Back to Teaching Children the Bible.
 
Today is the first day of school, and with it, I am starting our daily study together.

I found a Children's Bible Study on John. Its really just a reading break down that takes like 40 days or so to complete. Its made for 3rd grade to I don't remember what grade, but I think Will would be able to read it out loud with some help.

So My plan is for him to have a little free play either outside or in his room after school. Followed by Bible Study at 4. We'll pray together, and he will do the reading for John for the day. We will talk about words/concepts he may not know. And when he is done I will ask a few comprehension questions. Then I will pick a verse for him to write out. I will also pick 1 memory verse a week. (From something already read and probably a verse he started to write out) Then he will listen to the Keys devotion on the computer. I am hoping this takes no more than 30 minutes.

What do you think?

What are your routines like?

Hi! I'm new here, but I hope I can jump in!

I just read the Bible over breakfast. We started in Genesis reading one chapter of Old Testament and one section of New Testament a day (or most days, anyway). I did the Gospels first: Luke, John, Matthew, Mark. Now we're on Acts and I'll go straight through from there. We're in Judges at the moment in the Old Testament. On good days I throw in a chapter of Proverbs and I just started in Psalms. Those two probably get two or three days a week though, if we're very lucky.

The idea with all of that is to introduce them to the whole Bible. Then hopefully as they hear about things at church, or I refer to things at home, there will be something in their mind already to build on. We used to do Scripture memory and character qualities after breakfast, but haven't for several months. We homeschool, though, for what it's worth. If misbehavior slows down our reading, it doesn't wreck the day. Our afternoons would be harder to manage.

I sometimes toy with doing a Bible study. I have a couple for their age group; I just haven't done anything with them yet. But my youngest is 3, so maybe in a year or two it would be a good time.
