Grade 2

     The Grade 2 books, Nouns to Paragraphs, introduce the 2nd Grader to grammar and structure. The average 2nd Grader should begin in the second half of the year. High performers might be able to begin at the end of the 1st or the beginning of the 2nd grade. Third graders or struggling readers and writers of any level could begin here. The teacher book comes with a student book since the students aren't fluent writers. The teacher and student book together count as 1 Book when making up sets.

     They start with nouns and take the students to short paragraphs.

See the Table of Contents and a Sample Lesson Plan.

Elementary I Workbook

 

     The workbooks for Elementary I and II are not to take the place of instruction or writing. They focus on repetition of concepts that must be in the short term memory in order to use them in written assignments.

     If your students forgets in 10 minutes what the lesson was about, they might need the workbooks for reinforcement. Because they are not absolutely necessary for all children, they are sold separately with their own price.

It can be started as early as the second half of the 4th grade for high performing students, and as late as 10th or 11th grade for students struggling to understand and use correct English structures.

     The Intermediate Level includes 40 lessons, examples of sentence types, writing prompts and assignment answers. There is also a complete glossary of grammar terms.
