Product Description:

A lighter, more enjoyable approach than your typical grammar lesson. Every lesson begins with a sentence that breaks the rule for that lesson, resulting in a humorous sentence, to show students what happens when you don't follow the language rules. Then, by applying the rule, the same sentence is written correctly. Guided activities follow to give the student practice at applying the rule. Even more practice is given in fun, independent exercises in which the student interprets logic clues to utilize the newly learned rule. Topics covered include capitalization, run-on sentences, agreement, modifiers, pronouns, verbs, unnecessary words, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary and more. Answers are provided, and worksheets are reproducible for your own use. ~ Stephanie

These materials are also comprehensive in scope but are supplemental as opposed to more complete programs.

we are not a hi-level grammar requiring family. my students read a lot and their interests seem to lie in science and math fields. I want to have an assurance that they understand their basic grammar rules and this is a good supplement for me. We do not use grammar programs but use this instead. Our English requirements for high school focus on communication skills thru speech, literature and technical writing.

My oldest has finished First Language Lessons and I was looking for something to reinforce what he's learned and keep the rules of grammar fresh in his memory as he heads into late middle school.

We used Language Mechanic in conjunction with Language Smarts D My child began the year severe lack of confidence regarding grammar and writing By the end of the year he was confidently writing paragraphs and even a small research paper This curriculum is not only a great price but has very thorough instructions as well
