    I'm embarrassed to say that I probably need to complete these punctuation packets myself as a grammar refresher. This age of informal writing, quick emails and text messages has reduced my recall of proper grammar rules to merely hazy memories. This resource contains packets of reproducible activities that review common grammar rules. Eight packets are included: Commas I, Commas II, Capital Letters I, Capital Letters II, End Punctuation, Apostrophes, Quotation Marks, and Colons and Semicolons. Each packet consists of six activities (each page introducing a specific punctuation rule) plus one tic-tac-toe review activity. The packets are self-paced in that the student checks off the worksheets as the packet is completed. There is also a good variety of worksheet activities, many of which are self-checking. For example, you may be asked to find and circle letters that need to be capitalized, and those circled letters should spell out the name of a holiday. 80 pgs. ~ Anh

    Just the right stuff! That's what you'll be thinking as you use this warm and inviting reading program from Memoria Press. The Study Guides are really a worktext (horizontal orientation) that provides the student with vocabulary and comprehension worksheets. The teacher needs to take a quick peek at two pages at the beginning that give the plan for the Word Study, Read, Comprehension, and Language (introductory grammar) segments of each lesson. The Just For Fun section is self-explanatory. There's writing involved (7/16" lines with dotted midline) but the top binding makes it easy for either right-handed students or lefties. The StoryTime guide covers five classic children's books in 16 lessons. More StoryTime provides another 16 lessons and seven children's books. ~ Janice

    This popular book by Jane Straus is both a reference guide for the rules of grammar and punctuation, but also a workbook that provides exercises to review those rules. The first 60 pages of the book contain the most common rules of grammar and punctuation. Topics include subject and verb agreement, pronouns, modifying parts of speech, problems with prepositions, fragments, commas, semicolons, parentheses, hyphens, dashes, capitalization, writing numbers, and much more-basically all the grammar rules you need to know in high school and college. The middle section of the book has over 60 pages of rules for commonly confused words like who vs. whom, that vs. which, good vs. well, etc. Along with each rule, there are one or two examples so students can see the rule put into practice. The final part of the book contains numerous quizzes (2 sets of exercises for each grammar topic or punctuation mark), as well as a grammar pretest, a grammar mastery test, and a punctuation, capitalization and writing numbers pretest and mastery test. The pretest and mastery tests given are great for before and after evaluation, and the exercises for each topic ensure that students know how to use the rules they are learning. Exercises generally prompt students to find errors in sentences, rewrite sentences, pick the correct word for the sentence, or identify parts of a sentence. These review methods are probably more effective at incorporating the rules into real life than multiple choice or matching exercises found in other books. Answers for all the exercises are included in the book. This is a great quick reference book with effective tests and exercises, and it is also well organized, practical, and easy-to-use. Reproducible. 201 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    In today's world of emails, texts and instant messaging, the use of proper language and communication skills is quickly being devalued and forgotten. However, whether realized or not, future employers, colleges, and even spouses will evaluate our young people on their ability to communicate clearly and effectively. This step-by-step, visual guide may be the perfect tool for teaching or re-teaching valuable language arts skills that produce skilled communicators. Covering the four core English Language Arts subjects-Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling and Communication Skills, this well-organized resource is visually appealing and clearly written. In the grammar section, students will review the purpose of grammar and parts of speech, as well as commonly misused words, negatives, idioms, analogies, figures of speech, colloquialisms, slang and much more. The punctuation section provides review of common punctuation signs as well as appropriate use of bullet points, numbers/dates, asterisks, italics and much more, including a brief look at the alternative use of other punctuation with Twitter®. Spelling covers alphabetical order. syllables, roots, prefixes and suffixes, homonyms, homophones, British and American spellings plus much more. The final section, Communication Skills, covers effective communication, paragraphing, layout, writing skills necessary for letters/ emails and the web, as well as writing essays and speeches. A final section offers a thorough reference guide for quick answers to common writing dilemmas. Interesting tidbits are scattered throughout. Personally, the discussion of how our language has changed intrigued me. For instance, decades ago I was taught the possessive of a word ending with "s" was "apostrophe," but it is more commonly accepted now to use "s apostrophe s"--compare "Jess' to Jess's" car. That is just the tip of the helpful information in this great resource. This would make a perfect supplement for media-saturated students or one who has shutdown from the monotony of endless drilling and diagramming. 256 pgs, sc. ~Deanne

