Preface IMAX partners with schools, supporting them with learning materials and processes that are all crafted to work together as an interconnected system to drive learning. IMAX presents the latest version of the Summit series – specially crafted as an accompanying workbook series for the Maharashtra state board textbooks. The Summit series endeavours to be faithful to the spirit of the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) 2005 in conjunction with the content covered and approach adopted in the Maharashtra state board textbooks. The NCF 2005 asserts: ‘Speech and listening, reading and writing, are all generalised skills, and children’s mastery over them becomes the key factor affecting success at school. In many situations, all of these skills need to be used together.’ The English workbooks and Grammar & Composition books for the Summit series strive hard to provide adequate opportunities for students to practise all the four skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing (LSRW). Below are some salient features of the Summit English workbooks series:  Summaries of the Balbharati English textbook lessons  Inclusion of pictures for word meanings in each lesson to help students with visual clues for new or difficult words for grades 1 & 2  Meanings of difficult words from the lessons provided, along with example sentences for grades 3, 4 & 5  Coverage of all textbook questions, along with adequate space for writing  ‘Quick Check’ questions at the start of every workbook lesson to recapitulate details of the textbook lesson for grades 3, 4 & 5  Inclusion of questions based on comprehension, vocabulary, judgement & appreciation and speaking skills for grades 3, 4 & 5 Here are some salient features of the Summit Grammar & Composition series:  The grammar concepts covered have a horizontal and vertical progression across grades, providing a spiral of cumulative learning  Inclusion of age-appropriate picture reading for grades 1 & 2, and reading comprehension passages for grades 3, 4 & 5  Inclusion of samples for format-based writing to provide for scaffolding of learning of formal writing  Provision of audio pieces for honing listening skills for grades 4 & 5 Overall, the IMAX English Summit series aims to generate greater engagement with the students and enhance fluency in English language communication, while providing them with an opportunity to develop a genuine appreciation of the language and its literature. – The Authors
