BJU Press Beginnings for Fives
Colorful and more challenging, this complete revision of BJU's easy-to-use, well-organized kindergarten program retains and enhances its strong phonics framework while encompassing all kindergarten subjects - reading, handwriting, listening, composition, science, social studies, motor skills, art, and literature - everything except math and Bible. Incorporating more review and drill, letters and sounds are introduced and reinforced with appealing activities. The easy-to-follow lesson plans include patterns and sketches for each project, weekly themes with a review day, and even snack suggestions which follow the weekly themes. The Teacher's Edition will help you guide your student toward a strong foundation in reading and writing. The Student Worktext provides daily follow-up, covering the forty-four phonics sounds and their common spellings. The Phonics & Review Cards are durable teaching aids with letters on one side, a miniature phonics chart, handwriting strokes, and service (sight) words. Phonics Charts are large (8 1/2" x 10 7/8") charts of the key words in the songs, rhyme lists, sentence cards for context, featured phonics characters, and the alphabet. The Beginnings Visuals include handwriting flip charts (for home schools - #208108) as well as spelling cards, story family characters and 36 visuals to help introduce concepts. The Phonics CD contains phonics songs and selected readings used in the K5 materials. Write Now! Handwriting is comprised of sentence model activity sheets to help your student model writing strokes for precursive letters, numerals, and sentences. Phonics Practice for K5 contains thirty weeks of phonics practice. The book correlates with K5 Beginnings, but can also be used alone. The Complete Home School Kit contains all of the items listed below without an "*". Non-essential supplementary items (which are not included in the kit) are marked with an "*".
