Excellent for my 3rd grader
This was recommended by a friend. So much better than a typical grammar course. They practice everything over and over all year, adding to it slowly. Very very doable. My daughter usually does it in the car while I am running errands, then I come back and check it with her. I love it too. It is so much better than one week on nouns, the next on verbs, etc... as it becomes everyday simple practice. I feel like this can be used with creative people (like my daughter, who natural hates math and grammar rules) better than anything else I've seen. Also, I know of very mathematical logical kids who love it. Definitely continuing this series

Excellent for a reluctant writer
Fix It Grammar is just what my reluctant writer needed to lay a foundation for how to become a writer. Each lesson builds up to the next, and before one knows it, a well written properly punctuated paragraph appears. It has helped us tremendously without frustration from student or teacher!

Best. Grammar. Ever.
We have toiled through grammar for several years with a different program and are thrilled to have found this one! The approach is easy and fun, the story is interesting and uses quality sentences, and best of all my girls no longer dread grammar! I highly recommend this program!!!

My daughter (9) is enjoying doing this. I am finding it an effective way to teach grammar so far. I just wish the vocabulary words were ones that are used more frequently in our speech today.

We are on week 4 of this book. My daughter is ten and was very behind in her understanding of the parts of speech. I am already noticing that she can identify articles and nouns. I like how the cards provide reference for checking herself. I thought that one sentence per day would be too slow, but for my child it is just the right pace.

My child finished all four levels of First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind. I didn't want to dive into another really heavy grammar course, but I wanted something to keep her practicing what she knew. It's been a good fit, she's not losing too much of what she leaned and she's also getting a good dose of vocabulary and copywork.

Do you need the teacher manual with this book?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I found the teacher's manual essential. Yet, if you purchase the teacher's manual you can print the student's manual with a link provided by the publisher. I didn't prefer to print the material so I ordered the student's workbook.
I have a sixth grader and was wondering which book I should start her in. The Nose(book 1) or Robin Hood(Book 2)?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't have a lot of experience with this but I would say either one could be fine. I used The Nose Tree for all three of mine last year (5th, 7th and 9th) because we were completely new to the curriculum and it was also easier to only have one level. Now this year my 3rd grader is doing it. The curriculum is fairly straightforward so I think either one could work.
Is this book reproducible for multiple children or would I need to get a book for each child?
User on Sep 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think if you buy the teacher book, you can get a free digital copy of the student book on the IEW website. Also, the copyright of the student book states that you can copy for use for multiple children within your family/home.
Any thoughts on using this with a variety of ages? I'm considering it for my 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders - but worry it would be too hard for the 3rd grader, too easy for the 7th grader. Are there any modifications for different ages?

BEST ANSWER: I think it would work with the 3rd and 5th grader. I am planning on using it with my 3rd and 4th grader this coming year. I would suggest starting your 7th grader with it but going through it faster. I did this with my 7th and 10th grader doing 2 days per day. If you did this your 7th grader could get through books 1 and 2 in one school year.
I am looking for a grammar curriculum that is not teacher intensive. Would you describe this as so? Any suggestions?
Sarah S on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not really consider this curriculum teacher intensive because they have everything scripted in the teacher manual. Every sentences is labeled in the manual plus helpful tips, but it does require you to look over their work and make sure everything is correct. This is a building grammar curriculum. They introduce one new concept and work on it for two weeks before adding a new one. It really does take 15-20 minutes a day. My boys love it because its not overwhelming yet really teaches grammar in detail. I also really like because it has vocabulary and writing. The other one you might want to consider to go with Fix IT Grammar, is IEW's Writing Intensive. This is a writing/grammar curriculum that is on DVD. Andrew Pudewa is the teacher and really explains how grammar and writing work together. If you student does NOT like to write, this is a great curriculum. There are videos on YouTube that are very helpful and explain Fix It Grammar and Writing Intensive.
As for another suggestion, you might want to look at Easy Grammar. I have never used but know several people who have and they really like it. I would say , just by looking at it, that Easy Grammar is more basic and Fit It Grammar is more detailed. I picked Fit It because I wanted my children to have detail grammar and writing skills and this make it painless, plus IEW is the best when it comes to grammar and writing. This is our 3rd year using it and we really like. Hope that helps!
I will be starting iew on DVD level a with my kids. I saw this was recommended. Would I start this the same day I start that program? How do you use this together? Every day? Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Fix-It Grammar is a completely separate item and can be started anytime you like, independent from IEW's flagship Structure and Style DVD writing instruction program. The Structure & Style DVD program teaches writing skills and writing style, and Fix-It Grammar teaches grammar. They can be done separately with no problems, but Fix-It Grammar complements the Structure & Style DVD-based course nicely by using a lot of the same terminology (such as "-ly adverbs" and "who-which" clauses). Fix-It Grammar also employs copywork of quality writing, which enhances any writing program. Fix-It Grammar teaches grammar by taking a complete story and having children identify a targeted grammatical element in one sentence per day, four days a week. Each week introduces a new grammar element, while also reviewing all previously learned grammatical concepts to achieve mastery. Each day students label the parts of grammar in the day's sentence from the story, look up a vocabulary word per sentence in a dictionary, and then copy the completed sentence in a notebook. By the end of the course, they've copied the entire story. My kids like it because they're eager to do the next sentence to find out what will happen in the story.
