Excellent training in the rules of grammar for the elementary school child. A full unit each on sentences (including capitalization, punctuation, run-ons and fragments, types of sentences), nouns (including pronouns), verbs (including forms of 'be' and linking and helping verbs), adjectives and adverbs, and language (including homonyms, synonyms, antonyms, beginning writing including descriptions and letters, spoken language, and poetry). Builds a superb foundation in the use of our language, and prepares children for professional - and social - communication. Highly recommended for the homeschooling family.
Third grade text from R&S's excellent English series. My children enjoyed learning from it and asked me to buy Rod and Staff's English again for next year.
