Timberdoodle's Review
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
  • Writing section "teaches" how to write appositives, semicolon, construction, compound sentences, subordinate clauses, and participial phrases
  • Includes pre/post assessments
  • Reproducible worksheets

    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.

    Going to level up next year

    We had a fun time learning English grammar together. There was a lot of useful information for both parent and student and I did enjoy how the book was put together.

    My son really likes the format and he can do his work almost all on his own.

    I absolutely love this grammar curriculum. It is very straightforward and easy for the student. I love how it goes back and builds upon itself year after year.

    The first week or so it was a little hard to get the hang of it. Different from other grammar books we have used. Now it is very easy and he really seems to understand concepts that have been a struggle in the past.

    I love this book. My son not so much. Only because he is not a grammar kind of guy. But this is a great book that helps him memorize rules. You learn a rule and then they add another, and then reinforce the first rule and so on.
