RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS
After 35 years of teaching, I am retiring. I will now have more time to devote to developing lessons and to expanding the biography and art pages.
Early teaching experiences included working with second graders and several years of working with learning disabled children.
A team of second grade teachers developed the reading, Bible, and spelling programs. You may use any parts that will be helpful to you in your classroom.
The lessons are available for non-profit duplication.
Literature Based Reading Lessons
Children's Bible Lessons
I am a proponent of a strong phonics based reading program. In the past when I have tutored,
I have used a phonics approach using Economy readers.
The Accelerated Reader computer program is a strong motivational program.

Special Features of the Shurley Method
Teaching children can be viewed as a ministry. In addition to teaching basic skills, we teach them to love God,
to be obedient, and to become responsible citizens. Can there be a greater calling!

By Tyndale House
Gather your family around the "radio" and step into C.S. Lewis's world of marvelous creatures, miraculous events, and perilous war against evil powers.

An additional cast of over 100 actors, original orchestral score, and high- quality digital sound bring these tales of courage, self-sacrifice, and friendship vividly to life. Ages 9 and up. 19-CD boxed set, 22 hours total. This set is a limited edition as a pre-movie release special.
|Poetry Speaks to Children, book with CD.
This book of poetry is a delightful collection of poems for children. A CD on which many of the authors read their own works is included. The CD lasts over an hour and includes 52 poems read by 36 poets and artists. 29 poets read their own poems. ( I was especially interested in a poem by Carl Sandburg, a poet I was privileged to meet in 1951. ) The full color illustrations are beautiful. We heartily recommend the book.
