Easy Grammar texts use the prepositional approach combined with effective strategies. This helps students to understand grammar, a tool for speaking and writing properly.

Students are asked to delete prepositional phrases in order to help understand other concepts. In addition to grammar concepts, capitalization, punctuation, sentence types, phrases/clauses and friendly/business letters are included. Ample practice worksheets are offered for each skill.

  • 53 prepositions introduced
  • Materials presented and reviewed throughout
  • Contains unit reviews, unit tests, cumulative reviews, and cumulative tests
  • Includes pre/post assessments
  • Reproducible worksheets
  • Writing section "teaches" how to write appositives, semicolon construction, and compound sentences

    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.

    Great Little Hints

    Not only does it break it down easily for you to teach, but it gives you little hints and warnings. For example it might tell you if a lesson is a little harder than normal and to do it together out loud. I love these hints so that I can prepare for how I am going to handle the lesson with my child, prior to teaching it.

    Easy Grammar Grade 5 Teacher's Guide

    This book really dissects grammar and gets down to the nuts and bolts of building sentences and the responsibility of each word in a phrase.

    Great book

    I love the teachers guide it helps me to teach my son in a very easy to understand way! Plus if you decide not to order the workbook you can print right from the book. It's a great product!

    Easy as the Name Implies

    My three oldest children have used or are currently using Easy Grammar. They don't complain about doing grammar with Easy Grammar. The assignments are short and the instructions are simple. After marking out all the prepositional phrases, it's easy to find the nouns, verbs, subjects, etc. It just makes sense!
