At the third grade level your child will be introduced to Easy Grammar. Easy Grammar texts use the prepositional approach combined with effective strategies. This helps students to understand grammar, a tool for speaking and writing properly. Students use a "hands on" approach (deleting/marking). It is a simplistic, easy to understand way to make learning meaningful. Students learn correct usage and why that usage is appropriate. Students use concepts learned in capitalization, punctuation, and other areas on a daily basis. This process promotes mastery learning. www.easygrammar.com
