You may notice that the Workbooks and Keys for this curriculum are now named by color (“Purple Workbook”) rather than by year (“Year 1”). That’s to help you understand that you can use these workbooks in any order. It’s a four-year cycle but the books can be done in any order. The Core Instructor Text still provides the instructions for all four years.
If you have one of the older copies that says “Workbook 1” instead of “Purple Workbook,” don’t worry; the content is still the same.

Contains the following components of the Grammar For the Well-Trained Mind Curriculum. If you already own the Instructor Text, and just need the student material for the Purple Books, this is the bundle for you.

  • Workbook: The first of a four-book series, the Purple Workbook provides detailed exercises in the correct use of English grammar, based on great works of literature as well as classic and contemporary works of science and history. Future Workbooks will contain the same rules and examples—but completely different sets of exercises, allowing students to develop a wide-ranging knowledge of how the rules and examples are used in writing.
  • Answer Key for Purple Workbook: The Answer Key provides clear answers and explanations for the parent/instructor.

Instructor Text sold separately. The Instructor Text is necessary for teaching with the Purple Books.

  1. Question

    I have the purple workbook answer key and have found many incorrect answers in it! Do you have a document somewhere noting all the typo’s or actualy corrections in it? thanks!

    • We apologize for those typos. Lists of corrections can be found at https://welltrainedmind.com/corrections/ and we update those lists as often as we can.

    • Yes, you could certainly do that!

  3. Question

    How many weeks of lessons are there – hoping there are 36 that would coordinate with our school year. Would I be able to teach from both the Purple and Red books with a combination class of seventh and eighth graders? I’m hoping the lessons are the same, with the exercises being different. Thank you!

    • There are 36 weeks of lessons. The lessons in the Purple and Red Workbooks are the same (taught from the Core Instructor Text) but the exercises are different. For 95% of the lessons, you could do it in the way you’ve described here. There are two or three lessons where the content varies and is found in the Key for that year, rather than in the Core Instructor Text. But you’d be able to prepare for that.

  4. Question

    Is the second year student workbook available for the 4 year program? I have the core instructor book and the first year student workbook and key.

    • The second workbook (“Red Workbook”) is coming in just a few weeks (sometime in October). In a few days, we’ll be sending out a large sample with the first several weeks of lessons from the student workbook and its answer key, so that people can get started. That email will go to everyone on our newsletter list.

  5. Question

    I’m looking for the 7th grade version – not the first level. Is this available? My son has just completed a rigorous 6th grade grammar program (Hake Grammar) and would like something that isn’t SO much review rather than new content. Would this program with just the 1st level (purple) books meet his needs?

    • The next workbook & key (“Red Workbook” and “Red Key”) will be coming out in September. We hope to post samples soon. It is going to cover essentially the same topics as the purple workbook, but with different examples/exercises.

  6. Question

    If my child is in first grade am I supposed to start with “Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind” or “First Language Lessons”?

    • Your child should start with “First Language Lessons, Level 1.”

  7. Question

    Age of use? Examples of lessons?
