    Shurley English 6 for December 6th

    Welcome back from Thanksgiving! This week finish Chapter 13, Lessons 2-4.  There is no writing assignment this week.  Use the extra time to polish up on your synonym/antonym pairs. Parents:  When we start back to school in January, we will be switching from Shurley English 6 Composition to Classical Composition.  If your student doesn’t already have Memoria Press’ Classical Composition I, Fable Stage, this would be an excellent time to order it.  Thank you!

    Shurley English 6 for November 1st

    Well, it certainly has been an eventful weekend in Tupelo and the surrounding areas!  Many yards need some extra attention this week, so I am deleting the writing assignment for this week’s lessons.  All you need to do is finish lessons 2-4 of Chapter 9. Also, parents, I will be sending out grade averages for the first quarter by email this week.

    Shurley English 6 for October 11th

    This week we are working on Chapter 7. We did all of Lesson 1, the practice sentence on page 119 of the Teacher’s Manual, and went over the writing assignment in Lesson 5. Please complete Lessons 2-5 at home this week. Don’t forget to study past pairs of synonyms and antonyms.  There is always a section on the tests about these, and they can really bring down your grade if you don’t refresh your memory! Have a great week!

    Shurley English 6 for September 27th

    This week we finish Chapter 5. Please finish all vocabulary, practice sentences, workbook exercises, test, and the writing assignment.  And of course, up to 6 daily grams. For the writing assignment, you will be writing two paragraphs; the first paragraph is in the first person, the second paragraph can be the same paragraph with a change to the third person. Are practice sentences now include prepositional phrases, so if you are having trouble identify them, please review prepositions.  You can find a list of them in Jingle 9 of Chapter 4. Also, don’t forget to review your pairs of synonyms and antonyms before you take the test.
