The Editing workbooks introduce students to the rules of spelling, grammar and punctuation in a systematic and structured format. They provides multiple exercises to maximise learning and to ensure retention of the information in long term memory.

Understanding rules of spelling, grammar and punctuation enables students to understand the reason for the mistakes they are making and thereby help them avoid making the same types of errors in the future.

Similar to the other Cracking the ABC Code programs, once a concept is introduced it is then continually included throughout the remainder of the book, providing further opportunities for students to learn and reinforce this knowledge.

Information is presented in two ways: As skill building exercises and editing exercies.  (Click on the images below for more detailed information):

Skill Building Exercise   

Although the books can be used independently, they have been designed to reinforce the phonic knowledge taught in the Cracking the ABC Code Multisensory Reading programs and the exercises include the vocabulary introduced in these programs.

Answers are provided for all activities.
