I'm Liisa from an Israeli development town in the middle of the Negev desert. English is hard both for Hebrew and Arabic speaking children as well as adults in Israel. I teach adults on a university level and the hardship is still visible even there.
My hometown doesn't attract ambitious English teachers and sometimes I find our school children - my 11-year old daughter among them - lagging behind the level of more privileged children in other parts of the country.
As we are soon celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles I decided to put my days off in a creative use with this great site and get to the basics: parts of speech.
This is the first worksheet introducing some common adjectives. Parents and teachers, please, model right pronunciation and emphasize that language is not just words. Words combined correctly and thoughtfully form phrases, sentences, paragraphs, stories (written or oral), books and speeches.
The amount and number of adjectives will increase in each exercise.
Have a wonderful beginning of the school year and let's meet in sharing!
Hi, I'm Liisa. Small development towns like mine don't attract ambitious primary school teachers. Although my daughter is in the 6th grade she hardly knows English. I decided to support her and get to the basics: parts of speech.I hope you'll be able to use my materials. More to come...and other students like her.
