LOE Essentials for grammar? in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted May 31, 2017 · Edited May 31, 2017 by celticadea First edition user also. There was not much grammar compared to when we started doing Growing With Grammar. Maybe it was an ok introduction. But there was not a lot of practice like a PP said, and no diagramming. Spelling instruction is excellent, though. Both my kids are great spellers and I credit LOE. When you did Growing with Grammar, did you just jump into the grade your kids were in? or start at the beginning? as I'm looking at Growing with Grammar more, I'm really liking it. Are you happy with it?
