Great idea in a book. Great way to make grammar fun. Not really useful for the lessons themselves, but great to follow-up (although know that there are summaries of grammar lessons included). Lots of puzzle type games and riddles where if you know your grammar, you get the answer/solution. My younger kids found it hard (8-9), but I think appropriate for those that like brain teasers...or 10 up..

Great for use with a document camera 25 Sept. 2010
By Barbara Simoes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Now that I have a Smartboard and document camera, I find I use more quick checks or worksheet kind of materials, such as this book provides. For me, this kind of source has good practice, but I never could warrent making a hundred copies of something that would take the kids five minutes to do. This book provides fun exercises in necessary skills, and I can project a page up, and we can do it together in a game sort of format. I have only just gotten the book and used the first few pages, but students enjoyed doing them. I had them take notes from the tip page and then they had those to refer to as they did the puzzle. The notes are brief and clear and my 7th and 8th grade students didn't even grumble! I called on students randomly to answer questions. They could confer as teams before answering. I really like the format of the book because kids can take notes--(provided in the book) which are brief that they then use to their benefit for the activity. This is the type of book that you can pick and choose what you want to use, and there isn't a lot of preparation time needed to use it.

Fills an Important Need 10 Oct. 2008
By Daria Doering - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My students and I are enjoying this book, written at just the right level for middle school. It's a collection of standard grammar worksheets, but they are very doable, and the answers to each form a "secret word" (often a little-known historical figure, or animal), so there's a fun, puzzle-like aspect to them. Makes grammar about as painless as possible. Plus it's extremely difficult to find blackline masters to teach grammar rather than expensive workbooks.

This is a great tool for learning grammar 25 Sept. 2010
By Rebekah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We are a home school family and I purchased this book this year to save money over buying the expensive grammar/English program I normally buy. Each section has a good description in the teaching section; then there are several pages of worksheets for each section. The worksheets teach you a little something about a person, place or thing in history. Then you have to find the answer for the question it asks at the bottom of the page by answering all of the grammar questions correctly. My son is 12 and he really likes this book and enjoys finding out the answers to the questions and learning something new about history. I would recommend this to others!

Very helpful definitions and exercises 16 Feb. 2011
By Twilight Realm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We home school and this is an additional book for our grammar study. I have found many of the texts we use give inadequate definitions and really don't give much practice. These explanations of the parts of speech and their job in the sentence are short and clear. The exercises are useful for practice. I'm always attracted to the layout of a book, because I find that poor spacing and organization and make my job much more difficult especially with learning disabilities. This book has a clear layout with enough white space for easy reading and plenty of space to do the exercises. Since I am using this as an extra book, I give it five stars, though some people may want even more practice depending on your goals. It's a basic book and covers all the basic grammar skills a student in middle school needs.

not as expected 5 May 2013
By HDIN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This did give an overall review of grammar, if that is what you want. However, I wouldn't recommend using this as the only textbook. The tip sheets give basic information; then several worksheets follow for practice. The worksheets are designed to use multiple choice or matching answers. When the letters (that go with corresponding correct answer) are combined, the answer to a fun fact is given. Unfortunately, halfway through the worksheet, my son could figure out the answer at the bottom of the page; therefore, he was able to guess the answers to the grammar questions based on the word to be spelled out at the bottom of the page.
