Mrs. Jennifer Cox, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Cox, who previously taught third grade and worked for the BJU Press, continues teaching elementary grades for BJU Press Distance Learning. "Being the mother of three children is quite an education in itself. Dealing with my own children gives me insight into the minds and hearts of young children. I want each child who finishes [a] BJU Press Distance Learning grade to come away with a very sound, excellent education. One way I try to do this is by making each lesson clear and interesting so that the student can grasp the objectives and build on previous knowledge. I want to inspire children to love learning and to understand and believe that only the Christian who trusts God and obeys His Word will live a life filled with blessing and reward."

"I want to encourage each child to look forward to learning each day and also to provide sufficient practice and review activities to help alleviate mom’s workload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this curriculum! BJU Distance Learning saved our homeschool year. Math was so frustrating before BJU. Now it clicks with our 3rd grader. My son actually said that math was fun now! With the ease of BJU Distance Learning, I will be going with them for all subjects in 4th grade. Shipping was very quick and so was setting up the distance learning online. So thankful that there's such a well rounded complete curriculum available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Education This is our first time using a video/online program with our son. Up until now, we used books only. We are very pleased with BJ Online and third grade is going very well. The teaching is excellent and it seems my son is so much more engaged in learning. The videos are well done and the whole program is easy to use. In fact, I'm sitting here with my laptop (working) while my son navigates through his lessons. It didn't take long for him to learn the routine. I still feel that I can be in control of his education and modify the daily plan if necessary. Overall, we are very pleased and the program is well worth the cost. Thank you BJU for producing quality materials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be better I have one specific complaint of all BJU studies. Why does BJU find it neccessary to criticize other religious groups? What purpose does this serve towards teaching Christian values of love for all mankind and tolerance for all religious beliefs? Isn't that what we want to teach our children? I feel BJU would do better to adopt a more general Christian worldview in their materials showing how Christians are the same in their desire to serve Christ and God regardless of their specific denomination rather than vilify specific groups. As for the video lessons- my kids love them. I don't know how I would carry on this homeschool journey without them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves reading We have struggled for so long and now she loves reading time! Thankful for the distance learning deal in December. It allowed me to purchase the program at a price I could afford. Just wish we had the program for more then 12 months!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this The decision to go with a complete curriculum this year was the best decision we made for our child. The online videos and assignments are a perfect fit for her as if the program was created literally just for her. We had her view the video samples on YouTube and she was hooked. DLO is easy for her to use independently although we both enjoy watching a few subjects like math, English and reading together most days. The hands-on activities and projects she completes for this program are fun and engaging. We love this program, it is working well in our home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Program! Great schooling option. Curriculum is colorful and captivating. My child enjoyed most of the videos some move a little slow but what classroom doesn't move slow at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 Grade online curricilum I like most of what BJU has to offer and the way they teach. The only "dislike" that I have, is that some extra pages are printed and some are not, and that it takes a lot of time to prepare everything and organize. I wish there would be one workbook with everything (all the extra printed pages) inside just one workbook for sunject. It takes a lot of time for student and parent to go back and forth finding the page they need for the lesson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product; more than we need We are using BJU Online with Books for 3rd grade. All of the material is very good. The only drawback would be that there is too much of it, especially for my energetic, outdoorsy student. I appreciate that in classes like English and Math I can teach the concepts without the online video, just from using the physical materials.
