Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very thorough! My son went from not understanding to understanding very well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent program I have struggled with my daughter to get her to listen to me as her teacher. With the DVD teacher, it allows me to take a step back and let her be more independent. We live in the country, so online school is not an option as we don't have high speed internet. The day is longer than if I was teaching, but I know she is retaining more of what she is learning with the extra time, better teaching, and more practice. I like how they included a daily schedule of all the classes. I would suggest spreading out the history and science classes throughout the year instead of doing it all every day and then not having any during the second half of the year. I didn't noticed it stopped at day 90 until we were almost there! We didn't care for the handwriting videos. We felt they were too cheesy and slow. So we used a different handwriting book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for BJU English Finally found something that seems to be working for my son. He really enjoys the fact that they do work together and then they pause and do work on their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We love it! I have children in K, 2nd, and 4th grade. All of them are using the online videos and they are fantastic! Saves me a ton of work and I enjoy the facilitator online grade book to keep up with their grades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational and Entertaining! This program is an answer to prayer for us! My daughter is a right brain visual learner and this curriculum has worked beautifully with her. The puppets, skits and computer graphics hold her interest and the teachers do a great job of presenting the subject matter to the children. My only small complaint is that I find the teachers materials a bit confusing and sometimes difficult to locate. I wish all the appendix pages and teacher material for each subject were in a workbook form and could just be torn out in order. I probably just need to be better organized. Also, a suggested grading scale with the test answer keys would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent education My son loves the 2nd distance learning program through BJU Press. We started with the K4 distance learning, and just can't seem to find anything more thorough, or well suited for our son. The online portal is user friendly, and has been improved every year, and I have seen how responsive BJU is to reasonable, parental feedback. The curriculum is time tested and incorporates activities for all learning styles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engaging but frustrating Academically, the program is excellent. It covers all the important topics in a smartly organized way, and gives the student all the tools they need to handle new concepts. It's a great mix of learning new things, drilling, review, and playing games. My daughter enjoys the characters, the games they play, and the other things they learn about (Bible verses, construction, countries around the world). When she's not frustrated, she finds the program a lot of fun. However, the program is not super easy to use. There are three problems that frequently frustrate us. First, the video lessons often go too fast for her. She has to pause them frequently or she falls behind. Sometimes they are drilling math facts too quickly for her; other times, they are just setting up materials in a complicated way that takes time. This really frustrates my daughter - it makes her feel like she can't keep up, even if she is working really hard and understands the math concepts perfectly. Second, the book of manipulatives. It's hard to punch out the items, it takes a long time, they often tear, and taking them out leaves a plethora of paper fibers all over the floor. Third, the instructions are fairly disorganized. Often, the website tells me to put the wrong materials in the folder. E.g., some of those materials aren't used; other materials are needed but not listed; or the wrong amount is listed. (For example, it might say she needs 16 Unifix cubes and the number line, when actually she needs 30 cubes and the number packet.) This doesn't happen every day, but it happens often enough to annoy both of us - she has to pause in the middle of a lesson to get me to get more materials. HOWEVER, I will keep using BJU math, because I think it's worth it, despite all the trouble. My daughter loves math and is learning everything she needs to learn.
