    I have taught Shurley in third grade. It builds each year and it will be difficult to just start kids in it. We slowed it down the first year our school used it. The next year when our kids were having it for the second year we were able to move faster. We found that even though we liked it, Shurley didn't prepare them for standardized test. We had to stop using it and switch to our text and test prep. Yes, its teacher manuel in not at all teacher friendly. I had difficulties with it, also.
    Saxon was good, but it didn't cover what we needed for standardized test within our time frame(We test in mid-March). I also found in third grade that the word problems were not challenging enough.
