Grammar Galaxy: Nebula is a complete language arts curriculum for beginning readers (advanced first graders, second graders, and students who are just beginning to read). Teachers read the text and provide as much help as possible for students who are not yet reading at a strong 3rd-grade level.
Nebula is also appropriate for older students who have not begun formal grammar studies or who are reluctant writers.
Short, comical stories teach concepts in a memorable way. Students discover the havoc that ensues when the evil Gremlin tampers with the English language. Fiction books are labeled as nonfiction and begin coming to life. A re- virus is introduced into the computer system causing things to be repeated endlessly. Rhyming poems and books are ruined when Word Harmony matches words that don’t rhyme.
The royal English children invite students to become fellow grammar guardians in order to save the galaxy from crises like these. Teachers read one of the mysteries to their students. Vocabulary words are defined in the text. Discussion questions follow each lesson to check for understanding. Students then complete a corresponding mission in the mission manual that reinforces the concepts.
Grammar Galaxy: Nebula, the first in a series of language arts texts for first to sixth graders, teaches:

Grammar Galaxy: Nebula is a great choice for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents:

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!
