Practice Island: Student Book Cover

Practice Island offers 100 four-level analysis practice sentences and is a supplement to Grammar Island and is the first of the elementary-level practice workbooks.

By examining a wide range of sentences, students will experience the satisfaction of a clear understanding of the principles of English sentences.

This useful workbook is meant to be consumable and is therefore offered at a low cost.

You can order any mix of 25 or more practice books for the discounted price of $10.00 each.

Additional iBook Features: The one hundred interactive sentences have separate screens for students to identify the parts of speech, the parts of the sentence, phrases, and clauses. Students tap and drag their answers beneath the word(s) in the sentence. They can then self-check their answers with the check button. There is a review screen after the fourth level to reinforce the answers. Because all the answers are available in the iBook version, no teacher manual is required.
