Teaching Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling through Drama contains 70 clearly described and ready-to-use movement and drama activities, covering each of the rules that Key Stage 2 pupils are expected to know and use in the Year 6 SATs.
All children need to learn the rules of spelling, punctuation and grammar – but these rules don't have to be learned while sitting at a desk.
For Key Stage 2 teachers who are tired of worksheets, exercises and reading schemes, Teaching Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling through Drama offers a new approach to teaching literacy, through movement, speech and drama.
There are over 70 clearly described and ready-to-use movement and drama activities enable pupils to gain a firm understanding of language through innovative movement, speech and drama activities.
Through acting out parts of speech, letter strings and punctuation, children will internalize the language and absorb ideas, skills and understanding. They will be able to draw on this stored knowledge and use it wherever they need it in the future – when they are being tested – but, more importantly, in their own writing.
The combination of visual, aural and kinaesthetic approaches means that the activities will appeal to all learners and can be confidently used with both large and small groups.
A wide range of ability levels, and even mixed ages, may be easily taught together and high achievers may be challenged alongside those receiving extra support.
In addition to literacy understanding, pupils will also develop skills in problem solving, teamwork and social confidence.
