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.

Vocabulary

Wordly Wise 3000 Book 7, 4th Edition contains 20 lessons with 15 words per lesson and focuses on preparing students to be able to decipher words they'll encounter in content area texts, literature, and tests. Lessons begin with word lists that include definitions with contextual sentences, much like dictionary entries; a selection of activities follow the word list, which include replacing a phrase with a word from the list that means the same thing, identifying the correct definition, choosing the best word to complete a sentence, identifying synonyms, reading passages followed by comprehension questions, discussion/writing extension ideas, and other exercises. This book also comes with 12 months of access to Quizlet (with Book 7 words pre-loaded), in which students practice learning words and definitions in an ad-free environment, test themselves on their knowledge, and play motivating games to reinforce long-term retention of words.
