Simple book without pictures or color, written in a conversational tone. The author teaches crossing off prepositional phrases first, which removes a major source of confusion. Method uses labeling parts of speech, underlining, crossing out, etc but does not teach diagramming.
This book contains lessons you can read through with your kids, then practice pages to photocopy, followed by the corrected pages. If you have only one child, you could do the work in the book. Easy to understand. Plenty of practice. Good for 4th or 5th grade and up, a complete grammar course that does not need to be completed in one year.
The book is not scripted, so it is not going to teach the teacher how to explain grammar. For example, the book contains a list of prepositions, but the teacher will have to know how to teach what a preposition is (such as with the rabbit and the bridge) and then the book provides plenty of practice. The author does have short explanations now and again, and because concepts are presented in such small increments, it is very easy to understand without much teaching.
Many grammar books begin with subject, verbs, nouns, and adjectives, complete and incomplete sentences. When I have used those books, I noticed that some students got confused as soon as the sentence structure got a little more complicated.
Easy Grammar Plus is a structured, sequential approach that begins with prepositional phrases. Students first learn to recognize prepositions. Once they take all of the prepositional phrases out of a sentence, they find it easier to identify the parts of speech of the few words left.
The structured, sequential approach allows for extensive practice for each new concept presented as well as consistent review of concepts previously taught. Therefore, students acquire a complete understanding of new material being presented, but are never given the opportunity to forget what was learned before.
