From Michael Clay Thompson’s website:
Grammar Island, Grammar Town and Grammar Voyage by Michael Clay Thompson provide a comprehensible yet sophisticated introduction to grammar for the elementary grades. They ignore the low limits traditional at this level and include content often withheld until middle school or even high school.
Grammar Island introduces, in very simple fashion, the full four-level grammar of (1) parts of speech, (2) parts of sentences, (3) phrases, and (4) clauses. Using color to reinforce the lessons, the book offers grammar in child-friendly ways, with an array of strategies to make sophisticated material alive and fun. Grammar Town and Grammar Voyage build on the concepts of Grammar Island
Each page focuses on a single concept, and the teaching approach is to read together with kids, talk about the concepts, ask questions, refer back, and respond to questions before venturing further.
