Easy Grammar Ultimate Grade 8 Teacher's Guide
The Easy Grammar Ultimate series is explicitly designed 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.
This series contains 180 daily teaching lessons. Each lesson covers capitalization, punctuation, sentence combining, grammar, and more.
The Easy Grammar Teacher's Manuals are reproducible for non-commercial student use. 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. He can read the teaching instructions, do the worksheets, and correct his own work. This option does not work 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.
About Easy Grammar
Most children dread grammar study because it is too complex. But Easy Grammar is just that, easy.
What sets Easy Grammar apart 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 intimidating, relax. The hardest part will be memorizing the prepositions. After that, everything falls into place.
Easy Grammar employs a virtually "hands-on" approach by deleting and marking certain words or phrases. The vocabulary has been kept simple, and, in most cases, the sentences are relatively short.
