Easy Grammar Grade 3 2007

Easy Grammar Grade 3 2007

When Wanda Phillips began teaching 7th grade, she realized the correlation between the textbooks children were using, and resulting lack of grammatical knowledge. Easy Grammar & Daily Grams don't follow the standard textbook approach of teaching and moving on to the next subject with no review of previously learned material. Rather, incremental development is coupled with extensive review and refreshment, and the prepositional approach is utilized for increased retention and ease in identifying parts of speech. Simple and effective, Easy Grammar & Daily Grams have helped hundreds of children to finally understand the technicalities of the English language! Student Workbook and test booklet also available. This text contains student pages and answer key.
