Grammar Galaxy: Protostar: Mission Manual by Melanie Wilson

The Grammar Galaxy Protostar Mission Manual is the workbook that is part of a complete language arts curriculum for third to sixth graders. The Grammar Galaxy Protostar text (required and purchased separately) uses short, comical stories to 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. After students or teachers read one of the mysteries from the separate text, young guardians complete a corresponding mission with three short steps in this manual. The Grammar Galaxy Protostar Mission Manual is especially appropriate for readers at a third-grade level or those who have completed Grammar Galaxy Nebula. Missions for Advanced Guardians make it flexible enough to use with students through sixth grade.

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

*speaking

Grammar 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 fun

Homeschooling mother, Elizabeth, writes:

You really did it. You truly made grammar fun. I didn't think it was possible but you obviously deserve some kind of medal! THANK YOU!

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 sons 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 the author of the blog, Psychowith6.com.
