Word in Motion
This two-volume Bible curriculum is a complete study of the Old and New Testament. Each volume has thirty lessons that are designed to be completed in one school year. Lessons 1-15 (Part I) of the Old Testament study cover creation through the return of Jews from Babylon and rebuilding the temple. Lessons 16-30 (Part II) familiarize students with the 39 books of the Old Testament. Lessons 1-15 (Part I) of the New Testament studies the rise of the Roman empire through the founding of the early church, and the spread of the gospel to Europe and Asia. Lessons 16-30 (Part II) covers the 27 books of the New Testament. Each lesson should be done over the course of a week, taking about 4 days with 30-45 minutes for each lesson. Each study involves a streaming video, the lesson from the textbook, and an activity in the notebooking journal. Both the textbook and notebooking journal are required for the course.
The first part of the lesson involves the streaming video (accessed through the internet with a password code in the front of the textbook) lasting about 4-5 minutes. It gives a brief overview then demonstrates motions to go with the lesson. More motions are added with each new lesson. By the end of each volume, students will have a 40-point outline of both the Old and New Testament with motions and keywords.
You will find the meat of the program in the hardcover textbook. Each lesson will provide the Bible passage, a Scripture memory verse, and a story describing the key people, places, and events in chronological order (intended to be read aloud by the parent). Following are discussion questions, character profiles (first-person story of one of the Bible characters), apologetics, and other insightful articles.
The notebooking journal will become a fun keepsake for students as they document and personalize what they learn. Each student will need their own journal.
Taking a multisensory approach, this program uses all senses to bring God’s Word to young students. Easy to use yet thorough and engaging, children will be excited to study Bible passages and how they fit together, God’s amazing love for us, and His wonderful plan for our redemption. ~ Gina
