“Not only does this book address three grade levels, it addresses the needs of teachers, parents, and students alike. It provides a solid foundation for teachers, a no-nonsense format for parents, and an easy-to-understand writing style for students. There is a clear forward movement to the lessons, each building on previous knowledge and acting as a springboard for future concepts. This book is a treasure trove of ideas that will enrich students for the rest of their lives.” ―Michael Gravois, MEd in Early Childhood Literacy, author of 21 Scholastic Teaching Resources
“Grammar rules can be tricky, and at times they can be so challenging! In this book, Shelly's expertise jumps off each page in clear language and well-organized chapters. She has created an easy to follow layout and has written in a way that students and adults alike can easily grasp the challenging concepts of the English language. I haven't found another book on the market that captures the attempt to master these fundamental concepts of language and grammar in a way that this book does. Clear communication in written language is essential, and this book lays the groundwork!” ―Kim Miller, content creator and curriculum developer at A Love of Teaching
“Let's be honest, all of our students would benefit from more grammar instruction! Shelly's explicit lessons allow you to easily tackle a lesson on any grammar skill. This book is a fantastic reference tool for the classroom!” ―April Smith, teacher and online professional development coach

The lessons are short and clear. There is a lot of variety in the practice activities and they are scaffolded well. Each two-page spread is visually clean, feels manageable, and is interesting. Plus, I didn’t find any mistakes in its explanations! It is nice to find a book where the information presented is accurate.
The book cover describes it as being “for parents looking to build their child’s understanding of grammar and supplement what they’re already learning in school.” I think it does an excellent job. I would recommend this for all homeschoolers and public school children!
One tiny quibble: nowhere is there a list of skills covered. The table of contents says only Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5. There is no index. If your child needed to work on a particular skill, such as prepositions, you would have to read the entire book to find the relevant pages. Therefore, here’s the list:
Grade 3: subjects and predicates, nouns, concrete and abstract nouns, common and proper nouns, capitalization of proper nouns, singular and plural nouns, irregular plural nouns, possessives, action verbs, verb tense, irregular verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adjectives that compare, adverbs, conjunctions, simple and compound sentences, capitalization in titles, commas in a series, writing quotations
Grade 4: complete sentences, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, simple subjects and simple predicates, compound subjects and compound predicates, compound sentences, relative pronouns, relative adverbs, linking verbs, main verbs and helping verbs, progressive verb tense, adjective categories, adjective order, prepositions, prepositional phrases, commonly confused words, titles of works, commas in quotations, commas and coordinating conjunctions, proofreading
Grade 5: possessive nouns, using irregular verbs, verbs with direct objects, using the present tense, perfect verb tense, troublesome verb pairs, spelling verbs correctly, subject pronouns, object pronouns, possessive pronouns, contractions, homophones, predicate adjectives, using more or most with adjectives, comparative adverbs, adjective or adverb?, correlative conjunctions, using commas, subject-verb agreement, writing compound sentences
The Grades 6, 7, and 8 book in this series does not have positive reviews because the simple two-page coverage of each topic isn’t sufficient at that level for the complexities of advanced grammar. However, for the lessons above (many of which are taught in Montessori schools in first and second grades), this format is quite suitable.
I received a free advance copy of this book from the publisher and am giving an honest non-compulsory review.
The author has done a GREAT job of laying this book out. Yes, it is a textbook but no, it is not boring and the lessons are not long. The pages are colorful and there are fun puzzles interspersed. The book starts off the basics: nouns, verbs etc. and then proceeds on. If you need them, answers are provided at the back.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. Thanks, Liz
