    Did you know Bradley is learning to read this year?? Looking for good books to use in the process has been quiet a challenge. But Mighty Reader Workbook by Heidi Cooley has been a huge help in the process. I don't have to stress about prescreening all of the stories because I know they are good wholesome stories that are teaching the truth and love.

    Mighty Readers Workbook covers some of my favorite Bible stories include: Noah and the Ark, Jonah and the Great Task, Joseph and the Colorful Coat, Moses and the Ten Plagues, David and Goliath, Three Friends in the Fiery Furnace, Daniel and the Lions, Queen Ester, Jesus is Born, Zacchaeus Climbs a Tree, Jesus Feeds the 5,000, Jesus and the Cross and Jesus and the Empty Tomb.

    Each story has a list of vocabulary words already selected for me with the definitions in the workbook. Each story is broken down into a week of work helping children spend time focusing on the story and learning several great reading skills each week including comprehension questions, context clues, inferencing, key details, problem solution, visualization, synonyms, connecting writing with reading and text features.

    Mighty Readers Workbook is a great addition to any homeschool home or a parent looking to help your children with some additional reading. I would highly recommend this book to any of my friends.

    If you love Mighty Readers Workbook for grade one I recommend you also check out Mighty Readers Workbook for grade two.

    As a homeschool Mom, I am always looking for a curriculum to help strengthen my children's reading and comprehension skills. I especially love it when I find something that incorporates the Bible into it as well. The Mighty Reader Workbook for Grade 1 does just that. My children can practice and strengthen their reading skills while learning about popular Bible stories.

    Each week starts off with a list of Vocabulary words, Biblical Terms and Skills that will be gone over in the story and the work pages that week. The next page is the Bible story is paraphrased in a way that makes it easy to read for a First Grader. It also paragraphs that are numbered. The vocabulary words and Biblical terms are in red.

    There is a work page that uses the Bible story for 6 days. Now if your child is doing great and is eager to do more pages at a time I say go for it! The first thing your child will do is read the story. Then for four days, the page asks three questions and the children will answer them by writing in a box. While I would have preferred lines instead, I do understand that each first grader could be at a different writing level so I am sure that this is an easy way for most children to write. Days 5 and 6 have the children writing sentences and drawing an illustration to go along with the story. This book is designed to last for 13 weeks but that is up to you and your child's development.

    I am very pleased with the way this workbook is set up and how the Bible stories are created. I know my daughter will enjoy using it!

    I would like to thank Lifeway and B&H Publishing Group for allowing us to review this book. The opinions and impressions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

    So we are a former homeschooling family and though our children are in public school now, we still add to the curriculum once they are home. ESPECIALLY for my son whose teacher does not give him homework. We started using this book for work with his reading comprehension and focus. I highly recommend to both homeschool and traditional school families. The lessons take him about 15-20 minutes and build upon each other each day. There are 6 days of work each week, with one day off for Sunday.

    While this book is for 1st graders, my 2nd-grade son is working through it on his own afterschool each day. However, if your child is a first grader, I recommend working through the book with them.

    {FYI: I received this book in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}

    This workbook is designed to help first graders develop reading and writing skills using thirteen favorite Bible stories. Each story is designed to be used for one week (six days). The text is five to eight short paragraphs in length. After each reading (a variety of methods are suggested), there is a page with questions to answer, a writing prompt, or an illustration prompt. The lessons are structured to take about 20 minutes each day.

    I have a son who just began first grade. He would struggle to read the stories, and most of the writing work would require significant parental help. I'm quite sure he hasn't learned concepts such as adjectives and synonyms, so maybe the book is geared more for a mid- to end of first grade level. The book is definitely designed, as the intro says, for the parent to be a reading partner, not a book for your child to work through alone.

    Here is a sample:

    Day 1: (pg. 50)

    1. Read the story as an echo read with someone in your home.

    2. Reread paragraph 5. What lesson can you learn from the story? Underline evidence in the text in yellow to show where you found your answer.

    3. What is the problem in paragraph 2? Write it in the box.

    4. What is the solution in paragraph 4? Write it in the box.

    Day 3: (pg. 52)

    1. Read the story as a cloze read with someone in your home.

    2. Reread paragraph 1. Circle the words "bow down" in blue. Write the words in the box. Circle in blue the letters in the words that make the same sound.

    3. Reread paragraph 4. Circle the word "rescue" in orange. What is a synonym or word that means the same thing as rescue? Write it in the box.

    4. God is pleased when we have faith in Him. Write the word "faith" neatly in the box below. Trace the vowels in orange and the consonants in blue.

    I like the book and I like how it teaches a wide variety of reading skills using Scripture. If I was homeschooling, or looking for something to do during summer months/school vacation, I'd definitely consider utilizing it in my curriculum. For us though, with other children to consider and established family devotion routines, I don't see this working for us during the school year on top of other school work.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher (B&H Kids) in exchange for my review.

    In the Mighty Reader Workbook for Grade 1 by Heidi Cooley, students can practice their reading skills while learning about popular Bible stories. There are thirteen stories and six work pages for each story. The work pages focus on different skills such as: comprehension, context clues, problem/solution, visualization, writing, and more. The repetition of just one story per week allows the child practice and explore the story from different angles.

    I am homeschooling my daughter for first grade and using the Mighty Reader Workbook to supplement our curriculum as my daughter loves to read and we're a bit ahead of the curriculum. My daughter enjoys reading the stories, but I expected the stories to be longer than three-fourths of one page. The words are suited to a first grade level. Some harder words are included in the text and these are addressed in a helpful vocabulary section that proceeds the main reading page for each story.

    I liked that each day's workpage calls for a different reading strategy (echo read, choral read, partner read, independent read, etc.) and my daughter enjoys it. Most of the workpages involve the child writing out some sort of answer. I wish all of the pages had lines to help with neater writing. Many pages have big boxes to write in. Even though I am there to guide, her sentences tend to get a bit messy.

    The Mighty Reader Workbook is designed for parent and child to do together. My mommy heart loves that we are smiling over reading and Bible stories. I recommend this book to parents of first graders who are looking for extra reading and comprehension practice. This book is not limited to homeschool use. I think it would be good practice for any child in first grade.
