Product Description:

Suggested for use with several major curriculums, this is a thick, delightful compilation of a wide variety of poetry. While the Random House Book of Poetry above is directed more toward children both in format and poetic selections, Favorite Poems is more of a read-aloud-from or teaching resource. Here are most of the poems you'd ever want to share or study with your children. Older children with an appreciation of poetry will also enjoy it.

Category Description for BJU Press Reading Grade 4:

Although some phonics review is provided at this level, the emphasis is on preparing the student for more challenging work as comprehension is stressed and more advanced activities are provided. Selections are from a mix of genres and include excerpts from classic literature. The Home School Kit contains Teacher's Edition, Student Text, Student Worktext, Teaching Visuals Flip Chart, and Worktext Teacher's Edition,

Category Description for BJU Press Curriculum:

We are pleased to be able to distribute BJU Press curriculum to our customers. Most homeschoolers are already familiar with their materials. For those who are not, BJU is a Christian university located in South Carolina that produces and markets curriculum materials for Christian schools as well as home schools. Probably the most homeschool-friendly full-curriculum supplier, they have not only accommodated homeschoolers, but have continually worked to make their materials better suited to the homeschooling family. Many of their courses now contain manuals written specifically for the home school setting, and visuals and supplemental materials have been "pared down" from the bulkier visuals still used in classrooms. While other curriculum suppliers initially frowned on distributing teacher materials to homeschoolers, and provided only expensive classroom versions, Bob Jones quickly embraced homeschoolers, readily allowing them access to teacher's editions and, eventually, producing less expensive spiral-bound or paperbound versions to save money for homeschooling families. Their materials are all top quality. They are professionally prepared, educationally sound, and Biblically-based. Used in Christian school classrooms across the country for years and constantly improved, they are courses you can trust in your homeschool as well. We have long been fans of Bob Jones curriculum materials, having used courses in almost every subject area for one child or another through the years. In our particular situation (seven children, Mom and Dad sharing in teaching as well as in running Rainbow Resource Center), a well-constructed, teacher-ready course can be a God-send. Although we have used a variety of methods and curriculums in our homeschool through the years (and continue to do so), we strongly feel that the Bob Jones materials we have used have helped to produce excellent, college-ready students. Unless you have a particularly strong aversion to textbooks of any kind, at any level, we highly recommend these materials to you.

Curriculum can be found by subject area in our catalog; see index for page numbers. A free scope and sequence is available below, with specific information by grade level.

Category Description for BJU Press Reading - Grade 2:

Recently revised with new format teacher's edition. Instead of a contained novel study (as in the older edition), there are several BookLinks lesson guides meant to be used with selected Journey books. While listed as support materials, I would recommend the use of these (or other study guides) for the experience of reading and studying a full-length work in Reading 2. Teaching Visuals Flip Charts are used for the skill lessons to facilitate review of phonics and other skills. Service Word Cards contain 108 most-needed irregular words that students must master by sight. These two tools are integral parts of the program.

The Home Study Kit includes Teacher's Edition (2 vols.), If Skies Be Blue Student Text, When the Sun Rides High Student Text, Student Worktext, Teaching Visuals Flip Chart, and the Worktext Teacher's Edition.

Category Description for BJU Press Reading:

This reading program is the most comprehensive Ive seen, incorporating phonetic reading at the lowest levels (correlated to phonics instruction), a full range of comprehension skill development, and reading-related skills not usually found in a basal program (map skills, reading and making schedules, word skills, time lines, literary skills, and many more). The Teachers Manual contains daily lesson plans, with a complete presentation of the lesson, and student reading pages, either as a full size text, or in reduced size. Each reading lesson begins with skill development, the reading lesson, and optional enhancement or reinforcement activities. In the younger grades, many of the skill development sections reinforce phonetic and decoding skills. Many of the lessons refer to the Skill Charts for reading lists of words with the constructs being studied. The reading selections are wholesome, engaging, and include all genres - biographies, narrative exposition, historical fiction, Bible stories, imaginary (fantasy) stories, etc. These acquaint students with different types of literature from the beginning - a feature lacking in most other basal readers, which predominately seem to contain stories. As with all Bob Jones lines, the content is tacitly Christian. Typeset used in the readers is age-appropriate and not eye-straining. Most reading comprehension is done orally, but student worktexts contain skill practice pages and some exercises to test or reinforce student understanding. A Teachers Edition of the worktext has answers overprinted in red. The accompanying chapter-by-chapter study, along with background information and discussion questions, is contained in the Teachers Manual. Essential materials are listed first beneath each grade level, followed by asterisked (*) support materials. Complete Home Study kits contain all essential materials to teach one child.

The Bob Jones reading program has been a mainstay in our schooling for years, and we highly recommend it.

Looking for a variety of poems to use during nature studies and also to add to history as well. I want one book instead of purchasing many through the years. Many of these poems are classics!
