Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! is a wonderful new curriculum from Brookdale House. The books take you from the beginning stages of learning letters and numbers and writing small words found in the weekly Scriptures in Book 1 to larger portions and full Scriptures in Book 3. With two little ones beginning “formal” homeschooling this year, I am so excited about this new curriculum. As a Christian parent, I love finding ways to add more Scripture into their lives. And when it doubles as Bible and any other subject – BONUS!! We use a similar curriculum for our oldest child, but he is far past this stage and I was sad that I couldn’t find a similar curriculum for my Middles. I am so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to review and promote this fabulous new handwriting curriculum. Read on to find out how you can WIN a set for yourself!
The Bible Handwriting Practice series is a 3 book series, designed to teach traditional manuscript handwriting to young students, using the Bible as the source for the handwriting models.
Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! Book 1 teaches students to write letters and numbers and guides them in writing Biblical words and short passages of Scripture.
Frequently when the word Eden is used is literature, the author is making a Biblical allusion to the Garden of Eden. The same is true for many common Biblical terms.
The benefit of using some of these terms as handwriting models is that students learn that the word being studied has literary meaning.
Handwriting Practice: From the Bible! Book 2 reviews letter and number writing, and then teaches children to write short passages of Scripture that begin with that week’s letter of the alphabet.
Book 2 has review lessons followed by 26 passages of Scripture, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. When studying the 26 passages, students practice writing the longer words form the passage on days 1, 2, and 3. On day 4, students write the entire passage as well as the chapter and verse reference.
