[Update – Congratulations to Twila, who won the Easy Grammar giveaway. Twila, please contact me with your mailing address by Monday, Feb. 14.]
It’s time for another goodie giveaway! Today I am giving away Easy Grammar Grades 3 & 4 along with Daily Grams Grade 4 and Daily Guided Teaching and Review for 2nd and 3rd Grades. The Easy Grammar book is in great shape with no writing inside. The Daily Grams book has been filled out through page 74 in pencil; pages 75-180 are unmarked.
The Daily Guided Teaching and Review has a worn/dirty cover but the inside is unmarked. I really liked this system because once a child learns the prepositions and eliminates the prepositional phrases from a sentence, it is much easier to understand what is left. From the Easy Grammar website:
“Easy Grammar texts use the prepositional approach combined with effective strategies. This helps students to understand grammar, a tool for speaking and writing properly.”
About Daily Grams:
“Guided Review Aiding Mastery Skills texts have been designed as a 5-10 minute, daily review to be used at the beginning of every lesson. Students use concepts learned in capitalization, punctuation, and other areas on a daily basis. This process promotes mastery learning. See individual texts for ‘Content and Sequence’ and format.”
Reminders: The items in Goodies Up For Grabs may be gently used or like new. While the item itself should be in good condition (I’m not guaranteeing it because I won’t be watching every video or listening to every CD), the covers may not be in great shape. As of this writing, items are all from my personal shelves but that may change if friends offer to contribute to the stash. I may not have actually used the item. (You don’t ever do that, do you? Buy curriculum and not use it? I didn’t think so.) Some of the resources may be older versions – I have several great videos but they are on VHS tapes – so be sure to pay attention to whether the format of a resource will work for you.
The rules are simple – for each item, just post in the comments section of the blog post what you like about that particular item. Please only post once for each item. The choice will be random, so it will not increase your chances of winning to tell how your husband just left you and your house burned down and you lost your job so you really *need* the item. Keep it simple, and happy homeschooling!
