How old?
Winston Grammar I heard it's good (but haven't used) .
MCT also . BJU English for some.
Any other grammar program works if the teacher explains concepts on a board first and underlines or writes with another color things that must be remembered.

Thanks! I'll check out Winston Grammar.

I have MCT, but I'm not sure it would work well. It seems to be so auditory based. I have BJU as well, but didn't like it so much for the writing portion. Wish they had the grammar all by itself.

I used Winston Grammar this last year for my 5th grade dyslexic daughter and it worked wonderfully. It is very thorough about explaining the different parts of speech.

These are my top 3 choices for grammar for my vsl. We're trying MCT town next year and I also have Winston grammar to try. After that I'll alternate with BJU english since I'm not sure I'd go with MCT voyage level material. I showed my ds samples of bju and he said he liked it because it had pictures. Not really sure the pics were necessary for the grammar but just a preference I guess.

I recently discovered a grammar curriculum for lower and mid-elementary that someone might be interested in:
http://www.mandalacl...r.html#anandsym

I found one of these booklets in the big bag of stuff one of my kids brought home from his montessori classroom last week. They write symbols above each word in the sentence to denote the part of speech. My ds's second grade booklet was Analyze and Symbolize, but I'm intrigued by Literature for Grammar, which has has three grade levels. While the levels are equated with grades 2, 3 and 4, the website notes that the upper level could be used as high as 6th grade.

Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there, for visual grammar :)
