Although I love the Easy Grammar books and have been using them for my older boys for several years, I am not as big a fan of the second grade edition. It starts right in without any explanation and is a little difficult for the beginning of second grade. I will begin again using this book later in second grade using two pages a day to catch up and finish the book by the end of the year.
I really like this book. It's pretty simple and straightforward. For my son that has limited concentration and patience for desk work, these are small manageable chunks that he can do and be done for the day, but that still teach what he needs to know.
This grammar curriculum is just right! I am using it with a rising 4th grader and a 2nd grader. It is simple but effective. It really drills the grammar rules into the child in a easy but not boring way. I recommend this program to anyone looking for a gentle first grammar introduction.
I have used an "all inclusive" language program before I purchased Easy Grammar for my kids. They like it because it breaks grammar into bite size pieces and is easy to follow. Also, it is easy for me to administer because I can have them do roughly one page per day. I then do separate spelling and writing curriculum. This seems to be pretty basic for second grade, but we have just started.
