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 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent curriculum for 8 year old child with autism spectrum disorder. The ease of use is wonderful. Everything is carefully planned out and easy to follow. The teacher's on the DVD's help create a positive feeling about learning. I just completed the first six weeks of second grade. I am pleased with my purchase. October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice! My 6- year old son and I are enjoying this program very much. DVD content is engaging for a typical 2nd grader and it teaches each concepts very thoroughly and illustrations are excellent. My son retains and understands all he learns. He loves Science October 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It meets our needs and exceeded our expecctations! We have a unique situation, triplet 8 year olds and an almost 7 year old. The quality content of this program, coupled with individual like instruction, makes it the perfect fit for our family. The teacher/parent prepared materials are wonderful and lay out what I need to do and have prepared each day for the children. The DVDs (teacher) instruction are interesting, engaging, and keep to exactly what is stated in the lesson objectives and plans. Our BJU Representative gave us excellent suggestions to make the program run even easier and we are thrilled to have made the transition to this after traditionally homeschooling on our own with an eclectic approach for the prior 17 years. We are looking forward to a successful school year with our "mini" (home)school! September 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Product Ever! I grew up in a private school before heading to university and I knew it was the right environment for my children. When our son was born we knew very early on that he was extremely bright. When he begin begging at 3 to learn to read we decided it was time to look for a curriculum. We started him with BJU in pre-K and hired a retired teacher to help him through it while mommy worked. We were so impressed with the quality of the curriculum that we decided that we would continue using BJU. As he has progressed and is now in 2nd grade I can't believe how much he is learning and retaining. BJU just keeps exceeding my expectations and we couldn't be happier. October 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grade 2 DVD with books This is a sold Biblical program. What I like: Bible is great, Science is very good and keeps the students attention, Math and English are very well done and the students can work relatively independently. Reading is good, involved and we do not do all work assigned, but a very good reading program. What I do not like: History- no study guides only the notebook, this is due to this being the older edition. Handwriting, the DVD is really pointless. I have my students only do the work text but I really like they are learning cursive. Spelling is the older edition, really would like the DVD updated to meet the latest spelling text. Overall this is a great program. The Biblical integration is amazing. I just hope they update the DVDs with the work texts b/c I have another 2nd grader coming up soon. September 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reading program and Bible integration The whole 2nd grade curriculum is very good, but the reading in particular is exceptional. My son struggles with reading, but he is getting so much better at it since beginning Bob Jones curriculum. He says his favorite subject is reading! Also, Bible is integrated in literally every subject. The 2nd grade Bob Jones DVD curriculum is very much like Christian private school at home. January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd grade DVD I like the lesson plans being by day so you can see the whole day on one page. That really saves me from going to each subject for the next lesson plan. It's nice that you give both options. I have them in a binder and refer to both frequently. at times the individual one is handy as well. My only complaint is that it is very difficult to find the extra items to be printed from the disks. Even with the abbreviations I find myself looking in every possible place to find what I'm looking for. At times the lesson plans will give a page number. I have not found that in adobe you can look up page numbers so I have to look through each folder until I find the page number I'm looking for. For example English day 92 lesson 82 "God Made Seven Days in a Week" S43 & "There are Twelve Months in a Year" S48 I had no idea that these were songs. There was no way to find the pages until I tried every other adobe folder and after much searching when I got to songs I discovered that it was copy protected and I can't even print the pages for my child. Very frustrating. The folders are not in page order. Even that would make it easier to find. I don't know a lot about Adobe and there might be ways to fix these problems but I haven't discovered them. It's taking me hours to prepare 1 week of lesson plans for 1 child because I'm having to search and print a lot. When grading spelling pages adobe is in folders by unit. The unit number is only on the first page of the lessons. It's difficult to remember what unit he is on when I go to grade his papers each day. I sometimes have to go back and look at the lesson plans. Putting the unit # at the bottom would be very helpful. The CD's make it difficult to bookmark which lessons we have completed and which ones are next. I'm having to write the lesson number at the top of my child's page each day so he knows which lesson he needs to watch that day to go with his worktext pages. Is there an easier way I just haven't discovered. I do love this curriculum. I would recommend it to anyone. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome We are 1 week into our first year with BJU. We absolutely love the distance learning dvds. It really helps mom too with the mom minutes. Absolutely love the program so far and compared to other homeschool experiences we have had, this one has gone much smoother and has been much easier to understand and follow!!!! Love how each subjuect reinforces our faith! We simply couldn't be happier! September 26, 2013
