Category Description for Easy Grammar Grade 3:

  Start by learning a list of prepositions? Unusual, yes, but effective. Then, by identifying and crossing out prepositional phrases, students can see the core of each sentence. Covering parts of speech, capitalization, punctuation, and sentence writing, concepts are presented in small, understandable increments, followed by plenty of practice. The overall approach is mastery, utilizing a system of sentence labeling rather than diagramming. Correcting/grading is easy, requiring a minimum of teacher time and might be done by the student himself (with supervision). Course components include a Teacher Edition, Student Workbook and Test Book. Each grade level Teacher Edition provides bite-size lessons, student practice and assessment pages, and those same pages with answers filled in. Both the practice pages and the tests are reproducible for families. Student Workbooks include lesson and practice pages. Test Books provide pre and post tests as well as sectional tests.

  Grade 3 introduces 28 prepositions and the process of deleting prepositional phrases.




Category Description for Easy Grammar Series:

"I'm understanding grammar for the first time in my life!" This is the testimony of many homeschooling moms when they use Easy Grammar with their students. Students start by learning a list of prepositions. Then, by identifying and crossing out prepositions and prepositional phrases, students can see the core of each sentence. Concepts are presented in small, understandable increments, followed by plenty of practice. Each grade level book (teacher book) is a complete grammar course with ample, effective teaching strategies, workbook pages, and assessments (tests) all between two covers. Its convenient and takes no teacher preparation time. Its easy to understand why everybody wins with this amazing grammar program. Students learn grammar completely and thoroughly through easy-to-understand teaching segments and lots of enjoyable practice and can do much of the work independently. Teachers/moms are not burdened with hefty prep demands. Correcting/grading is easy, requiring a minimum of teacher time. The workbook pages and tests are reproducible for families, although you will probably want to purchase the student workbooks because of the sheer volume of copying involved (200-300+ pages). Tests can be reproduced from the teacher book, or buy the test booklet.

The program retains all of its strong characteristics providing complete coverage of parts of speech, types of sentences, capitalization, and punctuation.

Revised in 2007, these effective and user-friendly courses are even better. Books are now grade specific (starting in grade 3) with pre- and post-assessments and sentence writing units added to each level. Easy Grammar workbooks include the workbook pages (also included in Easy Grammar Teacher), the rules pages/teaching segments, and a writing section. The test booklets contain copies of all of the tests including both the pre- and post-assessment tests for the grade level. Grade 3 (revision of former grades 3-4) introduces 28 prepositions and the process of deleting prepositional phrases. Grade 4 (revision of former grades 4-5) introduces 40 prepositions. The sentence writing units for grades 3 and 4 are similar, covering items in a series and appositives. Grade 5 (a new text), Grade 6 (revision of former grades 5-6), and the revised Easy Grammar Plus (grades 7-12) each introduce 53 prepositions. The writing units in both grades 5 & 6 cover appositives, semicolon use, and compound sentences, and grade 6 continues with subordinate clauses and introductory participial phrases. The Plus course now includes expanded coverage of independent and dependent clauses. The revised version includes all of the original material with the writing and assessment additions. Also included in each teacher book is a Daily Grams "sampler" the first ten days from the same grade Daily Grams. In case youre wondering, it is possible to use an older teacher book with a new student workbook. The student book will include the new writing exercises without answers, but all of the other workbook answers are available from the older teacher books. Since the pre/post assessments are only available in the new teacher book (w/answers) or the test booklet (w/o answers), an older teacher book will be missing those items.

Easy Grammar Grade 2 and Daily Grams

The Easy Grammar: Grade 2 Daily Guided Teaching and Review is a revision of Daily Guided Teaching and Review (Daily Grams) 2/3 and contains some material from the previous book along with new material. It is organized like the Daily Grams with daily worksheets; however, unlike the Daily Grams, which are solely practice worksheets, these worksheets also contain brief, introductory grammatical instruction. As such, they are considered the first of the Easy Grammar series rather than part of the Daily Grams series. There is no test booklet for this level. ~ Janice

We have been going through the Easy Grammar series for a couple years. After trying different programs prior to that, I find that this is the best method to teach a rather difficult to grasp grammar. It builds upon simple principle and by the end of the book, the children are applying the more advanced rules without issues.

Easy Grammar Grade 2 worked great for my son. Need the next level.

The pathway is Co-op encouraged me to order this and said it was a very fine choice
Tanya L on Jul 1, 2019
As a homeschooler, I have a morning "warm-up" on the dry board to review just a few math and/or language skills. I am hoping, after reviewing downloaded pages, that this will take the pressure off of me to be "creative" in thinking of what to put on the dry board. Additionally, it will provide a more structured learning or review. I also purchased the Grade 2 Teaching and Review as it has a different focus.

We need to add grammar into our homeschool day. This got good reviews and looks like a simple way for us to get started.

I've been looking for a solid grammar curriculum. This set doesn't look very intimidating, which is great for building a solid foundation!

A Few friends and Homeschool moms said they love it . So i want to give it a try.

I chose to purchase this product because it is on Bright Ideas Press Illuminations year 2 curriculum list. Rainbow Resource Center was recommended to purchase from. The prices were great and I love the free shipping on orders over $50.

Looks like the most comprehensive grammar curriculum that provides straightforward explanations. Also, our daughter's "traditional" school used this curriculum as well.

I used Easy Grammar Plus with two of my children, and we learned a lot. I learned things I had never been taught in school. I actually like grammar.<br />I needed to start at an earlier stage with my next child, so I have ordered Grade 3, and I am looking forward to learning some new things myself.

I have heard a lot of good things about Easy Grammar and decided to give it a try after not having a good experience with our current grammar program. The answer key will also save me time when checking my child's work for correctness.

Do I need the student book or can I make copies from the teacher book?
User on Apr 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought both the teacher book and the student book and I'm glad I did. The student book is thinner and easier to deal with and write in. Making copies from the teacher book would work perfectly well, it would just take a great deal of time.
Do you need the teacher guide?
User on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I would definitely get one. I tried to do without one this year, and it was too difficult. Later, I saw a friend's teacher's guide, and I saw how important the "script" is that is in the guide. There were a lot of concepts I inadvertently skipped because I wasn't using the guide.

True to name
This is the first year that we have homeschooled full-time (and where i have had the Teachers Edition) but it is the second year that my daughter has used Easy Grammar. Easy Grammar is very straightforward and easy to use. Teaches grammar simply but clearly. The lessons are short and not overwhelming. I usually have my daughter do two pages a day and it takes her about 10 minutes. The Teacher's Edition is also easy to use. While the student workbook is open and go each day, I do recommend reading thru the Teacher's Edition before beginning to use it. There are many days when there is little to no instruction needed, but that does not mean that the Teacher's Edition is unneccesary. I need help remembering the grammar rules myself and the Teacher's Edition does that for me. In the Teacher's Edition there is also a mention of possibly teaching the book out of order if desired. That is what we are doing, teaching the later sections on Punctuation and Capitalization first. I do recommend the Teacher's Edition.