    From the author of Latin Centered Curriculum (Memoria Press), this comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation provides a vast array of memorization material in all academic areas, as well as Latin and Greek. Weighing in at a hefty 450 plus pages, this book provides you ample choices for memory work, and has been designed for use with any classical curriculum or simply as a handy reference for home or school. At first glance, the sheer size of this book appears to be overwhelming. However, the author reminds us this book has been created to provide 13 years worth of memorization options and we simply integrate what we feel is the best selection.

    Beginning with the importance of memorizing, this detailed book takes you through the steps of how to memorize and includes general principles to make memory work easier; you are then set free to select memorization selections from a vast array of subject areas. Read on for more details! The Latin chapter is divided into six parts: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; Prayers; and Hymns and Carols. The first three sections contain mostly secular material, while the last three are religious. The Greek chapter is divided into five sections: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; and Prayers and Hymns. These selections are drawn from both classical and ecclesiastical Greek, and the author has also included some background information on Easter Christian traditions. Translations are provided throughout. The Arithmetic and Mathematics chapter includes an extensive resource selection, including (but not limited to): addition/subtraction fact families, properties and orders, prime numbers, multiplication table, Euclid's Definitions and Common Notions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. The Grammar and Composition chapter is designed to support the study of classical languages and to reinforce principles taught in your individual writing program. It includes grammar rhymes, grammar rules, and 100 commonly misspelled words. The Literature chapter contains five sections: Literary facts and lists; Sayings, Proverbs, and Famous Quotations, Teaching Rhymes, Poetry and dramatic speeches from Shakespeare's plays. The Religion chapter contains six sections: Scripture, Prayers, Catechism, Poetry, Hymns and Carols. Using the King James Version of the Bible, the religious selections include material drawn from the Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. The Geography chapter contains a large number of lists from both a World and US Geography perspective. The World History chapter covers events and personalities from around the globe, with the emphasis on those topics of enduring importance. Please note: dating encompasses an old earth perspective, dating back to 35,000 BC. The United States History and Civics chapter stresses key dates in American history, as well as the founding documents of our nation. Patriotic songs, verse and oratory are also included. The Natural Sciences chapter brings together lists and mnemonics for basic information in the natural sciences and is written primarily for elementary and middle school. It is best if the child memorizes material in this chapter, as it is encountered in their course of studies in the science curriculum of your choice. Extensive reference charts are found at the end of the book. These are meant for quick reference in Latin and Greek and are not meant to replace a Latin or Greek curriculum. They are, however, a good basis for Latin and Greek recitation.

    As you can see, this extensive resource book provides ample opportunities for memorization success. I was impressed with the extensive selection in each academic area, and believe this truly will be a valuable resource for families who desire to incorporate memorization from the classical perspective. 450 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    This reference provides a simple explanation of rules accompanied by clear examples for a variety of different punctuation marks. Starting with a brief look at the history and purpose of punctuation, the book is then organized into sections alphabetically, covering apostrophes, brackets, colons, commas, ellipses, em dashes, en dashes, exclamation points, parentheses, periods, question marks, semicolons, and slashes. Each section follows the same no-nonsense, black and white format. A rule for that type of punctuation is presented in bold type, followed by a few sentences illustrating that rule with the punctuation in bold. Any special notes for further clarification are included where appropriate. Recommended by the Institute for Excellence in Writing, this guide is helpful to read straight through or to keep on hand as a quick reference. 71 pgs, index included.

    A collection of 180 (one for each day of the typical school year) quick activities to teach, practice, and/or review commonly confused and misused words. Many homophones such as aisle/I'll/isle, boar/boor/bore, and their/there/they're as well as similar sounding word pairs like elicit/illicit and descent/dissent are covered. Additionally, several lessons on proper word choice are provided. Simple exercises will teach your child when to use (among others) fewer as opposed to less, literally instead of figuratively, and among instead of between. Although the provided exercises simply involve selecting the correct word to complete the sentence, each lesson includes an additional writing exercise suggestion. ~ Enh
