Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind, Purple Bundle (Paperback)

0<0
$55.90
 

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: One of our non-sequential workbooks, 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.
  • Key to the 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 read the reviews, and was about to purchase the purple books for grammar, are these updated with all the corrections so that I don’t have to refer to a different document? Thank you.

    • We strive to find and correct typos and errors on an ongoing basis, but even an updated version might include some that we (and our eagle-eyed customers!) missed. Plus, books in a bundle or series will not all be reprinted at the same time. We keep a detailed list of corrections that have been made since the original printing for all of our books, along with those we will make in future printings. You can access the list for the Purple bundle and other books at our Corrections page: https://welltrainedmind.com/corrections/?v=7516fd43adaa

  2. 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.

  3. Question

    Could you incorporate this curriculum into a group setting that meets once a week, and then school the rest of the week at home?

    • Yes, you could certainly do that!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.”

  6. Question

    Age of use? Examples of lessons?
