Q. What is the difference between Easy Grammar texts and Easy Grammar Ultimate Series texts? A. Easy Grammar texts include Grades 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and Plus. Grades 2-6 are for elementary students. Concepts are taught within sequential grammar units, beginning with prepositions. Using this approach, sentences are stripped to basics, enabling students to understand subject and verb and to build throughout each text.

EG Plus will give any student beyond Grade 6 a solid, basic understanding of grammar. It's especially popular because the text is written at a fourth-grade reading level. Therefore, students can focus on concepts. Like the other Easy Grammar texts, concepts are taught within sequential grammar units. Using a prepositional approach, sentences are stripped to basics for students to identify subject and verb and to build on more challenging topics such as subject-verb agreement, predicate nominatives, and correct usage in all areas.

The Easy Grammar Ultimate Series texts are similar to both Easy Grammar and Daily GRAMS. The texts are like Easy Grammar in that they are teaching texts. Concepts relating to phrases, clauses, compound-complex sentences, and other higher-level concepts (as well as basics) are presented in a 180 daily lesson format found in Daily GRAMS texts. Concepts are introduced, reintroduced, applied, expanded, etc. throughout each text. See the "Scope and Sequence" for each EGUS level: Grade 8, Grade 9, Grade 10, Grade 11, and Grade 12.

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).

I like that it's one page a day and covers a wide variety of grammar lessons. My daughter, who has now graduated, used these in 9th & 10th grade. While it's not exciting, it got the job done and can be done without spending a lot of extra time. It was also a Cathy Duffy top pick.

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".

Love easy grammar series. Great way to keep students fresh on grammar, who really don't need much of grammar curriculum, but review.
Ginger M on Dec 25, 2018
We love how the workbook and teacher's manual are clear and easy to understand. Plenty of repetition to master the subject.

I have been using Easy Grammar for 4 years and really love the format. I have found no reason at all to change. My child can do many of the lessons independently and self-check.

I wanted a new grammar curriculum that my kids could use that was simple to follow, taught what they needed to know, and didn't need my help all the time.
Kari C on Oct 3, 2016
My son needed a better grasp on grammar this was a way to assure he was caught up without making him feel it was kiddie review. I like that the grade is appropriate but written on a fourth grade level.

Good teaching/review for a kid who knows the information but chooses to not out his knowledge into his writing.
Karen S on Jul 16, 2016
We had used Easy Grammar early on then left it for a couple of years. I felt like my children were not grasping the parts of speech, now in late middle school and early high school. So I decided to go back to it. When the child can read their chapter books and say " that's a prepositional phrase" then something must be right about it and mom really feels like the job is accomplished.

So I can be well equipped to teach my son this year.
Connie K on Jun 22, 2016
My son, who was a late reader, continues to struggle with writing and language arts in general. These exercises keep him interacting with grammar ideas and concepts every day of the school year. I didn't set out the year to not include a grammar text but in the end it happened that way and I saw a noticeable drop in his grammar scores. In part, I attribute it to not having the daily contact with these ideas. Trying to shore up the language arts wall for later on.

Do I only need the teacher manual for the Easy Grammar since it's reproducible for my children?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2023
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all the lesson pages are in the teacher’s manual. I did find it easier to buy a workbook for all but the last kid than to copy all the pages myself. You will likely have to tear the perforated pages out of the binding in order to get a good copy, but if that works for you, it does help save some money. Hope that helps!

To the Point
This is just enough review for my son to stay fresh in the important parts of grammar. This doesn't seem to cover how to write essays or creative writing; but at 10-15 minutes per day for these lessons, he has enough time to practice what he's learned on other writing projects.

Not as user friendly as the other EG grades
I have several EG student and teachers books. The teacher book for the 8 grade is set up vet differently and I don’t like it at all. The other books have the entire page exactly like the student book only with the answers. This book has answers only and it’s in the back of the book. I’m not sure why they changed it.

This book has simplified grammar for my daughter. The short lessons are much easier for her to process than other grammar programs we've tried. She's working much more independently with this book!

I am loving this text. It is so easy to use. I have three daughters participating in the lessons, ages 14,12,8. They actually look forward to our group whiteboard lessons. The lesson breakdowns are great. This book lends so much added understanding to English grammar and writing and our other language studies as well!!

Just like the description said this IS just like Daily Grams This is exactly what I was looking for---simple 10-minute daily drills of grammar for my 8th grader without pages of overkill! We have done many years of intensive grammar programs and I really just wanted something to keep it fresh from 8th grade through high school One of my favorite things still included in this new program is the sentence combining
