No need both Teacher Guide & Workbook
July 12, 2013
I just received these in the mail and was excited to open it up and get my hands on it. Well, if you purchase the Daily Guided Teaching & Review it has all the Student Workbook pages in it that can be reproduced. So, unless you just don't want to photocopy the student pages within the teacher guide, I wouldn't spend the money on the workbook.
Also, the teacher guide only has a few notes regarding lessons, not a whole lot to go on, but notes each lesson and what you should be reinforcing. However it does have an answer guide in the back.
If you know grammar well, I'd recommend just getting the workbook, it's cheaper and self-explanatory, and if your child didn't understand it you could easily explain the grammar rule.
All in all, I'd only spend my money on ONE book, either the Teacher Guide or the Workbook, NOT BOTH!
Wow, I wanted something simple for my son - however they did not put lines at every number to rewrite the sentence - this was frustrating for him. It is supposed to be rote work and but it simplistic to the point of not worth our time. We went back to FLL and find it much more enriching. Now I"m stuck with a $20 book I can't even return. Don't spend your money on this!
The description says: Workbook pages with answers overlaid face reproducible workbook pages for students to complete. (NOT TRUE - NO PAGES WITH ANSWERS OVERLAID, ALL ANSWERS ARE IN BACK) "To the teacher" notes address areas of importance and teaching tips. (THE 'TO THE TEACHER NOTES' ARE LESS THAN 2 1/2 PAGES IN THE WHOLE BOOK OF VERY BASIC POINTERS) A writing section is also included (NO WRITING SECTION. EACH EXERCISE REQUIRES MINIMAL COPY WORK). Workbook to teacher's text correlations are noted in the back. Tests included (NO TESTS AT ALL!!!). 180 lessons, indexed, softcover. Grade 2. Reproducible pages.
This is NOT a teaching text. The instructions for each lesson for the student are less than minimal. The teacher information is next to non-existent.
We home school and I purchased this as a grammar program for my second grade boys. It seems to be a solid program, the worksheets are quick to do and it covers a number of basics. I feel that it might be too easy, not going as "in depth" as I would like, but I suppose that is the point. If you are looking to get grammar basics in a quick, easy to use, self directed (type) format this program might be for you.
