Teaching Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling in Primary Schools

Fourth Edition

February 2023 | 296 pages | Learning Matters
Trainee and beginning teachers often find the teaching of grammar especially challenging.  This popular text provides the subject knowledge you need to teach grammar, punctuation and spelling and explores how to teach it.

Detailed examples of effective lessons show you how to engage children’s interest in some of the more formal aspects of writing. Throughout, activities and practical examples demonstrate how you can translate this learning for the classroom.

This fourth edition has been updated to include new content on developing children's vocabulary. A subject knowledge audit has been added to support you to assess your level of knowledge and confidence and to identify areas for development.  All chapters are now linked to the CCF.
