Grammar Bytes! features detailed explanations, with examples, of more than 60 grammatical terms and concepts including verb tense, fragment and run-on sentences, prepositional phrases, and adjectives. Users can test their knowledge of sentence structure by taking online grammar quizzes, which include printable PDF documents to record their answers. Users also have the option of clicking on a link to get an explanation for any answer. The content is well-written, and kids will get an overview of many basic grammar rules.

Unfortunately, the quiz exercises, which are the site's most interactive element, are fairly basic and start to feel tedious pretty quickly. PowerPoint presentations are included to offer additional information, but like much of the rest of the site, they're heavily focused on reading instead of visual elements or user interaction. The site also has a few original language-themed videos, but many are long (some clock in at more than 14 minutes) and seem to drag. If Grammar Bytes! doesn't find a way to spice up its text-heavy content, kids may lose interest before they get past the first exercise.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
