if I could post four or five exercises from the book at this website, he cried, "Absolutely!" Then came one of the hardest chores I've had to complete in a long while: how to choose just five. Each exercise in the book, just so you know, comes with several pages of teaching materials (practice examples, cartoons, etc.) that will help you instruct your students to be successful with these exercises.
After much pondering, here are the five exercises I have chosen. I hope they provide a glimpse of the "wonderfulness" that is this book!
From Chapter 1: Exercise 1...a great way to teach nouns!
From Chapter 2: Exercise 7...revising a funny story with new knowledge of verbs!
From Chapter 6: Exercise 1...exploring the different types of clauses!
From Chapter 11: Exercise 9...giggle while learning about passive and active voice!
From Chapter 18: Exercise 3...a fun review of commonly confused words
