    Highly recommended

    I'm very impressed with this book. It has many hands-on activities for teaching grammar. This is such an easy book to use that I'm ordering the book by the same author with hand-on activities for teaching elements of literature.

    This book is more appropriate for elementary grades. The activities are all out of context and deal with only very basic concepts of identifying nouns and verbs, kind of sentences, and of repairing fragments and run-ons.
