Making grammer fun: Words are CATegorical

Do you need a way to supplement your grammar or math program? Are your kids getting tired of workbooks and worksheets? Is your child having trouble remembering the difference between an adverb and an adjective or a noun and pronoun? Can you have fun and learn at the same time? If you said yes to any of these, I have a great thing for you, the Words are CATegorical series of books by Brian P. Cleary.

These books are great fun! My son loves them and I will be introducing them to my daughter for 2nd grade this year. They are available in hard or soft cover. Through silly rhymes and crazy illustrations, kids learn the basics of grammar. There are also available for math and language arts. He just read the title list and is begging for me to get more. The great thing is that since they are sooo silly, they stick with the kids better than a dull explanation would.
