Grammar Galaxy: Red Star (Volume 4) is a complete language arts curriculum for elementary students (fifth graders or students who have completed Yellow Star or its equivalent).
Short, comical stories teach concepts in a memorable way. Students discover the havoc that ensues when the evil Gremlin tampers with the English language. Authors quit writing and have to be located using author studies. Reflexive pronouns have people hitting themselves. A spaceship full of numbers lands on planet Spelling, and the king has to find a job for them.
The royal English children invite students to become fellow grammar guardians in order to save the galaxy from crises like these. Teachers or students read the text themselves. 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. Teachers provide as much help as necessary.
Grammar Galaxy: Red Star, the fourth in a series of language arts texts for first to eighth graders, teaches:
*composition and speaking
Grammar Galaxy: Red Star is a great choice for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents:
*Whose student is at the 5th grade level or above or has mastered Yellow Star skills

*Who want their student to spend less time doing seatwork and more time reading and writing
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!
