Our 2019 homeschool catalog is hot off the press and will show up soon in your mailbox! We brought back the Homeschool in Action Photo Challenge and had twice as many participants this year as last. The competition was close, with so many incredible pictures of your homeschool experiences. We included as many pictures as we could in the catalog, but here are the winners.
New Distance Learning Courses
As a homeschool dad, I’m thrilled to see how the self-paced video courses enable my daughters to take ownership of the learning. My wife and I still have final say over the activities and the grades, but with a flexible roadmap, our fourth grader and second grader can learn on their own and at their own pace. Plus, our four-year-old is enjoying the K4 videos with Mrs. Lawson, Mrs. Liston, and all their puppet friends. She gets exposed to important concepts in a fun way that will help her when my wife starts to teach her how to read in K5.
This year BJU Press is rolling out five new Distance Learning courses. You can see sample lessons for each course on YouTube.
Children learn about math through experience with Mrs. Rulapaugh. Through the farm family and their pet mouse, your child will see how math can be used to help in meaningful ways. This 180-day course introduces children to simple math concepts through hands-on activities and engaging on-screen demonstrations for visual learners.
This amusement park theme of the course keeps your children eagerly anticipating the next story. Mrs. Walker encourages children to think deeply by asking higher-order thinking questions. She also continues to build their phonics and vocabulary skills. They will love reading the lessons in this 180-day course.
Mrs. Jarrell invites children to learn grammar concepts and apply them to their writing. Children will love the special segments she uses to enhance learning. In the “Super Marks” segment, super punctuation marks will dispel confusing communication. This is a 180-day course.
Physics is only available through Distance Learning Online. Since physics can be an especially challenging course, Mr. Harmon offers optional tutorials on particularly difficult physics problems that students will encounter. Distance Learning Online is the best way to keep the optional format of these tutorials organized. This 180-day course will challenge your twelfth grader’s science and math skills and prepare him or her for college-level study.
In this capstone heritage studies course, Mrs. Bullock walks students through the fundamentals of economics. Mrs. Bullock suggests you do this 90-day course in the spring of the senior year as a follow-up to the American government 90-day course.
