Dear all

I would like to guide my 6 years old boy in his grammar. However my level of English is not fantastic. May I know whether there is any guidebook for parents on Grammar that I can purchase.

I just bought this book to help me coach my gal:

My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?): Old-School Ways to Sharpen Your English

You can browse sample pages on amazon before deciding if it is the right one for you. :)

I got the Marshall Cavendish English Grammar Handbook Primary P3/4 (there is another version for P5/6). I find that helps in explaining for example when to use what. You can browse in popular. The new version is fairly pricey (close to $20) but 2nd hand bookshops may have at a fraction of the cost.

I find The Grammar Handbook (for lower pri) and My Grammar Guide (for upper pri) the best. You can get them from Nurture Craft at Forum the Shopping Mall. http://teachersproduction.appsfly.com/products

Please go Popular bookshop buy Casco Primary 1 English (orange cover). The book is good in guiding children for p1 English Grammar.

I love this topic/thread. I have the same question for the last half year, but in a slightly different form. I wanted to buy a so-called cover all topics and yet can last preferably till end of secondary school type of grammar book as my logic is grammar rules never change (universal truth perhaps) and hence want to save some money as well to get a so called everlasting grammar book/guide to teach my kid. As a result I started to look from the secondary school grammar learning needs spectrum and I quite like the green grammar book for students and the grammar plus book from learners. The only problem is these two books are not in a very child friendly simple English for lower primary kids and definitely not a lot of pictures in the book, reason why my kid may "reject" the book. So does anyone has any good recommendations for a everlasting grammar guide book that is written in simple English and hopefully quite a fair bit of pictures and colorful? Or am I being too greedy? :p.

Seems like you are starting your boy’s learning journey early. To give him a good head start to master grammar well with interest, you could purchase the vibrantly illustrated My Pals are Here! Grammar Handbook Primary 1 and 2.

It is interactive and uses illustrations to enhance your child’s understanding of grammar. You can also use the exercised provided to assess his learning. Explanations in the book are also simple so that you could guide him along confidently.
