Category Description for BJU Press Reading - Grade 4:

With this Voyages 3rd edition, students apply a biblical world view to reading strategies (most readings are in student book), comprehension tasks and learn vocabulary in context. Throughout the 180 lessons, teachers model strategies including silent and oral reading and literal and higher-order questions. 20 lessons teach 3 novels (Sarah, Plain & Tall; Medallion, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe--obtain separately) that can be taught at 3 levels of difficulty. Assignments include book reports, tech projects, assessment, and more. Homeschool kits contain text, worktext & answer key, teacher, assessments & answer key.

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.

Is the Teacher's text a must with the student text and workbook?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends. The teacher's manual has the lessons with vocabulary word suggestions, things to go over, extra questions, etc. The worktext answer key is just what it sounds like. The worktext answers are not in the teacher's manuals. You have to get the actual worktext answer key. So it depends on how in depth you are going to get. Can the student read the text and answer the questions, and learn anything yes. Can you grade their work with out the answer key? Yes. As long as you are okay with deciding if some answers a right for yourself. Can you teach the class without the teacher's manual? As long as you understand how BJU approches reading, (what Miss Long, Miss Silent, Mrs. Short, etc.) and can guide them with the skill stations in the back, you will be fine. So all that to say it really depends on your comfort level with reading and your expectations from the program.

BJU Reading: Wonderful Stories and Beautiful Illustrations!
My twin students are enjoying all the well written stories and lessons from BJU reading. Both the student book and the workbook are beautifully illustrated, easy to use and to follow. I recommend the workbook with the student reader.
