Building on the concepts in Shurley from Grammar and Writing 3, students will drill Shurley English jingles on a regular basis and use assigned practice sentences for the week, making sure that they master the concepts and parts of speech. They will also learn writing using the Institute for Excellence in Writing, beginning with the key word outline, writing from pictures, narrative stories and essay writing. Regular feedback and help with writing assignments by the teacher will develop their writing skills. The CD provided with the course will be used to practice Jingles and practice the Question and Answer Flow with homework sentences. Parents should expect to provide consistent oversight and daily assistance on school days with no online class, including checking homework. Recommended for grade 4. Homework will average 1 - 2 hours per week.
Minimum age of 9 and maximum age of 12 on the first day of class.
