LFL Spellings, Homophones & Parts of Speech - Yr 4
Spellings, Homophones & Parts of Speech covers the term-by-term requirements of the National Literacy Strategy for Year 4. The same logical format is used to teach the sound families, thereby continuing to develop and reinforce skills already required, while at the same time introducing new exercises to further those skills.
Dictionary work is continued and exercises are provided to encourage children to search for unknown words, not only helping to widen their vocabulary, but also their general knowledge.
The rules for adding prefixes, suffixes and plurals are explained. Also included are simple parts of speech (ie. nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs). Short stories are included to practice punctuation and sound differentiation. They can also be used as a dictation exercises or as individual/shared reading.
