Shurley Instructional Material Shurley English Level 7 Kit

Nurture a love of the English language, along with an understanding of how it's correctly used, with Shurley English. Appealing to all styles of learners, students will repeatedly practice old and new skills, developing a mastery of English in reading, writing, and even thinking skills.

This kit is comprised of the student workbook, teacher's manual and jingle/introductory sentence CD. Encouraging student-teacher interaction, the teacher's manual features comprehensive chapters which include everything needed for the lesson, including jingles, guided practice, lessons, question-and-answer flow activities, journal writing, and more. Lessons are scripted, with important concepts and words bolded, and charts included to help teachers and students visualize each idea. Student page numbers are referenced to help both parent and child easily find their respective places. "How to get started" and "jingle guidelines" provide additional hints and information for the teacher. Answers for the student practice and tests (student pages included in the student workbook) are included chronologically. 643 pages, hardcover with teacher index.

With skill tests, application tests, writing examples, writing assignments, and a jingle section, students will gain skill mastery without growing bored of repetitive exercises. The jingle section contains the lyrics to all the jingles. Application tests access cumulative skills, grammar and editing, while skill tests focus upon the concepts taught in the current chapter. 327 pages, softcover.

An audio CD with the jingles and introductory sentences is also included to help students remember elements such as parts of speech. Level 7 Kit.

This is a complete grammar book. You do not need to supplement with other books for extra practice. My kids enjoy it, we have done levels 1-7 so far. Last year just out of couriosity we switch grammar textbooks and tried 4 diff. grammar books!! none worked as well as Shurley English and my kids were asking to use Shurley again.

I have a "mixed" review for both level 3 and 7 of Shurley English. I'm a busy Mom of 7 kids. So a HUGE factor for me when considering a curriculum is the amount of time it takes to teach a lesson. Although this curriculum said that it only took 30 to 45 minutes, I found that to NOT be true. On a good day, with very little interruptions I think it took an hour to 1.5 hours just to teach...then they had to finish the assignments. I'm not sure what (if anything) I'm doing wrong, but this is entirely too long for me!That being said, this is the best grammar curriculum I've ever used. My children learned far more this year about grammar and writing than they have ever learned before. Some people have said the jingles are dorky...and maybe they are. But they work. For me, that's the bottom line. I wish the 7th grade curriculum had come with a workbook though so when we are doing our question and answer flows (which is basically diagramming sentences but in a different form)my son wouldn't need to recopy the sentences from the teacher's manual (technically, I'm supposed to write them on the "board" and then he's supposed to copy from there...simply a waste of time).
