Format: Paperback
This book was extremely helpful to us in a 6th Grade Language Arts unit. this is filled with GAMES and ACTIVE ways to explore nouns, verbs, sentences - types, fragments, and run-ons.

Using the student's multiple intelligences, you actually make language interesting! You read the lesson idea beforehand, gather materials, and then lead the child or class through an activity.

I found it the perfect program to mix with dry sentence diagramming from elsewhere - to lift up the lesson. Afte such creative fun, my son didn't mind getting in front of a blackboard with me to diagram a few sentences.

Also, instead of just deciding if a verb was a verb, we now decide if it is "vivid" and look at nouns as specific or general - great for strengthening creative writing...and with activities across all learning styles, not lecture. That is hard to find in middle school language arts.

As a homeschooler, I did notice two teacher terms used (perhaps this is what the earlier reviewer was referring to) - mnemonics (rhymes for teaching) and rubric (like a short chart explaining something) - and some of the activities have to be adapted as they were designed for a group - still most activities didn't need any adaptation and I was totally pleased with the way my child responded to these active lessons.

There were several activities in this book which I enjoyed..."Stomp Out Run-Ons" and "Fragment Puzzle." However, many of the activities were not creative and required long paper trails and lots of floor space. I think I would use the noun tree next year, but I received the book after having already covered that topic next year. Overall, I didn't think the book was "hands-on" enough to call itself "awesome."

This book is okay, but there are a lot of references that students today will not get because they are a bit dated. This was probably an excellent book in the 1980's.

I'm pleased with this book in both its organization and ideas. I immediately started using some of the activities in my fourth grade class and the kids really enjoyed them. It's more interesting and interactive than worksheets and will, hopefully, help them retain the information on grammar.

I teach junior high language arts and this book has been a life saver. The sentence activities in this book are great in helping break up the monotony of worksheets and textbook exercises. You have to create your own student instruction sheets and rubrics for a lot of the projects, but the activities themselves are exactly what I needed to make grammar more enjoyable.

There are a lot of great ideas in this book, I'm sure I'll be using quite a few of them in my classes. Sometimes you read a book of activities and wonder if kids would actually enjoy doing them but even though there are some silly moments in this book I think it was worth the money.

Some good ideas, but not enough for 6th grade level. Will share with lower grade teachers. Like 'hands on' activities.
