Fun Reading and Grammar Curricula that Kids Enjoy

One of the joys of homeschooling is to educate our kids in a way that teaches them to LOVE learning, rather than dread it!

Elementary-aged homeschoolers need to learn the 3Rs. The Reading and Writing part of those basics can feel dry and even intimidating to both kids and moms. When children feel intimidated, their brains do not process information well.

However, when they are enjoying their lessons, children’s brains:

  • Produce dopamine, which stimulates the memory centers in the brain
  • Produce acetylcholinem, which increases attention

An article in Psychology Today called The Neuroscience of Joyful Education gives lots of detail on the benefits of enjoyable lessons.

So, why not add some fun to Reading and Writing for your elementary aged kids? I would like to suggest 2 FUN and easy homeschool curricula to share that can make your homeschooling so much better:

Children learn better when they enjoy the process. Reading, Writing and Grammar work better when they are enjoyable for kids (and moms). Take a look at Grammar Galaxy and 7Sisters Literature Activity Guides.

Let us tell you about each curriculum.

Grammar Curricula that Kids Enjoy

When our friend, Dr. Melanie Wilson, of Homeschool Sanity Podcast and PsychoWith6.com introduced us to her Grammar Galaxy curriculum several years ago, my first thought was *RATS!*.

Why *RATS!*? Because my youngest was about to start college! Where were the FUN grammar books when my kids needed them? No where!

But for homeschool families who have elementary-aged children, Grammar Galaxy is a dream come true. Grammar Galaxy workbooks are:

  • Fast: Each lesson takes about 10 minutes to do. No kidding!
  • Easy: The lessons are SO understandable, even if you are NOT a grammar-loving person!
  • Interesting: The lessons are written in story form. Homeschoolers learn grammar while engaging in a delightful story that they interact with!
  • Fun: I can’t say it better than Melanie explains: *The evil Gremlin tries to destroy Grammar Galaxy and the guardians have to save it by completing missions. Grammar Galaxy includes humor and mystery, but it doesn’t include dry exercises. Young writers are asked to do very little handwriting. Instead, they enjoy learning by doing.* I can tell you, they are wonderful stories and *missions*!
  • Each level includes a book with the story of the guardians of the galaxy. A second workbook contains quick and understandable grammar, writing and comprehension lessons.
  • The books can be purchased in print or digital formats.

Visit Grammar Galaxy and get your elementary agers busy saving the galaxy with good grammar!
