3.1 Christian Resources: Scripture Word Study with Kids

There are many ways to study Scripture with your children, one of which is a Scripture Word Study. This method will help you get to the heart of the meaning of specific words inside the verses, in the hope that God’s Word will become especially meaningful for you and your children. Subscribe to the newsletter offered by “Ben and Me” and get a tool designed to help break down difficult-to-understand verses into more manageable pieces. Of course, you can unsubscribe at any time if the site does not meet your needs.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: Article – “A Homeschool Curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten”

We have forgotten the value of creative play–this summer is a great time to relearn and apply it!
