Zeman, Anne; Kelly, Kate
Intended for fourth- to sixth-grade students and their parents, this book provides information needed to complete language arts assignments. The book was compiled with the help of a service called Dial-A-Teacher, a collaborative program of the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Board of Education, which operates a telephone help-line. The book, which serves as reference guide, offers easy-to-understand answers to questions most frequently asked by students in grades 4, 5, and 6 and a full range of information directly related to the language arts curriculum. The book is arranged in eight subdivided parts; some of the subtopics include: (1) sign and symbol languages; (2) vowel and consonant sounds; (3) prefixes and suffixes; (4) homonyms and homophones; (5) antonyms and synonyms; (6) parts of speech; (7) phrases, clauses, and sentences; (8) outlines and story maps; (9) writing poetry, fiction, plays, and non-fiction; and (10) a list of good books to read, arranged by topic.
