CW Homer and Growing with Grammar...

Dee in MI

Recommended Posts

I know you guys will probably tell me, "It's OK", but I've just got to ask. We are more than halfway through GWG 5 and on Monday we will be starting Homer A. GWG has not taught participles, and won't in sixth grade either. (I know what they are, but I couldn't diagram them without looking it up. I have Warriner's on hand as a diagramming resource.)


I don't have to teach my son participles for some time, right? I can just continue as I have been with GWG?

I was just coming on the board to ask this question. Anyone??


By the way, participles ARE covered in GWG 5-pg 109 of the student reader. I'm also using GWG and am hoping that it will be okay to use with it (also doing latin)

Just did Participles today (dont' ask me what they are thought.) We are just learning them in Harvey's but I can't answer your question. I really don't like Harvey's I'm realizing. It is so sparse! We used GWG last year and my daughter loved it so much better. I just went with Harvey's because it was recommended but I'm finding it tough. I think if the teacher knows the grammar it might be a good reference book but for teaching? Not. I'm considering switching back to GWG next year (my daughter says she'll kiss it!) I don't know how well it will work with Homer's however. We are finding it difficult this year, I'm not sure switching grammar will help. But then again, I didn't find them very coordinated. Maybe I'm missing something. Sorry this probably didn't help but I thought I'd share my experience.
