Artistic Pursuits


  1. Since you have a question mark next to Shurley English, may I offer a bit of advice? My kids used Shurley in Lutheran Day School. I could not stand it. They could not stand it. I think it is probably an OK program, but it is tedious and obnoxious. I see that you use Rod and Staff Science. Have you thought about Rod and Staff English? I LOVE it. I think it is the bomb. I fully believe that my kids do as well in Latin as they do thanks to R&S. My oldest used R&S from 3-7 grade. He is very good at picking out the English errors on the SAT questions. Just a thought. It is cheap, reusable, and easy, easy to do. In fact, I did the early grades almost all orally.

  2. We used Rod and Staff English this last year and we're dropping it. :) Thanks for the advice about Shurley- tedious is not something we need!
