Confes­sion: Home­school­ing is a great excuse for buy­ing cool stuff I wish I’d got­ten to play—um, learn—with as a kid. But as our kids out­grow some things, I guess I’ll have to just push them on oth­er peo­ple for their kids. Or maybe I could start writ­ing reviews some­where? There’s an excuse. Right. Because, and yes I know it’s real­ly geeky, I love this stuff.

I’m find­ing myself REALLY want­i­ng to try out Win­ston Gram­mar. I’ve tru­ly despaired of find­ing a good way to help lit­tle­fire­fae work on her lan­guage mechan­ics, and this looks like it might be right up her alley. It’s designed to be “mul­ti-sen­so­ry” and it sounds intrigu­ing. shad­owkatt has no prob­lem with writ­ing with prop­er mechan­ics, but could use some drill on for­mal grammar.

I find it very dif­fi­cult to buy gram­mar mate­r­i­al from a site that says some­thing is “Designed to give stu­den­t’s an under­stand­ing of the struc­ture of our lan­guage and tra­di­tion­al gram­mar.” So if I buy, it’ll be from some­one else.

Mag­net­ic Kid­Words sound fun, too!
