I used this for my own children when homeschooling them many years ago. I am now using it with an adult who got lost in grammar during her own schooling. This is a secular product, but morally acceptable. I like the approach of starting with prepositions and prepositional phrases as a means of finding the subject and main verb. I wish it used diagramming. I think it would also be better if it had some review of subjects and predicates before introducing more complicated sentences.
We have used Easy Grammar books for many years, and they are fabulous! Lessons are quick and to the point. Everything your child needs to know is covered. If you want a no-hassle way for your child to learn grammar, look no further.
Tried NOT to buy the workbook, but it just is worth it!

My kids all did easy grammar last year and really learned so much, it was amazing. I didn't feel the need to reteach them the same material, so decided to get the daily grams for daily review. Then I decided that was not sufficient on its own. So I purchased the teacher book and the tests. We are not going to go through everything in the book, so I thought I could get away without buying 2 student books also, but it is just a real hassle to print out of the teacher book, mostly because it is not spiral bound. These workbooks are really good and at a very good price, so I told the kids we would just go ahead and get them. They said, "hey we can do the skipped pages as a review over the summer." So there you go :-) can't argue that!
This series is really easy to use, and I was NOT a good English student myself so I too have learned so much as I lead my kids through the book.
I am using this book with a 5th grader and 6th grader. Each level book is very similar, so I do recommend putting kids of different levels in the same book if they are not too far apart in grade level.
Wish we had found Easy Grammar sooner! Love it! It DOES make the process of studying grammar much easier. My daughter has always had a hard time in this subject. Now she is understanding what we are doing.
