Category Description for Easy Grammar Grade 4:

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 4 introduces 40 prepositions. The sentence-writing units for grades 3 and 4 are similar, covering items in a series and appositives.

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).

I chose this program this year because it does not require a lot of time from me (the teacher/parent) or the student. We need extra time for other subjects this year and using Easy Grammar solved some scheduling challenges. Our composition component is included in History assignments as well as Character Development Class assignments.

We used Easy Grammar Grade 3 successfully. It's a comprehensive grammar program and I buy the teacher's edition so I can brainlessly correct at the end of the day when I'm tired, but it's definitely not necessary. There is a lot of information to cover so make it a daily part schooling, otherwise you'll be playing catch-up (like we did). The cumulative reviews are redundant in their entirety; however, you can put a check next to any areas of difficulty and have your student focus on them.

Looking for something simple and clear cut. This works very well with my son. Love the emphasis on learning the prepositions first. Once we followed this approach, he had an easier time learning how to locate subject and verb in a sentence. Really like it so far.

I home schooled 4 of my 6 children and we loved this. I now adopted 2 more children and still feel it is an excellent curriculum. goes over the same concepts, but much easier to grasp.

My children have learned a great deal about grammar and "Easy Grammar" does just that ... it makes it easy. I'm not great with grammar and I homeschool my kids. I've been learning right along with them and I now understand much better than I did when I was in school.

Eva S on Nov 20, 2015
Any grade of Easy Grammar is exceptional. It is straight forward teaching and learning, at a very affordable price. The repetition really helps children memorize things like: prepositions, helping verbs, etc. It also cuts through all of the cutesy, "fun" distractions that I see in a lot of teaching materials. I don't just want my children to have a "good school experience", I want them to have a proper education. Easy Grammar really provides a good, solid Grammar foundation with ease.
Dana S on Oct 23, 2015
This was recommended by a friend. So far it hasn't let us down. My daughter says she likes it much better than the previous curriculum we were using and she is picking up the material quickly. It is straight forward and easy to follow for both teacher and student.

Does the teacher edition only have the answers? Or does it have a blank slate page to copy from? As opposed to using the student workbook in conjunction with the teacher edition. My goal is to save some money if possible and purchase this and not the workbook if I can just make copies for the work.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The teacher’s edition is a complete book, meaning it includes the student pages and the answers. The students pages areon the right of the double page spread (when you’re holding the book open in front of you) and the answers are on the left page. What I’ve alway done is had the binding cut off and 3 hole punch the book, putting it in a binder. I teach the lesson (everything included in the book) and then remove the pages I want my child to do - with instructions on how she should complete the first page and then put that page BEHIND the pages (not flipping them) so the answers aren’t exposed. It’s simple, hopefully I explained it okay. My child is not prone to “cheating” so it works great. The curriculum is excellent and extremely comprehensive, but be forewarned - it’s A LOT of grammar so if your child at least likes or loves grammar it’s a great fit, but if they’re reluctant you may have a difficult time because you need to cover a decent amount every day. And lastly, please call Rainbow’s number and speak with a consultant because they are all extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and pleasant, too!
What level introduces diagramming?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Easy Grammar does not introduce diagramming at all. Instead, the program uses a system of labeling designed to identify parts of speech and parts of sentences.

Teacher Edition helpful, but not necessary
The Teacher Edition of both Easy Grammar Grade 3 and 4, I've used both, have helpful extended teaching information. If you are able to comprehend the grammar with the minimal explanations in the student workbooks though, it really doesn't add too much to the program. Having the answer key is helpful, but so far it is pretty easy to check without a key.

Easy Grammar 3 and 4 student workbooks are great. Easy Grammar 2 is completely different and I don't recommend it at all. Starting with Grade 3 the lessons are short, teaching is at the top of every page with enough explanation for most students to get it, there is enough practice without going overboard. And it's secular.

I really like Easy Grammar and highly recommend it.

I used Easy Grammar grade 3 this year and am getting ready to order grade 4 for next year It is the most comprehensive grammar program I have come across I purchased two others before this that were completely useless This is so easy to teach my son completely understands it and likes it They do an incredibly thorough job
April 21, 2009
I'm so happy to have finally tried Easy Grammar! After trying other programs that required a lot of teacher preparation and figuring out it is truly wonderful to be able to pick up the book see exactly where we left off and go from there The concept is given at the top of the page with examples making it easy for me to know what all needs to be explained/taught And the workbook style enables me to teach and go; my daughter can do the rest of the page while I'm doing other things We will definitely continue with Easy Grammar
October 30, 2008
My son is an auditory learner and is at different levels in the many areas of language arts Easy Grammar has been easy to use The lessons are short and to the point He is retaining the information well Teacher prep is minimal it did take a few look-throughs when I purchased the book to understand the layout We purchased the teacher book student book and test book which was a good value We will continue to using Easy Grammar products in the future
