Grammar Land

Here is a fun grammar resource we have been reading,
Grammar-Land by M.L. Nesbitt.
The book is about
Judge Grammar and his nine parts of speech.
There is a rich Mr. Noun, a busy Dr. Verb, a ragged Article, etc.
A very whimsical book written in 1878.
Written to help children understand the nine parts of speech
without being too bored.
We are reading a chapter and doing the exercise
suggestions at the end of each chapter.
My son is enjoying the stories.
And yes, the stories have made learning
about the nine parts of speech fun.
No yawning noted.

You can download it free here and here.
Can purchase it here.

Downloaded our copy from homeschool freebie.
Wonderful site, by the way.

Another site to get free book downloads is
Baldwin Online Children's Literature Project.
(bringing yesterday's classics to today's children).
They did not have Grammarland, yet.

A Website

We love Thornton W. Burgess books.
These are great nature read aloud books.
Was told about this website recently
and had to share.
A great place to purchase Burgess
paperback books for around $2.50.
So wished we lived close to this society because
we would definitely visit and take advantage
of the programs they offer.

Many blessings

Brotherly Love

They fight, they wrestle, they pester,
but mostly
they love each other.

Caught these pictures of two of my boys
playing, smiling,
and getting wet.

Many blessings.
