Grammar is not just syntax. It includes all of the following:
• Syntax, i.e. sentence structure, where we distinguish subjects and objects, subordinate and main clauses, and so on.
• Morphology, i.e. word structure, where we recognise roots, suffixes, inflected words, and so on.
• Semantics, i.e. meaning - the things, people, events and so on that we refer to when talking.

3. Reading Stories with Young Children
It should be obvious that reading stories with young children greatly assists their literacy development, yet this often appears to be forgotten in the rush to add still more new activities to the curriculum. Reading Stories With Young Children redresses the balance, focusing on what remains the most important basic requirement for learning.
The book explores the ways in which reading stories with young children can best enhance their literacy skills. The text provides examples of how to enthrall children by reading them stories and provides practical suggestions about follow-up activities that will develop the listeners’ literacy. The extensive examples drawn from home and school will make this book an essential resource. The links into writing, drawing and making, as well as to other curriculum areas are made explicit.
Teachers of young children, teaching assistants and all those who work with young children will find this book invaluable. Parents too will be interested to note how the readings with their own children are subsequently developed in educational settings.

5. Practical Punctuation: Lessons on Rule Making and Rule Breaking in Elementary Writing
Punctuation is important. Period. Good writers know the rules, but skilled punctuators don't simply go by the conventions. They use punctuation to make meaning. Practical Punctuation shows you how to help students discover the relationship between punctuation and meaning - and how they can use it to improve their writing.
Practical Punctuation's strategies help writers connect periods, commas, and dashes to mood, emphasis, and rhythm. Dan Feigelson's ready-to-use lessons provide opportunities to:
• show students the purposes of punctuation before teaching them the rules
• give writers chances to experiment with punctuating
• model the thinking that goes into punctuating
• teach conventions explicitly, but not absolutely
• hold students accountable for punctuation in formal writing.
Feigelson's lessons are highly structured. They demonstrate how to teach punctuation as a craft tool with writers of varying sophistication or age:
• beginners: ending punctuation
• intermediate-stage writers: the comma
• advanced writers: internal punctuation and cadence.
Feigelson includes a handy teacher's reference guide to punctuation as well as grade-by-grade guidelines that make assessing punctuation simpler. And his interviews with world-renowned authors will help you and your writers better understand the power punctuation has to impart meaning.
