Overview

Focus: The Names of Jesus Teach Us His Character
  • Complete Curriculum
  • Bible Notebook

  • Foundational Math Principles
 
Teacher's Manual Learning God's Story is our complete first grade curriculum with a phonics-based reading program that focuses on the Bible. The integrated lessons also include language arts, social studies, science, math, and art. Easy-to-teach lesson plans guide you through an entire school year.

Using a thematic approach, this learning adventure focuses on Bible history from Genesis to Revelation. Phonics lessons develop the needed skills to read Bible stories from our Bible Reader. Students retell (narrate) the Bible story and create a lovely keepsake Bible Notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help strengthen handwriting skills as well as Biblical character.

Hands-On Projects
These projects help the students understand and experience the world of the Bible. Creating a timeline helps to visualize Bible stories as actual events that fit into history. Making a Bible-times costume and celebrating a Sabbath meal help students understand the culture of the Bible.

Reading
Step-by-step instruction in phonics makes teaching reading easy. Learning God's Story begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds, followed by in-depth teaching of all necessary phonics to produce an independent reader. The Teacher's Manual provides easy-to-follow daily lesson plans that teach new skills and allows continuous review. Student worksheets reinforce phonics, spelling, and handwriting skills. Bible Reader Excerpt By week 13 students are reading Bible stories in a special beginning level Bible Reader, which is included with the curriculum.

Science
Learn about nature, using three age-appropriate, engaging science books included with the curriculum.

Math
The Teacher's Manual includes goals and activities for a hands-on approach to best develop foundational math principles with manipulatives and a supplementary math workbook to reinforce skills.

The first grade program is an ideal follow-up to My Father's World kindergarten program, God's Creation from A to Z, but may be used by any student who is ready for first grade reading. If your child is not yet reading simple short vowel words, he may be more successful if he begins with our kindergarten program. Please contact us if you have any questions about placement.

Testimonials

Just wanted to let you all know that we are enjoying our trek through My Father's World's 1st grade program (6-year-old daughter) and Exploring Countries and Cultures (8-year-old daughter). We also have a 3-year-old daughter who loves to "learn" with us. The MFW curriculum is THE BEST that I've come across in my experience both as a homeschool mom and as a formal classroom teacher in the public and private school systems. My family loves it, and as a result, we are growing closer to one another and to the Lord.
We also have awesome adventures through the woods, wild flower fields and beaches in our outdoor exploration days.

Cheryl

We are really really enjoying My Father's World first grade program. Bethany has a ball and learns tons. David and Marie, the Lord is blessing our family with your hard work and effort to create such a Biblically-based and high quality product. Only in eternity will you really know the far reach of this ministry. Giving families a tool to aid in raising the next generation to be godly and have a firm foundation in the Word is a precious ministry. Thank you!

Rebecca

Thank you so much for making homeschooling so do-able and fun. I have completed the kindergarten program and am about half way through the first grade material that you have written. My Father's World material is so God centered and yet so complete as far as academics is concerned.
Thank you again and may God richly reward you.

Amber

I would highly recommend the book Drawing With Children. I used it with my daughter when she was in My Father's World first grade program and she really enjoyed it and it helped build her confidence immensely. I also learned a lot, too.

Now I am using the program with 4th - 6th graders to teach an art unit at our homeschool group, and they love it too.

Erin

Thanks so much for the silly story that goes with drawing the map of the Middle East.(This is part of My Father's World first grade program.) I will never forget and neither will my son. It is so wonderful the way your curriculum is put together. We love it!!!!! I know now where the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers are at! Yea!!! I am learning right along with my son and it has been very inspiring!

Maria from West Texas! Yahooooooo!

This is our 8th year to home school. Our oldest is in college and our younger ones recently began My Father's World first grade program and Exploring Countries and Cultures. We have always put together our own curriculum, so this has been a big adjustment for me, but I love what MFW has done. The biggest benefit to me is that we can sit down and begin because everything is done for us. I always did lesson plans before, but they never seemed to work as easily as these do. We get so much more done in a day, and the boys are enjoying it. It is so well thought through that I don't have to stop and decide how I'm going to approach the next topic.
