English Grammar Revolution

This commercial website, suggested by a Maryland ClickScholar, offers a selection of free, multi media exercises to help learn English grammar and parts of speech through diagramming sentences. Plus, it offers a free e-newsletter that brings grammar tips and puzzles right to your inbox.
This site was designed to help homeschool parents and classroom teachers become more confident grammar instructors. Again, it’s a commercial site, with some free content.
When you get to the site, you’ll see an introduction and information about the programs that are available for a fee. There are extensive samples of the lessons, exercises, and games contained in the program available for free.
To get started use the menu on the left and click on “Exercises.” A new page opens with free sample pages from the chapters of an ebook. Click on a chapter title to enjoy lessons and try activities that reinforce learning about:
- Sentence Diagramming
- Adjectives & Adverbs
- Prepositional Phrases
Throughout the samples you’ll find links to additional content that will boost your knowledge of English grammar as well. Continue exploring the menu to get good information on:
- Parts of Speech
- Sentence Structure
- Grammar Usage
You’ll even find some grammar games, cool quotes, and other fun and interesting stuff. If this text-heavy site gets a little overwhelming simply use the sitemap to access what you want.
BEST OF ALL: You can sign up to receive the FREE e-newsletter that includes fun grammar tips, sentence diagramming puzzles, and grammar lessons delivered to your inbox every other week. When you register you also receive The Parts of Speech Quick Guide (pdf).
