This is the part of a new series from Lawler Education to support teachers of literacy. This important area of teaching and learning is one that often causes teachers, particularly less experienced teachers stress in organising positive learning experiences for students. That is why this set of books are an important contribution to supporting teachers. Made up of a set of lesson plans and worksheets that can be used with students, this book will develop understanding through word level and sentence level work.
