Homeschool Curriculum Review: Beowulf Grammar





First off I want to start off by saying Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you all are enjoying some great food and time with your familes. Now time for a review! 

I am so pleased to share with you my thoughts about this fantastic curriculum. This is our first year homeschooling and as I've said before on the blog, my son is autistic and it takes a lot to get him to write or listen to a grammar lesson. Beowulf's Grammar is the perfect solution for us.


When I first started looking into homeschooling Braxton I wasn't sure what I was going to use for LA and Grammar, since both of these are required in the state we live. I knew they needed to be short lessons that would hold his attention and luckily for us I found the Guest Hollow website. I will say that these amazing people were nice enough to donate this curriculum to us to use for an honest review.


My son has loved this curriculum and I love that it's shorter lessons and easy to teach. He's caught on very quickly and he really enjoys the funny stories. Now inside Beowulf, there are things like comic strips, fun little craft like pages and easy to write lessons. Beowulf's Grammar was created by a homeschool mom and that is another reason I love it. It's been tried by several of my friends as well and the reviews are spectacular.


At the beginning of this grammar program your child gets to make Beowulf himself and they get to make a box for him to stay in. The best part of this is that I as the teacher gets to use this little object he made as a special prize box for him. Now, this isn't each and every day, but I leave little notes from Beowulf inside or encouraging notes from me. My son gets a kick out of it and loves seeing what's going to be inside the box.


The other thing I really enjoy about this curriculum is that it's really at your own pace. There is a guide in the beginning, but I've found that sometimes it's a little too slow or a little too fast for my son, so we just go at our own pace. The best thing about this program is that it goes along with their other Language arts program and you can use them together. Which is exactly what we do. (Review of that curriculum coming soon!)


All in all, I love Beowulf's Grammar and would recommend it to anyone that's looking for a great grammar curriculum.
