Category Description for Easy Grammar Ultimate Series:

Now there's finally an answer to the question "What do I use after Easy Grammar Plus?" The Ultimate Series looks like Daily Grams but functions as a continuation to the instruction and mastery found in Easy Grammar. Just like Daily Grams, the course is divided into 180 daily 10 minute lessons but these are teaching lessons as well as review lessons. Each of these lessons provides the familiar capitalization, punctuation and sentence combining exercises. The remaining two exercises per lesson vary. Content includes parts of speech, phrases/clauses, analogies, sentence fragments/run-ons, prefixes/suffixes/roots, dictionary, spelling, simple/compound/complex sentences. In each daily lesson there is instruction associated with at least one of the exercises. Students are to read and discuss the instruction, complete the exercises, and participate in a discussion of the answers. Consistent with mastery learning, concepts are introduced, expanded and reviewed. The Teacher Book includes reproducible student pages with answers in the back. The Student Book is not reproducible and includes only the student pages. The Test Booklet which is reproducible provides one assessment for every 10 lessons. Pages are perforated with answers for each on the facing page to the assessment. In other words, each test page has answers to the following test on the back. ~ Janice




Category Description for Combined Grammar, Usage, Mechanics:

These materials offer a complete and comprehensive coverage of all three elements - grammar (i.e. parts of speech, complete sentences), usage (i.e. homophones, figures of speech, proper word choice to convey meaning), and mechanics (i.e. punctuation, capitalization).

We have loved the ease of use with this program BUT also the quality of the lessons. They are learning so much, with much less "busy work".

My son LOVES Easy Grammar. He has a hard time focusing for too long and I found these ideal for him. He actually asked to continue with this series and he is NOT a child who likes schoolwork. It covers everything for Grammar and repeats topics throughout so he can't just learn it and forget it.
Tammy S on Jun 15, 2018
We've covered plenty of grammar. Just looking for review to keep those skills fresh.
Brynn R on May 30, 2018
Great price! (we've been using easy grammar for years)

Purchasing on suggestion after live chat with RR representative.
Michelle O on Jun 20, 2017
My soon to be 8th grader has a strong grammar foundation thanks to BJU English grades 2-6 (not writing component) and now we just need to reinforce this skill without as much repetition.
Michael O on Jun 14, 2017
It is an easy, painless way to teach grammar and to reinforce what they have already learned.
Julie R on Dec 29, 2016
I bought this because I have two children doing Grammar at the same time.
Kari C on Oct 25, 2016
Good grammar curriculum

We have used Easy Grammar before and loved it.

Easy way to reinforce practical usage!
Cary S on Aug 12, 2016
I'm using this with my 9th grader who has had no previous formal grammar instruction. He is an avid reader, so all the concepts are in his brain, he just needed to put the formal names to them. This is working well, and I like that it's in small 10-minute lessons. After working together on the first few lessons, my son completes these on his own. I just check his quizzes and tests. My only complaint is some concepts are introduced without any explanation and this can be frustrating.

Linda M on Jul 22, 2019
Is the teacher edition necessary?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The teachers manual has both the answer key and the blank workbook pages. The student workbook only has the blank workbook pages. If you're amazing at grammar & have the time to figure it out & grade it yourself, you could get by with only the student workbook. Personally, I would recommend getting the teachers manual though. :)
Can you start with 180 daily teaching lessons 8 without using Easy Grammer Plusif your child has had former grammar with another book?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
Are each lesson one page in total?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The book is divided up into 180 days. Each day is one page. 8th through 12th grade is divided up this way.

To the Point
My son was strapped with his old grammar so much so, that he was still in the 6th grade book just because he couldn't get it all done. Don't get me wrong. It was a great book, but there was just too much work. It was endless. So, the lady that does his assessment recommended this book instead. She agreed that his old one was just too much. This book is to the point with each lesson. He is right on track now!

Easy Grammar Ultimate grade 8 has been a boon for my family Coming into Junior High my daughter had a firm grammatical foundation However I certainly didn't want her forgetting all the grammar that she had already learned Yet many traditional programs were simply too time consuming and expensive for what I considered mostly review Enter Easy Grammar UltimateIn less than 20 minutes a day my daughter reviews the concepts of grammar she has already been exposed to; also the curriculum keeps them fresh in her mind with regular review If you have a learner who struggles with grammar I think this curriculum would be quite helpful as well Topics like capitalization and punctuation are covered thoroughly along with phrases and clauses One thing I really like about this program is that the student is taught prepositions in the first week One needs to memorize (or at least be able to recognize) prepositions Later the student is advised to cross out prepositional phrases; this practice is invaluable to a student when he is learning to identify and label various parts of sentences and parts of speech as prepositional phrases can be confusing when picking apart a sentenceThe lessons are very clear and to the point They are written directly to the student and would not require much teaching as a general rule This is an ideal program for an independent worker The books are not in color nor hardbound; However they are an excellent value in my opinion They binding and cover is more sturdy than the typical paperback book The teacher edition has everything you need for the year's grammar; it includes the student text pages and they are reproducible for home use However considering the cost of photocopying unless one has access to a personal copy machine I found it more economical to simply purchase a student text The answers are included in the back of the teacher's book as are some teaching tips However there are no lesson by lesson instructions solely for the teacherEach daily lesson has 5 parts The first part is capitalization the second is punctuation The third and fourth are grammatical concepts The last part is always sentence combining intended to help students edit their own writing to make it more concise The sample sentences and practice exercises are very interesting and instructive A person can learn some interesting things simply while doing ones grammar exercises Some sentences mention topics like history geography literature and health One thing that is important to realize however is that while Easy Grammar Ultimate will give your student a firm foundation and the tools he might need for excellent composition no composition exercises are included in this book One must give one's student independent writing exercises or use an additional composition curriculum After all to become a proficient writer it requires more than the knowledge of mechanicsit requires practice Easy Grammar Ultimate will definitely give your students a solid grasp of Grammar mechanics
