New! Grade 4 Grammar and Writing and 2nd Edition for Grades 5-8>
Revised and updated to meet the Common Core State Standards for Language and Writing, Grammar and Writing 2nd Editions still provide the same model of incremental development and continual review as the 1st Editions but now include additional writing lessons.
Produced by Stephen Hake, co-author of the Saxon middle grades math books, and authored by Christie Curtis and Mary Hake, comes Grammar and Writing, a comprehensive language arts program based on the Saxon model of incremental development and continual review. Grammar and Writing covers English grammar, writing, spelling, punctuation, and vocabulary development. Embedded in the examples and exercises is content from other subject areas, so that students learn valuable knowledge while developing their English language skills.
Each Grammar and Writing kit includes three books, the Student Textbook, the Student Workbook, and the Teacher Packet. The Student Textbook contains lessons that instruct students on eight key grammar and usage concepts: capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, parts of speech, usage, spelling rules, and diagramming. The Student Workbook, which includes writing lessons and supplemental activities, systematically guides students through the writing process, enabling them to become confident, successful writers. The Teacher Packet allows parents to schedule their child’s year and monitor their progress. Answers to every question in the book are provided, as well as tests masters and test answers.
