Publisher Description:

Help your student develop a love for the written word with the Reading 1 (4th ed.) educational materials from BJU Press. The six reading books are filled with engaging stories and beautiful illustrations to encourage even the most reluctant reader. Each selection is designed to incorporate phonics, English skills, and service words. Additionally, each one will develop your student’s biblical worldview and encourage him or her to develop characteristics such as compassion, courage, responsibility, honesty, and more. The Student Worktext includes fun activities that assess comprehension of reading material, vocabulary, and other reading skills. The Teacher’s Edition includes flexible lesson plans, reduced student pages, answers to worktext pages, and support materials. The Reading 1 Subject Kit (4th ed.) includes the 3 necessary items for successfully teaching Reading 1.

Category Description for BJU Press Reading - Grade 1:

No longer part of the same package as the Phonics and English 1 course, this reading course has a lot to offer and helps develop phonics systematically. The course consists of a single student worktext, which is consumable and colorful; and six reading books. The readers contain some new stories, some previously-included stories, and some rewritten ones, along with full color pictures on every page. These introduce students to different genres, including fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry, and even choral readings. Many of the stories are centered around a Christian family, and all are edifying and character building. The new 4th edition pieces are compatible with the 3rd Ed.




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!

Do I need the phonics charts that the press sells, or can i teach this at home with just what is in this kit?
Jennifer on Apr 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The charts sound like a classroom/group teaching element. You can definitely just use these books to teach at home.
