A favorite
I have homeschooled all five or my sons, and I personally believe that using the same grammar program year after year can be tedious. Therefore, I switch between three of my favorites every three years, and Easy Grammar has been on that list from the beginning. I highly recommend that you consider this program for a year during the late middle-school or high school years.

I found out about GP on a homeschool video summit that included Rainbow Resource. I took my notes and did some research.
My student was only grasping minimal grammar. He was about to start high school and that means crunch time. I bought GP as a last resort, and I'm so glad I did.
I bought the workbook and the big teacher book that has one page of answers, and the next page of the student book. (copy pages?) I like having both so we can go over it together when he isn't comprehending something. I see the answers and his page while he can keep his workbook.
Personally, I can't tell you what is different about this book and how it works when others didn't. All that matters is that it is working and even better, it's now becoming fun.

It Really Is Easy Grammar
We have used Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and Plus. A couple of times I switched to a different curriculum because I thought maybe it was too easy, but discovered the others don't explain well and are too difficult. We have always gone back to this and really like it.

Great workbook.
I am not a fan of copying pages. I think that by the time you copy, punch holes and organize the pages you have spent more time and money than buying the student workbook. I would strongly recommend this workbook to go with Easy Grammar book.

We had tried several grammar programs for my middle/junior high school-aged children and were not completely happy with any of them until we found Easy Grammar The no-nonsense no-frills approach beginning with preposition elimination along with pages of repetition (practice)of each rule helped the whole concept of grammar finally make sense to my children Easy Grammar is a must-have on any homeschool shelf--either as part of main curriculum or as supplement We have used it both ways and have been very happy with the results each time!

I have used this program with all of my childrenEasy Grammar works for gifted students dyslexic students "average" students and completely-ambivalent-toward-the- grammar-of-my-native-language studentsWe follow completion of Easy Grammar Plus with The Stewart English Program There is absolutely no way my dyslexic child could have completed Stewart without the strong foundation he got in Easy GrammarI realize that it isn't all about the test but when you're trying to get a homeschooled student into college it's all about the test So far perfect scores on the language arts sections of the ACT They attribute it to the English program I "force" them to do My dyslexic son came home from the test and said "Thank you so much for making me do that Easy Grammar Plus book 3 times" I should quantify that - repetition works for him Now about complaints about Easy Grammar It is exactly what it says it is - a grammar program To round out an English curriculum you will still need spelling/vocabulary (usually a separate subject anyway) a literature component (often a separate subject) and a writing component Easy Grammar does not teach writing beyond emphasis on the proper grammar and punctuation of a sentence We've tried Easy Writing and found it not at all helpful Easy Grammar did such an adequate job teaching my children how sentences should be structured that a sentence study was a waste of time For our purposes we have found the Spectrum Writing series the Igniting Your Writing Series and Jensen Format Writing to be excellent companions for Easy Grammar Spectrum and Igniting used in an interwoven fashion followed by JensenWhy do we follow Easy Grammar with The Stewart English Program? Easy Grammar maintains the same format throughout each book which is wonderful in helping solidify concepts and relate to earlier learning but there is only the lowest level of analysis happening in Easy Grammar There is absolutely no evaluation or creation Stewart raises the bar on analysis by using more complex sentence structures moves into evaluation by requiring the student to find examples in literature and then prove their assertion about the selections and finally to create both simple (high school reading level) and complex (college reading level) examples of the grammatical skill being covered Please keep in mind that many freshman and sophomore college texts are not written on a college level but most non-general studies texts are Meaning that students who test out of freshman level studies will need exposure to higher level reading; and grammar is an excellent reading comprehension booster This makes Stewart a great college prep course but you have to be ready for that first Stewart does not provide a foundation in grammar assuming the student already has this skill which Easy Grammar provides

I have used this with my 3 older children and it has been a useful way to teach grammar. So I order it now for number 4. Simple and easy and do-able level of grammar for our family.
Kathleen J on Sep 13, 2018
I read that the student pages are in the teacher's manual, and while that is true, the pages in the teacher's manual are not perforated, and the answer sheet mirrors the worksheet. Also, there is either teaching content or an answer key on the back of a worksheet. I don't have a photocopier in my home, and it would cost me more to photocopy the pages for my student vs. buying another workbook.

I have used this with both of my kids and it is AMAZING! It seems almost too "simple" to teach grammar thoroughly but it does the trick. Tried other programs (MANY of them) thinking this wasn't rigorous enough but it was the easiest explanation and they "got it." Every other program I tried made it SO more complicated than it needs to be. And this doesn't take any time to complete in a school day.

It looks like it would be just as cost effective to pay for the workbook as to make copies of the worksheets in the Teacher's book. It will save me time as well.

Dawn J on Jul 18, 2018
Love. love. love. easy grammar. small step by step lessons with plenty of review. may be wise to start with the capitalization and punctuation lessons in the first part of the year, instead of at the end, like they have those lessons placed in the book. Easy for the student to do independently, if they can read the lesson themselves. Easy to check for the parent.

This is my go-to resource for my 6th and 7th graders who have had no or little grammar. It starts at the beginning and helps kids get learn most of the grammar they need throughout high school and beyond.
Amy H on Nov 8, 2017
We used Easy Grammar Grade 4 and Easy Grammar Grade 5. The program works well for us and eliminating the prepositional phrase simplifies things. Wanted to stay with Easy Grammar. There's enough repetition that using 2 Easy Grammars back-to-back, I think that Easy Grammar Grade 6 will be too easy. So we are going to skip to Easy Grammar Plus. After Easy Grammar Plus, might continue to use the Easy Grammar Ultimate.

Does this grammar book teach diagramming sentences?
User on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, Eatsy Grammar does not teach diagramming sentences, HOWEVER, this curriculum series does an AWESOME job of teaching mechanics and grammar. I only wish I had found out about it sooner! I don't know anyone who would not LOVE using the Easy Grammar series for their Language Arts curriculum. It's well done, very affordable and highly effective....I give it 2 thumbs up!!!
Does the easy grammar + workbook include the teaching sections or do I need to buy the teachers plus as well?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Easy Grammar Plus workbook does not have the answers or teaching prompts. It has a few instructional pages and lists scattered through the lessons for the student to reference. I never used the teacher's manual because I am strong in grammar skills and it was just as easy to read through the student's answers on my own. However, if you need or would prefer to have the answer key and/or prepared lesson notes, you will need a teacher manual.
Can it be used by high schoolers in 9th grade?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a good addition to English 1 for students who need a little more help. It explains things more than the Ultimate Series as that is mostly for review from my experience. Hope this helps!
How long does this curriculum require on a daily basis?
A shopper on May 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are just using the Easy Grammar Student Workbook, it takes about 5-15 minutes a day, depending on the lesson. If you add Daily Grams, that takes less than 5 more minutes as it's only one page per day. The lessons in Easy Grammar aren't distinctly marked, so it takes some getting used to at first, but it is well worth the effort. For example, the pages are clearly marked VERBS in the upper corners - you just need to pay attention to the subcategory underneath that (Verb Tenses) and decide how many pages for that lesson. it is usually 2-5 pages per subject.
What is the difference between easy grammar and easy grammar plus?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After Easy Grammar 6, Easy Grammar Plus is next in sequence. I use it for 7th grade with my students. After Plus, the Easy Grammar books for 8th grade & up change format (less teaching, just single-page daily review exercises.)
Does this book contain the answers?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The student workbook does not contain answers. If you want the answers, buy the teacher's version which contains both the student pages and answers together. I purchased both the teacher's version and the student workbook. If you purchase only the teacher's version, but you have to copy each page for the student.
