The Grammar League

The Grammar League© program is a classroom-ready, linguistically-based, comprehensive program for teaching the parts of speech.  It features a band of original animated super heroes. Each hero or heroine represents one of the parts of speech and is physically designed to embody the characteristics of that part.  This program, reflecting the tenets of linguistic grammar as well as visual literacy, focuses first on the form of each part of speech, highlighting inflectional and derivational affixes to aid in identification rather than relying on ineffective definitions.  
The Grammar League© program then turns its focus to the multiple functions of each part of speech and the ways in which those parts interact to create effective English language structures.  Students are put off by the mere mention of grammar because it is confusing, boring, and seemingly irrelevant to the rest of their language arts experience.  The Grammar League© addresses these issues by being understandable and useable, exciting and kid-friendly, and designed to integrate with any English curriculum.

About Us

Amy Benton

Founder

Amy Benton holds an M.S. in English from Southern Connecticut State University, a B.A. in English from Ithaca College, and is a certified 7-12 English teacher and a certified Library Media Specialist. Her idea for The Grammar League© was born out of necessity when she realized that her middle school students couldn’t tell her the subject of a sentence. After Amy’s introduction of Nounman, her students took an active role in the development of additional Grammar League© personalities, intuitively developing relationships between characters. She knew they had created something very special once her students greeted her in the morning asking, “Is today Grammar Friday?!” Amy has been thrilled by both teacher and student response to this heroic attempt to empower students to master their own language.

Matthew Benton

Designer

Matthew Benton has been an artist from his first set of watercolors. Professionally, in the illustration and animation field, he has enjoyed a career of over 15 years. Matthew has excelled with forays into painting, figure drawing, and sculpting. However, his most accomplished talent, drawing pictures for children, developed with the birth of his first niece. It is both his own experience as a teacher and his extraordinary imagination that enable Matthew to understand the minds of middle schoolers. He possesses the uncanny ability to bring to life abstract concepts in the personalities of endearing characters. Each of his original designs for the Grammar League© heroes was instantly beloved by all of Ms. Benton’s students.
