For that reason, I chose to teach a grammar program one time, and I used Winston Grammar. After we completed that program, my children were able to understand the vocabulary of writing (noun, pronoun, adverb, etc.) After that, we focused on the grammar they needed for the SAT and ACT.
Grammar is a necessary component in English, but that doesn't mean you have to buy a book. You can teach grammar in the context of writing, by saying "that doesn't sound right, does it?" Our study of grammar allowed this test to be all that we needed. It filled in any gaps that we had by teaching grammar naturally through writing.
I've recently been connecting with friends on LinkedIn. I invite you to send me an invitation if you want to connect with my business.
