This is the digital edition of Simple Steps to Sentence Sense.  I wrote it expressly for younger students and for students who are learning English as a second language. This is the easy way to teach and to learn grammar and usage.

If you have tried to use a grammar text lately, you know it can be overwhelming. Even if you do figure out where to begin, the practice exercises often contain sentences that are difficult and confusing to students. This digital workbook is different. Charlene Tess's method of teaching grammar is easy for the teacher and the students to use.

It contains carefully constructed sentences that incorporate only the elements that have been introduced to that point in the program. This eliminates the frustration students and teachers often feel while using a standard textbook.

The lessons you will present are succinct. It is important that you follow the five steps in this book in sequence. Do not go on to the next lesson until you are sure your students have mastered each concept.

The Writing Connection pages in each step provide practice in usage skills and writing original sentences. And the answers are included for the teacher's convenience.

Note: This workbook will help your students become proficient at analyzing simple sentences that contain one independent clause. Compound, complex, and compound/complex sentences are included in the middle school and high school editions.
