Course Description:

We will be tackling grammar through Easy Grammar 10, along with spelling and vocabulary, using Word Roots and English from the Roots Up Volume 2. These three resources will give your student(s) a great foundation and/or help them review and brush up on their grammar and spelling skills.

Each week students will learn five Latin and/or Greek root words, along 10-15 spelling and vocabulary words based on the root words. We will also be learning spelling expectancies, to help us overcome common spelling errors.  There will be weekly spelling/vocabulary quizzes.

We will also cover 5 lessons of Easy Grammar each week, which will allow students to review grammar principles while learning and practicing new concepts. Easy Grammar is not a traditional grammar program. Instead, students learn to apply grammar rules in bite-sized 10-15 minute lessons. This method not only teaches grammar, but helps students to become better writers and eventually prepare for high school and standardized tests like the SAT/ACT. Students will need to complete days 2 -5 of the Easy Grammar activities at home each week. Each lesson/worksheet is designed to take about 10 minutes.

Students will have 20-30 minutes of homework each day in order to complete their grammar and  roots/spelling/vocabulary words.

Your student will need the Easy Grammar 10 student text. This can be ordered from multiple sources, including ChristianBook.com. I will provide the spelling and vocabulary materials for this class. An unabridged dictionary would be helpful.

This is a year- long class with payment due at the beginning of each semester.

Min. 5 / Max: 18

I will be taking an enrollment fee of $25 along with the $25 supply fee. The enrollment fee is included in the price of the tuition. You would only owe $100 for the remainder of the first semester and $125 for the second semester. Both the enrollment fee and supply fee are non-refundable.

If you have a student with special needs, please contact the teacher directly to discuss.
