Bible Treasures: New Testament is the third and final installment of our early elementary Bible story series based on Catherine Vos's original Bible story book. It is well-illustrated, containing stories, questions, and memorization activities, including the well-known First Catechism. Its goal is to help students understand God's wonderful plan of redemption.
Like the others in this series, the book is divided into 36 weekly units, with five lessons per unit. At the end of each week, students will be able to actively participate in fun crafts and activities that will help them review and remember their lessons, with a cumulative review unit at the end of the text. An answer key is found after the cumulative review.
This series is wonderful for your young ones, especially if you just want simple, straightforward Bible stories presented in chronological order. Each consumable (non-reproducible) book has 36 units (one per week), each unit is divided into 5 lessons, and each lesson is one to two pages in length. The first four lessons in each unit include a Bible story that has been adapted from The Child's Story Bible by Catherine Vos. At the end of each story, there are two questions about the story, one thought question, one question from the First Catechism, and a memory verse (this is the same for the whole week. The questions about the story can be answered with a word or two; the thought question is for discussion with your child. The fifth lesson in each unit is a 'review' lesson and includes a review of the memory verse and Catechism questions from that week along with a reinforcing activity - draw a picture of ways you can obey, retell the Bible story in their own words, build a miniature tabernacle of craft sticks, etc.
An answer key is included at the back of the book for your convenience, and a colorful illustration is found at the beginning of each unit. Scriptures are the New King James Version. ~ Donna
