The Crew also reviewed two books in the Bible study series written by Claire Larsen from CAP.  They are:

Photobucket God’s Great Covenant Book 1, ($22.95) which begins with Genesis and covers through the book of Ruth.  It is divided into five units (themes) to help children grades 3-6 grasp the bigger concepts being taught in these first books of the Bible.  The five themes are God’s Promises, God’s Power, God’s Redemption, God’s Provision, and God’s Faithfulness.  It is told in a narrative style so that children are engaged by the stories, yet clearly see God’s unfolding plan that ultimately leads to Jesus.

Using charts, memory verses, and quizzes, students can complete a chapter per week for 32 weeks The Teacher’s Edition ($24.95) includes more details to expand on the historical, geographical, and societal context of the Old Testament.  The mp3 audio files are available for $9.95.

A sample weekly schedule and sample chapter are available on the website.

God’s Great Covenant Book 2 ($22.95) picks up where Book 1 ended and continues in the same format and style.  It covers 1 Samuel through Malachi.  The five themes in Book 2 are:  The God Who Anoints, The God Who Blesses, The God Who Reigns, The God Who Judges, and The God Who Restores.  The Teacher’s Edition is $24.95 and the mp3 files are $9.95.

You can find a sample chapter, a sample from the Teacher’s Edition, the weekly schedule, and sample mp3 on the website.

  1. […] As for my oldest, who has had Spanish before I have her help my son do his writing on his worksheets, she sings the songs and participates in the puppet shows as well as helping me teach Spanish.  So while it’s not geared for 5th graders going into 6th, it is possible to have them help with the lessons and participate even though mine finds the worksheets too young.  Overall, all my children really enjoy using Song School Spanish and using Classical Academic Press’ curriculum makes them want to continue learning this language – which is useful as more Spanish speaking peoples arrive in the United States.  You may want to see what others said by visiting the Schoolhouse Review Crew blog.
