Rod and Staff Reading: Grades 1 - 4

Bible Nurture and Reader Series

I want to introduce you to the most unique Reading Program I know. You can find many others that will teach your child to read, but Rod and Staff's "Bible Nurture and Readers Series" (Grades 1-4) is unique in that it imparts Bible knowledge in the teaching process, thus fulfilling God's command (Eph. 6:4). Your child will be reading biblical truth instead of "fun stuff." It is important that every child learn to read, but more important that he develop a desire for profitable reading rather than just entertainment. In this course the child is reading to learn, not just learning to read. Every child needs to develop an appetite for serious reading at an early age. "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child" (Prov. 22:15), and we certainly do not want to encourage it with frivolous reading material. Many curriculums prioritize the fun approach and develop that mentality in their students. But most of us, by now, are quite aware that life is not fun. We can have peace and joy in the Lord and find satisfaction in our labor, but life is serious and consequential. We need to prepare our children to face the realities of living a serious and useful life. The biblical content of the reading material is what sets this program apart from the rest.

Furthermore, the "Bible Nurture and Readers Series" is academically sound. Having personally used it to teach, I can tell you that it works.

We switched reading curriculums to Rod and Staff after school started this fall. My son (age 7) was very frustrated with the readers and phonics we had used for 2 years and was loosing ground with his reading. We started Rod and Staff Reading and Phonics with Grade 1 Unit 2. My son is liking reading and phonics much more now and is making improvements every day. My 8-year-old changed his phonics after he saw his brother's and is making more rapid progress. I think the stories and exercises in the books appeal to rural and farm boys much more than some of the other readers available. A nice addition, at our house, as well, has been Rod and Staff Spelling. It fits in well with the reading and phonics. Best of all, the boys like to learn these three subjects now.

I used the Bible Nurture and Reader as a child and loved it. That was 32 years ago that I personally used it. I used it for my 15-year-old nine years ago or so. He loved it.

We both still struggled with reading. I have used Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading with three of my kids with great success. I plan to supplement with the Bible Nurture and Reader series, because I love its pure and simple faith approach. I do not believe it does the job by itself.

We use Rod & Staff for most of our children. Due to your recommendation we tried Pathway for our daughter with dyslexia. I love both programs! Our children are terrific readers and have learned so much about the Lord, the Word, and living a life that brings glory to Him, just from the reading curriculum. I always recommend friends try Rod & Staff or Pathway, first! The cost is fabulous as well! The content and effectiveness won me over before I knew the cost. The price sealed the deal! We have 6 children, 5 of which have used or are using Rod & Staff or Pathway Readers. One is currently in a kindergarten program. She will be in Rod & Staff next year! :)
