Dr. Phillips wrote Easy Grammar texts (Grades 1-6 and Plus) to teach concepts. She first introduces common prepositions and deleting prepositional phrases to help students determine subject, verb agreement, etc. Phillips is also noted for introducing concepts at a basic level and building for understanding--in just two-three lessons daily. She has also added unit reviews/unit tests and cumulative reviews/cumulative tests to promote mastery.
The teacher edition contains teaching instructions, answer keys, and reproducible student pages. When you open the book, the answer key is on the left side and the student page is on the right. The student workbook would save you from having to make copies of those student pages in the teacher edition. Also, the tests are in the teacher edition. However, if you don’t want to make copies of the tests then you can get the student test booklet.
Students are asked to delete prepositional phrases in order to help understand other concepts. In addition to grammar concepts, capitalization, punctuation, sentence types, phrases/clauses and friendly/business letters are included. Ample practice worksheets are offered for each skill.
