Captain Christopher Moody, based on a real-life pirate, has always longed for adventure. So, when he finds a treasure map, he decides to find a crew, find the treasure and find the greatest adventure the world had ever seen! Meet some weird pirates, a spooky island and a fearsome sea monster in this epic tale.

On his journey, Captain Moody writes the story with the assistance of Blackbeard the pirate and Punctua, the Fairy Godmother of Writing, to punctuate properly and become a bestselling author.

Descriptosaurus Punctuation in Action Year 2: Captain Moody and His Pirate Crew is part of a short series of age-specific, beautifully illustrated stories that can be read for pleasure and/or used as a contextualized resource, containing a step-by-step guide to teaching punctuation. The characters from each story are used to demonstrate a range of punctuation rules in a fun and engaging way appropriate to the book's age group. Areas covered include:

formulating punctuation rules.
the use of misconceptions to highlight common errors.
teaching tips to provide a punctuation model.

The book explores the impact of punctuation on reading, understanding, meaning and effect, and can be used as a basis for pupils' own punctuation or included in their 'Writer's Toolkit.' These new Descriptosaurus stories are an indispensable teaching aid for making punctuation fun for all primary teachers and literacy coordinators.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
