Default Re: Grammar for "Morning time"/circle time/together time

Grammarland? (By Nesbitt) We read it out loud 3 or 4 years ago and did the exercises orally. Probably isn't enough for your older kids, though. It's available inexpensively on Amazon.

My two older girls do Winston Grammar - one is still on basic, the other started advanced this year. That might work pretty well in a group, now that I think about it. The younger kids can do the easier parts of speech, the older ones the more complicated. It's quite hands-on and uses "Clue Cards" to determine the parts of speech, and kids learn through repetition.

The Sentence Family is wonderfully creative and is written for a class, I think fourth grade? I bought it directly from St Michael's Orthodox school, but Rainbow Resource carries it now. It's organized a little differently from other texts - more whole-to-parts than other programs. It starts with types of sentences and there's a character for each one that you draw. (Mr. Declarative, etc.) The details of each picture define the details of each type of sentence and part of speech. You can even act things out.
