Essential Linguistics: What You Need to Know to Teach Reading, ESL, Spelling, Phonics, and Grammar, by David E. Freeman and Yvonne Freeman (You may use an e-book version if you wish. Both Nook and Kindle versions are available. The Kindle version appears to be identical to the printed text. I have not examined the Nook version, but it is probably the same.)

bullet

Essentials of Grammar: A Textbook for Teachers, Editors, Secretaries, Writers, and Other Semiwilling Curmudgeons, second edition, by Jeff Glauner (Available free for download.)

Resources:

bullet Grammar Rock on YouTube:  nouns verbs adjectives adverbs pronouns prepositions conjunctions interjections
bullet Interactive Exercises (Practice phonemic transcription, use crosswords to review vocabulary, etc.--check to see what is available!)
bullet ENG 3321 Links
bullet Guide to Grammar and Writing . This is one of my favorite sites, and I recommend exploring it thoroughly. Be sure to take advantage of the interactive exercises that go with most pages. Links to them usually appear at the bottom of the page.
bullet Basic Sentence Type Maze for Essentials of Grammar (Determine which sentence pattern fits by answering a series of questions.)
bullet Simple, Compound, Complex? This page should help if you're not clear on this set of sentence types. (Compound-complex sentences are included, too.) There are links to several interactive exercises so you can test your knowledge.
bullet Diagramming Sentences This PowerPoint shows you the basics of creating Reed-Kellogg diagrams. (The page will be slow to open, so don't give up too soon. You will probably be asked to install a Microsoft download, but you do not seem to need it if you have PowerPoint on your computer. If you don't see a picture when the frame tells you to click one, or if you click a picture and nothing happens, just ignore the instruction and move on.)
