My favorite subject in school was anything related to English. I loved Grammar rules, spelling, and writing. However,when I became a homeschool mom, teaching Grammar was a lot harder than I expected. In addition, I struggled with why my kids needed to learn Grammar Rules at such a young age when they would understand it faster at the middle school level.
I am excited to announce that I found the PERFECT solution for teaching Grammar to kids who didn’t get a solid foundation of Grammar Rules like mine. It’s GrammarPlanet!
GrammarPlanet is designed for ages 10 and up and can be used for a wide range of students, from young to old. GrammarPlanet assumes the student has had no training in Grammar Rules so it starts from the basics and builds from there.
If you are looking to boost your child’s writing skills or test scores, keep GrammarPlanet in mind. It’s a fully inclusive online Language Arts curriculum that teaches grammar, punctuation, and usage. There are currently 13 units available with new units being added weekly.
GRAMMAR PLANET ONLINE REVIEW
We have been using GrammarPlanet for my 11 and 13 year old and love how it’s simplicity designed for kids to use, and adults as well. When you first log in, you’ll get 4 steps of instructions on how to start. Click on the orange icon on the left hand corner to download the instructions. Then, watch the video. Answer a few questions. Now, it’s time for practice and wrap up with a quiz.
With GrammarPlanet, a PDF printable set of notes is also included that the student can download. Additional activities are used to reinforce the lesson being taught in the video, and will not let the student continue until the subject at hand is mastered. There are no time limits and students can replay the materials if they don’t understand it the first time.
My favorite part about GrammarPlanet is getting the notifications directly into my email box on how my student is progressing, whether it’s good or bad. Plus, I get an alert when my daughter or son is completed with the quiz along with his/her scores.
There is one issue we had in the beginning. We had a hard time getting into the student accounts as I didn’t realize I had to log out of my account first. Then, once I remembered the user ids and passwords I set up for students, it was a breeze from there.
And, every once in awhile, we do get a blank screen after finishing certain parts of the questions or quiz. Thankfully, we just go back in and continue our progress. We haven’t lost any work yet, so we don’t consider it a huge challenge to get back into where we left off.
We plan on continuing to use GrammarPlanet throughout the school year since it’s user-friendly,challenging, and allows my kids to be independent.
If your looking for a great resource that’s free and challenging yet easy to use, try GrammarPlanet today!
