    Here's the junior version containing the same concise, organized, and helpful advice as the original Painless books, just geared toward a younger grade level. It will show kids that grammar doesn't have to be painful or scary, and can even be fun! The theme of the book is a pretend amusement park called Grammar World, where different animals introduce the reader to different aspects of grammar. There are five main chapters covering sentences, nouns, pronouns and adjectives, verbs and adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, and mechanics. Information is presented in a clear, organized way that is easy for students to follow. Plenty of "Let's Try It" sections provide quizzes to practice concepts just learned, "Trick to Remember" sections highlight important hints to keep in mind, "Treasure Hunt" areas prompt students to find examples of certain topics, "Careful" sections warn students of possible problems, "Treasure Chest" sections give examples of certain topics, "Wrapping It Up" gives a summary of key ideas, and "Hitting the Target" provides practice with the chapter's ideas. Two-colored illustrations add some fun to the learning. The guide is written directly to students so they can learn and practice the concepts independently. Answers to the practice sections are included in the back of the book. 158 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    You know an approach to grammar is different when students and teachers are giggling. Indeed, Jane Kiester's 10-step approach to teaching grammar is rather amusing, with the bonus of being extremely effective, which certainly sets it apart from many other grammar books! How does Jane keep her classes giggling through grammar? The Caught'ya. In essence, the Caught'ya is one or two sentences of a continuous, humorous story, filled with grammar errors that the teacher wants to eliminate. In this book, Jane walks you through how the Caught'ya works and exactly how to integrate this approach in your own classroom. She starts by "inviting" you into her classroom to see how she uses the Caught'ya and then breaks down the process into ten easy steps. Ten steps may sound intimidating, but each one is a very small piece and the entire task only takes 5-10 minutes a day. In short, the ten steps consist of composing the daily Caught'ya sentence by deciding on a plot, the skills and a vocabulary word to address that day, writing the sentence down incorrectly on the board and critiquing students as they copy the Caught'ya on their own paper correctly, and concluding by checking the sentence together with the whole class, then having the students mark their mistakes, count up their own errors, and turn in their work. The complete, detailed explanations of each step are found in chapter 2. The third chapter focuses on how to evaluate the Caught'ya, with thorough directions on checking and grading the content as well as the format, using real student's Caught'yas as examples. Chapter 4 goes beyond the basics and describes how to use Caught'yas as a tool to teach other grammar skills such as spelling, diagramming sentences, and writing, among other tips. This chapter also holds sample spelling practices and Caught'ya grammar tests with answer keys. Assuming that many teachers may find the idea of creating their own funny story plot and outline a bit daunting, Jane includes six sample story ideas in chapter 5, two each for elementary, middle, and high school classes, tried and very successful in classrooms. These suggestions serve as a plot for you to flesh out through your daily Caught'ya sentences, each one offering a tidbit of the funny tale to anticipating students. If the task of writing your own sentences based on a given outline still sounds too hard, then you'll appreciate chapters 6-8, which each hold 100 daily Caught'ya sentences for your use until you are comfortable writing them yourself. Each of these chapters holds sentences for one of the sample stories from each grade level and gives you the passage written incorrectly and correctly, with the skills covered and vocabulary word. With her helpful, personal writing style, Jane Keister leaves you encouraged and fully prepared to "catch" your own giggling grammar students. ~ Steph

    This workbook, formerly titled Grammar the Easy Way, is full of instruction and exercises for a very thorough review of English grammar. It begins simply with sentences, parts of speech, and phrases and clauses but quickly expands to cover all the meticulous details of grammar taught in high school. After the first section (which includes many aspects and tenses of the sentence, parts of speech, phrases, clauses, and verbs), there is an "exam" to evaluate if students can identify components like an adjective clause, gerund phrase, infinitive, predicate adjective, etc. within a given story. The next section gets noticeably more difficult with instruction on types of sentences, coordination and subordination, reference of pronouns, subject-verb agreement, parallel structure, misplaced modifiers, sentence variety, and more. Another "exam" is then given, which is cumulative and instructs students to identify if a sentence is correct, lacks parallel structure, has a dangling modifier, is a fragment, lacks agreement, and so on. The final section includes a "Manual of Usage" which assembles together grammar rules that are most often problems in high school and college papers and gives a usage test. The last section focuses on writing; specifically writing paragraphs, writing research papers, developing style, and preparing for writing during the SAT. Tips are included for the proper way to construct and format writing while using good grammar. After the third section, a cumulative exam is given which includes one hundred sentences. Students must select from an answer bank and decide if each sentence is correct or if it has errors such as a misplaced modifier, lack of agreement, fragment, usage mistake, redundancy, etc. With lots of examples of correct grammar and simple but effective exercises, the book guarantees to improve your grammar and writing in only 30 days. ~ Rachel
