Rated 5 out of 5 by MyThreeSons Excellent Spelling program
We love this edition of the spelling program which we've used with two of our children. The pages are colorful and attractive but not cluttered. The spaces for for answers are just right for a third grader and the types of activities that vary from week to week are enjoyable. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars on ease of use is because if you tear out the perforated pages, the new week's list is on the back of the previous week's work which means you need to remember to keep that page so that you have your spelling list and first day's activity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Neil Secularized version of the first edition!
Almost all biblical references removed from this 2nd edition Spelling work text. That's right, REMOVED. Although my children like this new 2nd edition because it's half as challenging as the previous edition (they also would like chocolate candy bars for dinner, that does not mean we give it to them!) We chose the older 1st edition because of the biblical references and christian teachings all throughout the work text. Now all these have been moved to the teachers text and removed from the children's work text which makes no sense to us. The scripture references are KJV which means they are older English, but our experience is that the children learn this easily, and once mastered they can read any version of the bible as they grow older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMom Love it!
After last year, I decided to go with another provider for spelling. The previous edition was just not "doing it" for my son. However, when I heard there was an updated version, I wanted to give it a try as we love BJU. I am so glad I did! Leaps and bounds better than the last one! Colorful, fun, and the content in organized well on the page.

My son originally started the year out using the older spelling book, but it got lost and I ordered a new one. I received the updated version and he loves it so much more!!
