Christian Light Reading (Gr. 1-8)

All > Reading / Literature > READING / LITERATURE PROGRAMS > Christian Light Reading Programs > Christian Light Reading (Gr. 1-8)

This series just might have everything you are looking for in a reading program. With a major goal of teaching children to think clearly and logically, the readers are highly readable and include enjoyable anthologies of stories and other prose selections as well as poetry and a generous dose of Bible selections (KJV). These selections have a strong character building emphasis as well as a foundational biblical and Christian worldview. Vocabulary development is enhanced by boldfaced words that are listed in a glossary in each book along with literary terms. On a practical note, the hardcover books are a nice, just-right-for-small-hands size that lay flat with ease. As you would expect, font size gradually diminishes throughout the grade levels. Colorful covers and inside accent color produce an inviting appearance, but there is a reminder of the programs Mennonite origins visible in the illustrations depicting their particular mode of womens apparel.

Just reading through the program would be beneficial, but the support information is well done as well. LightUnits accompany each reader. These are magazine-size worktexts that review phonics (lower elementary), competently cover reading comprehension (all levels), emphasize vocabulary development, and introduce literary analysis (middle school). Integrating these studies with practical application of Bible verses, there is also biblical review and an encouragement toward Bible memorization. The LightUnits are designed so the student can work somewhat independently, with symbols to indicate when teacher help is needed. Each LightUnit has three sections; each section has four lessons plus a quiz or self-check. To be completed in 17 days, day 16 is a review and day 17 is a LightUnit test and extra reading time. LightUnit answers for grades 1-3 are found in the Teachers Guidebooks. In grades 4-5, answers to LightUnit exercises are available in the LightUnit Answer Keys or in the Teachers Guide. In Grades 6-8, answers to LightUnit exercises are found only in the LightUnit Answer Key.

Teachers Guidebooks (coil-bound) are designed to be used with the Reader and the Light Units to provide a guided reading program. Well-organized and laid out, the lessons are easy to follow. Lessons are complete with an overview, detailed teachers instructions, and daily schedules. LightUnit answers are also provided at grades currently in the Sunrise 2nd Edition. Helpful appendices include: study words, story verses, an index of character traits, scope and sequence, index of skills taught, alternate reproducible tests with answers (LightUnits also contain tests), books for extra reading, and alphabetical lists of all stories and poems. ~ Janice
