Frequently Asked Questions
Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics! These can be sticky subjects sometimes, but GUM Drops makes them much sweeter and a whole lot more fun.
Should I be having my children do a page a day?
Have your children do as much or as little as needed! If you’re following a typical 180-day plan, workbooks won’t carry you through the whole year. But if your children are ready to forge ahead in new concepts, why hold them back? There’s nothing scary about a 3rd grader doing grade 7 work!
Is this a complete grammar curriculum?
GUM Drops is meant to be a supplemental curriculum — the icing on the cake, as it were. The workbooks provide strong reinforcement to concepts your students should be learning, and make them a ton of fun at the same time.
Is a whole story from classic literature retold?
Yep, that’s spot on. Of course, they’re abridge and condensed; otherwise the workbooks would be thicker than War and Peace. Each story has been rewritten for the specific grade-level workbook it’s in.
