ESL/ESD learners need an explicit, methodical and planned language program that can be integrated into their class work in all key learning areas. It is important for the teacher to establish a supportive classroom environment where the student’s first language and culture are valued.

The teacher’s gestures gesture gestur and facial expressions plus visu visual clues (photos, pictures, objects, etc) will help the student make meaning. Regular and positive feedback from the teacher will consolidate the student’s sense of achievement and encourage the student’s self confidence.

Easy Punctuation (Book 4) builds on the thematic vocabulary introduced in Easy Words (Book 1) and uses examples from the stories in Easy Read and Write (Book 2) and More Easy Read and Write (Book 3). Each double page features a punctuation topic and activities based on that topic to provide easy reference for the student and to build the student’s confidence and skills.
