Language Arts Month - Grammar

Grammaropolis - Annual Home Account Subscription Only $14.50

Grammaropolis - Annual Home Account Subscription Only $14.50

Who says grammar can't be fun? Developed by Coert Borhees, a 7th grade grammar teacher, Grammaropolis is a new online curriculum for teaching parts of speech to children in grades 1-7 using animated characters starring in books, songs, videos, and interactive games and quizzes.

Each animated character represents a part of speech (Noun, Verb, Adverb, etc.), and lives in the city of Grammaropolis. The program also offers the new Punctuation Department, assessment/performance tracking and is designed to address varied learning styles.

Members save 50% on an Annual Home Account Subscription to Grammaropolis, which provides a one-year subscription for up to 10 children in the same family.

Analytical Grammar - Free Shipping and Bonus SmartPoints

Analytical Grammar - Free Shipping and Bonus SmartPoints

Would you like to give your students a solid foundation in grammar? Analytical Grammar is a Cathy Duffy 102 Top Pick and a respected source of grammar curriculum for homeschoolers.

Analytical Grammar uses a unique method of teaching grammar, which starts from "ground zero" and assumes that the student knows no grammar. The curriculum continues on from concept to concept, until the entire body of knowledge which we call grammar is covered. Since every concept is woven logically together with every other concept, there simply is no reason for endless repetition and drill.

Analytical Grammar doesn't give discounts. So, in order to give members the BEST DEAL ON THE PLANET, the Co-op is pleased to offer FREE Shipping AND BONUS SmartPoints (10 SmartPoints per dollar spent) that you can use to purchase other award-winning online curricula through the Co-op!

Fix It! Grammar - Free Shipping & Bonus SmartPoints

Fix It! Grammar - Free Shipping & Bonus SmartPoints

The Co-op is pleased to announce the BEST DEAL ANYWHERE for the acclaimed Fix It! Grammar series from the award-winning Institute for Excellence in Writing.

In contrast with analytical, traditional grammar curriculum, the Fix It! Grammar series takes a uniquely hands-on approach to teaching grammar. Students hunt for and correct errors in daily passages of fiction that cumulatively tell a story. Fix It! Grammar encourages students to immediately apply new grammar knowledge in context, aiding in the transfer of grammar skills into their own writing.

The Institute for Excellence in Writing does not allow their products to be discounted, but in order to ensure that Co-op members get the best deal anywhere for FixIt! Grammar, we are pleased to offer Free Shipping and Bonus SmartPoints with your purchase.
