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
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:
#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.
