About this series:
Creative English is a series of English Language texts designed for Caribbean Primary Schools.
The main objectives are:
- to develop skills in the use of language, both oral and written.
- to develop students powers of imagination, judgement and insight.
- to stimulate and encourage reading for pleasure and understanding.
Each book consists of between 18-24 Units featuring reading of prose and verse for understanding and appreciation, vocabulary usage, spelling activities, grammatical structures and creative writing. Its wise use will depend on teacher’s willingness to adapt and modify, using initiative and insight.
The extracts selected, both prose and verse, are appropriate to childrens’ interests, experiences and the challenges they offer to their intelligence and insights.
Oral activities focusing on picture illustrations and comprehension pieces precede a range of written practice.
