Curriculum

 

 

BJU Press is the core curriculum that we use in first and second grades for all subjects. Math is supplemented with computerized lessons, Saxon math,  Abeka math,  and Mammoth Math; as well as the use of manipulatives to provide a concrete, visual way to explain concepts. Reading is supplemented with small group, guided reading lessons. This gives the teacher a tangible way to monitor progress. Books are divided into levels based on the complexity of the text and comprehension questions.  It is a more accurate way to assess students than just a letter grade. Each  student must obtain 95% accuracy , across genres, to be moved to the next level. The levels are divided as follows:

A-D  Kindergarten

E-J    First Grade

K-M  Second Grade

N-P  Third Grade

Q-S   Fourth Grade

T-V   Fifth Grade

W-Z  Sixth Grade
