Language Fundamentals Revised Edition
Revised in 2016 to align to common core standards, these books will be replacing the previous 2007 edition of the series. Old books had 240 pages, the new edition now has 270 - 272 pages; more practice and review with standards correlations. The same areas of language arts are included - grammar, usage, and mechanics; with the addition of print alphabet practice in first grade. The 'sentence editing' section found in the 2007 edition has been removed. Each page still states a rule, gives an example, and offers practice in the targeted area. Practices include multiple choice, matching, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, circle and underline, and fill-in-the-bubble. The page formats and exercises are basically the same, with new content and graphics. The table of contents is offered in two formats - pages in numerical order with topic and standards correlation listed, and content listed by standards. The first table of contents can be used to work on pages within a specific skills area, the latter allows you to focus on specific standards. Unit reviews are still included and the answer key at the back of the book. These books are still reproducible for classroom or family use.
A week of 'Daily Language Review' is found in the back. The Daily Language Review series is a recommended complement to this series, the sample in the back serves as an introduction that allows you to see if it is a good fit for you before purchasing. Daily Language Reviews are short daily practices of sentence editing.
Use this series (or both together) as a test prep option or just for added practice in the area of language arts. ~ Donna
