Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."

He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”

K5 Online with Books is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Program We are using BJU DLO for a child on the spectrum who enjoys video content. I have used other programs for older children in the past, and was not at all pleased with the academic content. BJU has great academic and biblical content. There are times that the material can be a little slow, but I see the need as every child won't move at the same pace. With the videos, we have the option to pause or to speed things up as we see fit. There is some amount of prep work for the daily lessons, but this is to be expected with any good K5 curriculum. Opportunities for hands-on learning are not left out of this program simply because it is DLO , which we greatly appreciate. Other parents / postings were very helpful in organizing before I introduced it to my student . We chose to use a 2 binder system: one binder with weeks 1-36 separated by tabs with all the student sheets and guides behind each tab, and a Mon-Fri binder for my student where I place the sheets for the week by day as well as the various character folders that are needed for each subject. This has worked GREAT and gives us a smooth filing system, as well as lots of independence for my learner. I'm glad we took the leap to go w/ the DLO program and we will definitely continue using it in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Confusing to start the program I will admit my background is in business and this is my first time to try homeschooling. I ordered the online program with all the textbooks. I was disappointed when I opened the box and then had no instructions about how to start. I feel like the last two weeks I have spent many hours stumbling around figuring things out. A master guide that says: create login, watch orientation video, mom's minutes, cut out characters, pop out manipulatives. . .etc would have been a huge help. My other recommendation would be to have a master list that says what you will need for the year: 3 ring folders, crayons, glue, zip lock bags, popsicle sticks. . . Instead of having to go through each subject and coming up with a list. Or better still charge an optional extra fee and include all necessary materials. I was impressed with the videos. They pack bible truths in with all the subjects. My daughter loves watching them. Every day she is excited to start her new video. I know she will learn a lot this year; I just wish they made it a litter easier for parents who are new to the program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent experience We are on week four and we are absolutely loving this program. it is thorough, fun and teaches the kids in a manner that is easy to understand, but doesn't bore them either. We are having a great time! I recommend it to all my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! My son learned so much with the daily 1 hour k-4 last year! This year we are on lesson 15 in K-5. The transition period only lasted a few lessons as K-5 is about 1 1/2 hours. A few lessons into K-5, my son asked if he could watch K-4 instead. So I knew K-5 was more challenging. I let him watch K-4 those few days he asked as we still had 30 unwatched lessons and 3 months till K-4 online ended. Then to better help with the transition, I let him watch Beginnings one day and the Bible and Math the next day. That helped a lot. He will work his way up to the 3 daily videos. I love this program!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Engaging This is our first year using BJU DLO, and so far it is going well. My kindergartener is thrilled when it is school time. Loves to watch the videos, sing, dance, and learn all at the same time. My only frustration is the amount of prep work that is required of me the parent along with all the extra supplies that I need to have for course work. It is great and fun, but too much work for a busy parent of multiple other children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We love BJU! BJU is a solid and biblically integrated curriculum that equips my child to achieve academic goals but also grow spiritually. I am a working single mom who cringed at the idea of public schooling. DLO through BJU enabled me to make homeschooling work for us. My only regret (as a working mom with 3 kids, 2 currently doing this program) is having so many things I need to print. I'd enjoy an option to pay a bit more for preprinted lesson handouts. Otherwise, I LOVE this curriculum!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Very Pleased We are about a month away from finishing K5, & we have been very impressed overall. Daughter is already reading books classified at 1st & 2nd grade levels. I do find the organization of the class schedules & materials sometimes cumbersome. Each class has its own calendar/prep list to follow in print and online, which is nice, but sometimes I wish I had a way online to group the lessons together by day & prep with an all-subjects-at-once view. Also, there are a lot of extra sheets to download and print; I'm not sure why so many of the extras are included in the backs of the books and yet so many are left up to the parent to print. I wish they could all be in the books ready to go. We opt not to do many of the crafts, but I'm glad they are included for the times when we do choose to do them. Daughter seems to love the videos overall, and the worktext pages do go along well with the lesson materials and seem to do a good job of reinforcing the concepts. We plan to use the same system for 1st grade and see how things go with a little heavier course load this coming year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fundamental teaching. I have yet to actually use product since my daughter won't start until this fall. I have went through all the books and supplies and am very excited to start this curriculum with her. My nephew is finishing it this year and from what I have seen the teachers are great and the papers go right along with the lesson. In every subject you get a great Bibical foundation. Would recommend to anyone looking to home school.
