Classical Academic Press-Review


My son and I both enjoyed this review for Classical Academic Press. Not only did we learn about God, but we bonded while learning. We started our day with the chapter story time in his Student Book. Then with the recommendation from the Teacher's Edition, we would reflect by looking up the verse in our Bibles and copying them into our Bible Journal. At the end of each chapter I would have him review the Story Time with the Audio before we would move onto the next chapter.

We received a Teacher's Edition, Audio Book Download, and the Student Book consisted of:
  • Third Grade Level
  • 32 Chapters
  • Memory Verse
  • Key Facts
  • Vocabulary
  • Review Worksheets
  • Chapter Quiz
The cost for Classical Academic God’s Great Convention Old Testament Book 1 is very reasonable. The Student book is $22.95, Teacher's Edition is $24.95, and the Audio Book Download is $9.95. Now, this is my kind of pricing and I like that there's more than one level for my son to continue his learning when he completes Classical Academic God’s Great Convention Old Testament Book 1.


He enjoyed this Student Book because it was easy navigation for him with minimal help. I think that helped him improve his independence. We would read together, go through the lesson for the chapter, break up, and he was able to complete the workbook by himself. The only suggestion I would make for the workbook is to have the Review Worksheets and the Chapter Quiz pages easier to tear out. 

Classical Academic God’s Great Convention Old Testament Book 1 wasn’t easy or hard for my son. I thought at first by the layout of the chapters it looked easy. However, it was just right because not only does it appear to be fill in the blanks, it challenged my son to pay attention to the story. He realized that after the second chapter that everything he needed could be found from the story. Yes, I know it was a little late, but hey, at least he connected the concept. He’s likes to know what’s coming next, kind of like a need to know his day in advance. The Student Book is laid out like that, Story Time, Worksheets, and Quiz .

Once he figured that out, I think he did very well thereafter. I know for me, I love it because I use to struggle to get him to want to read. He wasn’t a fan of reading until ClassicalAcademic Press came into our home. 


We all know the perks of having a Teacher's Edition when teaching. My favorite section in this book was the scripture related to each chapter. I made it easy to reference to and also great for daily copywork for my son. I had a hard time with the page falling out, but that's because when I was folding the previous pages over. So, I would recommend not doing that.
