From the beginning, Shurley English teaches students to understand the role that each word plays in a sentence. The first part of speech we begin with is the noun, and in true Shurley style, we start by going over the Noun Jingle. The jingle and corresponding lesson teaches that a noun names a person, place, thing, or idea.
As students progress through the curriculum, their knowledge deepens as they are introduced to more and more noun jobs. Locating nouns by their noun job is one of the unique ways Shurley English curriculum helps students identify nouns; they learn to go to the noun jobs.
Here is a list of all the jobs a noun can perform in a sentence:
OP-Object of the Preposition
In the following sentences, take a look at the various jobs of the noun “motorcycle.”
Shurley English doesn’t just teach students to name the parts of speech and move on; it teaches them how to use those parts of speech to create well written sentences that follow the seven sentence patterns in our English language. To sum it up, Shurley students leave your classroom with a sense of ownership in grammar and writing. The in-depth approach Shurley English takes in teaching language arts concepts results in students that communicate with competence and confidence!
