My family had the opportunity to review a wonderful curriculum BJU Press Focus on Fives
BJU Press Focus on Fives
by BJU Press Homeschool
https://www.bjupresshomeschool.com/product/524439 and we loved it! We have covered subjects such as science, social studies, handwriting, phonics, and reading, all in this one curriculum! The lessons are very well designed and I am confident in using it that our kindergarten student will be more than ready for first grade! The teacher edition books guide me each step of the way and I have enjoyed each complete lesson so far and I am so excited to continue!
- Phonics Practice book
- Phonics and Review Cards
- Write Now! book
- 34 Reading Books
And for the teacher:
- Phonic Charts with Alphabet Cards, Handwriting Charts, Spelling Cards, High-Frequency Word Cards, Word Family Cards, and Phonic Characters
- Spiral-bound Visuals Flip Chart
- Six spiral-bound Teacher’s Edition Books
And let me say this: I LOVE it all! It is thorough, beautiful, well written and durable and I love the multi sensory aspect of each lesson!
One of my favorite aspects of this curriculum is the four key themes: God is great, and God is good; God created me and all things; the Bible is God’s Word, and it is true; and I learn in order to serve God and others. The key themes blend beautifully with the core subjects being taught and helps encourage me as I strive to bring up children learning essential skills to succeed in academics as well as knowledge of the God that created us.
Our sweet MaeMae loves school, loves to learn and loves a good conversation. She loves writing and listening to stories and being creative. She has struggled a bit with reading and we felt she was a little “behind” according to her age. She knows all letters and letter sounds and was gaining a little ground in sounding out words but we had yet to find something to help further her knowledge in reading in a way that would encourage her to continue. This curriculum has helped us see her grow to identify sight words and read more independently. She is EAGER and EXCITED to begin each day! She feels the joy of learning and is gaining confidence more and more each day! BJU Press Focus on Fives is perfect for our bright kindergartner and I am confident she is learning all she needs to be prepared for first grade!
We are still using the curriculum on a daily basis. This program is a complete program in itself in my opinion and I find no need for a supplement of any kind, aside from math. It has truly made a difference in our home with our little learner!
I hope you will hop over to some of the social media links and research this program for yourself and see if you think it will meet the needs of one of your precious learners
