Reading

Sunrise Edition

The stories in the reader Bridges Beyond take the child to the past, to the animal world, and to other lands. Meet young Noah Webster who was fascinated with words, a fox who outwitted his enemy, a seal who wouldn’t swim, a French girl who puzzles over a mystery, and a Dutch family who wonders whether war will stop the stork’s return.

Each reader selection speaks of God’s power and principles. In addition, the LightUnits build reading and study skills. Students learn to “read between the lines," recognize basic story construction, understand the mechanics of poetry, and distinguish between fact and opinion.

Answer keys are in list format and are required for the course. The optional teacher’s guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Bible

Sunrise Edition

Bible 400 expands the study of the Gospels started in the third grade. The first LightUnit contains fictional stories that acquaint students with the worship, customs, and daily activities of Jews during the time of Christ. LightUnits 402 through 405 focus on Christ’s earthly ministry, His teachings, and His death and resurrection.

Each LightUnit has twelve lessons containing an interesting story and workbook activities. Each LightUnit also has two quizzes and a test. By doing two or three lessons per week, this course will cover the entire school year.

The Teacher’s Guide gives objectives and suggestions for teaching each lesson and provides alternate LightUnit tests for students who need to make up for a failing test score. Reproductions of all the LightUnit activities, quizzes, and tests with the answers are included. Separate answer keys are not required if the Teacher’s Guide is purchased.

Language Arts

Sunrise Edition

Language Arts 400 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use package. Grammar and punctuation skills are introduced incrementally at the beginning of each daily lesson, followed by exercises reviewing the material as well as more familiar skills. Each day’s lesson concludes with penmanship and spelling practice.

In addition to these basic English skills, students learn how to research information using encyclopedia and personal interviews, how to listen and take notes, and how to scan for specific information. Creative writing exercises use the book On Teaching Writing.

Answer keys are in list format and are required for the course. The teacher's guide provides teacher's notes, spelling word lists, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Math

Sunrise Edition

Math LightUnit 401 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 400. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

The remaining LightUnits introduce new skills and concepts in increments, while continuously reviewing earlier material. The metric system is taught simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement.

Daily flash-card exercises and speed drills cement the basic number facts into the child’s memory. Along with general fourth-grade math skills such as long division and fractions and decimals, a foundation for later geometry and algebra is laid in gentle, painless steps.

LightUnit themes used in story problems take students around the world from Italy to Australia to a Navajo reservation in New Mexico to a science station on Antarctica.

The Teacher's Guides give teaching tips, extra practice, solutions, LightUnit answers, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guides are purchased.

Social Studies

Sunrise Edition

The textbook Into All the World invites students to tour the world, learn the geography of each continent, and discuss stewardship of the resources God has supplied. The writing style is interesting and conversational, the book filled with pleasing illustrations.

You have two options for teaching this course: use the LightUnit study guides, or follow the textbook exercises. Both require the textbook. Either method provides a whole year of lesson material.

The LightUnits provide exercises, reviews, quizzes, and tests. Teacher materials include lesson notes, discussion/activity ideas, and reproducible maps. Outline maps are also available as individual student packets.

For the second option, use the questions provided in the textbook. This method requires more teacher interaction for review and test preparation. Teacher material contains answers for the text, discussion ideas, extra map work, and reproducible maps. Tests packets are sold separately. Individual student map packets are also available.
