The teaching method in this product is excellent and the exercises to support the lessons are very well done. I was having significant issues homeschooling 2 children, age 13 and 10, in grammar. This program fit the bill for them. It was lower than where they should have been age-wise but right where they needed to begin. I took the author's suggestions and tried to insert some "fun" things into the program and that also helped a lot. The main thing...the kids are learning grammar! That, after all, was the point of purchasing the product and it worked!!!
Two of my children are using this book, and so far, it's been wonderful. Lessons are short and to the point. Review is done after several lessons to check for mastery. My kids seem to enjoy the simplicity of this grammar curriculum.
I really enjoy this book for our son who was struggling with grammar. My son also likes working through this as well. It seems to be very thorough. We started using the Easy Grammar series with our other kids as well.
Easy Grammar is a GREAT program for teaching grammar. I was hesitant to use it at first because of its emphasis on memorizing prepositions, but I had my kids learn a preposition song that I learned as a student, and then it was pretty easy from there. The only criticism I have with this curriculum is that in the student workbooks, they include the teaching on the same page as the worksheet. So, if the worksheet is torn out, completed, and filed, the concepts are no longer available to review. It would help a lot if all the teaching was on separate pages that stayed in the workbook so the student could look back for review as necessary.
Q: Is there a teacher's manual to use with this? Does this program require a separate teacher's manual? I do not see one linked to this and just wondering what I all needed to buy.
A: There is no separate teacher's manual. The Easy Grammar 4 Text (981437) has the workbook pages included with the answers.
Q: On grade level? Does anyone know if this curriculum is on grade level? I will be homeschooling next year, my son is currently in 3rd in public school. Looking at the samples for Level 4, it seems to be work he has done this year. I don't want to purchase curriculum that is a repeat of what he already knows nor do I want to purchase curriculum that is to advanced.
A: This curriculum reviews the same concepts, with increasing complexity, each year. If your student has not been taught grammar using the prepositional method, it would be best to start with the book for his particular grade level.
