Have used it for years. The kids have loved it too, and the more you play it up the better! There are two books, but the red one (which I think is the first one) is the one I have used every year. I've added and changed a lot as I go along, which is fun for me, too!

Thanks so much for the feedback. That is all I needed to hear to start it in my classroom. I am planning on following the suggestions in the book, since it is my first year using it. Does it take a long time to do at the beginning of class? Are there any recommendations or suggestions you would give while implementing this book? I am very excited to use it as my fifth graders struggle with run-ons, sentence structure and punctuation. I read throught the book briefly, but I was wondering how you deal with the new vocab word introduced everyday. Do you test eventually on these words? How do you get them to use this word on a daily basis? Do you just tell them the meaning like the book suggests and then forget about it? Just wondering? thank you so much for your help. I do not know anyone who has used this book.

I, too, have used Caught'Ya for several years. I have used the blue book and have considered adding the red book to my library, as well. My students love Caught'Ya and it is such a creative and engaging way to get students involved with grammar! I highly recommend this as a wonderful instructional resource!

I am looking for anyone who uses this book. It looks like a good book to teach grammar, but how do the teachers and students like it. Any feedback would be great before I buy it. thanks
