About Daily Grammar Practice

The primary Daily Grammar Practice Series in its entirety is comprised of a set of books for Grades 1-5, and two options for Grades 6-12. The 1st Edition of Grades 6-12 features basic sentences for a more foundational understanding, while the 2nd Edition option for Grades 6-12 features more challenging sentences from literature.

The teacher's guides includes lists of sentences for student use, which may be copied onto a board for the class and written in individual student notebooks.

The Student Workbooks feature an introduction to the program, reference "help pages," and a separate page for each week's lesson that features the sentences from the teacher's guide. These optional workbooks help busy homeschoolers save time and energy by having lessons pre-written, rather than having students copy them into separate notebooks. Worksheets may be done as a class or individually.

The Daily Grammar Practice Overheads on CD-ROM is a time-saving optional CD-ROM that lets teachers project the week's lessons on the whiteboard (no printing capabilities are included).

In addition to the primary Daily Grammar Practice series described above, there is also the Daily Grammar Practice: Bible Version, in which the weekly sentences consist of Bible verses, Bible facts, and sentences about the Christian life (NKJV, NIV, RSV and NRSV translations are used).

A wide vocabulary is critical for good reading comprehension, higher-level writing skills, and high standardized test placement. Multiple-choice vocabulary lessons often don't give students the skills they need to figure out words in context; however, Vocabulary: An Elementary Approach is a literature-based series that actively engages students in the learning process.

In each book, students begin with 10-20 vocabulary words (taken from the literature) that they're likely to encounter in other contexts. Before reading the book, students take a pretest and record the results in "Word Logs," which require figuring out meanings from context, using a dictionary, and other reading skills. Students will also study the root words, prefixes, and suffixes of each new word. A variety of reinforcement activities are included; students conclude with a post-test.

This workbook is designed be used alongside the book "Stone Fox" by Virginia Hamilton, which is not included and must be obtained separately. Designed for the elementary grades 1-5; these workbooks can be utilized with guided or independent reading.
