There are a lot of awesome ways to incorporate the Bible into everyday activities. I share a lot of ways you can teach Scripture to your kids here at the blog! Sometimes, though, it can become challenging to think up new ideas to do so if you are not the creative type (raising my hand).
My 6 year old daughter Leah absolutely loves to practice her handwriting. I think she might be an aspiring writer! For now, we are just working on forming the letters correctly :) She also loves Scripture memorization–often singing it to a tune she makes up!
At almost 4 years old, Jude is familiar with his letters thanks to being read to often and using a fabulous preschool Bible-based curriculum we’ve been incorporating at home this year called God’s Little Explorers. However, I wanted to add in a handwriting component to go along with our lessons since he seemed very interested in copying what his older sister is doing!
I came across a curriculum that incorporates learning Scripture and handwriting at the same time–bonus! It has been a really fun addition to our time at home and my kids have been excited about it each day I pull it out!
What We’re Using to Encourage Proper Handwriting Skills: Write Through the Bible, Junior
Write Through the Bible, Junior is a new interdisciplinary study you can use to teach your young child to write while focusing on God’s word. This curriculum, geared towards 4-6 year olds, is a full-year curriculum.
A Curriculum for Busy Moms
With Write Through the Bible, Junior, you can complete several subjects at once. This curriculum will allow you to teach your child to write, discuss new vocabulary words, dig deep into the Word of God, and memorize a long passage of scripture together.
Not only that, but there is virtually no preparation! There aren’t any super involved crafts–and I love simplicity. Everything you need for this curriculum you probably already have at home. Jude loves the little activity sheets too! I got the book spiral bound for $3 at Office Max so it was easier for him to work with.
If you are not a homeschooler, you can definitely use this as a supplement to what your children are already learning in school as far as handwriting, and adding the Biblical element is a great way to take this skill further.
Here are a few things your child will learn as they work through this book:
- How to improve fine motor coordination
- Learning letter sounds
- Learning how to form letters
- Memorizing Philippians 2:1-18
- Learning new vocabulary words
- Studying Philippians 2:1-18 and learn what it means to have a heart of humility.
Write Through the Bible, Junior is available in a number of options you can choose from.
- Ball-and-Stick Manuscript
- D’Nealian Manuscript (this is the format we are using)
