Timberdoodle's review Learn more
Many of you pleaded with us to carry an alternative grammar curriculum, one that is complete but not arduous. I admit that because of my own antipathy towards this subject I am probably not the best qualified to evaluate the slew of grammar curricula available to home educators. However, I do know what I like, and I do like this book.

With concise and uncomplicated lessons, it is incredibly simple to implement. It lends itself well to oral or group participation, which is a blessing when you are trying to teach several grade levels at the same time. It does not require gobs of valuable time either to prepare or to implement. Plus it has 50 large antique illustrations that give it a sense of elegance.

For those of you who are impressed by name dropping, this is a revised and expanded edition of First Grammar Lessons by Charlotte Mason. Charlotte Mason is reputed to be a founder of the Home School Movement in the late 1890's. This is a superb program for any child lacking 4th through 8th grade grammar skills.
Simply Grammar is ideal for the homeschool because a broad range of grade levels can benefit from the clarity of this primer (fourth grade up to high school).
Simply Grammar allows you to follow a pace that matches your child's ability. Keeping this in mind it is, in most cases, a several year program where the teacher is free to decide when and how often review is necessary.
Simply Grammar can be used to enhance any other grammar program.

started, but never finished May 31, 2012
Reviewer: blessed4xover  
I started this book with all three of my older kids, but didn't finish with any of them. We have tried to implement Charlotte Mason's methods wherever we could, but this one just didn't fit for us. The vocabulary was kind of hard for a 4th or 5th grader to understand, and I found myself having to "translate" the questions and re-word many things so that my kids could complete the activities. This was working orally; if I asked them to do things on paper, they did not seem to be able to understand what the text was asking them to do, more often than not.
