Editor In Chief Beginning 1 Grades 2-3
Grammar and Punctuation Practice
Editor in Chief improves your child's grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail using a standards-based thinking approach rather than drill and practice. This effective method teaches students to carefully analyze and edit stories that contain errors in writing mechanics and story details.
The stories involve mixed-skills practice, starting with easier errors and becoming more challenging as students become adept at the editing process.
Students identify and circle errors in each story. They then insert, modify, or delete punctuation, words, and short phrases to make corrections. An editing checklist and annotated guide to grammar, usage, and punctuation are provided to help focus students' thinking and allow them to match their answers to applicable rules.

These books are great for practicing your grammar, punctuation, and spelling. They make a nice change from the regular language arts workbook, and reinforce what's learned there. My daughter enjoys doing them from time to time.
I have 4 different kids doing Editor-In-Chief at their own levels. Great for practice and review. It doesn't take long. Stories are engaging. Just 1 a week. Answers and instructional guide in the back.
