Parallel structure in English Language writing helps writers to save words and to avoid sound repetitive. It is very useful when someone is writing a list or a series of words from the same class; verbs, adverbs or adjectives, for instance.
In any case, the writer starts the sentence as if it were a simple one, then he writes a comma and the following words separated by the necessary commas.
It is easy and useful, isn’t it? But, what happens when you have this structure for 3rd graders in the beginning level of English Language?
Is it right to use the parallel structure when you are teaching to 3rd graders the uses of “want”, “need” & “wish”?
I would rather not using it, at least not in the first and only lesson & activity about it.
