K5 Beginnings Visual Homeschool Flip Chart 3rd Edition
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.
Colorful and more challenging, this complete revision of BJU's easy-to-use, well-organized kindergarten program retains and enhances its strong phonics framework while encompassing all kindergarten subjects - reading, handwriting, listening, composition, science, social studies, motor skills, art, and literature - everything except math and Bible. Incorporating more review and drill, letters and sounds are introduced and reinforced with appealing activities. The easy-to-follow lesson plans include patterns and sketches for each project, weekly themes with a review day, and even snack suggestions which follow the weekly themes. The Teacher's Edition will help you guide your student toward a strong foundation in reading and writing. The Student Worktext provides daily follow-up, covering the forty-four phonics sounds and their common spellings. The Phonics & Review Cards are durable teaching aids with letters on one side, a miniature phonics chart, handwriting strokes, and service (sight) words. Phonics Charts are large (8 1/2" x 10 7/8") charts of the key words in the songs, rhyme lists, sentence cards for context, featured phonics characters, and the alphabet. The Beginnings Visuals include handwriting flip charts (for home schools - #208108) as well as spelling cards, story family characters and 36 visuals to help introduce concepts. The Phonics CD contains phonics songs and selected readings used in the K5 materials. Write Now! Handwriting is comprised of sentence model activity sheets to help your student model writing strokes for precursive letters, numerals, and sentences. Phonics Practice for K5 contains thirty weeks of phonics practice. The book correlates with K5 Beginnings, but can also be used alone. The Complete Home School Kit contains all of the items listed below without an "*". Non-essential supplementary items (which are not included in the kit) are marked with an "*".
