Repeat material!
We used this resource set for fifth grade and we’re fine with it. I liked that my student could read the lesson and do the assignment without me, except for help and further explanation. Lots of review, lots of practice, and it builds nicely.

I’ve just opened our new sixth grade set, and it looks to be similar, though I’m concerned that it will be a close repeat of last year’s work; I haven’t looked much yet. However, I have looked at the writing book and am very frustrated to find that the writing book (which, don’t get me wrong, is fine, a good start anyway) is almost EXACTLY the same as the fifth grade book. There are maybe two or three different lessons and a few are in a different order, but it doesn’t build on the previous year; the lessons to be read are exactly the same and only the examples are different (though very similar).

I didn’t read any reviews this time around knowing it was good for us last year, so I might not have known this anyway, but I do think it should probably be noted somewhere. Yet the materials are packaged together, so you don’t buy separate items; the one book could literally be used twice, with topics selected to do later or multiple times. (Yes, these are exercises that can/should be done multiple times, but the student’s study should build, not just repeat.)

The writing book should be sold separately with notes how to use for different levels. For me to spend $62 on a resource to have basically two copies with only minor differences (maybe three lessons) is a major disappointment.

Like these books
I like the way these books are set up. Dictation, spelling, vocabulary, grammar, journal without too much each day. A little of each on most days. The publisher is great if you have questions and need guidance.

This is our first year using this program It seems to be doing a good job and my daughter doesn't mind it terribly But she is not excited about it either This is not my strongest subject so I need a good strong program for teaching it Saxon is my saving grace for Math so I thought we'd give it a try for Grammar and Writing One thing I really don't like is that you have about three books and a schedule for going through them that got to be complicated We ditched the schedule and just bounce back and forth between the books I'm currently chasing a 2 year old around and need a no-brainer kind of schedule for our lessons Though I'm sure she's getting what she needs she does get bored with it so I'm planning on doing a poetry unit to give her a break from this program for a bit

I found this grammar curriculum at a homeschool convention after not having any formal grammar instruction for my kids I simply would correct their grammar as needed with explanations My oldest child is 9 and has successfully completed the Grammar 5 My next third grader will start it this August I thought that my daughter learned a lot about grammar the text and examples were clear and the price was right! I have not seen the way Saxon is producing the books now - my teacher packet and the student workbook were not bound but were hole punched This allowed me to put the materials in a single binder for use - which I liked This product will lead to mastery of grammar and I believe students will understand the "whys" of grammar not just gain the rote memory of grammar

I needed a grammar program for my homeschooling

Program is incremental. That means there are fewer chances for holes in the information taught and the student will receive ample experience over time for retention. It works.

Appears to be a very thorough and complete set.

We love Saxon Math and the way that it presents and practices material. Can't wait to try out the grammar. Need something logical and methodical. My children all do very well with this format and REMEMBER....
Nancy L on Apr 2, 2018
I have used the 5th grade and 8th grade this school year. I saw my children excel in writing, vocabulary, spelling and grammar. I loved it! It was easy to teach, easy for my children to self-teach, and quick to correct. I purchased the 6th grade for next school year.

I have used Saxon Math as a public school teacher and home school teacher. I absolutely love it and can't wait to try Saxon Grammar and Writing!
Frances M on Feb 8, 2018
The price seems great and the reviews are awesome.
Mary M on Jan 23, 2018
I think Saxon grammar and writing is a very thorough program and love that it reviews past concepts. This is a program leaving homeschooling mothers feel confident about what they are teaching.
Kristen M on Dec 14, 2017
I am purchaseing this because we love the Saxon Math! I have heard nothing but good reviews and this is the only curriculum I have left to get. I can’t wait to try it out. I’m new to homeschooling and like that i can pick my own curriculum. We are going 4 weeks strong now and loveing every moment. Saxon is a wonderful program and I’m learning just as well as my child!
Stacy W on Nov 9, 2017
I chose a Saxon Grammar and Writing program because their math program has been so good for our son. I hope the Saxon style repetition will help him retain the things he needs to learn about grammar and writing. Some of the less traditional programs I have tried have not worked as well as I hoped they would.

lots of review and Mad Libs type activity every few lessons.

This will be our first time to use Grammar & Writing. However, I hear that it is formatted and presented similarly to Saxon Math and this is exactly what I was looking for. My child needs short lessons and constant review. I'm positive this curriculum will meet those needs and we'll have fantastic results.
Michelle W on Mar 22, 2017
We're currently using Shurley English Made Easy workbooks, which have gotten my 4th grader ahead due to repetition of concepts. I don't follow the Shurley method, but modified it. I saw a copy of the Saxon Grammar & liked the short, complete daily lessons. I researched & saw 5 & 6 were similar, so I went with the 6 since she's ahead. I plan to use both systems, but wanted something that required her to begin a more independent learning process - which I hope Saxon Grammar will provide.

best grammar curriculum

Like the math by this publisher and am looking forwarding to trying and having success with this subject
Joanne Q on Nov 3, 2016
Four of my five kiddos use Saxon Math and we love it. So I decided to switch to Saxon Grammar and writing hoping that it's written just as well. We have heard good reviews and are actually really excited to start this new program!

The publisher contacted me personally when I emailed a question. I like the Saxon math and this approach tells the student what to do when and on each day. I like that it includes copy work and that grammar, vocabulary and writing are all taught in a spiral method. I also like that the publisher said to order any reading level that the scope and sequence is very similar for ALL levels.

We started with Saxon Phonics K and have stayed with Saxon every year since. I recommend only Saxon for language learning.
