Category Description for Easy Grammar Grade 5:

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.

Grades 5, 6 and EG Plus each introduce 53 prepositions. The writing units in both grades 5 & 6 cover appositives, semicolon use, and compound sentences.




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

I have found the Easy Grammar books to be one of the best and simplest curriculum for my children

Recommend by writing curriculum we will use next year.
Kathleen M on Feb 14, 2019
Easy Grammar is a thorough, really exhaustive, grammar curriculum that is not exhaust-ing. My kids do 2 pages a day, and they really enjoy them. It covers everything, and builds on itself year after year. Using it multiple years helps the grammar to stick. But we have also jumped in, in grades 4 and 6, and had no trouble. No previous knowledge is necessary, everything is explained in an orderly and concise way.

"Love Singapore Math! Have used it for 4 of my 6 kids. Great for learning to do math in your head! Great for kids who are good or average at math. Wouldn't recommend it for Math strugglers, as it doesn't have enough repetition unless you supplement."

We needed a change to our Language Arts program. This has great reviews and seems to be highly recommended and liked by many homeschoolers. So we're going to give it a try.

My son is taking a beginning Latin class this year, so it will be the focus of his language arts for this year. I want him to be able to keep up with regular grammar, though, and this program is the perfect supplement.

Madhushri D on May 16, 2016
I wanted to round out grammar with my dd as this can also help with comprehension. Her writing program has grammar, but I wanted something that was a little more in depth. Hopefully this will do the trick with all the reviews and comparing I've done.

We are crazy about Easy Grammar in our home school. My three children have all become proficient in grammar using these books, much moreso than their peers who attend school.

This has been the best way for my son to learn grammar. He loves the lessons and they do a great job of reinforcing what they have learned previously.

My son has the workbook, and we are to a point where I think I need the teacher's guide. I am hoping this will give me a little help with instruction and grading.
Mrs Emily A R on Oct 29, 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.

Are the pages easy tear by chance? I’m thinking it might be hard to lay the workbook flat for my daughter to work in it even if I cover up the answer page.
Doug S on Jan 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The binding can be bent back for tearing. The pages are not perforated. It is also possible to have the binding cut professionally at an office store.
Can the student workbook be bought in a digital form?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We only carry a print version of this curriculum.
Does this book cover diagramming? Thank you!
Noelia on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This book does not cover diagramming. A different, and I believe easier, method is used so that diagramming is not needed. The core of their method starts with identifying prepositions and removing prepositional phrases. They then cover other aspects of grammar and sentence composition, such as subject, object, nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, clauses, etc. They also cover punctuation, capitalization, library skills, spelling, synonyms, antonyms, homonyms and common misspellings.
Do you need to use Easy Grammar AND Daily Grams?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
Easy Grammar Grade 5 Teacher Edition
Easy Grammar Grade 5 Teacher Edition
Daily Grams Grade 5
Daily Grams Grade 5
BEST ANSWER: No, you do not NEED, both, but they are designed to complement each other. The Daily Grams are ongoing review of principles the student has learned. Easy Grammar teaches new material, and review some, in a topic-based format. There is a group of lessons on verbs, then nouns, then clauses, for example. If you want ongoing review of capitalization rules, subject-verb agreement, etc., you will want the Daily Grams.
When using this Grammar book, is the student book also needed? Or does the Easy Grammar Grade 5 Teacher Edition contain what is needed for student and teacher?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I highly recommend buying the student book. The teacher book does contain everything you need, but the student pages in the Teacher's edition are facing the answer pages -you would have to cover up the answers while the student worked, or copy the pages for the student to complete. One year I tried using the Teacher Edition without the student book, and the time and money I spent copying the pages did not not seem worth any small amount of money I might have saved. Now I always buy the student book!
Would a student feel lost in Grade 5 of Easy Grammar if they haven't done any of the previous grade levels in the program?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have used a lot of the easy grammar books. I like them because the answers are right there on the left page ( because sometimes I am the one who needs to peak at them to make sure I know what I'm talking about). Also, my kids are pretty independent when they use them. As far as jumping in at grade 5, I'd say if they can make it past the first 20 pages , there is enough repetition to get what they are teaching.
Will a student be lost if they start in Grade 5 of Easy Grammar without having done the previous grade books?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi! I started my daughter in Easy Grammar in 6th grade and it was the best thing we could have done for her. She is now in college and has done wonderful in her classes from 6th grade on in both her grammar and writing. My 9th grader just started back to public hight school and has had no issues with grammar. My son is 5th grade and loves this book. My advice is to make sure your student memorizes the prepositions in the front of the book. We put ours to songs, etc... You can find some fun ways to memorize those online. Hope this helps!

Easy to swallow bite-size grammar
This language curriculum uses a short daily lesson to teach and review basic grammar, punctuation, and parts of speech. You also practice creating sentences. I like it so far, because the lessons are simple to understand and repeat Concepts before adding more. One thing I did not like is that there are 10 introductory lessons in the back of the book, which I did not see until we were several weeks in. They should have been at the beginning of the book

For the first time in years my daughter has enjoyed grammar This will be our second year using this program - she specifically asked to use Easy Grammar again I was impressed last year with the well thought out program This year I was even more impressed as I realized how much my daughter actually retained and continues to apply!
October 3, 2009
As a homeschooling mother of 4 in my humble opinion Easy Grammar is the foremost grammar program From the outset eliminating prepositional phrases was a paramount step in the understanding of grammar as well as effective writing for my children We use Institute for Excellence in Writing and having memorized the prepositional phrases as well as learning to identify the other parts of speech for Easy Grammar helped them to easily add "dress-ups" to their papers There is ample practice and instruction is to the point I find there is minimal preparation on my part I have found it preferable to other programs for imparting a working knowledge of grammar in the children learning more than I had thought they would It is well worth the money paid
