9 pages

Who It’s For: Teachers, Helpers, & Learners at Novice to Beginning Language & Literacy Proficiency Levels 

Why It’s Useful: Some “secondary” (less vital) Parts of Speech that come up at the very beginning of English-language instruction are Adjectives, Prepositions, and Adverbs.  Along with Nouns—and later, Imperative Verbs, these often appear in segments aimed at these basic language competencies: Describing Things; Making & Answering Requests for Things; Following & Giving Street Directions.   

What You’ll Do: 

[1] Read (aloud) the Thought Balloons of the page 14 Strip Story, “Six Small Cups.” Notice that all its noun phrases include the article a/an, numbers, and/or adjectives useful in “Describing Things.” Use the illustrated Grammar Explanation Boxes and the related Exercises A-B to insure understanding of both the grammar and significance of the language. Use *C to go beyond the text in naming tangible things.

[2] Read (aloud) the Speech Balloons of the page 17 Strip Story, “Give me a box of pencils, please.” Noting that many of the noun phrases include prepositions of location or purpose, in the related Grammar Box and items of Exercises A-B, identify and compare elements of phrases: (a / an) +  (adjective + ) noun + preposition + (a / an / the) +  (adjective + ) noun object.  Use *C for listening, spelling, and writing practice.

[3] Use the page 42 Strip Story, “Go two blocks south on Central Avenue,” for speaking practice and to recognize the elements of full sentences with (subject) + imperative or simple present modal + verb (+ adverb) ( + noun object ) + prepositional phrase.    By completing and checking Exercises A-D, get familiar with sentence patterns that efficiently give street directions. Use Exercise *E to practice asking and giving directions to (familiar) real places in your school or neighborhood.
