I know that not every homeschool family uses a Bible curriculum, but we do. So, I am going to start there. Bible is the first subject that we do in our home school. We have used a few different types of Bible curriculum over the past several years, but most recently we have begun using the Positive Action for Christ Bible Curriculum. We enjoy this curriculum – it seems like it is really “down to earth” in equipping the children to face real life challenges. This year we used the Wise Up! study in Proverbs. It has been great – even though it is written at a middle school level, we used it for all 6 of our children to teach one Bible class at once. Even our five year old was remembering the lessons. It has accompanying student workbooks available, and even overhead transparencies if you were using it in a classroom setting.
We previously used ABEKA Bible at different grade levels. This is a great curriculum and since we are Baptist it was very compatible with what we believe the Bible teaches. However, as more of my children began schooling, it became a great burden to try to teach each one a different Bible lesson. Also, the Bible lessons from Abeka frequently repeated year after year. We wanted something different and helpful with “real life” applications.
We have also used the Bob Jones University Press Bible curriculum. This had a nice student workbook that was colorful and easy to use. However, it got pretty bulky and demanding to do separate Bible class for each level I was teaching.
We have thought about trying this Homeschooling Bible curriculum, but haven’t had the opportunity yet.
So, what is your Bible Curriculum… please comment and let us know!
