    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.

    Grammar I Can Stand! May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Pam from MA  
    I wish this had been around when I was kid, diagramming sentences. I hated that! When was I going to use it ! With this book, you learn 50 prepositions first and then learn how to take out prepositional phrases. Which also means you can then add them back in! It is very workbook, but the lessons are well presented and easy to understand - even for a 6th grader. I learned a lot going through this with my kids, like when it should be "he and I" vs "him and me", etc. I would definitely encourage purchase of the student workbook because copying all the student pages is a pain.

    The name says it all....Easy Grammar Plus! October 26, 2011
    Reviewer: Pamela George from , Lake Worth FL  
    I am a home school mom of two children ages 12 and 13. This is my second year home schooling and I wanted a core curriculum this year. We absolutely love the Easy Grammar Plus! The instructions are easy and straight to the point. I only wish I was taught grammar like this when I was in school! Our experience with the amount of time we are spending learning a new concept and doing the work is minimal which makes us all very happy! I highly recommend this product for grammar for home schoolers.

    Great college prep! October 20, 2008
    Reviewer: Teresa B. from Gilbert, AZ  
    Really makes teaching and learning simple. Wish I would have been taught this when I was in school. My older kids did really well on college exams because of the way this foundation is taught.
