Scripture Scribes: Following Jesus with Scripture, Song and Art
Following Jesus, with Scripture, Song, and Art, primary level, suggested for grades 2-5. Students read (if able), trace, and write Scripture and hymns, and color the original artwork provided in this workbook. Cursive. Coil bound to lie flat.
This series will help to develop children’s handwriting skills and plant God’s words in their hearts. Using Biblical concepts and Scripture, this program starts with learning letters, and then progresses to manuscript and traditional cursive handwriting (uses a capital Q that looks like a 2 and joins letters at the bottom line). The series also mingles copywork, handwriting practice, and Scripture memory with Biblical history content. Each level of this program features beautiful covers, typical book print style for introducing Scripture, and the trace-and-then-practice format on writing lines (includes median dotted line). Parent educators will also find enough variation to meet individual desires: in layout, binding, Bible versions used, history discussed, and tasks. See each book description for distinctives. Each volume clearly identifies Bible versions. Your student will find enough consistency and direction to make this a fairly independent program (for all but beginning writing levels). Most volumes provide 30 lessons, designed for 4 days per week. Unless noted, most books are portrait format and perfect bound (needing some assistance to lay flat).
Start young ones with Scribbler to Scribe. Letters are introduced in order of difficulty, attached with a drawing: J for jet; X for Xylophone, etc. These early levels start with tracing lines and capital letters on 13/16” lines, then upper and lower case in alphabetical order—each with a couple activities, ending with tracing words and Bible verses on 13/16” lines. The material includes things to draw and do that start with each letter. All are nonreproducible, and vary by length. pb. ~ Ruth
