Sunrise 2nd Edition
Reading 200 builds character and develops reading skills through two readers, Helping Hands (now with full-color illustrations) and Happy Hearts. Phonics and other reading mechanics are systematically taught and reviewed. Exercises teach three types of comprehension: literal, inference, and application.
The LightUnit study uses LightUnits 201-205 with Helping Hands and LightUnits 206-210 with Happy Hearts. Students may do some exercises independently. The Teacher’s Guide includes answers and ideas for class discussions.
The Worksheets study requires more teacher involvement. It is in two booklets containing a total of 64 two-page lessons. Quizzes and tests are sold separately.
A Teacher's Guide gives daily lesson notes with tips for introducing stories and discussing them with your class, and includes reproductions of student pages with answers filled in.
Bible 200 contains well-written stories from the Old Testament. They captivate the child’s imagination and bring the Bible to life.
Each LightUnit has sixteen lessons, providing two or three Bible lessons a week for a whole school term. A lesson consists of two pages with a simple Bible story and a corresponding activity such as sequencing events, unlocking a coded message, color-by-number, or simple crossword puzzles.
The Teacher’s Guide contains a more detailed version of each story for the teacher to tell or read. Without quizzes or tests, this course allows the child to enjoy the Bible and learn its truths without a heavy workload. Our goal is for Bible to be so enjoyable that the students look forward to every class. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.
Sunrise 2nd Edition
Sunrise 2nd Edition Language Arts 200 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use course. Each lesson begins with grammar and punctuation skills introduced in small increments. Next is review on material from the previous lesson and some of the material from earlier lessons. A daily penmanship activity is followed by practice on a weekly spelling word list.
The Teacher's Guide includes answers to the LightUnits, ideas, spelling word lists, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests for students who need to redo a test.
Math LightUnit 201 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Level 200. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.
The remaining nine LightUnits teach new skills and concepts such as telling time, reading simple graphs, adding/subtracting multi-digit numbers with carrying/borrowing, working with money, basic fraction concepts, and measurement in both the U.S. and metric systems.
Daily review on the addition/subtraction facts from 1-20 ensures mastery. Multiplication is introduced in Math 206, and by the end of the course, students have memorized the tables for 0, 1, 2, 5, and 10. Each lesson contains a realistic story problem or two using a theme (which varies with each LightUnit) such as pets, grandparents, and springtime.
The Teacher's Guide provides ideas, useful appendices, alternate LightUnit tests, and answers to the LightUnits. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.
