Category Description for Winston Grammar:

So, you want to include grammar in your studies - but all that diagramming and dissecting of sentences doesn't appeal? How about a more hands-on, participative approach? Winston Grammar is a grammar method using very little writing, no diagramming and is a truly kinesthetic program. Colorful "clue" cards containing the parts of speech (with definitions) are used in lieu of diagramming. These cards are laid out in the same pattern as the sentence; the goal is for students to reach an intuitive understanding of the use of the parts of speech and language structure. As students learn more parts of speech and their functions, additional cards are added. On the back side of the clue cards are instructions showing Winston Grammar marking conventions so you may progress to using these to identify parts of speech in a sentence (ie; underline nouns once, verbs twice, etc.). The regular program is sufficient for 3-4 years of grammar instruction. Since the mastery approach of learning is used, you can start at any age or grade level, but the basic course should be completed before progressing to the advanced program. The advanced program contains a review of the material covered in the basic program, then progresses to more complex grammatical structures. Note that Winston Grammar does not cover punctuation or verb usage, but these are commonly found in other English coursework.

Several supplemental items are also available. The Basic Program Supplementary Workbook contains 30 additional consumable worksheets that provide more practice for students using basic Winston Grammar. Tests and quizzes are included right in the workbook. You may purchase the additional workbook without an answer key or as a set. Winston Word Works is an extension of the Basic program. It teaches proper usage of words that are commonly misused - like lie and lay, who and whom, I and me, etc. - and is meant to be used between the Basic and Advanced Programs. Word Works includes a teacher book, a student workbook and cards.

My kids liked FixIt Grammar okay, but Winston Grammar has been much more engaging. The clue cards keep them active. When they are laying out the cards, they feel more like they are playing a game than diagramming a sentence.

My son completed the basic book and felt like he wanted more practice. My older daughters moved on to the advanced; I’m glad to have this option. This method is absolutely amazing, you will be blown away by how painlessly advanced grammar concepts are learned!

The supplementalry workbook provides extra practice for students to master grammar concepts before moving onto the next lesson. I've noticed my students could use more time to achieve mastery, and the supplement allows us to have that extra practice time.

My child wanted a few more opportunities to practice the newly presented material, so I chose to purchase this to use along side the basic workbook.

Winston Grammar Basic gives a multi-sensory approach that has worked better than diagramming for us. The daily use of the cards have helped with memorization and developing a better understanding of word function within sentences.

More practice to reinforce the basics.

Winston Grammar is one of the best out there for straight grammar learning. It is wonderful for kinesthetic learners. The index cards make it easier for students who are not strong at memorizing. They offer "helps" for students to aid in the work.
