Simple and effective
This school year (2018-2019) I started my son (9yo) with another grammer program that I really loved...at least in theory. Unfortunately it did not work for him...nothing was sticking so I knew I needed another approach. We are now halfway through Level 1A and I am genuinely pleased at how well this program is working for him. The pages of work are not jammed packed with things to do so are not overwhelming. He works through most of it independently asking questions as things come up. I do quiz him at the end of each week using the provided assessments. We listen to the chants daily - and this is huge in helping him remember. There is an abundance of practice and at this point I don't need to assign him all of it but I like that it is there if/when he will need it. Instead of diagramming sentences like we used to do in the 80s, this analyzes sentences...marking up the sentence in its original form which makes more sense to me. I highly recommend this! Check the samples and be sure to buy the chants CD.

I have a strange passion for grammar and I'm hoping that this book will help my boy understand why. If this doesn't do the trick, nothing will I suspect. He loves science, and he needs to learn to write good lab reports.

Do you need the teacher's edition to use the student workbooks?
User on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion, yes, the teacher’s text book is just as necessary as the student workbook (maybe even more important). The two books logically parallel each other in words and page numbers (i.e., if student is on page 12, the teacher’s book is also page 12); yet the teachers book also includes things that are purposely omitted with the student book such as:

Analysts scripts, which get adapted/updated throughout the lessons
Answers in detail
Sidebar extras of ideas and information
Extended poetry
Extra teacher presentation papers and scripts for each lesson (which are labeled/numbered using letters rather than numbers and are included with each chapter of learning)

If you are on a tight budget and cannot afford both books, get the teachers book and have the student write and analyze on loose leaf paper (horizontal format for line length) or on a very large dry erase board, if you have one. That said, analysts outside the book is much more challenging and difficult because of the length of sentences and the amount and methods of marking that needs a generous amount of space, which is nicely formatted already in the student book.

I’m very happy with the Well Ordered Language curriculum and its content, the length of instruction, the word pictures used to explain complicated subjects, and the songs that help memorize concepts. My kids enjoy the lessons and are learning quickly. We also have the music CD, which I would highly recommend purchasing for learning. The songs are professionally produced, catchy, memorable, and an integral part of the lessons for review.

Blessings,

How does this curriculum, Well Ordered Language, differ from Rod and Staff's English curriculum?
User on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While both approaches would be considered strong grammar books, there are definitely differences between the two. First, R & S covers both grammar and composition/writing while WOL only covers grammar. Second, WOL is based on teacher-student interaction and uses chants to cover verb tenses and sentence patterns. R&S, while still requiring teacher participation provides more student independent work. Both programs teach diagramming.
Would this level be appropriate for a soon-to-be 6th grader who struggles with grammar?
User on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If your student has had little systematic grammar instruction, then yes, Level 1 would be appropriate even though the target audience is a bit younger (i.e. 3rd-4th).
Would this be appropriate to use for a soon-to-be 6th grader who struggles with grammar?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I personally have purchased this program to use with my 3rd grader. Looking at the program, I would think it would work well for a "soon-to-be 6th grader" who struggles a bit with grammar. The program website recommends this program for 3rd - 4th grades AND UP. It may be a good thing to speak with the program developers and explain your situation to see if this would be a good fit. I'm sorry if this wasn't too helpful.
