Even though I ordered the Teacher's book (and it includes the student pages), I am very glad we ordered the student workbook. It saves me from having to try to finagle that very thick Teacher's edition into my copy machine. It is very simple just to assign my son one page per day. As I mentioned in my review of the Teacher's book, this program moves very slowly giving my student many, many opportunities to practice identifying various parts of speech. He has always struggled with grammar, so this has been a great choice for us.
I really like this grammar workbook! My 7th grader has forgotten a lot of basic grammar! This book has been excellent in refreshing her grammar skills as well as helping her to become a better writer! I am very pleased and would definitely recommend this workbook! I just wish there was an answer key as I did not want to purchase the whole teacher's guide book. However, I am able to grade it myself, it just takes a little longer.
Love this book. Yes, it's repetitive BUT this has helped my 3 older kids. The 2 older ones that couldn't get grammar now enjoy doing this book. I will use this with my 4th youngest child. I have used the workbook only and also the combo book which includes the teacher's portion which includes the answers.
I am very pleased with this book for Grammar. My son struggled some with English in school but now is understanding everything a lot clearer. I just wish it was sold in a set with the teachers book. But it is still a great buy.
I hoped I would love this program, but I really don't. I don't care for the order that parts of speech are introduced. If this were my daughter's first exposure to grammar, or if I was not as comfortable with teaching the subject, I don't think that this would have been a good initial introduction to the subject. As it is, since we've covered the parts of speech in the past, using it as a review is working.
