Excellent Curriculum
I started using Grammar and Writing when my son was in the 6th grade. He's in the 8th now and doing quite well. I also have a 5th grader who is using Grammar and Writing for the first time. He too is grasping all of the material. Before we used Grammar and Writing, we used a very expensive curriculum that many classical programs use. My now 8th grader just never caught on. But when we started Grammar and Writing it's like the switch turned on and it's been on ever since. Grammar and Writing is a very thorough cure that covers all bases. I highly recommend it. The only thing I would like to see improvement on is the binding of the big grammar workbook. A couple of my pages at the beginning of the book were not bound they came right out of the book as I was turning the pages. Other than that, excellent curriculum.

Autonomous grammar
No pictures, no razzle-dazzle, but the grammar lessons are thorough, and presented in small, self-contained bits, and the authors don't talk down to the student. A college student could pick up even the fourth-grade version and not feel that it was too childish. This is the most autonomous subject we have. My boys can sit themselves down at 8:00 a.m. and know what lesson they're on, read the instructions, and complete the exercise without my assistance. The teacher's guide makes correcting the work super simple too.

I have used this curriculum for 4th and 5th grade. Took a break and used a free grammar program. We came back to Saxon because it's the most comprehensive LA curriculum I have found.

Program is incremental. That means there are fewer chances for holes in the information taught and the student will receive ample experience over time for retention. It works.
Susan W on Aug 3, 2018
We need a grammar and mechanics review this year after taking a year off to focus on essay writing. We love Saxon's math programs that are thorough and provide constant review, and I'm hoping for the same with Saxon Grammar.

I am homeschooling my daughter and am very happy with the Saxon Maths program and hope for the same success with English.

I have used Saxon Math with great success over the years. The Grammar and Writing series looks thorough; I'm going to give it a try.

I wanted a program to help bring my son up to grade level. I read Cathy Duffy's review and decided to make the purchase.

I liked the fact that this was a comprehensive LA program; no buying spelling, grammar and then writing workbooks.

Although I have not used these books before, I have had experience with the Saxon Math books. They are excellent; I hope the grammar books are equally good.

Saxon Grammar is highly recommended on Homeschool sites for adolescents learning how to properly write.
Leslie S on Apr 28, 2017
Our daughter's middle school does not have a strong writing program (grades 6-8) and she scored poorly on parts of standardized test writing samples despite getting A's in all her classes. The school has recognized it's shortcoming (the scores for all students in this area are similar low) and is making changes...but our daughter graduates in June. This book looks like a great resource to expose her to what she may have missed before heading into high school.
Traci P on Feb 1, 2017
love Saxon material!
LATOYA F on Jan 9, 2017
This looked like the simplest straight forward lesson plan for continuing to grow on writing skills. I am a big fan of Saxson Math and found it to be a logical teaching platform. When I saw this was Saxson based I was sold.

I am working with an ESL student on supplemental grammar lessons over the summer. I have worked out of this text in the past and it provided the perfect amount of review and repetition needed to solidify concepts.
Nadia D on Jun 2, 2016
I love Saxon math and have used it for all my 6 children. Grammar has been a frustration, and I have tried several publishers. I am hoping that this grammar method proves to be as successful as the math curriculum has been for us.
Lisa H on May 16, 2016
I have used this book in the past with a different student and it was excellent.
Roberta D on May 11, 2016
LOVE the Saxon approach!!
Michelle A on Mar 10, 2016
My son requested going back to this series after I changed to a more integrated approach with grammar this year. He missed the sentence diagramming; it helped him understand the concepts better. The reason I changed was I had heard the 7th grade book (2009) had errors in the answer book, but when I came the RR I saw this new edition (2013), so I'm hoping corrections have been made. My son is happy, so I'm happy! I purchased the 8th grade set as well so that we have the remainder of the program.

The 7th grade kit was recommended by the Rainbow Resource bundle package when we first started homeschooling my son in 7th grade. This has been a great way to teach my son who always struggled with grammar.
Jennifer J on Jan 22, 2016
We have had great success with the Saxon Math program, so we were excited to see that Stephen Hake (author of the Saxon Middle Grades Math program) created a grammar program based on the same approach. Grammar and mathematics are similar subjects, and the incremental approach helps students review their skills daily.
