Category Description for Easy Grammar Series:

"Im 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).




Category Description for Grades 7-12:

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. Grade 6 continues with subordinate clauses and introductory participial phrases. The Plus course includes expanded coverage of independent and dependent clauses.

I have used this program with my son and he learned quite a bit about grammar. I also like the structure and organization of the program.
Saralynn N on Aug 26, 2019
LOVE this program!! Have used it for 5th, 6th, and now 7th grades. Repeats and reviews, but uses prepositions to isolate other parts of sentences. Has been a brilliant method for my kids, especially my boy who has struggled with reading, writing and remembering grammar rules. It really works!

We have used this grammar book successfully for all of our children, as they begin high school. This workbook is for our last, who will start 9th grade in the fall.

Great overview of grammar for highschool students. Nice prep for writing.

I need to simplify and streamline my homeschool. The curriculum we were using no longer worked for us.
Denise P on Oct 2, 2018
I have used this with my 3 older children and it has been a useful way to teach grammar. So I order it now for number 4. Simple and easy and do-able level of grammar for our family.
Kathleen J on Sep 13, 2018
I read that the student pages are in the teacher's manual, and while that is true, the pages in the teacher's manual are not perforated, and the answer sheet mirrors the worksheet. Also, there is either teaching content or an answer key on the back of a worksheet. I don't have a photocopier in my home, and it would cost me more to photocopy the pages for my student vs. buying another workbook.
Sherrie L on Sep 11, 2018

Does this grammar book teach diagramming sentences?
User on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, Eatsy Grammar does not teach diagramming sentences, HOWEVER, this curriculum series does an AWESOME job of teaching mechanics and grammar. I only wish I had found out about it sooner! I don't know anyone who would not LOVE using the Easy Grammar series for their Language Arts curriculum. It's well done, very affordable and highly effective....I give it 2 thumbs up!!!
Does the easy grammar + workbook include the teaching sections or do I need to buy the teachers plus as well?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Easy Grammar Plus workbook does not have the answers or teaching prompts. It has a few instructional pages and lists scattered through the lessons for the student to reference. I never used the teacher's manual because I am strong in grammar skills and it was just as easy to read through the student's answers on my own. However, if you need or would prefer to have the answer key and/or prepared lesson notes, you will need a teacher manual.
Can it be used by high schoolers in 9th grade?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a good addition to English 1 for students who need a little more help. It explains things more than the Ultimate Series as that is mostly for review from my experience. Hope this helps!
How long does this curriculum require on a daily basis?
A shopper on May 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The curriculum is broken into grammar topics, so you decide how many pages to complete each day, and each day may be different. On average, my kids spend 10-15 minutes a day in a typical 180-day year doing grammar 4 days a week.
What is the difference between easy grammar and easy grammar plus?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After Easy Grammar 6, Easy Grammar Plus is next in sequence. I use it for 7th grade with my students. After Plus, the Easy Grammar books for 8th grade & up change format (less teaching, just single-page daily review exercises.)
Does this book contain the answers?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The student workbook does not contain answers. If you want the answers, buy the teacher's version which contains both the student pages and answers together. I purchased both the teacher's version and the student workbook. If you purchase only the teacher's version, but you have to copy each page for the student.

Great grammar program
I have used Easy Grammar with my 5 kids and it is great! Each grammar concept is built upon what they have already learned and there is ample practice and review. Is grammar boring? Yes, to most folks it is, but to write well, you must have good grammar skills. Book reports, English papers, Science reports, college work, thesis, #1 best seller - whatever is your students future writing assignment, Easy Grammar will help!

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)

A favorite
I have homeschooled all five or my sons, and I personally believe that using the same grammar program year after year can be tedious. Therefore, I switch between three of my favorites every three years, and Easy Grammar has been on that list from the beginning. I highly recommend that you consider this program for a year during the late middle-school or high school years.

highly recommend
I found out about GP on a homeschool video summit that included Rainbow Resource. I took my notes and did some research.
My student was only grasping minimal grammar. He was about to start high school and that means crunch time. I bought GP as a last resort, and I'm so glad I did.
I bought the workbook and the big teacher book that has one page of answers, and the next page of the student book. (copy pages?) I like having both so we can go over it together when he isn't comprehending something. I see the answers and his page while he can keep his workbook.
Personally, I can't tell you what is different about this book and how it works when others didn't. All that matters is that it is working and even better, it's now becoming fun.

Love this book. Along with the teachers guide its easy to teach and understand.

It Really Is Easy Grammar
We have used Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and Plus. A couple of times I switched to a different curriculum because I thought maybe it was too easy, but discovered the others don't explain well and are too difficult. We have always gone back to this and really like it.

Great workbook.
I am not a fan of copying pages. I think that by the time you copy, punch holes and organize the pages you have spent more time and money than buying the student workbook. I would strongly recommend this workbook to go with Easy Grammar book.
