More Free Gentle Grammar Curriculum for Young Children

Complicated grammar frustrates little kids (and moms). They don’t need to know about nouns and adverbs, they just need to know how to write good sentences.

That’s why I was so happy when I discovered New Language Exercises for Public Schools by C. C. Long. Here was a way I could teach my early readers to express themselves on paper and skip the tears and frustration!

I wrote about this extensively in this post:

Gentle Grammar for Young Children

I even included a free download of levels one and two, with a promise of working on levels three and four and offering them at a later date.


…that later date has arrived!

I (finally) finished these upper levels AND found the time to put them in print. Now you not only can have these books for free in printable PDF format, but you can own physical books!

And they are so adorable! My daughter took images from Graphics Fairy and created covers and little flourishes that add interest throughout each book.

If you want to find out more, be sure and watch this video:

We think the workbooks will be a definite help to you and your children, but if you don’t have the cash, or you would simply like to try-before-you-buy, feel free to download the books at these links:




Oh, and don’t forget to check out The Record Book to keep track of ALL of your learning and make it count!

  2. So excited about these! I love all of your books. They are simple and straightforward yet the material is full of life. My favorite curriculums are those put together by other, experienced homeschool moms. Thanks so much for making them available.

    • Thank you for the kind words, Jill. I strive to keep things as straight-forward as possible because that is how I have learned to survive (and thrive). I am so glad my materials are full of life–what a high compliment 🙂

  3. Sherry, you are a great blessing to the homeschool community. Thank you for these free, grammar book downloads. We just adore the lovely graphics, the gentleness and simplicity. My daughter started using Level 1 last year. She is 7 now, continuing with Level 1.

  4. Oh yay!! I was sooo hoping you’d do these :). I just love them! Thank you so much as always!!

    And p.s. glad to see you posted-I missed you

    • I missed you, too, Amy. We have been going through some immense life changes and it just became so hard to find time to post–but I think I’m going to focus more on vlogging, which should free me up to be more consistent 🙂

  5. I’m so excited to see this! Thank you for making it available in both formats. I’m going to use this fir my daughter, and I’ll be sharing this with my readers, as well!

  6. Homeschooling momma of eleven, teaching and learning along with all my kiddos for 26 year and counting. Absolutely, loving your hard work . It is fun having something fresh(but, yet so “OLD”, which makes it so, good) and exciting to do with my youngest batch. After Homeschooling for 26 years, God has granted a desire of my heart and you are part of that. Fill free to keep it coming. May God bless you and yours in many great and wonderful ways . “Happy Homeschooling year!”

    • Congratulations as an amazing veteran homeschooler, Patricia 🙂 It’s so fun seeing how God is using our efforts to bless others. Happy Homeschooling Year to you, too!

  7. Thank you so much for making all of these available and for all of the materials you have posted about the McGuffey Readers. What a blessing! 🙂

  8. Thank you Lord for this wonderful resource!! Sherry, I can’t tell you how helpful this will be to me. Thank you so much for offering these workbooks as free downloads. Our budget is so tight right now; this is a HUGE blessing to our family. THANK YOU!!!

  9. Thank you so much, Sherry, for sharing these with us. And for free! What a gift! They are so beautiful and I look forward to using them in our new school year. God bless you!

  10. I ordered Gentle Grammar Level Two for my son. You never know for sure how a curriculum will work for your child until you implement it. Well, this one exceeded my expectations. My eight-year-old is thriving in it and enjoys the creativity these books afford. We are using the McGuffey’s readers and Gentle Grammar as our language arts curriculum this year.

    My older son completed Long’s Language a few years ago and now, at age twelve, excels in grammar. I wish these had been around back then. Having this updated version of such a solid grammar approach in a workbook format is a dream for this homeschool mom. Thanks again, Sherry!
