Mrs. Evanna Walker, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Walker has eight years’ experience teaching first grade at Bob Jones Elementary School. “My first love is to teach a child to read-primarily so that he can read God’s Word for himself and share it with others.

Phonics & English, Reading, Handwriting 1 DVD with Books (3rd ed.) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you, BJU! This program is just the match for my son's personality. He's progressing so well. Before we got this program, I felt like I was failing him because in our busy household I didn't have the time to teach him all he wants to learn. But now, a few months after ordering the phonics program, both he and I are quite pleased with his improvement in reading and writing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Curriculum We love Ms. Walker!!! She made a lasting impact on my children. This curriculum is so easy to follow and the setting for each lesson on DVD is super fun. Even my older child loves to sit in and "help sister" with first grade phonics and reading! She remembers the lessons and they love Ms. Walker so much! We have been very pleased with the DVDs and only had a couple problems with scratches.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kids learn very thoroughly, needs updating Pros: The lessons are thorough and detailed. Learning is absorbed well and lessons retained. The teacher is engaging and visuals entertaining. Activities are varied and fun with themes that tie everything together well. The reading and writing portions are fun and make for a great scrap book. Cons: Some of the written work on screen does not match provided written work sheets or handouts and out of date. Viewing material is very (VERY) dated. Some of the vocabulary is not widely used and requires explaining... such as Pop for Soda or names of things that have changed over the years. Sometimes the crafts and activities way take too much of our day and not enough impact to allot that much time. Though tedious, the method used teaches and explains well enough that required lessons are completed and understood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reading/English First Grade My son attends public school but has been struggling with reading and is not getting enough support from his teachers. We have been using this curriculum this summer to supplement his education and help him catch up with his grade level. He has progressed significantly and has a much better understanding of phonics and decoding words. Ms. Walker is an excellent distance learning teacher and keeps my son engaged in his lesson.
