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.

This is terrific for my kinesthetic 15-yr-old struggling learner. She enjoys doing this and the hands-on and short lessons aid both in recall and painlessness!

We just finished Grammar Ace. Grammar does not interest my kids or me for that matter. I wanted something more hands on to help keep everyone interested and to aid in our understanding.

I read that this program will take your student through an entire year of grammar instruction. How is this accomplished if there are only 30 worksheets?
A shopper on May 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I had my student do the program once a week. The program goes deep towards the middle of the book and it might even be a good idea to split the ten sentences into two days of work. It is a great program to use especially if you are introducing a foreign language at the same time, that really helped my students grasp the English language even more.
what is in this package? is it only the teacher manual? Item #001519. thank you.
A shopper on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Contains 30 student worksheets, pre- and post-tests, teacher's manual, quiz keys, clue cards and noun-function cards.
Does this Winston Grammar pack include everything I need to use with one student or are there other components I need to buy?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Everything you need for the program is in this packet
Does this teach how to diagram sentences?
A shopper on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. However, it is an excellent resource as a precursor to diagramming. Analytical Grammar is a great resource for diagramming.
What year was this reprinted in?
User on Oct 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My teacher's manual from this package (that was purchased in the summer of 2016) says, "Reprinted in 2015." I hope that helps! :)

Overall great for 6 grader
This is great for me. I need to learn along with my daughter. It’s been easy to explain and teach. The concepts are clearly explained. I sometimes do wish there were more practice activities.

Easy to use
This is easy to use and clear to follow instructions. I bought it because it had the hands-on aspect. The cards do help my children but after a while they stop using them. However, they are really handy when kids get stuck. The lessons are short. I do feel we go through them really quickly so I'll probably have to look into another grammar program down the road. One thing I wish it had was punctuations. They focus on parts of speech but no punctuations. Overall my kids enjoy them. If not for anything else, just the fact my children have no complaints, I'd buy it again!

Winston Grammar
Our 11 year old right brained learner is enjoying Winston Grammar. It is definitely reinforcing basic grammar for her. Each lesson takes 45 plus minutes because of the color coded cards. However, I feel it's worth it.

Easy to Teach
Everything that I needed to start grammar lessons was in the packet. My daughter took to Winston Grammar (Basic Level) pretty easily and is retaining the information very well. Also, I was encouraged when her certified academic language therapist told me that she incorporates Winston Grammar into her program.

Dyslexia and Autism
So far, this is the most effective grammar tool we have used in our home. My oldest son has Autism and Dyslexia. We needed something with a multi-sensory approach, and we have found it! My younger son is using it as well and enjoys it very much.

Best grammar curriculum ever!
I was homeschooled from fourth grade through highschool and my mom tried many, many different grammar curriculums. This was the only one that "worked"! Consequently when I decided to homeschool I knew what I wanted to use for grammar.
I've learned that being the teacher of a curriculum is different than being the student of it. However, I was pleasantly surprised how easy and yes, even fun, it made grammar for us!
Hands down best grammar EVER!

My 8th grader has really struggled with grammar I mean really struggled It just wasn't sinking in A friend suggested we use Winston Grammar After asking the Rainbow consultants we decided to give it a try with our 8th grader and 5th grader The difference is WONDERFUL! Winston Grammar uses color coded cards to identify each part of speech The lessons are straight forward and short Parts of speech are introduced one at a time There is plenty of opportunity for review before new concepts are introduced Teacher preparation is minimal The teacher's manual is very straight forward This has worked really well for teaching the parts of speech in a simple and effective manner
September 13, 2013
I choose Winston Grammar for a more hands on approach that appeals to my active boys The program works well for my 9 year old and 12 year old and we can easily work together through the lessons I teach the lesson from the easy to use teacher's manual and write the sentences on a dry-erase board from the workbook and the boys work together on the sentence I also test them individually to make sure they understand the concept There is a lot of review in the program which is a benefit I like that the levels of this program aren't related to grades so that a struggling student doesn't feel like they are "behind" Each level would work for a range of ages I highly recommend this program to anyone who isn't seeing results with a workbook program or those with active children who would enjoy a hands on approach I'm looking forward to purchasing the other levels of this program

What a refreshing blessing this program has been for us After using many programs with previous children and finding their long term retention so poor I decided to go with a gut feeling that I had and try Winston Grammar This program is much more than meets the eye On the surface it looks almost too simple but using the cards kinisthetically and as clues to learn grammar parts is pure genius to me and I plan on using it with the rest of my children The cards really brought grammar to life for me and my son and the TM gives you instruction on what to teach while keeping it simple and not overwhelming your child I am doing the lessons right alongside of him so that this time around even I get it We do 3-4 sentences a day as the program intended and this has kept us from forgetting what we have learned previously There is constant review as you are labeling parts of speech with each lesson so we did not even need to order the supplementary book but I can see where it would be necessary for a younger child or even as extra review Winston is a definite keeper for us! We are eager to begin Winston Advanced next year Dee in Sunny FL!
