Product Overview

Each year, parents and teachers go through the scripted dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text. Instructor notes thoroughly explain any ambiguities and how to handle concepts that the student may find difficult. Scripted lessons and step-by-step instruction take students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts such as modal verbs and multiple functions of noun clauses, while extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules (and are a great help to technical and visual learners).

Text for examples and exercises are drawn from great works of literature, as well as from well-written nonfiction texts in science, mathematics, and the social sciences. The program is easily customizable to each student’s strengths and weaknesses, and regular review leads to mastery. Students follow along and do the exercises in the required workbook (workbooks are not sequential and you may begin with any color; see workbook product descriptions for more details).

    We’ve been using the free sample and it is perfect for 10th grade after a Charlotte Mason gentle grammar in elementary and middle school.

    Is this a curriculum that could be implemented in a classroom setting?

    Easy to use

    Denise Taylor

    Very teacher friendly. Easy for me to instruct kiddos with. Grammar is not my strength. I am thankful for this curriculum. My children enjoy this grammar. Previous curriculum they have loathed.

  7. Question

    Rebekah

    I am trying to figure out how the well-trained mind grammar books work. How do I know which color book my child needs? I’m not sure which book is usually first and which is usually last.

  8. Question

    Jennifer Nasso

    After completion of FLL 3 & 4, what is the recommended age/grade to start the colored Grammar workbooks? Is there an updated chart that includes the new yellow book?

      We don’t recommend starting GftWTM any earlier than fifth grade, and many middle schoolers will not complete an entire workbook in one year. If a fifth-grader only makes it through the Basic Grammar section or a little beyond, that is fine. Seventh- and eighth-graders will move more quickly, particularly if they have already used GftWTM.

      If they are also beginning a rigorous writing program like Writing With Skill Level 1, Instructor Text, you might want to take that into consideration, and plan from the beginning to complete only Basic Grammar. Logic stage is a big jump from elementary, and some students get overwhelmed.

      The existing chart is just meant to serve as an example, but I will pass on the request for an updated one.
