Wow! The author has done a fantastic job presenting the information on grammar with visuals and interactive components. Each section of grammar; nouns, adverbs, verbs, and adjectives was carefully organized and laid out so that the user could clearly distinguish between each one. For each type of word, the information was relevant and appropriate for the grade level. Each word provided specific examples and then allowed the user to assess their grasp and knowledge of each type of word. The assessments gave clear answers and the flow was never interupted by a wrong answer. The author has created an outstanding product that should be very useful for those being introduced to proper grammar. The only thing that may be missing is an objective page, but the introduction clearly implies that the objective is to learn the four types of words, so an objective page may be a bit redudant. Overall, this stand alone instructional resourse has great flow, excellent information, fantastic examples, and a user-friendly platform. Outstanding!

This stand-alone presentation on the four main parts of speech (noun, verb, adverb, and adjective) has clearly defined standards and target audience. The theme is age appropriate and the author taken photos from the Denver botanical gardens are a perfect touch. Not only are the links to the corresponding Grammar Rocks video clips informative and instructive, they offer a bit of nostalgia for the teacher and parent. I have come to find that those videos are still relevant, entertaining, and extremely useful even in high school. One small correction would be the inclusion of ideas in the “nouns’ definition. Also, it might be better if the topic of Pronouns is avoided due to them serving the identical purpose of Nouns, though that may be over the heads of the lesson’s intended audience. The use of the same sentence as an example is a brilliant touch. The repetition is effective in its simplicity and clearly shows the student the connections the parts of speech have to each other.
