Timberdoodle's Review
Easy Grammar Ultimate
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.

  • 180 daily teaching lessons
  • 10 minute lessons
  • Concepts presented in an easy, step-by-step manner
  • Building-block approach
  • Emphasis is placed on phrases (gerund, infinitive, participal, etc.) and concepts at Grade 8 level

  • 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.

    The Easy Grammar Teacher's Manuals are reproducible for noncommercial student use, and an answer key is included in the back.

    You can order workbooks if you don't want to copy the pages out of the Teacher's Manual. However, we are strong proponents of independent study, so we would recommend that each child receives a Teacher's Manual instead of a student workbook. That way he can read the teaching instructions, do the worksheets, and correct his 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 for you.

    This series contains 180 daily teaching lessons. Each lesson is divided into five parts:
    #1 Capitalization
    #2 Punctuation
    #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.

    My dyslexic son's weakest area. Every day he does one page, we go over it and he fixes all his mistakes. Every day he gets a tiny bit better. I am hopeful by the end of the year that progress will be significant

    I'm happy with this product!

    I bought this product for my student to review some basics before testing and it has been helpful!

    Easy Grammar Ultimate Grade 8 Teacher's Guide

    We have had a love/hate relationship with Easy Grammar through the years as at times it has felt tedious (in years past); this year I feel like he has it down! This is big for him. I see the improvement and the culmination of knowledge in him.

    Can't Beat Easy Grammar

    My students do very well with Easy Grammar. The 8th grade year was no exception. Lessons are small and not overwhelming , while still touching on a few different concepts again and again. I suggest getting the test book that goes with this. I The one thing I did not like about this teacher's guide, unlike the prior year's guides, is the answers are in the back of the book in an answer key. In other years we have used there was student page for photocopying and another page the mirrored it, which was the answer key. I found it annoying to have to flip to the back of the book so frequently. You could purchase this as the workbook and just tear out the answer key, if you wanted to save money and had no plans to reuse the answer key/workbook.

    Grammar made Easy

    Easy Grammar Ultimate is a meaty series, with more grammar than I actually require, but it can't be beat. It is thorough, comprehensive, and doesn't take forever. The daily work is bite-sized, so it fits in with the rest of the school day.
