Category Description for Editor in Chief Beginning:

These workbooks were designed to be an introduction to the Editor in Chief series. Students first review the rules of grammar and mechanics by answering multiple-choice questions. They then learn to apply these rules by editing stories in a variety of formats. Units cover capitalization, punctuation, run-ons and fragments, dialogue, friendly letters, grammar, usage, and spelling. The last unit combines different types of errors into single exercises to review all of the skills simultaneously. The original Editor in Chief Beginning level will be changing to Beginning 2, and the publishers have created a "prequel" for 2nd/3rd grade. ~ Rachel S.

A few years ago a friend of mine purchased an Editor in Chief for her kids while attending a homeschool conference I thought it was a marvelous idea of making the kids look for errors in a text but never got around to purchasing one for my own kids So imagine my delight when I received the brand new Editor in Chief Beginning 1 which are geared for students in grades 2 and 3 Editor in Chief� Beginning 1 includes lessons and practice with the following concepts:CapitalizationPunctuationAn and AVerb TensesContractionsNouns and PronounsSingular and PluralAm Is AreMe and ISubject/Verb AgreementWas and WereRun-On SentencesSentence FragmentsGood and WellComparisonsHomophonesThis little gem is perfect to apply grammar lessons learned Each lesson starts with a page that will teach your child on the tricks of the English grammar For example in the Capitalization lesson you will learn when a capital letter is necessary My 2nd son is currently in grade 2 and we are going through another book to learn basic English grammar So when I received the Editor in Chief book I decided to test his comprehension by writing the text of an exercise on the white board we have in the dining room I then asked Dominic to take a different pen and make necessary corrections He was able to identify the errors while reading the text Immediately my 5th grade student asked if he could do one However this book is geared for grades 2 and 3 students So I decided to take a text that is at the end of the book to see how my oldest son would do The text at the end of the book are a bit more complicated as the child has to find various errors not just the ones based on the lessons In a nutshell as the child advance progressively in the book he will also get more challenges in the corrections to make So I wrote one of the review texts for Alexandre and like his brother he proceeded to identify the errors in it I think the fact that they have to search for the errors help quite a bit to revise the rules and apply it in the sentences that they read Both kids did well and since then every day they ask me to do another one I am still at the beginning of the book for Dominic while Alexandre works on the ones at the end of the book Today I even made an extra error in Alexandre�s text without realizing it He found it no problem Smart kid!My kids are totally hooked on this product and my oldest would love to have one for his level I would totally recommend this product to any homeschoolers as well as parents for supplementing lessons from school It is well done and creative at the same time The kids will love to become the Sherlock Holmes of grammar errors!

This little gem is perfect to apply grammar lessons learned Each lesson starts with a page that will teach your child on the tricks of the English grammar For example in the Capitalization lesson you will learn when a capital letter is necessary My 2nd son is currently in grade 2 and we are going through another book to learn basic English grammar So when I received the Editor in Chief book I decided to test his comprehension by writing the text of an exercise on the white board we have in the dining room I then asked Dominic to take a different pen and make necessary corrections He was able to identify the errors while reading the text Immediately my 5th grade student asked if he could do one However this book is geared for grades 2 and 3 students So I decided to take a text that is at the end of the book to see how my oldest son would do The text at the end of the book are a bit more complicated as the child has to find various errors not just the ones based on the lessons In a nutshell as the child advances progressively in the book he will also get more challenges in the corrections to make So I wrote one of the review texts for Alexandre and like his brother he proceeded to identify the errors in it I think the fact that they have to search for the errors help quite a bit to revise the rules and apply it in the sentences that they read Both kids did well and since then every day they ask me to do another one I am still at the beginning of the book for Dominic while Alexandre works on the ones at the end of the book Today I even made an extra error in Alexandre�s text without realizing it He found it no problem Smart kid!My kids are totally hooked on this product and my oldest would love to have one for his level I would totally recommend this product to any homeschoolers as well as parents for supplementing lessons from school It is well done and creative at the same time The kids will love to become the Sherlock Holmes of grammar errors!
