Rated 5 out of 5Â by mugoftea First few chapters are great review for 3rd graders!
I really appreciate the good review that this book gives 3rd graders in the first few grammar chapters. The writing chapters offer a nice variety of writing ideas, and are appropriate for this age level. The cost is a little high compared to other English books, but I appreciate the excellent content of these books. One draw-back that we have had to this book that we have not experienced before with other BJU English books, is that the pages have fallen out from the first use of the book.

I have just started using BJUP for 3rd grade language and have been very impressed. The writing step-by -step instructions is very appropriate for my 8 year old.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lifelearn Great Supplement
I was looking for a supplement workbook option that could be used for practice with decent *proper* explanations. This was perfect! We've had off-brand workbooks gifted to us before and they have horrible instructions or use explanations that aren't the correct English terminology. While we are more life-learning and don't feel like we need to know all the parts of a sentence for great education, when discussing - I find its important to use the correct terms. The layout builds, which is also what I was looking for - it doesn't jump all over the place like many workbook options do. It is easy to pick up and use or take a break for a while when we're working on other projects or life gets in the way. It is colorfully illustrated which my daughter enjoys.
While we are Christian, I also enjoy that every word in the book isn't out of the Bible. It takes a real-life approach while using teachable moments to integrate Biblical education. I think that is a realistic approach to learning to live in God's eyes. Children do hundreds of things each day that are from God, but aren't reading scripture - and I think that's important.
There have been a few times where we've had to use other supplements to work on a few areas that we were struggling with and needed more workbook practice or a different approach, but this was *exactly* what I was looking for in a workbook and I looked through at least 10 different samples from other companies before choosing this one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by wahoomama From a homeschooling perspective..
We wanted something more challenging for my 3rd grader this year when it came to grammar and the foundation of English. This is the perfect fit for us! It's easily adaptable for homeschoolers and has lots of extra activities to use. The work text that goes alongside this for the student is great and the additional worksheets for practice are great for when the student needs more practice on a certain concept. My daughter loves the material and perhaps more importantly, I love it! It requires very little planning ahead of time and is very straightforward. I love that it's challenging for her, yet laid out in a way that's easy to teach and requires little planning!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HomeSchoolingMama Love the layout
I love the fact that the teaching guide includes teaching instructions, tips and answers in ONE book. The layout makes it easy to teach. I also like the rotation of two weeks of grammar followed by two weeks of writing.
