How to Use the Books

As learning is based on the principles of repetition, the book must be used daily without fail and not once in a week times five sentences. Spend no more than 10 -12 minutes daily. No writing must be done unless the child is simultaneously taking notes on the textbook. Do not ask each child to answer. Be time efficient. Mark the punctuation and parsing in under 3 minutes. Ask questions given quickly, supply at least 2 new words and put these on your word wall. Spend time doing pair work and chanting. Do question chanting also. Record oral sentences on whats app groups, so that parents and children can practice these orally every day.

Children are doing vocabulary, oral work and manipulation exercises simultaneously. Teachers must insist they use these in writing tasks and reflect them in the rubrics.
