This is a comprehensive workbook that covers 4th grade English. This is my second time and second child going through this workbook. I like how the writing and grammar are split up with one writing unit and one grammar unit each month. It lays a solid foundation in the younger grades.
This book cover only grammar and writing. There is very little literature but you can incorporate literature very easy. I like this book because it give you flexibility, your child can do it on his/her own. It doesn't need a lot of help from the parent. Easy to understand instructions, short lessons but directly to the point with very good examples. It usually takes my kids about 30 minutes to finish the lesson each day. It give you flexibility. If your child doesn't understand a subject it give you plenty examples and explanations. You can do as much as you want with one subject or very little.
Love this curriculum. I have used BJU English and Grammar for all my children from grade 1-6. I love how the chapters are laid out with grammar teachings one week and a writing week the next. I also love how the lesson section thoroughly teaches the new concepts and offers examples of the teaching. I will use it again! My children are becoming strong writers and their writing is grammatically correct - thanks to this program.
