A kit contains all the materials that you need to teach one child for an entire year. Each Shurley English instructional kit contains 3 items. Teacher's Manual: The teacher's manual is the heart of the program at every level. Each lesson in the manual begins with a planning box, which contains lesson objectives. Scripted lessons provide you with the exact words for the Question and Answer Flows, questioning strategies, and the teaching techniques that make this program consistent for all grade levels. The script is especially helpful for parents who are new to homeschooling or are new to Shurley English. The Teacher's Manual is set up in chapters. There are five lessons in each chapter, and each chapter can be finished in one week. Each lesson takes approximately twenty to forty-five minutes to complete. Grammar, language skills, and writing are taught in each chapter. Student Workbook: Levels 1-6 do not use traditional textbooks. Shurley English places special emphasis on parent-child interaction and participation. In Shurley English, the children have workbooks, not textbooks, to practice and test their acquired knowledge and skills. Most student workbooks contain a Jingle Section, a Reference Section, a Practice Section, and a Test Section. The Jingle Section contains all the jingles. The Reference Section includes vocabulary words, guided practices, samples, guidelines, and charts. The Practice Section provides extra practice on the various skills taught before the skills are tested. The Test Section contains the tests for each chapter. Each test is divided into four basic areas: grammar, vocabulary, language skills, and a summary of things learned for the week. Introductory CD: The introductory CD provides the jingles and the Question and Answer Flows for the Introductory Sentences. It may be used to demonstrate jingles and Question and Answer Flows to children, or it may be used as a resource for the parents.
