I have always enjoyed teaching grammar to my children. It hasn't always been an easy task but we have managed to get through it. I wish I would have had Easy Grammar Ultimate Series: Grade 11 from Easy Grammar Systems. These lessons have made it so easy to teach many wonderful concepts to my son during our new school year.
The Easy Grammar Ultimate Series: Grade 11 includes a Teacher Edition and a test booklet. There are 180 daily teaching lessons. Each lesson takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. At the beginning of the Teacher Edition there is a scope and sequence. It will give you a look at what each lesson will be about. It begins with introducing the concept, then follows up with a review. The lessons also include expanded concepts and applied concepts.
This Teacher Edition isn't your typical teacher book. You are not just given instructions in this edition. Instead it has the lessons for your student right there. You are free to reproduce the lessons or just use the pages from the Teacher Edition. The answers are located in the back of the book, so if you are just going to hand the book to your student to use, I suggest taking out the answers and placing them in a folder of their own.
The lessons in the 11th grade will include:
- Difficult Words
- Double Negatives
- Fragment Sentences/Run-Ons
- Sentence Types
- Subject/Verb Agreement
- Subject/Verb Identification
- Subject of an Imperative Sentence
This grammar resource is very thorough yet it is not overwhelming to the student. My son, who is in the 10th grade has no problem understanding and completing each lesson. I love that it is teaching him skills without making him hate grammar. The way the lessons are broken up fits his personality well. Not too much to take in at once.
After you complete 10 lessons, you have the option of giving a test. This will help you see what concepts were learned well and what ones may need worked on. There are 18 assessments in all. In our school, we don't test instead we go over the tests together and make sure we understand what we have been taught. This takes the pressure off of my son and allows him to learn without fear of failing a "test". He does very well when we talk through each question and that is all I need to see.
I really like this grammar curriculum and will be using it in the future for my son and daughter. I can say this is a great fit for our family!
