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

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).

good reviews and I thought it would be easier to have the workbook, then to make copies of the teacher guide

This level gives students and ESL learners a solid foundation to build on because it doesn't clutter the lessons with too much material.

Needing a more complete approach to grammar...been using Easy peasy.
Jennifer L on Feb 2, 2017
Now that my 7th grader is in public school he is asking for his 5th grade workbook as reference. I was good at english in school and know all rules up to 6th grade and so found this whole series EASY to use and correct. Type Size nice and big and the white space in the books makes the lessons/pages less intimidating to the student. Have less than 10 questions after a lesson helped 3 or my 4 children get through them.

Wanted to ease of using a workbook instead of continually printing out the worksheets. The workbook seems more economical than buying ink and paper and the time saved is important right now.

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.
Heather T on Aug 9, 2016
I like how they start with prepositions, and teach that subjects, verbs etc. will not be found in prepositional phrases. The exercise are short and do not require lots of writing or contain unnecessary busy work.
Janet S on Aug 3, 2016
Quite honestly, this is an excellent Grammar series! I have used it for Grades 2-6. I just needed more student books for my 3rd grader.

How many lessons are there?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This curric is not divided into clear lesson breaks (as in "Lesson 1, Lesson 2" etc). Having used this curric at many different levels, I have found that some lessons might be only two pages, while some lessons are four pages. My kids know to count on 3-5 pages per lesson (I mark where to start and where to stop each day). If you count on four pages a day, there are about 55 lessons. Once you become familiar with the curric, it is clear to see where to start and stop (for example, in the VERBS section, you might have 3 pages about Action Verbs, five pages about Helping Verbs, etc. - all pages are clearly marked in the upper right or left corner as per subject). Hope that helps
Can I start teaching the series in the 3rd grade book for my 3rd grader or do I need to start at the beginning? How essential is the teacher book?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You do not need to start with earlier versions of Easy Grammar in my opinion. The concepts are repetitive each year, along with getting more difficult as well. I do buy the TM each year, however since this is elementary, you could choose to function without it and purchase it later if needed. The TM has all the student pages too, so technically you could purchase that only if you wanted to photocopy the pages for your child as you go along through the school year. It really depends on your comfort level of grammar and your budget.

not a fan
Tried this, but switched to something else because we found this boring. I like the idea of a workbook, and found that we like BJU English much better (and that is the only BJU item we use)

Easy way to include grammar for students who don’t enjoy writing. A few pages a day covers the book in one school year.
