Easy Grammar Grade 4 Workbook
About Easy Grammar:
Welcome back to an old, but improved, friend. Our three oldest grew up doing Easy Grammar and it is with great memories that we introduced it to the two youngest in the family. 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 memorization of prepositions. This is the first step because once the student can identify and eliminate the prepositional phrases in a sentence, then 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.
By deleting and marking certain words or phases, Easy Grammar employs a virtually "hands on" approach. The vocabulary has been kept simple and, in most cases, the sentences rather short. This very logical, simple, no nonsense grammar program is easy to use because each lesson focuses on just one topic. It is straightforward for the students to understand and provides a logical sequence of language arts skills. Additional strategies and tips that have helped the author's students are also provided. Lots of review helps to ensure comprehensive learning with excellent results.
Each Teacher's Manual has teaching instructions, worksheet pages that can be copied, an answer key that is on each facing page, unit reviews, cumulative reviews, unit tests, and cumulative tests. You can also order workbooks if you don't want to copy the pages out of the Teacher's Manual, but our family has taken an even more miserly approach by using the Teacher's Manual with a piece of opaque construction paper to cover the answers on the facing page. We are strong proponents of independent study, which means each child receives a Teacher's Manual instead of a student workbook. That way they can read the teaching instructions, do the worksheets and correct their own work. This option does not work as well if you have a couple of children who need the same level book. In that case, photocopying the worksheets from the Teacher's Manual or using the workbooks (which may not be photocopied) may be more cost effective. Note: Workbooks contain worksheets and instruction sheets found in the teacher text. Teacher Guides include that along with unit reviews, unit tests, cumulative reviews, and cumulative tests answer keys and teaching strategies.

I’m relieved to find a easier way to teach and learn grammar. My son is delayed and I am not fantastic at LA. However, this has really simplified the way to understand grammar.
We really enjoy having the workbook to go with the teacher's edition. While you can photocopy each lesson from the teacher's book, my student finds it helpful to have a workbook to write in and keep everything together. I also find it saves money when you consider the costs of photocopying or the costs of ink and paper in a homer printer.
My sone loves to have the workbook because he likes to know how much we have done and how much we have left!
Love having the workbook so that I don't have to copy things of. Makes things easier and my son likes having his own book!
My older children were below grade level in their grammar skills. Working through Easy Grammar has dramatically improved their grades. Learning the prepositions and picking out the phrases first, was a new concept, and a great way to move ahead in their language studies.
