Word Up! Grammar 1-6
Word Up! Spelling 1-6
At Pearson, we believe that grammar and spelling skills are best learned when integrated with other areas of language. Our research in the teaching community has shown us the importance of support and clear content mapping when teaching such fundamental literacy skills.
Word Up! is a flexible, energetic student activity series that promotes listening, speaking, reading and writing through a diverse range of open and closed activities. Each skill is introduced through varied and engaging texts that stimulate critical and imaginative thinking.
Word Up! Grammar demonstrates how grammar features and structures work at a word, sentence and text level. Word Up! Spelling is a structured and sequential spelling program that supports learning about sounds, words and how they are spelled. Each book is anchored to a clear learning scope and sequence.
Structure and Units
Students learn about the varying structures of different types of text. They recognise, for example, sound - letter matches through exciting narratives, learn about onomatopoeia through colourful haikus and learn the art of persuasion through modal verbs and emotive language.
Each Word Up! book contains an annotated unit structure, scope and sequence and 25 units of work. Each Word Up! Grammar book provides a glossary and each Word Up! Spelling book provides a Sound Chart. Improving grammar and spelling results within the context of the Australian Curriculum is now achievable, through integrating one unit of both Grammar and Spelling per week with your current literacy program.
