Why We Created Beowulf’s Grammar

We spent over twenty years homeschooling. During that time, we used a multitude of grammar programs. Almost all of them were DULL, and it was a struggle to retain some of the concepts. Our kids went over the same grammar terms, year after year. Grammar was almost invariably boring with colorless workbooks and some of the most tedious, mind-numbing sentences ever created for a student’s analysis. There never seemed to be a theme throughout the workbooks we used…just endless exercises that looked or sounded similar. There was no creativity, and certainly little, if any, fun. It was no wonder our kids weren’t “chomping at the bit” to learn or explore grammar!

This is the grammar program you’ve been looking for!

Beowulf’s Grammar is our remedy to the dearth of interesting grammar programs. We’ve included plenty of hands-on activities to help reinforce learning, fun characters, comics, humor, games, and more!

Beowulf’s Grammar is different because it’s creative and designed to engage learners instead of boring them! We’ve taken our 20+ years teaching experience and found ways to make topics understandable and accessible, even to younger or reluctant learners. 

Beowulf’s Grammar is a beloved favorite of homeschools across the world!

Beowulf’s Grammar

A unique approach to grammar

The printable student workbook 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.

*Spiral review allows students to revisit and practice previously taught skills and information. It gives students many opportunities to better understand material and achieve mastery.

Teacher’s Manual

Beowulf’s Grammar Teacher’s Manual (sold separately) 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.

Fun Projects

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.

Here’s a small sample of activities:

  • Make a pronoun pizza
  • Noun treasure chest and hunt
  • Making a menu to learn adjectives
  • Hands-on apostrophes activity
  • Helping verbs box and song
  • Turn adjectives into adverbs wheel
  • Subject and predicate mix-and-match

Squirrel asking a question

Beowulf’s Grammar F.A.Q.

Have a question about our homeschool grammar curriculum? Take a look at our F.A.Q.!

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!

This 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 (except for the supervision of and assistance with activities and crafts). 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 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.

If you are using Beowulf’s Grammar in conjunction with our language arts program, it is scheduled out over 33 weeks.

Feel free to go at your own pace!

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?

Many of our customers use The Homeschool Printing Company to print the workbook and then view the teacher’s manual via their home computer or tablet (and print some of the extra activity pages from the teacher’s manual using their home printer).  The Homeschool Printing Company’s and Family Nest Printing prices seem to be reasonable.

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?

Yes! We formatted the pages to print double-sided in 2022.

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. We only offer a digital version at this time. You can print out your materials at home or have them printed via a printing service.

While Beowulf’s Grammar is a stand-alone grammar program that can be used by itself, it is also scheduled in our language arts curriculum as a grammar “spine.” It’s used to teach grammar. Beowulf’s Grammar covers all eight parts of speech as well as parts of a sentence and other grammar concepts like punctuation.

Guest Hollow’s Language Arts Curriculum is exactly that… a full curriculum schedule. Guest Hollow’s Language Arts Curriculum covers a variety of language arts subjects like grammar, writing, literature, poetry, spelling, copywork & dictation, and vocabulary. Beowulf’s Grammar is scheduled in Guest Hollow Language Arts as a resource to teach grammar (along with other fun books and literature).

You do NOT need Guest Hollow’s Language Arts to use Beowulf’s Grammar. You do need Beowulf’s Grammar in order to use Guest Hollow’s Language Arts.

We are Christians, but Beowulf’s Grammar Curriculum is not intended to be a “Christian resource”. However, there may be infrequent (or what we consider to be) minor references or links to resources that mention Christian ideas, values, or sectarian topics even in our secular/non-religious/neutral curriculums.

Please note: On page 41 there is a Christian reference where the Bible is treated like a piece of literature. The crossword puzzle clue says, “The Bible verse in Proverbs 16:18 says: __________ goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall.” The answer is pride. Secular families can skip this page entirely (it will not hurt the curriculum in any way), or a parent can write the answer in by hand. On the same page there is a reference to Easter candy. These are the only Biblical references in the entire curriculum (400+ pages) that we recall.

3 reviews for Beowulf’s Grammar Workbook

  1. Alta Mahan

    After doing an assessment last year and realizing that grammar was our 10 year olds weak spot, we found Beowulf’s grammar and dove in this past year. We just finished our yearly assessment, and her grammar level was almost 100%!!! Our daughter loved the ease of the concepts taught. She was able to soar through the work many times just on her own, and enjoyed it. She wishes there was more!!!

  2. Melody Cole

    We used Beowulf for 5th/7th grade last year, and it was simple enough for the 5th grader who had no previous instruction to learn everything taught and still was in-depth enough that the 7th grader learned several new concepts along with very solid review! They both asked to keep doing it this year, but, sadly, there is not a Beowulf II. Thanks for a great program!!

    Here is what my 12-year-old had to say: “Diagramming was so much fun and I want to do more diagramming. Active and passive voice was hard to do, but the explanations were easy to understand.”

      Thank you so much for leaving such an awesome review!! <3

    I left a 5-star review last year, but I wanted to add one more thing. The only problem I had with this course is sorting out which pages to print single-sided and which ones to print double-sided. I reprinted dozens of pages over the course of the year because of that issue. I recently discovered the homeschool printing company hardcopyHQ that can do custom prints where you can specify single and double side pages in the same file. I will recommend it to families who I suggest Beowulf’s Grammar to from now on (which I do, fairly often…) I am not affiliated with them at all. It was just a great discovery for me that I wanted to share.

    • Jennifer Guest (verified owner)

      In May of 2022 we updated Beowulf’s Grammar and some of our other printable workbooks so they can now be printed double-sided. 🙂 We love our customers and listened to the feedback and requests for this feature! Thank you so much for your feedback (it really does make a difference) and for sharing about hardcopyHQ!
