God's Great Covenant Old Testament 2



Hey Neighbors!

Here is our second homeschool curriculum review this year.  This one is from Classical Academic Press.  We received both the Teacher's Edition ($24.95), the Student's Book ($22.95) and Downloadable Audio Files ($9.95).   This is the second book in God's Great Covenant.  It is Old Testament 2 and covers 1 Samuel to Malachi.  (Recommended for grades 3-6)  My daughter is thoroughly enjoying this!

We are doing a Chapter approximately every week, mainly because I want her to really know the Memory Verses, not just do a quick memorization to quote it to me and then forget the verse.  I will state here, that they use a different version then we do, so I just have her memorize out of her Bible.  We prefer KJV, but she is old enough to recognize the difference and look the verse up on her own.

Each chapter comes with a portion of Scripture that you should read to your child, or require them to read.  Next there is a theme, that gives the general idea of what the section of Scripture is about.  The Memory Verse is listed next.  as I stated above she looks hers up and works from there.  They list some Key Facts and Things to Remember.  Next is a Message From the King, which tells you what you will learn from this chapter.

Here is an example:


The next couple of pages in each chapter are the Biblical account being retold.  This is not Scripture, but a re-telling of the account. This is where the Downloadable MP3 Files come in. You can allow your child to listen to the account.  Then comes the activities.  Your child will have a chance to show what they have learned by filling in blanks in the Memory Verse.  This I just have my daughter quote to me.  They use fill in the blank, True or False, Circle the Correct Answer, etc.  In the back of the student book is the quiz for each chapter which includes a crossword puzzle.

The back of the student book also includes an Appendix listing all the Memory verses.  Appendix B explains the Pictures of Christ in the Old Testament passages they are reading.  Appendix C tells how to use the Psalms. (Very good for helping your child get more out of the Psalms!)  Appendix D is How to Understand the Proverbs.  I personally like Appendix E which lists the Kings and Prophets and shows the approx. dates they were alive.  Appendix F, also very interesting is the Reigns of the Kings of Israel and Judah.There are a few other informative sections in the back of the book, including a glossary and maps.



The Teacher's Edition walks you through the course.  All the answers are right at your fingertips, along with additional information to share with your child/children.

This is such a great addition to our homeschool program.  My daughter can do her Bible class first thing in the morning and then begin her other classes.  I do recommend this curriculum to my neighbors who are looking for a Bible course.
