Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."


Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."


Mrs. Debra Overly, BS, MS

Mrs. Debra Overly, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Overly, a mother of three, has experience teaching several elementary grades. "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. Most importantly, I want to present Christ in each subject that I teach. Each child should hear the gospel and then see in a very practical way how it can change a sinner."


Mrs. Jennifer Cox, BS

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."


Mrs. Evanna Walker, BS

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. He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I love these books!! They don't take the kids long, but keep their brain active and remembering through the summer vacation. Would recommend to everyone!! October 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by bju is a good curriculum yet time consuming The dvd's are great in a lot of ways, but they require massive amounts of time. My son spends twice as much time on 2nd grade as my girls do on 4th (using another curriculum). The extras that are great when you have a class of kids just seem like a waste with one student. I would like to see the DVDs catered to the individual and not extra time consuming fluff. That's just our experience so far. However, I fully believe BJU produces great students. September 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Second Grade DVD Kit Used Abeka for two years and this year decided to give BJU a try. Very satisfied with the product, very happy that we made the switch. Many pro's with a few con's. The pro's for us include the fun and always different teachings. Very visual and engaging for the child. The worksheets are also colorful and fun to do wile being challenging academically. The con's for us include not having the Teachers edition in hand. We are not liking the cd's at all. Considering that we already are paying such a high price for the whole kit, I hoped all of that would already be included. Cd's are VERY inconvenient. Also wish there wasn't so much other things on other cd's for me to refer to or print. Got very confusing in the beginning. The other con is that because BJU is always updating their videos and worktext, I have found that quite a few times the dvd lesson did not correspond with the dvd manual or the textbooks looked different, which confused the student and myself. With all that said, my child and I LOVE BJU and are planning on continuing with in for years to come. Hopefully the TE's become an item included, to have a choice of CD or Book upon ordering would be SUPER! September 10, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by The program is great with the exception of Spelling this year. We are only 2 weeks into school and I am very disappointed in the spelling this year. Last year was so awesome and we were expecting the same this year. I love how reading is set up this year. Love that English, spelling, reading,and handwriting are all separated this year. The thing I like most about this program is that I am not the teacher. That the teacher is on the screen. That seems to work for ASD son. September 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Off to a Great Start! This is our first year doing homeschooling. My son is enjoying the start of his 2nd grade year with BJU DVD's. The teachers are wonderful and friendly! The work is challenging, but not too hard or too easy. It took me a little while to figure out exactly where to find the extra support materials, whether on a disk, back of the student book, or the CD in the back of teachers addition book. It is going more smoothly now and I am really enjoying the classes right along with my 2nd grader! Looking forward to seeing how he does the rest of the year! August 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! This is my first year using BJU and it has been a wonderful experience. The videos are top notch and the teaching is phenomenal. The lessons are interesting, engaging, thorough, thought-provoking, Biblically-based and FUN (lessons are taught using graphics, experiments, "field trips," puppets and special guests). My daughter actually gets excited to do work, especially with science. This makes me very happy because she wants to learn. BJU has definitely made my life a little easier with three children. With the dvd program, I let the teachers teach and I'm there if they need extra help. The curriculum includes a detailed schedule of what needs to be done everyday. This way, my children are able to work independently as I monitor. Thank you BJU! July 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 It worked well for our family! My son loved them! I am homeschooling 4 children, so the DVD program helps my children keeps going while I am working with the other children. July 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fabulous With One Exception I LOVE the dvd's for my 2 children. The teachers do a great job keeping the classes exciting! I am very impressed with the detailed information given in the Orientation of each subject. The teachers manuals would be much easier to use if they were stil providedl in hard copy form other than cd. That is the only reason I am not giving a glowing 5 star review in each category. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Excellent review of this year's material. The stories were interesting and kept my child interested. The level of difficulty was exactly what I would have wanted in a summer review product. June 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by First time user I will say, this book is good so far. My son just started using it and he thinks the lay out is easy to follow. Instructions are also easy to understand and work is done in less that 15 mins sometimes. June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My review of Gr.2 DVD learning. I really like the overall curriculum! I like how I can use the DVDs or teach it myself. Very flexible with my schedule. I like that I can mix grades if our son needs a little harder curriculum than what we have. The first time I looked at BJU I really liked it, but chose to use a coarse that our church's school used because we wanted to put him in that school. l'm really upset with myself for not using BJU sooner. May 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd grade English long distance learning We love the ease of this product. The content is very good. The only down fall is the cost and I can't save it for my next child without having to pay the full price again. February 12, 2013
