In grade 1, your child will strengthen his or her phonics and reading comprehension skills, learn about early American history, start building a foundation of science knowledge, add, subtract, study spelling patterns, improve handwriting, and more. The BJU Press curriculum aims to teach for understanding and to develop your child’s critical thinking skills with high-interest materials that also encourage a love of learning. Each subject is presented in light of biblical truth in order to encourage the development of a biblical worldview.
When you purchase a teacher kit, you receive all of the essential teacher materials for Heritage Studies, Phonics & English, Math, Science, Reading, Spelling, and Handwriting—14 products total. Not only do you save money but you also gain the strength of a unified curriculum. Though choosing textbooks from many sources may seem to provide flexibility and customization, using a complete curriculum of BJU Press materials lets students focus on learning rather than on navigating yet another perspective. BJU Press textbooks provide consistency in scriptural and academic standards—every subject, every grade. And our teacher’s editions and ancillary materials allow for generous flexibility and customization within a unified biblical worldview.
