We are spending a couple of weeks on grammar rules again. We are going to review some of the basic rules about capitalization. This should be fairly straight-forward for my older two. Some of this will be new for ED, so I’ll sit down with her to work on these together.
Some of the rules we’re covering include:
Plus, we’ll also go over examples of proper nouns (people’s names, countries, continents, landforms, political parties, etc. etc.)
Hope you find these helpful! These are free to download! ~Liesl
In addition to our free grammar worksheets, we have also been using the Write Source Skills Books for years. They provide some basic grammar rules and are straight forward. I have found that I need to supplement these (with our own sheets) as I spot problems in their writing, but I’m quite happy with these, especially at the price (below $10). Amazon carries them and here a link to one of the books, Write Source: Skillbook Grade 5, (affiliate link). ED is finishing up the Grade 2 Skillsbook: Write source Skills Book (affiliate link).
The other book that we have used in the past year or so are the Editor in Chief® books by the Critical Thinking Company. (affiliate link). I really like these books because they have a short paragraph and tell the kids exactly what kind and how many errors to look for. And, these books, unlike the SkillsBook above provide the answers in the back so the kids can check their own work.

Here are some of the other FREE language arts related materials I’ve made for the kids. I’ve made the kids a number of Grammar Practice Sheets over the years.
