Publisher Description:

Grammar Galaxy Protostar (Volume 2) is a complete language arts curriculum for beginning readers (third graders or students who have completed Nebulaor its equivalent).

In this adventure, the English family discovers the havoc that ensues when commas are out of commission. Your student will be a guest guardian who helps put them back in place.

Grammar Galaxy: Protostar is a great choice for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents whose student is a beginning reader and writerand has mastered Nebula skills. Teachers or students may read the story and theaccompanying mission, according to ability.

Category Description for Grammar Galaxy:

Former clinical psychologist, Dr. Melanie Wilson cleverly disguises this language arts program as a mission manual your student will use to save the Grammar Galaxy from the evil Gremlin. Gremlin seeks to destroy our English language: the helping verbs no longer help; idioms have become literal; and suffixes drop. Gremlin is wreaking havoc; students must go on a mission to save language. Step by step, students will read the chapter mission and then solve missions using the Manual. As students complete tasks in this imaginary galaxy, they will learn the nuts and bolts of language arts: literature, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, composition, and speaking (no phonics or handwriting instruction). While each of these topics is covered yearly, subskills are taught with a mastery intent, and will vary and build upon previous years. For example, pronouns are introduced in Protostar; pronoun-antecedents in Yellow Star. Story elements are introduced in Nebula; foreshadowing introduced in Red Star. Diagramming is introduced in 6th grade. Based on your student and your language arts goals, you may want to annually add concept review and additional literature reading to strengthen skills.

To implement the course, start with reading aloud the Text’s 10-minute chapter mysteries (5th-6th grade level readers can do so independently). In the next step, the student completes short missions by writing or dictating (for younger students) using the required Mission Manual (consumable student worktext). Missions are three-step (complete throughout the week or in a long class period). The Guardians of the Galaxy provide answers via “guardian mail.” Each level includes Advanced Guardian assignments (for older students or those needing more challenge). At the end of each unit (4-5 units total, depending on the course) students complete 10-question Challenge tests. Once these are passed, students earn a star for their guardian bookmarks and move on to the next mission. Students can start with Nebula and progress through the series or enter at the appropriate grade levels: Nebula for beginning communicators (1st – 2nd); Protostar (2nd – 3rd); Yellow Star (4th), Red Star (5th), and Blue Star (6th). Check out the Scope and Sequence on the Rainbow Resource website to help determine the correct level. Students who struggle with grammar or who have gaps in language arts might use the series up through 8th grade as remediation. Mission Manuals are for single student use only. ~ Ruth
