This will be our first year with BJU Press. I’m very excited to use this curriculum. On Monday we started using BJU Bible Truths 4. Both of my kids will be doing the same level.
Like I had mentioned before, my kids were in an online charter school. It wasn’t a pleasant experience. Bible 4 (I’ll just refer to it as that) caught their attention and kept it!!
It was so neat to see a teacher talking as if they were the only students. They had a few big words that they had to look up and she did it along with them. Showing them the prefix and what it meant. Looking for the root word and its meaning and helping them visualize it so they could remember. From start to finish it only took about 20-30 minutes. On some lessons they had do draw and color so it took longer. It went over a few things at a time so they could soak up the information while doing the activities. Each time they finished they mentioned how much they liked it. So far I’m happy with it. I’ll be updating this information, along with all the other subjects, as the school year moves along.
