Product Description:

Introduce kids to the wonder of things God has created with this colorful storybook. Initially, each 2-page spread in the book is composed of a large illustration showing one of the seven days of Creation. Illustrations are detailed and colorful and show the vast array of things that God has created. Along with each illustration are the verses from Genesis that talk about that part of Creation (in the King James Version) along with a small description about it and a prompt to get kids to notice specific elements of Creation both in the pictures and in life. Then several pages in the book are dedicated to pointing out some especially unique and well-designed animals that God created. Each animal is shown in a colorful illustration and then a caption shares a bit about what is so amazing about the animal. The last part of the book focuses on why humans are so special and how God can know and love us so well because He created us. Excerpts from Psalm 139 are accompanied by cute pictures of children and explanations of how God knows all about us. A colorful and meaningful storybook by Helen and David Haidle, 40 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel

Category Description for Biblical Beginnings for Preschoolers:

This curriculum from Master Books is designed to introduce Biblical themes while integrating some preschool basic skills. Using a combination of several books and a teacher guide, this program is a full Bible program designed for lessons of 45 minutes to an hour, four times a week for 36 weeks, for 3-5 year olds. The curriculum can be used at home, in Sunday school, co-op or a small school setting. The Parent Lesson Planner (PLP) serves as the teacher guide and record book and provides what you as teacher need to plan, teach and record Bible lessons. Youll find lesson plans and weekly schedules, instructions, materials lists and coloring pages. Each weekly schedule of four lessons includes reading, coloring pages, activities and vocabulary building. Scheduling provides direction and yet enough flexibility to meet your specific needs. A suggested semester schedule briefly overviews material and then a daily schedule outlines each days objectives. Since Biblical Beginnings has multiple teaching venues in mind, lessons include "Circle Time" and different Center Times. These, however, can be easily adapted for the home school room. A minor point, but some of the coloring page illustrations werent my cup of tea (a little too cartoony for my tastes). Consumable and reproducible (for up to 10 students in one classroom)perforated pages. 14;" x 11", 164 pp, sc.

This Bible curriculum requires the below-listed products (purchase separately) which include varied genre, activities and Bible lessons. Ive included a brief description of each here; more thorough descriptions are available under eachproduct listing. God Made the World & Me contains 13 lessons with activity center ideas.

This book is used in conjunction with The Creation Story for Children, which pictures each day of creation.A is for Adam, D is for Dinosaur and N is for Noah, which are chart type books that tell creation and Genesis stories using colorful illustrations and rhyme. Coloring books by the same


Category Description for Memoria Press Classical Curriculum:

Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study.

The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use.

Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now titled Acclerated Classical Core Curriculum Manual. You can find these along with the complete list of curriculum resources used with them on our website.

We have complete grade-level resource packages, consumable packages for “refill,” new user packages for levels that reuse resources from a previous level, read-aloud packages for each level and science and enrichment packages for the early levels. Curriculum resources are also listed individually (see website for specific contents of consumables and read-aloud packages). Please note that several of the programs include First Form Latin and Classical Composition, which should be completed in order, regardless of what is in the grade level package.If you have a student entering the program after fourth grade, you will need to start them in Classical Composition: Fable Stage and/or First Form Latin instead of what might be in the package.

This series is for the parent who wants a good classical curriculum which is outlined and ready to use. Simply open the book and follow the instructions. You will be well on your way to a quality education for your young ones. ~ Donna


There will be families who are very thankful for the appearance of this curriculum; for years it's seemed as though classical education and special needs might be incompatible. Then comes Cheryl Swope who just...does it. Not only did she start walking down the classical path with her special needs twins, but she quickly realized that it was the very best possible educational path for them. The combination of systematic repetition, language skills emphasis, gracious implementation and quality content has reaped amazing results, transforming their challenging lives into those with meaningful expressions of beauty and service.

Simply Classical Curriculum, written by Mrs. Swope, is essentially a set of lesson plans coupled with a choice reading list that moves gradually into some of the Memoria Press curriculum products (i.e. First Start Reading and Classical Phonics) as well as other early level curriculum products (i.e. Rod & Staff preschool workbooks). A quick look at these lesson plans might cause you to conclude that it is simply a typical classical program slooooowed way down. You're not exactly wrong, but you're not exactly right either. It's rather that the possibility of slowing way down is built into the lessons. The daily collection of lessons - rich in quality literature - progress slowly and surely through the process of laying a very solid foundation in classical learning. The plans/program offers 10 key features:

  • - The rich, beautiful content of a classical Christian education
  • - A slower pace with ample review
  • - An emphasis on books with elegant illustrations to cultivate a taste for excellence
  • - A multi-sensory presentation of material
  • - Oral language components
  • - Skills checklists
  • - Integration across subjects
  • - Themed levels
  • - A trivium approach
  • - Socratic questioning

Introductory information for each level includes a program overview, readiness assessment, FAQs concerning where to begin, list of read-aloud books, supply list, brief teacher notes, and a week-by-week chart for recitation and memory work. The detailed readiness assessment for each level covers language, cognitive ability, emotional development, fine-motor skills, and gross motor skills and is followed by a set of skills in each area to develop during this level of the program.

Other than making sure you have read-alouds and supplies for the day, prep is practically nil. The four-days-a-week, weekly lesson plans provide a daily checklist with specific tasks in each of several areas such as calendar, alphabet/numbers, and motor skills. In levels B and C, Simply Classical Crafts is incorporated into the arts/crafts tasks. Opening and closing the learning period with prayer is not only encouraged but prompted with suggestions for prayers to learn. There are 34 weeks of plans plus eight weeks of review. 110 - 180 pgs, pb.

The Core Curriculum Packages include the Curriculum Manual (Lesson Plans) plus books/workbooks used throughout the year. The Read Aloud Packages include all the books used as read alouds for the year. The Supply Packages are a collection of school supplies that are needed to complete the program. ~ Janice

Tonight I sat down with three of my kids (the fourth one was on a one-on-one special time with daddy) and we read through this marvelous book that goes through the story of creation (Genesis 1-2) AND Psalm 139The colorful pages were an absolute hit for my kids especially those showing all the plants fishes birds and animals They each took their time to show me their favourite fish bird and animal I even discovered that my four year old loves bald eagles - a fact that was unknown until now This fact is written on my heart and I will not forget about it The second time we saw the bald eagle further in the book he joyfully exclaimed �They even put my favourite one there!� *grin* Gotta love that child of mine As much as I love ladybugs I think he loves bald eagles I think that a bald eagle from Schleich or Safari will find its way in his stocking at Christmas time� *double grin*Needless to say we spent a lovely time reading through the story of creation and also through the facts in Psalm 139 The kids participated when I asked specific questions regarding creation and enjoyed the beautiful images as much as I didThe good news is that this book can also be used in conjunction with either God Made the WORLD & ME or Creation which are two curriculum books that will bring your preschoolers or your grades 1-4 kids to a better understand of creation through science art math and more This book can also be a wonderful gift for new parents as well as for a dedication or baptism It is indeed a book that I would recommend any family church or school to have one their shelves
