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.
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.
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. By week 13 students are reading Bible stories in a special beginning level Bible Reader, which is included with the curriculum.
Learn about nature, using three age-appropriate, engaging science books included with the curriculum.
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.
