Rated 4 out of 5 by Leann Great explanation of 5 step writing process
The Bob Jones Press English 3 is a great English program. The book alternates every 2 weeks between grammar and writing. The writing portion is what really sold me on the book. As early as 2nd grade, BJU English books focus on the 5 step writing process: planning, drafting, revising, proofreading, and publishing. They assign very interesting writing ideas and give a lot of ideas on how to write well. The revising and proofreading steps have a checklist for the student to go through to think about how the writing could be improved. In English 3, students complete 8 writing assignments, two being writing game instructions and a sound poem. As a homeschooling parent, this curriculum also gave me many tips on how to teach writing.
The grammar portion of the English book has two sections, a guided practice section and an independent practice. A box at the top of the first page of the lesson gives an explanation of the topic addressed.
Each chapter has a chapter review, cumulative review, and a test in a separate test booklet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiffani love it
We used the same worktext for 2nd grade and loved it! It was easy to use. It split up the grammar and writing to help lighten the work load. I really like how it guides the student through the writing process using other students' examples. We were very happy with the product. It looks like the grade 3 text is set up the same way and we look forward to starting our academic year.
