Phonics & English, Reading, Handwriting 1 Online Only (3rd ed.) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Phonics Instruction My children have all enjoyed taking Phonics with Mrs. Walker. Some of it is a little outdated, for example, we had to explain the character of "Chip" (the enormous computer) to my current first-grader who was streaming the lessons on her tablet. However, overall, it is a fun program that my children have enjoyed. Mrs. Walker's positive attitude is contagious and my children have grown to love reading through this course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Foundation for Reading We have used the First Grade Phonics and Reading 1 class six times. We found the class to be such a rich, well-rounded approach to teaching reading. As a parent, I loved the Mom's minutes that allowed me to know exactly what my children were going to be learning that day without having to watch the lesson myself. And Mrs. Walker's guidance and helpful insight into the teaching process were also invaluable in helping me to set reasonable expectations for our children. The way the class was broken up into the composition, phonics, review, handwriting, and reading sections made it easy to have natural breaks. Even with having two children who struggled to learn to read, they stayed interested due to the variety of teaching methods and media used. The only reason I gave four stars for "ease of use" is because of the comparison to other BJUP online courses. It does take more preparation than other classes (but this is actually multiple courses in one). I found that spending the time to watch the mom's minutes, pull the worksheets, and extras took more time than other courses so I gave the four star rating based on the comparison. In that way it was "harder" to use but by no means excessive - it was very well balanced when compared to the amount of material and length of the class. My children LOVED this class and I'm so thankful for such a high quality product that gave me the confidence that my children were given the great foundation in reading which is so necessary for future learning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from English & Phonics 1st grade It is a very good product but because we already started teaching in the fall using books. Now we order the video in spring and I feel like repeating and delaying the English process. But my son loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a wonderful class. .... I am very thankful to be able to use the Phonics, & English, Reading, Handwriting 1 course with my fifth child. Mrs. Walker is a great teacher and my son looks forward to class and is very successful thanks to all these lessons. I have home schooled all from the beginning and this is my first opportunity to use this class. The class is interesting and enjoyable for my child and does a an excellent job teaching phonics as well as reading. He enjoys the composition time at the beginning of each day where the teacher engages the child in the theme/topic of the day and then prompts them to write 3 or 4 sentences about the topic. The only issue with the course is that it does take us about an hour and a half to two hours each day to complete. I intermingle it with other courses and so this is achievable. Overall I really appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this course and I have highly recommended it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the program, just wish it was a bit louder My daughter loves learning with Mrs. Walker. She loves when she has them bounce a ball or do something physically while they are practicing their memory words. It really helps her to move around while learning. Our only suggestion would be to adjust the audio. It's really hard to hear her on a laptop even turned all the way up. We tried watching on my dad's system with surround sound speakers, and we still had to turn the audio really high to hear. I know it takes some work to go through all the videos and turn the audio levels up, as we edit videos for a living and have had to do this for a client, but I think it would really help a lot of families out if at all possible. Thanks for all you guys are doing!
