Easy Grammar Ultimate Grade 8 Student Workbook
Most children dread grammar study because it is too complex. But Easy Grammar is just that, easy.
What sets Easy Grammar apart from other grammar programs is the key role prepositions play. Once your child can identify and eliminate the prepositional phrases in a sentence, determining the subject, verb, and other parts of speech is much easier. If you lack an adequate grammar background and find even the preceding sentence to be intimidating, relax. The hardest part will be memorizing the prepositions. After that, everything falls into place.
Essential Concepts in Just 10-15 Minutes a Day
The new Easy Grammar Ultimate series is designed specifically to introduce and teach essential grammar concepts to older students, regardless of their previous grammar background. In just ten to fifteen minutes a day, your child will be functioning at his grade level and be competent to undertake any state or college prep tests. As a bonus, as your child practices his grammar skills, he will also be learning age-appropriate history, science, literature, geography, and so much more.
This series contains 180 daily teaching lessons. Each lesson is divided into five parts:
#3 and #4 Grammar and Other Concepts
#5 Sentence Combining (with an emphasis on expository [informational] writing)
Though it is not required, most customers complete Easy Grammar Plus before they begin the Easy Grammar Ultimate series.

I really like this grammar. I usually dread having to do grammar, but this grammar program makes it so much easier. It's short & covers several things all in 1 worksheet each day. Now I don't dread grammar anymore!
We love the entire Easy Grammar series. Our students respond to it well and remember the lessons they are taught. The setup of the 8th grade year is basically a short self-directed lesson each day. The student completes a lesson reviewing several grammar concepts. I suggest getting the test booklet that goes with this for regular testing of information.
