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:

Providing a comprehensive range of skills, this program transitions from systematic phonics and decoding in the younger grades to reading comprehension in the higher grades. Students learn key strategies for reading comprehension as well as literary terms with a variety of wholesome, engaging stories from all genres including biographies, narrative exposition, historical fiction, Bible stories, and imaginary (fantasy). Biblical principles are taught as students discern what they read through the lens of the Bible. Using phonetic awareness activities to review phonics while developing comprehension in the younger levels, the series steadily progresses to higher order thinking and more challenging literary styles and techniques, including more composition/writing activities by grade 6.

The basal readers are colorful and have an appealing layout with a nice balance of open space and text. There is also a good mix of silent reading for comprehension and oral reading for communication while developing reading proficiency. Close reading strategies help students stay focused on key details while reading. Some levels have opportunities for longer readers with leveled novel studies.

Student worktexts contain practice pages to reinforce new vocabulary words and reading comprehension. A variety of other skills such as map and timeline reading, making a schedule, writing activities, and more are also included in the student worktext. This independent practice reinforces the reading and skills covered in the lessons.

The Teacher Editions contain complete lesson plans, with answered student pages (either full-size or reduced text). Lessons begin with skill development, then teaching, with optional reinforcement activities and discussion questions. Before reading begins, there are also suggestions for story introductions and interactive lessons. Because it is written for classroom instruction, there is a lot of information in the teacher guide; however, use this as a guide to meet the needs of your student. Grades 1-3 Teachers Editions come with a Toolkit CD; Grade 6 includes a DVD. Kits include all needed items: Teacher’s Edition, Student Text, Student Worktext, and Teacher Worktext.

This complete reading program promotes a lifelong love of reading as students develop reading fluency and learn to look for quality literature they can read on their own. Personally, our family has used and enjoyed this program in our homeschools and our daughters use it in their homeschools too!

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.
