Veritas Bible Judges through Kings Teacher Manual
The Judges to Kings Homeschool Teacher's Manual is part of the Judges to Kings Bible series from Veritas Press, which includes this teacher's manual (or the enhanced homeschool teacher's manual on CD), plus the Judges to Kings Flashcards and Judges to Kings Memory CD, all of which are sold separately. This course was designed to help students understand the Scriptures and cannot be used apart from a Bible. It's recommended that each account is read in the Bible during the week.
This teacher's manual includes student projects and worksheets that align with the cards and memory CD (not included). Fun projects include ideas like creating a coat of arms for the family of David, design a city, illustrate Proverbs, and more. Worksheets provide reinforcement for Bible passages and help students to analyze and remember what they're studying in the Bible. Tests feature short-answer questions and provide an opportunity for assessment. Answers to all assignments are included in the back (line-listed format).
Thirty-two people and events are featured for approximately one per school week; a few cards have extra projects that may take longer than a week.
Reproducible for homeschool use. Recommended for 3rd Grade, usable 2nd-6th.
If you are looking for a chronological Bible program taught in a comprehensive yet straightforward method, Veritas is an excellent choice. The purpose of this curriculum is to teach children to understand Scripture in a chronological order through a multisensory approach (using picture cards, memory songs, worksheets, and other activities). If you are studying Veritas history, this series would correlate well with it. There are five courses to this program with each teaching a section of the Bible. Each course includes 32 weeks of lessons and is meant to be covered in one year of study. There are four resources included with each course: Bible Cards, Teacher Guide, Audio CD, and an Enhanced CD.
The 32 Bible Cards (5x7 inches) are such a wonderful resource with or without the rest of the curriculum! Most have a colorful picture (except for a few black and white) with a Scripture reference on one side and an explanation with additional reading resources on the other side. For example, on one side of the card, there is a picture with the caption “Famine in Egypt, Genesis 41-47”. The other side gives a brief account of the Scripture and lists other resources with page numbers for additional reading. The cards are also color coded to depict the correct time period, and to let students know this event is also found in Scripture. There are also chronological numbers on some cards to clarify if it relates to a history or Bible event so students can combine the cards. (This is especially helpful if using the history curriculum). You can laminate the cards, punch a hole in the top right corner and keep them on a large ring. The cards can also be used to play games like Go Fish or race to put the cards in chronological order.
The Audio CD is full of memory songs for children to memorize the chronology of Biblical events. They should sing along daily to these songs (especially for the first few weeks until they are memorized).
The Teacher’s Manual includes the worksheets, Bible reading, projects, and tests. Answers to the worksheets, projects, and tests are also in the teacher manual. There are 32 lessons, and a sample schedule for a week is included. It is not necessary to do all the projects; pick and choose what works best for your family. The projects are not intimidating or complicated, but rather fun.
An Enhanced CD-ROM is also available for this course. This includes the memory songs, an electronic version of the teacher’s manual, and a “how to” video providing guidance on how to use the program. This will work on most Windows and Macintosh computers.
We offer two complete kits: one with the Teacher Manual, the card set, and the audio CD (Homeschool Kit); and one with the Enhanced CD and the Cards (Homeschool Kit with CD).
