[UPDATE: Congratulations to Annie (levanpelt), the winner of our Shurley Grammar: Level 1 curriculum. Annie, please contact me within 7 days with your address so that I can send your books.]
The first goodie up for grabs is the Teacher Manual and Student Practice Booklet for Shurley Grammar, Level 1. The covers have some wear to them but I did not see any writing inside either book. The CD is included with the Teacher’s Manual. According to the back cover,
“Shurley English reaches all of the learning styles of students while using repetition, fun, and student-teacher interaction to help them learn difficult English skills… The most important effect of Shurley English on students may not only be their increased grasp of language and improved grammar and writing skills, but their heightened self-confidence and self-esteem. Not only do the students gain confidence in English, but they carry this improved attitude into other subject areas as well.”

If you would like this item, please post a comment below telling me what you like about it (one entry per person, please). Have a great week!
Reminders: The items in Goodies Up For Grabs may be gently used or like new. While the item itself should be in good condition (I’m not guaranteeing it because I won’t be watching every video or listening to every CD), the covers may not be in great shape. As of this writing, items are all from my personal shelves but that may change if friends offer to contribute to the stash. I may not have actually used the item. (You don’t ever do that, do you? Buy curriculum and not use it? I didn’t think so.) Some of the resources may be older versions – I have several great videos but they are on VHS tapes – so be sure to pay attention to whether the format of a resource will work for you.
The rules are simple – for each item, just post in the comments section of the blog post what you like about that particular item. The choice will be random, so it will not increase your chances of winning to tell how your husband just left you and your house burned down and you lost your job so you really *need* the item. Keep it simple, and happy homeschooling!
