written by Trisha Shasken; illustrated by Sara Gray
As teachers, we can attest that teaching contractions can be very challenging ... but If You Were a Contraction can help. With the same funky illustrations as the other books in the series and lots of examples, this is a solid basic introduction.
We are baffled that these books
aren't more well known because they really are great for
teaching! Booklist said,
"Vibrantly colored, full-page illustrations, and a whimsical layout
combine to offer children an accessible introduction to grammar."
Interest Level: Grade 1-3 Lexile Measure: 350L
Below are the first two spreads from inside the book--showing the illustration style and the Language Arts lesson.
