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:

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.

We’ve found the BJU Reading curriculum the best and most engaging stories for our children. We love the thoroughness of the worktexts to help our children/students engage in an understanding of plot, characters, setting, and authors’ use of language skills.

Great companion to the readers. Colorful. Good reading comprehension questions. I don't care for the way the phonics concepts are presented in earlier grades, but otherwise, this is a good tool.
Rhonda B on Jun 13, 2016
We have used BJU for the past 2 years, and I like the variety of skills that are covered in the worktext. There are basic phonics skills, syllabication, map reading, dictionary usage, skimming for information, outlining, and of course, a myriad of reading comprehension skills.

BJU does a fantastic job of providing exercises in critical thinking, working with references and resources, reading maps, comparing and contrasting story elements, comprehension, predicting outcomes, the list of skills goes on and on. Reading is more than just calling out words and this series helps students develop a wide array of skills that are important in mastering reading.

My Favorite Reading Curriculum
We have been using the BJU Reading series for the past 2 years and will continue on with it. I love the variety of stories, and they all have such a good message. Very thoughtful and loving. The workbook is easy for my son to follow and covers EVERY topic related to reading, including comprehension, literary devices, etc... I also love the pages which include how the topic relates to scriptures and how those scriptures can relate to your child's life. But my son love it as well. We have used only the student textbook and work text and found that was all we needed for our purposes.
