Grammar Galaxy: Yellow Star (Volume 3) is a complete language arts curriculum for elementary students (fourth graders or students who have completed Protostar 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. Metaphors are sworn to tell the truth for jury duty on planet Sentence and become reality. Hackers Prefix and Suffix confuse the galaxy’s vocabulary. Everyone is using double negatives when the Buddy System on planet Vocabulary goes into effect.
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: Yellow Star, the third in a series of language arts texts for first to sixth graders, teaches:
*composition and speaking
Grammar Galaxy: Yellow Star is a great choice for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents:
