This workbook lays a foundation for effective communication with the English language. Students will learn the basics of English grammar, including the definition and usage of the eight parts of speech. In addition, students will examine how these parts are to be properly used in phrases, clauses, and sentences. Correct sentence structure, diagramming, pronoun usage, and forming good paragraphs are also emphasized.

I like this approach very much. It is dry, no fancy pictures, but it teaches what a student needs to know.
First, this book needs a teacher's manual so that the teacher can further explain the concepts introduced. We have been struggling with this all semester, and both my student and I hate it. The only benefit is that the lessons are shorter than in other books.
I must admit, I'm disappointed with this book. I feel that a book listed as the 1st book in the series, there should be most of an explanation about the different parts of speech as they are introduced. If they are assuming this has been covered before, I apologize for this comment.
I like this book very well. I think it gives excellent opportunities to learn each lesson/concept.
I used several different spelling books in school and they were forgetable at best. Spelling was also not taught at this grade level, when and where I went to school.
Since I began home schooling, I have been using Spectrum. Their spelling books are alright, but they only go up to grade 6. I like this for a grade 7 speller because it explains so much about the words and gives relevent exercises that help beyond learning how to spell.
