Easy Grammar Plus

 

Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all students. This comprehensive workbook covers nouns, verbs, common mistakes (fragments, run-ons, etc.), phrases, clauses, adverbs, pronouns, interjections, conjunctions and the other major aspects of grammar.
