Grammar Island introduces, in very simple fashion, the full four-level grammar of (1) parts of speech, (2) parts of sentences, (3) phrases, and (4) clauses.
Using color to reinforce the lessons, the book offers grammar in child-friendly ways, with an array of strategies to make sophisticated material alive and fun. Features interactive reviews and practice problems.
Each page focuses on a single concept, and the teaching approach is to read together with kids, talk about the concepts, ask questions, refer back, and respond to questions before venturing further. A book to delight students just beginning grammar.

Great. My DS9 loved, and would request it daily
Very effective. My son is 9 and I homeschooled him in Grade 3 this past year and used this iBook as our grammar component. He lIked the interactive sentences drag and drop, sort of a mad-lib to experiment with constructing sentences while understanding the grammatical components. My son really liked MCTs audio recordings of passages (it wasn’t my thing... but as long as it keeps him learning...). We’ll be buying Sentence Island next.
