Learning Phonics

BJU Press phonics teaches students to associate individual letters and sounds, then shows them how to recognize phonics patterns through word families. This two-part approach prepares students to engage more easily with the words they will encounter. This program also builds familiarity with high-frequency words, or service words, which do not follow normal phonics rules.

Shaping Biblical Worldview

Worldview shaping beings early by encouraging students to apply the four key themes addressed throughout the course:

  1. God is great, and God is good.
  2. God created me and all things.
  3. The Bible is God’s word, and it is true.
  4. I learn in order to serve God and others
