As a Christian, I believe that everyday should start with prayer and acknowledging my dependence on my Savior. I do try to begin our homeschool day in the same manner. We study God’s Word, pray, and even sing some fun children’s songs. Yet, sometimes the busy- ness of our day will rob this time. A dentist appointment, and unexpected visitor…To be honest, I noticed that our days tend to go much more smoothly when we spend a few moments having “Bible” time. We make it fun, not too deep… (only what a 5 year old can handle) and focus on living our lives in a way that is pleasing unto the Lord.
There are some really awesome curriculum kits out there that can make your Bible time – easy and fun. One of my favorites is Positive Action for Christ… I have used several different levels of their curriculum… I just adjust it for whatever grade I am teaching.
The Explorer’s Bible Study is also a great Bible curriculum for children’s individual study. Great if you don’t like “teaching.”
The What We Believe Series by Apologia Press also looks like a great curriculum. Haven’t tried this one… but I love Apologia’s other stuff!
Also BJU and ABEKA have great Bible curriculum… you can even get ABEKA’s on DVD… though the teachers may look a bit dated… they really are good teachers. My children learned a lot when we used the DVD series!
