Foundational Bible Curriculum
YEAR A: Lower Grades (Ages 6-8 years) A sample of a three year cycle of materials that form a repeating spiral of God-centered themes, at three different class levels.
This curriculum is intended to form a foundation for students to encounter God in all academic areas and experience His presence in all aspects of life.
God has spoken clearly about His desire for us as teachers and parents to bring children into His presence, not just teach about him; the title “ Into God’s Presence” is intended to form a constant reminder of this.
This Foundational Bible curriculum focusses on nouns, adjectives and verbs that the Bible uses to describe God – his “Roles and Titles (Names)”, his “Nature and Character”, “His Works and Ways”. There are 21 two-week themes for each of the three years in the cycle.
The full three year cycle is for Lower Grades (Ages 6-8), Middle Grades (Ages 9-11), and Upper Grades (Ages 12-14). Upper Grades lessons can be adapted for older students. Thematic units are intended to be a foundation for other areas of schooling, flowing through Science, Art, Writing etc. A longer term goal is to add integration ideas for each theme.
For each two week theme there are the following:
• Teacher/Parent Meditation
• Lesson ideas and activities
• Wall size memory verses
• Student size memory verses
The curriculum is a work in progress, still undergoing development. If you are interested in other years and class levels, or would like to be a part of writing these materials, please make contact through this website.
