Haiku Posted July 26, 2008 Share Posted July 26, 2008 Years ago, when my daughter was a toddler (and before I knew about WTM), I discovered Primary Language Lessons (PLL) and was very interested in it. I had planned to use it with my daughter if we ever did grammar. Yesterday I gave my daughter the K12 reading placement test just for my own curiosity (we have no plans to use K12). She did very well on it but was placed in K (she's actually in first) because she was tripped up by the "grammar" aspects. For example, when she wrote her dictation sentences, she did not use punctuation and wrote them in all caps, so she got no points for that section. I'm not very worried about this. She's only six. But it made me wonder whether I should start doing grammar with her. I hadn't planned to do it until 2nd or 3rd grade and I was going to use PLL. I started looking at some other grammar programs for younger kids, just to see what's out there. Both Growing with Grammar (GWG) and Language Lessons for the Very Young (LLVY) look interesting to me. My questions are: 1) Should I start grammar now or should I not worry about it until she's older and then use PLL? 2) If I start now, which program would you recommend? GWG looks secular and LLVY looks very conservatively Christian. Is this actually the case? Thanks! Tara Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
