Homeschool Bible Curriculum

 

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!

    We are just starting traditional homeschooling this year (last year we did online school.) We are trying to find a Bible curriculum. Please email me with any updated information, this is really a helpful blog. I have a 2,5,7 yearold (first and second grade level) that Im looking for. I like the way positive action looks alot for them but with the teachers manual looks like it may just be out of my price range.

    For me, it is the constant prrsusee of mommy guilt . For whatever reason, I find myself frequently wondering whether or not I am truly doing all that I can . Then, this leads to greater stress on my mind, heart and soul. It can be a vicious cycle. I have found that having a core group of online friends has truly helped. A person CANNOT homeschool without having a very supportive group behind them. This is especially true when they are homeschooling children with challenges.One thing I CAN say is that a homeschooling parent has to do exactly what you mentioned in the first paragraph. The only right way is the way that works for your individual children and family. We get in trouble when we try copying other people or compromising what we know to be best. I spent the first 3 years of my homeschooling attempting to educate my energetic/sensory sensitive kids just like all my friends educated their children. We tried following a strict routine, sitting at a table. We tried sitting at desks. We tried ALL sorts of things that other moms I respected did successfully with their kids. The only problem was, my kids ALL struggle GREATLY with any work that includes hand-writing excessively and workbooks and textbooks. We have since found an online program that has nearly eliminated the tears. I still sometimes watch wistfully as other parents are able to sit with their large families, around the same table, and all learn out of a book. I learned that is MY learning style and I had to find what works for my 3 kids. It is VERY difficult sometimes to break free from others’ expectations of me, but I have been learning that is the ONLY way we will survive as a family. We now have our OWN routine which means when the kids are emotionally in an unstable place, we wait an hour. Maybe we’ll go outside and play. Maybe the kids will all go back to their rooms and we’ll start the day over. Sometimes, we all just scream (not AT each other just scream to get the agitation out). It probably sounds TERRIBLE, but it helps all of us feel better. Then, we go on with the day.
