    My son will be in 4th grade this Fall.  In 2nd grade I did First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind, level 1 and then stopped.  He was bored and I was bored with it.  I haven’t done much grammar with him other than that.  I would like to start with him now.  Im looking at Queen Homeschool Language Lessons and Learning Language Arts Through Literature. Does anyone have any feedback on these?


    Also, does anyone have any other curr for Grammar for a 4th grader that they would recommend?


    My suggestion would be English Lessons Through Literature by Kathy Jo DeVore.  Her products are extremely well organized, thorough, easy to understand from a parent/teacher perspective, reasonably priced and VERY pleasant for the child!


    I recently found and I will be using it this year. It is a gentle method without all the repetitiveness of FFL, which I used last year for both my kids. 

    The biggest draw I had to this particular one is that the grammar can be as easy or complicated as you choose or feel your son can handle. I like the color coding and I think the working with each part of speech for a month will help transfer the info from short term to long term memory, which is a big thing for my son. He can handle short term memory things easy peasy, but ask him to do the same assignment a couple weeks later and he will look at it ans say he has never seen it before! Being that grammar is so boring, he tends to let it go in one ear and out the other…LOL 

    Not trying to turn you away from the other options, just wanted to offer one that I happened to stumble upon. 


    I like Queen’s LL. It works well independently also. LL has been labeled as light on grammar. It is a gentle introduction.

    I have used Simply Grammar and like it as an introduction for this age.

    My plan this year is Winston Grammar for my 5th and 7th grader. I am hoping their cards will make it easily understandable and fun.
