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.

    Great Grammar Curriculum January 12, 2016
    Reviewer: Linda  
    We found this curriculum to be very thorough. My daughter likes that she can take the lead and follow on her own and at her own pace. There are a few lessons that are a bit longer than others and were 2 day lessons but for the most part it is a great plan. We will continue to use this every year and I have already added the next one to my wish list for this year's curriculum

    Very Comprehensive March 3, 2015
    Reviewer: MandyJHoffman  
    My 6th grade daughter struggles in grammar but EG has made it possible for her to do well this year. The repetition that may be boring to an accelerated student is what has helped my daughter learn and retain more than ever before. It is fairly easy to do on a semi-independent level for her and when she has needed me, I've been able to "brush up" as I read and explain the lesson to her. While I appreciate the material, it is not as user friendly as it could be. The teacher's portions are pretty bare bones and sometimes very hard to follow...even for my s.i.l. who was a 5th grade English teacher! However, despite the challenges of it, we have done well. My advice is for the teacher to keep track and read through it too, not just grade it or you could find yourself having to back-track at some point.

    Love this Grammar September 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Heather  
    I used this book as a child and was happy my kids can use it too. This isn't a full language course but it's great for helping kids understand sentence structure. Preposition Bingo is a fun way to help memorize the prepositions. The lesson are so clear and simple!

    It is easy January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Robyn  
    If you are looking for a curriculum with easy teacher instructions, this is NOT it. At first I was very frustrated that there were no clear instructions for the parent on how to teach this, but now I don't worry about it. I just ask my child to read the teaching pages twice in order to understand what is being taught.I do love that the first thing she has to do with each sentence is to cross out the prepositional phrases. That makes life so much easier for her to find the subject.

    Easy Grammar Grade 6 Teacher's Guide June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: mamakven  
    I used Easy Grammar Grade 6 curriculum for my 7th grade son, and it worked nicely.. it was a bit dry and it wasn't his favorite, but i suppose it did the job. I prefer a more self-teaching approach, so i'm not sure if we'll use this in the future, but its certainly a good value. I love how the worksheets are built right in.
