Winston Grammar Reviews

Winston Grammar does away with the traditional grammar textbook, lecture approach, and heavy emphasis on memorization. Instead, it gives students a set of color-coded clue cards and a book of exercises, which together generate multi-sensory activities. These activities teach grammar sentence diagramming. Students do this through moving, hearing, seeing, and speaking. Each kit has a teachers manual and a workbook. The lessons start with “articles” and build knowledge one part of speech at a time until students can diagram full sentences.

  1. Winston Grammar Review by Natalie
    Pros: Practical grammar application, engages different learning styles
    Cons: The order is which parts of speech are taught doesn't always seem right

    Grades Used: 3 & 5

    I have been using the Winston Grammar Kit for several months now with my 8 year old and 10 year old. They work together with one of them using the cards to diagram the sentence while the other diagrams it on the worksheet. They switch every other one. I’m amazed at their abilities to diagram the sentences using articles, nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, pronouns, prepositions and prepositional phrases. We are only about half way through the kit too. I have to say, it has been as much of a learning experience for me as for them. The lessons are easy to use and the application of grammar makes sense. My son even wrote his own sentence yesterday and diagrammed it just for the fun of it. My only con is that it seems that it would be easier for them to understand certain concepts if they taught other concepts first (or together). Such as, learning subject and predicate earlier on would make it easier to find the verb and divide up the sentence. Overall though, it is still easy to learn and can be used with a variety of ages.
    When we are done with the kit (which came with the teachers manual, workbook, and parts of speech cards), I am going to look into more of their programs. It is definitely grammar made easy and useful.
