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.

We have used Basic Winston Grammar and I loved it. Now that the kiddos are in high school it was the obvious choice for grammar study.

I am pleased, and so is my child, to have a program that does not require diagramming.

We have used the Winston Basic Level and Winston Basic Level Supplemental and my daughter learned so much. We look forward to moving to the next level.

We're completing the Winston Grammar series which is the best that I have used for teaching grammar. The logical order of this program (i.e. determining the type of noun being used in a sentence) makes it easy for me as a homeschooling parent.

Soo D on Dec 12, 2017
We love Winston Grammar because my daughter is a kinesthetic learner. The program helps solidify the abstract concepts in grammar. Very simple and easy to use. Thank you!

This is what our family will use in our upcoming home school year. It's exactly what we need, and it's all in one convenient kit.

This program is a supportive way to teach grammar to my dyslexic students.
Katie V on Jan 24, 2017
excellent program! Love the basic level for my 4th & 6th graders!
Amy W on Dec 5, 2016
I'm currently using level one with my 8th grader. She loves the cards and we even use them to label sentences that aren't part of the Winston Grammar book. Because of her age, we are moving through level one rapidly, and I'm eager to get to the advanced level.
Toni G on Oct 24, 2016
We used it with an older child in the family and decided to try it again with the youngest.

We have been pleased with Winston Basic and are ready for more depth.
Kristi P on Mar 3, 2016
I needed a hands on, visual grammar program. My daughter finds diagramming tedious and complicated. I hope this will help her to better retain what she is learning.

What does the Advanced Version Winston Grammar cover that the Basic does not? How do they differ?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: From the publisher:

The Basic Level Winston Grammar Program covers the following concepts: Nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositional phrases, coordinating conjunctions, interjections, nouns of direct address, subjects, direct and indirect objects, and appositives.

The Advanced Level Winston Grammar Program picks up where the Basic Program leaves off. After several worksheets of review, the topics covered are: possessive adjectives, possessive pronouns and nouns, reflexives, interrogative pronouns, present and past participles, correlative conjunctions, infinitives, gerunds, relative pronouns, compound and complex sentences, and embedded noun clauses.
