New Shurley English Level 3 Practice Book
An optional convenience for use with the Shurley Homeschool Kit (sold separately.)
The Shurley Practice Booklets are a great time saver for busy homeschool moms. They contain the introductory and practice sentences for the Shurley lessons, printed in large font with plenty of space for the student’s writing. These are the ones printed in the Teacher’s Manual, which would ordinarily be copied onto a white board or notebook paper. Having them printed in booklet form makes it simple for the instructor to begin the day’s lesson with very little preparation. They are also useful for situations in which several students are being taught at once. Rather than taking turns writing the abbreviations on the white board during the Question and Answer Flow, each student can write in his own Practice Booklet while the classification is done orally in unison.
~FAQs about Shurley~
At Finders-Keepers, Shurley isn't just another inventory item among thousands. It's a specialty. If you have any questions, you can be certain that they will be answered by someone who has used the products extensively and understands the unique demands of homeschooling. These materials are brand new and come directly from the Shurley warehouse. Because we are located within driving distance of their corporate headquarters, we can replenish our stock quickly to meet your needs.
Is Shurley English the same thing as Shurley Grammar?
What items do I really need to get started with Shurley English?
Each Shurley English Kit includes everything needed to teach one student: a Teacher's Manual, a Student Workbook, and a Jingles CD. The other stuff is nice to have, but definitely not necessary. To teach more than one student, you will need an extra workbook for each additional child.
Can children of different ages be combined into one level?
Yes, this is a very common practice among Shurley English users, and we encourage it whenever it's practical. It makes sense for at least three reasons. First, it saves money because you only have to purchase one kit and one additional workbook for each extra student. Next, it saves time. You only have to present one lesson, and older kids can even swap papers and grade each other's work while you read the answers aloud. Finally, Shurley's amazing results are often further improved by working as a small group. Much of the work is done orally, and a chorus of voices serves to keep up the pace and energy level.
Does the Quigley software take the place of the Shurley Homeschool Kit?
The Classifying with Quigley software is for extra practice only, and can't take the place of the Shurley Homeschool Kit. It does not actually teach the Shurley method, nor does it drill the student on anything other than sentence classification and skill builders.
Can I just purchase the Level 7 Quigley for all grades and adjust the difficulty level?
You can adjust the difficulty level in the Quigley software. There wouldn't be a problem with buying a level or perhaps even two above the one your child is currently working on. However, Level 7 would be too overwhelming for a young child, even on the easiest setting. Level 7 Quigley sentences are on a 7th grade reading level. Also, the sentences tend to have more of each concept (say, several prepositional phrases), which would probably be too much for students in the early grades.
Do I need a workbook for each child?
Yes, the Shurley workbooks are consumable and each child will need his own copy. The workbooks are copyrighted, so photocopying the pages to save money is both illegal and unethical. Some of our thrifty (and ingenious) customers have reported great success with having their children utilize overhead transparency sheets and a Vis-a-vis markers on top of the pages in order to use the workbooks without consuming them.
My high school student needs a refresher course on basic English. Can we use Shurley Level 7?
Absolutely. We regularly sell Level 7 for use with high school students. In fact, it's ideal for this purpose because it goes back over the basics from the very beginning. I suggest comparing the Scope and Sequence for Shurley Level 7 with that of other traditional high school English programs. You may be surprised to find that much of the content is the same.
