I'm working on an outline for my daughter's school year this coming year and I'm wondering what is everyone's choice for 5th or 6th grade grammar.

Dd15 went through Analytical Grammar over 1 1/2 years and I was very pleased with the straightforward, no fluff presentation of skills.  The explanations were clear and to the point, and there was enough review due to the requirement to parse all known parts of speech in every lesson.  We didn't need to do all the diagramming but I was glad to have it for those times when we did.  The paraphrasing exercises were also invaluable for this particular child. 

 

Based on my experience with this program I plan to have the remainder of my dc study grammar informally through composition from 3rd to 5th and then start AG in 6th grade.

Funny you should ask. I had planned to go through Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation, but just picking it up and looking through it convinces me that this book is better used as a reference. It looks so boring. I know DS10 (next fall 11 in 6th) will like Voyages in English much better. He liked this in 3rd. Thus, I have switched us to Voyages in English 6.

My dd has just finished up with CLE 5, and now is doing EIW, which has grammar instructions in the first part of the program, and then switches to writing.

 

She is really enjoying it, as CLE was getting a bit tedious towards the end of that year.
