Here are the resources I have used with the girls in my (imperfect but hopeful) attempt to teach them consistently & constantly throughout our days. This is by no means an exhaustive list but I've found that the Lord has used each of these books, CDs, & videos to spark some excellent & profound conversations with my daughters!
|Character Builders (TM) 8-DVD Set|
Also: Ian and the Giant Leafy Obstacle, Noah's Ark, Poems and Prayers for the Very Young, The Gods Must Be Angry, New Toes for Tia, & Children's Book of Virtues
I Heard Good News Today, and...
|Egermeier's Bible Story Book|
|Firm Foundations: From Creation to Christ|
For 1st Grade
|Leading Little Ones to God|
|The Visual Bible: Matthew|
(The only parts the girls haven't seen in full yet are
Herod's slaughter of the children and the crucifixion;
it is my conviction that those scenes
are too violent for them at this time.)
|The Sing the Word Series|
Sing the Word From A to Z, A New Commandment, God Our Provider, Great in Counsel and Mighty in Deed, The Heavens Declare, All Nations Shall Worship, & Credo (I believe...). All songs are verses set to music! For the family who is more conservative in its musical selection, this family uses no electric instruments or drums. They adhere mainly to the instruments mentioned in Scripture.
|Glory Revealed, Volumes I & II|
The Glory Revealed Project is a collaboration of some of Christian music's most well-known artists - taking favorite passages of Scripture and putting them to song.
There are a variety of musical styles represented here!
I know I've left out a few, but I'm praying this will be a blessing to a parent who is wondering where to begin! You've probably noticed that most of the links are to Sonlight - it's because we are headed into our 5th year of homeschooling with Sonlight, and I'm (clearly) partial. If you end up ordering any of the books, see my Educating at Home page for a discount code off of your first Sonlight order!
Teaching them diligently,
for His glory!
