    Give your child a lift-the-flap book to help him connect the written word with objects in his life. This is an ideal way to give your beginners practice in word recognition. Vocabulary is categorized by theme: On the Farm; I Can . . ., (actions); My Body and Clothes; Outdoor Words; On the Beach; What do They Say (animal sounds); and The Bedroom. Often, the focus of similar books is to introduce nouns; this one includes some verbs as well. Children learn the written word by either lifting the picture flap or lifting the written word flap. Below each flap, the opposite form is represented. This way, children can check their answers and learn to identify words. Pages are full color, quite pleasing, and not distracting. The last two pages list, in picture and written form, all 72 words used.

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob
