Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worktext has a lot of "busy work" Love the reading text - the stories are interesting and captivating. The progression from the beginning of 1st grade to the end is appropriate. The worktext is just okay for us, though. I felt like it was more busy work and we ended up just talking through the answers instead of making her write, cut, paste etc. Though it is grade appropriate work, it was always the first thing we skipped on busy days. Overall, the reading books would suffice on their own. They even have a work page at the end of each section that has enough of a review on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, age appropriate reading program My daughter loved BJU Reading this year. The readers progressed in skill throughout the year. The teacher manual was full of tips and discussion and comprehension questions from literal to interpretive. These questions are necessary to help develop the student's critical thinking. It is not enough to just read the words but understand the story. While my daughter's word reading skills could have moved faster, the comprehension material and skills being developed were spot on. We didn't find the program too fast or too slow... okay, Goldilocks "just right". The workbook was colorful. The stories were fun, some character lessons, classics, the works. GREAT program.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not easy to integrate without also using BJU Press English I have been disappointed with this curriculum as my daughter seems to excel with reading. Yet, this program is not challenging enough for her. I also struggle with the teacher's manuals as they are overloaded with information. While I am sure the information is meant to be helpful, I find it very tedious to "sort through it" in order to keep the lesson within a reasonable amount of time. I also find myself advancing my daughter through the lessons just to give her the chance to read--the discussion per lesson is far more than the actual reading. The worksheets do cover many helpful skills.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use and goes with text I am glad you added the back for more practice-- that adds value to the page. Easy to pull out pages but the cover comes off and is frustrating to the kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great program, some assembly required I love this program. I love the stories that build confidence and skills in my young reader. I love the work that goes along with the skills being learned. I don't love the extra prep-work that goes along with it - lots of printing or making things that could have easily been included in the materials ready to go, then you don't really use them but one day (for example, I had to create word family trees from scratch for an activity. We did the activity, and never used it again. For the amount of work that went into it, I'd like to refer back to it several times at least.). Overall, I've found I have to skip some of the activities that are written for a classroom setting, and I don't do the things that require a lot of preparation for a little amount of learning. Other than that, we enjoy the stories and the worksheets that use skills such as cutting and gluing, and not always just a pencil.
