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.

Shurley Homeschool English
Our family discovered Shurley English after having wasted a lot of time and money on other materials that just weren’t getting the job done. I found myself having to re-teach the same concepts year after year, and my kids weren’t getting the big picture. English was a snooze for the kids and a snooze for the teacher, which I suppose would have been okay had they actually been learning.

When we started using Shurley, the clouds parted, the sun shone brightly, and birds started singing. (Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration.) My kids were learning! They were engaged! And they were actually really, really good at English!

I’ve learned a lot from my curriculum failures over the years. I now know which factors are non-negotiable, and which ones I can take or leave. So what’s important to you in school materials? Reasonable price? Ease of use? Rigorous academics? Adaptability to multi-level teaching? Something else?

For this contest, we’d like to know how you feel about these things. To enter, simply write a “Comment” to the contest post on our Facebook Page letting us know what’s important to you in a curriculum. The winner will receive a free Shurley English Homeschool Kit (choice of levels).

All entries must be received by Noon CST on Wednesday, April 14th, 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.
