Teachers’ Notes Literacy Assignments for the Primary Years contains worksheets which are generally suitable for students in Years 5 and 6, but they can also be completed for the purposes of practice or revision by students in higher grades or given to younger students who are ahead of their peers.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

ew i ev Pr

Teac he r

There are five spelling assignments and five language assignments in this book. Each assignment has been designed to be photocopied and stapled together and used as an individual task which can be completed in class, for homework or be given as extra work for fast finishers. However, you can use the sheets as you wish as they are just as effective as single sheets for classroom activities. For extra writing practice, teachers can ask the students to copy the answered activities into their books instead of just filling in the answers. Dictionaries and atlases should be consulted when needed. The worksheets do get slightly harder as they progress from A to E. The activities focus on developing language basics such as: • using apostrophes • punctuation • plurals • spelling • the present and past tense • homophones • nouns • homonyms • verbs • commonly confusing words • adjectives • suffixes • adverbs • sentence writing • conjunctions • opposites

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons Apostrophes •f r e vi ew pur p s e son y • Apostrophes (’)o arer used when letters are missing, e.g. 'it o is' can be shortened to l it’s; of the

. te

Capital Letters

m . u

w ww

clock can be shortened to o’clock. Apostrophes are also used to show ownership – when something belongs to something or someone, e.g. Chelsea’s book, the horse’s leg, the jar’s lid. Apostrophes are omitted from 'its' when something belongs to it, e.g. Its wheels were dirty from driving through the mud. When the noun that owns the thing is plural and ends in ‘s’, the apostrophe goes after the s’ , e.g. the babies’ cots. When a single noun ends in an ‘s’, the apostrophe goes after the ‘s’, e.g. James’ book, the cactus’ flowers.

o c . che e r o t r s super

Capital letters must be used at the beginning of sentences and for proper nouns which are the names of: - days of the week and special days, e.g. Christmas, Australia Day, etc. - months of the year - people - rivers, oceans, lakes, planets, bays, beaches - places – streets, towns, suburbs, cities, countries, businesses, shops - books, movies, poems, story titles, brand names - titles – Prince, Princess, King, Queen, Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms, Prime Minister, President - acronyms (initials of names that can be used as nouns) e.g. DVD, CD, USA, ATM

Conjunctions Conjunctions are words that join two sentences that are complete by themselves, e.g. I watched the children while they swam in the pool.

Teachers’ Notes

Conversation

When authors write what people are saying to each other in books, it is called conversation. To show that it is a conversation or dialogue, they place speech marks (‘ ’ or “ ”) around the words that are spoken: ‘Hello,’ said Shannon, ‘How are you today?’ There must also be some punctuation – a comma, full stop, exclamation mark or question mark between the words being said and the speaker. Each new speaker begins on a new line. Use capital letters for names and for the first word said each time.

Homonyms

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

Homonyms are words that have two meanings, such as, train. Example: The coach will train the team. The train came noisily around the corner.

ew i ev Pr

Homophones

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings, such as, here and hear. Example: Put it over here. I can hear you.

Nouns, Adjectives, Verbs and Adverbs

A noun is the name of something, e.g. city, cat, pencil, love. A proper noun is the name of a person or place and always starts with a capital letter, e.g. Australia, Matilda, River Murray, The Great Barrier Reef. A verb is a 'doing word', that is, something one can do, e.g. cry, hope, choose, love. An adjective describes or tells us about a noun, e.g. happy, red, large, exciting. Adverbs add to the meaning of a verb: sang (v) loudly (adv) finished (v) completely (adv) never (adv) relaxes (v) disappeared (v) outside (adv). Adverbs tell you: how—loudly, quickly, quietly, fast how much—completely, nearly, almost when—suddenly, tomorrow, soon, now where—outside, inside, there
