I'm starting to think ahead to next year. I am considering using Shurley English for 3rd Grade. It is very pricey for what I really was originally prepared for so I want to be sure it is for us. I would really appreciate any and all comments, experiences and thoughts on this program. My son hates, and I mean hates, writting. I'm trying to encourage him to write more. Would this program help or hinder that in him? I'm also posting this on other appropriate forms because I am finding out the homeschoolers are pretty spread out all over this site and not frequenting all the same forums; therefore, if you posted on one of the other forums, not to worry about repeating yourself in one of the others. I'll see it. Thanks so much in advance for your help and input!
