Make grammar the best part of your homeschool day!
“We just completed our year of Beowulf’s Grammar. We all loved it and learned so much! My ten year old son actually cried when we did our last page. Please, please, make more Beowulf’s Grammar! We all agree, Beowulf’s Grammar is the best way to learn grammar.”
This is the grammar program you’ve been looking for!
Beowulf’s Grammaris my remedy to the dearth of interesting grammar programs. We’ve included comics, colorful illustrations, hands-on activities, gentle review, memorable characters, and a combination of approaches to help students not only retain what they are learning, but to actually enjoy grammar!
Customers have shared that Beowulf’s Teacher’s Manual is a much-appreciated addition to Beowulf’s Grammar. The teacher’s manual makes checking a student’s work so much easier, and the teaching ideas and explanations are a valuable addition to the program.
Beowulf’s Grammar is a beloved favorite of homeschools across the world!
Everything you need to teach grammar!
The printable student workbook(sold separately) is stuffed full of terrific grammar lessons and activities. There is also a gentle, optional spiral review built in via the weekly review pages in the appendix. These extra pages help students retain the things they’ve learned, even when they’ve moved onto another topic.
Beowulf’s Grammar Teacher’s Manual has nearly every page of the workbook in miniature, so you can follow along with your student’s lessons without having to share his/her book.
The teacher’s manual also contains all of the answers to the exercises, lessons, and review sheets.
In addition, there are lots of extra ideas to make things even more fun and relevant, and there are extra printables to help expand lessons.
We work hard to engage ALL types of learners.
Grammar doesn’t have to be boring! We’ve created all sorts of hands-on activities, games, and projects to help concepts stick.

Beowulf’s Grammar Curriculum is designed for grades 2-6. It can also be used with an older student or even an adult who needs to learn or review grammar concepts (if s/he doesn’t mind some of the juvenile graphics and/or activities). If you aren’t comfortable with grammar, you can learn along with your student(s)!
No previous grammar knowledge is assumed, so you can fill in possible gaps your student may have from previous years, or you can work from scratch to build a brand-new grammar foundation!
Beowulf’s Grammar Workbook is designed to be used by a multitude of ages, so it will require a multitude of approaches based on your student’s ability level. Younger students may need you to read pages out loud, be on hand to point things out, and help keep them on track. Older students may be able to go through the workbook by themselves (with supervision for activities), as each lesson is explained to the student. Reluctant writers can do some of the lessons orally. Be flexible and make it work for you and your unique situation!
For some students, Beowulf’s Grammar can be self-teaching. All of the pages are designed so that Beowulf is (or I am) doing the teaching. Everything is explained step-by-step and presented in a friendly way. There is no awkward parent script to read and slog through. Having said that, there are plenty of teaching ideas and notes in the teacher’s manual for parents who would like more guidance!
Beowulf’s Grammar covers all eight parts of speech as well as parts of a sentence and other grammar concepts like punctuation. It doesn’t just cover the basics; it also delves into some more complicated grammar concepts that aren’t usually included in a primary grammar book. I believe children are smart and can absorb these concepts if they are presented in an accessible way! Click the download button to see the table of contents of our program to see all the concepts covered.
Beowulf’s Grammar is very flexible. It was designed to be used over the course of about a year, but many customers use it over 2 years, especially with younger students. Middle schoolers and high schoolers using the program may with to use it at an accelerated pace over the course of one semester.
There is an optional 33-week schedule provided in Beowulf’s Grammar Teacher’s Manual.
Yes! Beowulf’s Grammar Teacher’s Manual has nearly every page of the workbook in miniature, so you can follow along with your student’s lessons without having to share his/her book.
The teacher’s manual also contains all of the answers to the exercises, lessons, and review sheets. In addition, there are lots of extra ideas to make things even more fun and relevant, and there are extra printables to help expand lessons.
If you are very comfortable with grammar and don’t mind going through all of the exercises to correct them, you can possibly do without the teacher’s manual.
Having said that, we think the teacher’s manual is an integral part of the curriculum due to the additional ideas, teaching explanations, suggestions, additional activities, and the easy-to-read answer key that will make your homeschooling job easier.

Do you have suggestions for printing the workbook?
Some families print the workbook using black ink and look at the color comics using a computer or a tablet.
Other families use remanufactured ink cartridges to save $$ or subscribe to the HP Instant Ink program. We used to purchase low cost ink from Carrot Ink when we were homeschooling.
Some families take the PDF to their local copy shop (such as Barnes & Noble) or library and have the pages printed out if the cost is cheaper than the above suggestions.
Can I print the pages double-sided?
We haven’t yet formated Beowulf’s Grammar to be printed double sided. However, a customer shared a printing guide she came up with in our Facebook Language Arts & Grammar group (search for “printing guide”).
Can the workbook be printed out in black-and-white?
Yes, but I recommend it be printed in color, if possible.
Do I need more than one print-out if I’m using this with multiple students?
Yes, you will need to print extra copies of the interactive pages and review sheets (in the back of the workbook). You can print just one copy of any comics and lesson pages, or you can view those pages on a computer or tablet.
Is there any way to use Beowulf’s Grammar without printing it?
No, you will have to print out at the very least some of the activities and the parts of speech cards. However, some customers have used apps on the iPad like GoodNotes and Notability that allow you to open a PDF, mark, write, and type on it, and even do some of the cut-and-paste activities. If you use Beowulf’s Grammar this way, you can save a LOT on printing costs and easily use it among siblings.
Please see the table of contents in the Beowulf’s Grammar Workbook. The review sheets are at the back of the workbook starting on page 346. If you downloaded the workbook in four parts, they are in the fourth download.
Yes, on a case-by-case basis depending on the amount of paperwork they require and the bureaucracy that needs to be navigated. 😉

No more grammar tears!!! …she’s almost 12 with learning disabilities and up till now grammar has been one of her hardest things. She’s finally GETTING IT!!! No more mama tears either!

From a 9-year-old student: “I used to hate grammar and now I love it!
Hey Mom, diagramming is easy!! (Coming from my 11-year-old daughter… who will now do Beowulf Grammar all morning if I let her…)
My middle school son needed a grammar refresher. He loves Beowulf’s Grammar and is finally retaining grammar. We skipped some of the cut-and-paste activities since he doesn’t like hands-on stuff. My daughter can’t wait to use it in a couple of years!
