Rated 2 out of 5Â by Coaldog BJU Reading Worktext book for 3rd grade
I love the stories in the reading book, but I am very unhappy with the worktext book. The workbook pages are too easy, we teach the vocabulary given in the teacher's manual but there are no practice pages in the worktext that go along with the vocabulary words, and the worktext book focuses more on the phonics then reading comprehension. I would love to see this book re-written pulling in common core, focusing on reading skills and have more reading comprehension questions (students have to write out the answers). Also, there are no benchmarker tests in this series to help the teachers make sure the students are progressing throughout the year. It is also in need of a beginning of the year reading placement test. Because I am so unhappy with the worktext book, I am trying to convience our school to change to a different series.
