Our Experience with Diagramming
Therese (15) and Nicholas (13) have each done their time with diagramming, Therese more than Nicholas. Both of them enjoyed it, and I like to think that diagramming helped increase their understanding of English grammar. As with so many things, though, Mary-Catherine and Michael (both 3 weeks away from 12) haven't had the same educational experience as the older kids. They have missed out on diagramming! I was so happy, then, to have the opportunity to review this book. As with so many things that The Critical Thinking Co.™ does, the diagramming book is done perfectly. There is just enough material to teach the concept, and to teach it well, with nothing extra. There is nothing to get in the way of the concept, nor is there anything to cause a child to become bored or irritated. It is easy to get in, learn the material, and get out. Because of that, it was so easy to add diagramming to our day. In just a few minutes a day, the twins are becoming diagramming experts!
