Real Homeschooling Challenges Solved!

Three of the biggest homeschooling challenges are . . .

Challenge #1: Finding great, affordable teaching materials for any size family

Homeschooling can be expensive! A family can spend hundreds (if not thousands) of $$$ a year on curriculum, website memberships, etc.

Challenge #2: Finding teaching materials that fit your child(ren)’s learning styles

In an effort to standardize teaching materials, too many websites and curriculum providers lose sight that every child is unique with different learning styles and rates of learning.

Challenge #3: Finding flexible teaching materials

Most curriculum providers offer one (maybe two) styles of teaching materials. Doing the same thing day in and day out doesn’t allow for student interest, family time, or bunny trails. Sometimes, the BEST learning can be when a bunny trail is taken. (Bunny trails are paths you make as you help your child(ren) follow their curiosity about an interest or a question. These trails can be a valuable addition to your daily curriculum.)

What if there were a website that solved all three challenges? Would you want to know about it?

Shurley English

Since 1989, our mission at Shurley English has been to do all we can to help teachers and students experience language arts success! Our curriculum uses a unique combination of features to reveal a logical connection between grammar, skills, and writing. Abstract language arts concepts become clear and logical using concrete, multi-sensory strategies. 

Jingles—We teach the parts of speech and key language arts concepts in a fun, brain-compatible way using jingles. Students learn jingles easily and incrementally as they are chanted or sung, incorporating rhythm, rhyme, and movement.

The Question & Answer Flow—We teach students a systematic way to ask specific questions to uncover the role each word plays in a sentence. This strategy supercharges vocabulary and develops important fluency skills. 

Sentence Blueprints—We teach students to use correct grammar while composing sentences. Students learn to refine sentences using revision strategies, such as adding, deleting, changing, and repositioning words for increased clarity.

Writing—We teach capitalization, punctuation, and grammar skills through a consistently spiraled approach so that students learn not only correct usage but also practice higher-order thinking in the writing and editing process. Our step-by-step process takes the guesswork out of composing excellent sentences, paragraphs, and essays while supporting the voice of the writer. 

With pre-recorded lessons, enhanced digital textbooks, and award-winning print materials, Shurley English is truly “English Made Easy!” As you explore your home learning options, don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to help you on your journey to language arts success!
