Draw with me through the Bible as we learn about it, won’t you?
Doesn’t that sound like a great way to learn the stories of the bible AND to retain it?
Introducing to you today, GrapeVine Studies.
GrapeVine Studies is a leading bible curriculum company, they create curriculum to help children draw what they are learning about the stories of the Bible. Each age level has more expected of them, from the littlest ones listening and then drawing, to the older ones using bible dictionaries, learning bible geography and reviewing what they learn.
Stick figuring your way through the bible. GrapeVine Studies gives children an overview of the bible section that you will studying with your children. Then it breaks down each section into drawable stories.. giving suggestions on how to draw the story in the easiest way.
The teacher manual corresponds exactly with the students workbooks making it very easy to use.
Each level increases the resources children are taught to use from bible dictionaries, maps, scripture memorization, and various bible study tools. It’s a nice graduation from tracing, to drawing your own, to drawing more and using additional resources to deepen understanding.
The crew had the delight in reviewing the following materials.
Birth of Jesus: Beginner This level is great for 5-7 year olds
This level is great for those children 7 and up. The traceable version is wonderful for 3-5 year olds who might need a tad more help.
