BJU - Great Math & Handwriting Curricula

by G. Hood
(South Carolina)

We used BJU Press materials for my oldest children's K5 experience. The hard drive option was easy to use, and comes with a 13-month lease. Since it requires a computer to run, it can pose problems if your computer crashes, as ours did.

My kids enjoyed it, for the most part. We did some of the MANY experiments and activities (too many, in my opinion). My kids constantly thought they had to do ALL of the activities. I don't know how much construction paper we wasted, but it was a bunch!

As far as what they learned, it was worth it! They did well in all subjects, and only had to have extra help with reading and calendar comprehension. They did get a bit bored with having to watch all the videos and kept asking me if I could just teach them.

I was especially happy with the Math and Handwriting. They learned to write neatly and beautifully -- a lot better than regular printing, as it was precursive. Other than calendar issues, the Math was really easy for them to understand. The worktext pages were very colorful and enticing.

My children enjoyed it overall, and say they miss their "teachers."

We will be trying Sonlight this year, but are sticking with BJU Press Math and Handwriting.
