Daily GRAMS texts (Grades 3-7) were designed as daily, 5-10-minute reviews (180 lessons). Dr. Wanda Phillips developed a consistent format focusing on capitalization (#1), punctuation (#2), grammar and other concepts (#3/4), and sentence combining (#5) for improved quality of writing. The process of reviewing concepts cyclically (rotationally) enhances mastery. Phillips recommends starting each class period with a review lesson.
The teacher text has the reproducible student pages in the front of the book and the answers in the back. This is the only book you need if you have one child (the child can write directly in the book). If you have more than one child and don’t want to make copies then you can get the student workbook.
The purpose of Daily GRAMS: GUIDED REVIEW AIDING MASTERY SKILLS is to provide students with daily review of their language. Review of concepts helps to promote mastery learning.
This particular text offers more “teaching” than some Daily GRAMS books. However, this text is not a teaching text; it has been specifically designed for review. As in other Daily GRAMS texts, concepts are usually repeated within twenty-five to thirty days.
