Grammar Galaxy Protostar is a complete language arts curriculum for readers at a 3rd-grade level or those who have mastered the concepts in Grammar Galaxy Nebula. Short, comical stories teach concepts in a memorable way. Students discover the havoc that ensues when the evil Gremlin tampers with the English language. Classic books are moved to a long-term care library and can't be read. Meanings of word roots are confused when the Word Ancestry site is hacked. Some pronouns can't be used when a judge issues them a restraining order for being possessive.The royal English children invite students to become fellow grammar guardians in order to save the galaxy from crises like these. Students or teachers read one of the mysteries. Vocabulary words are defined in the text. Discussion questions follow each lesson to check for understanding.Grammar Galaxy Protostar, the second in a series of language arts texts for third to sixth graders, teaches:*literary concepts*vocabulary*spelling*grammar*composition and*speakingGrammar Galaxy Protostar is a great choice for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents:*Whose student can read and write at about a third-grade level*Who want their student to have excellent reading, writing, and speaking skills*Who want their student to spend less time doing seatwork and more time reading and writing for funThe workbook, the Grammar Galaxy Protostar Mission Manual (a separate purchase), enables guardians to complete important, enjoyable missions to reinforce the concepts.Homeschooling mother, Elizabeth, writes:You really did it.

About the Author
Dr. Melanie Wilson was a clinical psychologist working in a Christian practice, a college instructor, freelance writer, and public speaker before she felt called to stay home and educate her children. She is a mother of six and has homeschooled for 17 years. She says it's her most fulfilling vocation. Melanie has always been passionate about language arts and used bits and pieces of different curriculum and approaches to teach her children and friends' children. In 2014, she believed she had another calling to write the curriculum she had always wanted as a homeschooling mom - one that didn't take a lot of time, made concepts simple and memorable, and was enough fun to keep her kids motivated. Books have been a family business since the beginning. Melanie's husband Mark has been selling library books for 30 years. Melanie and the older kids frequently pitch in to help at the annual librarians' conference. Grammar Galaxy is another family business that she hopes will be a great learning opportunity for their children.When Melanie isn't busy homeschooling, visiting her oldest son in college, or writing, she loves to play tennis with family and friends. Melanie is also the author of Grammar Galaxy Nebula, The Organized Homeschool Life, and So You're Not Wonder Woman. She is the host of The Homeschool Sanity Show podcast and author of the blog, Psychowith6.com.
