Whether you’re homeschooling multiple children or your child attends a traditional school, you don’t have a lot of extra time. That’s why Grammar Galaxy is designed to take just ten minutes of teacher/parent time a day. Your beginning reader can use the extra time to read and write for the fun of it!
If reading and writing aren’t your strengths, you’ll love Grammar Galaxy. Concepts are presented in an easy-to-understand story format. And there’s no prep work! Just read with your child and do the short activities that reinforce the learning.
The evil Gremlin tries to destroy Grammar Galaxy and the guardians have to save it by completing missions. Grammar Galaxy includes humor and mystery, but it doesn’t include dry exercises. Young writers are asked to do very little handwriting. Instead, they enjoy learning by doing.
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 boys 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. Learn more on her blog or connect with her in the Grammar Guardians Facebook group.
Grammar Galaxy is a comprehensive language arts program including:
Even though the curriculum is broad in scope, the lessons are short. Grammar Galaxy is a mastery approach with built-in review. Rather than cover the same concepts year after year with boring drills, students learn through memorable stories.
Grammar Galaxy is a great choice for you if:
*Your student has begun to read and write (use a good phonics and handwriting program first)
*You want your student to spend less time doing seat work
*You want to motivate a reluctant reader or writer
*You prefer a curriculum with short, memorable lessons
*You want to enjoy learning along with your child

We are now finished with section five and love, love, love it! My daughter loves how it flows along with the story and I am confident that she has retained the information well and will not forget it. She says it’s her favorite subject.
