Psalms & Proverbs for Young Catholics is written with a mixture of Psalms and Proverbs taken from the Douay-Rheims version. You will delight in having your child read, trace, and copy the Scriptures. There are enough lessons for an entire school year. This title in the Scripture Scribes series is written for the primary grades, suggested for grades 2 and 3 but could easily be used for a 4th and 5th grades (or a well writting 1st grader). Cursive, medium size font.
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
