We used your curriculum when it was on DVD for our 2 oldest daughters. When our oldest went to college they were blown away by how well trained she was. Our daughter actually believes they “dumbed her down” and her writings became more rigid and less creative. Even her co-workers at the hospital doing help[…]
I homeschool my son and we have completed The Basic Cozy Punctuation Course. This is a great course and we really enjoyed it. It is a very gentle way to learn punctuation. Marie uses road signs as visuals to help learn the punctuation marks and my son said that he would never forget them. This course[…]
At the beginning of this year, I stumbled onto a very unique English curriculum – the Basic Cozy Grammar and Basic Cozy Punctuation courses, an award-winning series of relaxed English grammar and punctuation tutorials prepared as living textbooks. After a little research (do a Google for either course and you’ll find a number of excellent reviews) I[…]
Looking for an alternative or supplement to language arts workbooks that will entertain and educate your children? Well, my children and I have thoroughly enjoyed using The Basic Cozy Punctuation Course this past school year. It includes 15 lessons in which course author and retired teacher, Marie Rackham, instructs about the finer points of punctuation.[…]
I absolutely love this course! Marie makes learning grammar painless. She is always doing something as she teaches nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, etc. which makes the DVDs very entertaining. She explains very clearly what each part of speech is and demonstrates them as well. It is really a great way to learn grammar. The classical[…]
Curriculum: Cozy Grammar/Punctuation Courses Grade level: All We love the Basic Cozy Grammar/Punctuation series by Marie Rackham! If you love the Charlotte Mason method of teaching, this series is for you! The series (grammar, punctuation, essay, spelling and intermediate grammar) is based for ages 10 to adult and is a wonderful review for those of[…]
Although grammar has been relegated to the dusty back shelf in many schools, it is an integral part of effective language usage. This gentle, quiet set of easy to understand lessons brings it back out to the light, and into sharp focus. Good explanations, examples and practice, with the ability to rewind and repeat, that[…]
I think Cozy Grammar is awesome! It should have been made a long time ago. I hope it gets into all the schools.
Just wanted to let you and Marie know how pleased I am with this program. My son who is 15 has never enjoyed language arts. He wants to do more than one lesson a day!! That has never happened before. Now he is breaking sentences apart and identifying them in our everyday conversations. It’s so[…]
We have just begun using the Basic Cozy Grammar Course, and thus far have been enjoying it very much. Our children are grasping the material, and I like the fact that each lesson is not too long. The scenery and settings for the lessons help make learning grammar more interesting, and it is quite refreshing[…]
Thank you so very much for the beauty, warmth and great information you share in your Cozy Grammar/Punctuation courses. Another homeschooling mother and I trade expertise and she shared your courses with me. You truly make a rather daunting subject come alive for children as well as for their mothers!
We ordered the grammar course as a gift for our nieces and nephews. They have thoroughly enjoyed it.
What I enjoyed about the video is that it puts the learning of grammar into real life situations, for example learning pronouns around the dinner table. I like the larger font used in the workbook and there are a limited number of practice questions. If the child needs more drill, additional questions can be made[…]
We have really enjoyed the basic grammar course. The ‘real life’ presentation especially appealed to us.
I ordered The Basic Cozy Grammar Course as a gift for my Grandchildren. Their writing skills have greatly improved since they began using the course and I am thrilled with their progress. Please keep me on your mailing list for future products.
What a fun way to learn grammar! Everything is clear and simple — and you can easily review each concept as many times as you want to. Although we have enjoyed the videos together, the nice thing about Cozy Grammar is that parental guidance is not a requirement. We will be using it as a[…]
