Connie, do you have a chapter by chapter breakdown of what is included? It states that your preview shows Chapter 1, but what I actually see is Chapter 5 on prepositions. I'm very interested in purchasing this for my 6th graders this fall, but I want to make sure it's a good fit. Thanks for your help!

Would this be appropriate for 5th graders too? I teach in K-6 school with a lot of ELL students.

Quite a few teachers have used Grammar Made Easy (GME) with 5th graders. When asked about the book, I suggest using most of the chapters but skipping the chapters on clauses and participial phrases, as well as the last chapter in the book. The rest of the chapters will lay a good foundation in grammar, particularly for your ELL students. All the best. Let me know if I can be of further service. cs

In talking to another homeschooling mom, she mentioned that she had found someone who would grade two papers a month for $20 or so. I remember her mentioning this in conection with Grammar Made Easy. Was that you? If so, what are your terms?
Thank You,
Beth

Hi,
Yes, I'm the writing coach, thank you for asking. The short answer to your question is that I edit 2 papers/essays per month for $20 for middle schoolers and $30 for high schoolers. For this, I read and respond to one draft and one final version per paper; thus, each paper is handled twice. I offer remarks on organization, grammar, and mechanics. -- Email is my friend, so I send & receive papers through my account, which is cschenkelberg@comcast.net.

Feel free to call me at 703.878.4280.

And if you'll send me your email address, I'll send you the document I use with my writing students. One more thing, I offer family rates if you have more than one student.

Thanks again for contacting me. I look forward to hearing from you. cs

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

* Prince William County Schools, VA. 6th and 7th grade LA and history teacher. Also grant proposal writer. 1990 - 1999. 2005 - 2008. * CACI, Chantilly, VA. Technical writer for computer software company, 1999 - 2005. * Canton (MS) Public Schools. 7th grade LA teacher. 1987 - 1990 * Bay County (FL) Public Schools. HS English teacher. 1982 - 1984. * Ouachita (LA) Christian School. English and social studies teacher. 1978- 1979.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My LA teaching style is a blend of old and new. I feel that students need a good foundation in the basics of our language. As a result, I teach grammar, homonyms, and analogies. These lessons pay great dividends in student writing when I teach essays and research papers. Then for literature, I blend several strategies to develop a love of reading in my students. These techniques include hands-on activities, independent reading, group reading, and literature circles. With my middle school history classes, I searched for nitty-gritty details that would make history come to life. Techniques included unit studies and story telling.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

* Numerous Certificates of Achievement from Prince William County Schools in recognition of my work in grant writing. * IBM and Teacher Magazine Teacher of the Year (one of four state-level winners for Virginia).
