Win a FREE Shurley English Jingle Time Music Pack–for use with ANY English curriculum. Entering is easy!

One of the things that makes Shurley English so effective is the use of jingles to teach the parts of speech. Shurley recently released their Jingle Time Music Packs so students using any English curriculum could take advantage of this unique learning method. Each Music Pack includes an Audio CD and a Piano Sheet Music Book with guitar tabs, and they’re available in two sets: Levels 1-2 and Levels 3-8.

Whether you love them or hate them, the little ditties that make their way into your brain as a child really stick with you! For this week’s contest, we’d like to hear about a jingle from your youth that’s made a permanent home in your head. I’m a pepper, you’re a pepper…Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down…Ooey gooey rich and chewy inside…Nothing beats a great pair of L’eggs. We’ll probably never get that personal hard drive space back, so we might as well have some fun remembering the jingles of days gone by.

To enter this week’s contest, simply write your answer as a “Comment” to the contest post on the Finders-Keepers Facebook Page. The winner will receive a free Shurley English Jingle Time Music Pack (choice of level).

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, May 26th, and the drawing will be that afternoon. One winner will be selected randomly from the number of responses received. The winner will be announced on Facebook, and he or she will receive a message from Finders-Keepers requesting shipping information. Please feel free to share the contest information with friends and family, but we do request that responses be limited to one per person. 

And don’t forget, the  Finders-Keepers website offers free  Printable Shurley Extra Practice Sentences , free Printable Shurley Writing Templates, and a Shurley Scope & Sequence, as well as fantastic prices on Shurley English materials with FREE shipping on all orders of $50 or more.

Doodle4Google Homeschool Student Finalist—Please vote and help spread the word!

Hannah Newsom is a homeschooled student who has been selected as one of 40 finalists in Google’s Doodle4Google competition. (She also happens to be from my hometown of Fayetteville, Arkansas!) In addition to being a lovely work of art, her entry expresses a wish for others to “glimpse the beauty of the Maker”. We received information about this contestant at a homeschool convention this weekend, and we’d love to see the homeschool community rally around to help her win!

The following information is excerpted from a VegSource post:

Since Hannah is a homeschool student she doesn’t have the backing of a large
school like many of the other contestants. So, we hope you will be her school
and vote for her and help us get the word out to your friends, family, co-
workers, etc.

Voting is going on now and closes at noon on Tuesday, 25th. Takes just a
couple of minutes to vote.
