I am a big fan of children learning grammar and writing early so that as they get older it is easier to focus on specific writing tasks Last year I used "Daily Grams" and "First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind" with my 2nd grader I really liked both curriculum but my son disliked the Daily Grammar and he was less than thrilled about the First Language Lessons I decided to look for something that might be more appealing to him this year (And less of a fight to get him to do it!) When I stumbled upon "Fix It! Grammar: The Nose Tree " I decided to try it and my son LOVES it! He is a 3rd grader this yearHOW IT WORKS: "The Nose Tree" story is broken down into 1 sentence per day 4 days per week There is always a vocabulary word in the sentence that is bolded The first thing the child does is look the vocabulary word up in the dictionary determine the correct meaning based on the context and write the word and meaning down Then the child finds different parts of speech and grammar in the sentence and labels them This is pretty painless since there are grammar cards that come with the curriculum that I hand him to use He goes through the grammar cards and labels each in the sentence The program starts very simple and the first week you discuss nouns with the child and he/she looks for nouns and puts a n above the nouns The second week adds articles The third week adds pronouns etc Also introduced are paragraph symbols homophones (their there they're) punctuation quotations etc Finally the child copies a final draft of the sentence on an on-going sheet of paper By the time the program is done he/she will have hand-written the whole storyWHAT WE LIKE:My son loves the story He enjoys that each day builds the story and he likes to see what is going to happen next I love that he is learning parts of speech IN CONTEXT I think he will retain the information better I love that he is learning grammar and editing in a very painless way It's also great copy work My son writes a lot neater for this than he does for anything elseTHINGS TO KNOW:It is a fabulous curriculum!There are other books in the Fix It! Grammar series that we will be getting after this one This one is for grades 3-5 and it is recommended that children start with this one and do the others sequentially as the concepts build on each otherIt is very easy to use and requires no prep for me I often have my son do it himself and then just review to make sure he got everything correct The teacher book makes it simple to make sure everything is labeled correctlyAnother thing of note I bought both the teacher book and the student book However all you need is the teacher book and a printer since you can print off the student pages

Best grammar program!
We have tried several popular grammar programs over the years. Most had two faults. First, they were painful for my daughter to execute. She hated grammar. Second, they didn't seem to stick. Fix It Grammar is a joy for our family. Both of my girls reach for it first among their subjects! They are also not only learning grammar but discussing the in's and out's of it on their own. I also love the copy work component. We will be using Fix It Grammar in the years to come!

My kids found this grammar series a refreshing change from the way they had done grammar before while in the public schools. Much more interesting!

Excellent!!!
Both my boys, ages 9 & 13 think it's like a treasure hunt to find the mistakes and mark noun, verb, etc. They don't even think of it as copy work! It's broken down into one sentence a day, which is perfect for my boys. They are learning so much with just doing a little bit every day. Great quality product for doing vocabulary, grammar, spelling all in one! Love it!

I like that this grammar curriculum teaches kids to edit and perform rewrites instead of the usual grammar curricula that has them place marks that are not going to translate later on when editing papers.

All reviews have been good! We've been using Daily Grams for quick grammar review each day, but are switching to this -- my girls like the idea of working through a story instead of random sentences.

This just looks so simple, pleasant and fun but highly educational. A perfect little vitamin of a lesson to mix in with our school day and really lay some solid foundation. We'll be adding Fix It Grammar 1 to FLL and WWE Levels 4

We just read the book and wanted to supplement our grammar lessons.
Kristina H on Mar 6, 2017
Heard many good thing about it.
Lisa W on Mar 5, 2017
It can be used with multiple age/levels and it uses real literature to teach grammar. I still like sentence diagramming for the students to visualize structure, which I can add this to the Fix it curriculum.

Looking forward to teaching the kids grammar in action, rather than through isolated exercises that they may not apply to their own writing.

Fix It! Grammar basics from the ground up. Much simpler to use than the older version that combines all 5 Fix It! books. A great place to start teaching kids how to edit their own work, as well as teaching the basics of grammar while reading a fun story.

Do you need the teacher book to go along with the student book?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would highly recommend it even if you are an English major. They explain why some of the words are not marked, give you more tips, answers, reasons why some words are marked and the vocabulary answer and an advanced student more to do.
We love Fit It! Grammar. I cannot recommend it enough. My 5th grade son, who doesn't really like to write, loves it, and says that verbs, nouns, ect are easy to understand. You can really do it in 15 minutes 4 times a week. Hope this answer helps!
