Homeschooling with Phunny Stuph
When my son was 9, someone left a flyer on our door. He was so annoyed by the quality of it, that he edited it. To date, we have sent 8 emails to publishers to point out errors that he has found. Since it was obvious that he enjoys proofreading and has a gift for finding mistakes, I ordered a few workbooks. With a disappointed yawn, each one ended up in the trash. When this arrived, my son immediately laughed at the title. It got even better when he opened it. This book lives up to its title! This book is like a reverse way of teaching, or testing for, grammar. Far from dull and boring, the 100 short stories can be used as mini grammar lessons, or refreshers for advanced students. The jokes really kept my son engaged and this book became one of the first things he reached for when our homeschool day began. This was designed for classroom use, so the answers are on the same page as the problem. Homeschoolers will need to cover the answer, or write out the problem on a white board.
