Take Shape

Take Shape is a stimulating six-level primary series in American English. With a focus on real-world themes and opportunities for students to talk about their own realities and experience, Take Shape introduces language through a variety of content-rich contexts. The series emphasizes the development of the four skills and includes graded writing activities and a program of useful catchphrases to aid fluency. There is also a complete spelling program and integrated picture dictionaries that promote lexical development with a focus on high-frequency words.
