The Birth of Jesus {a Grapevine review}

I know I've shared with you before about how much we love Grapevine Studies Stick-Figuring-Through-the-Bible curriculum and I want to tell you more!  

This curriculum has truly been a blessing to our family this school year.  I am primarily using this with my 8-yr-old son and not once this entire school year has he complained when I say "let's do your Bible lesson".  He's ready to go every single time and loves every minute of it.  

I love that they also have short series with only a few lessons so that you can choose one to fit a certain season or time that doesn't require a long series of lessons.  

The Birth of Jesus includes some introductory timelines, four lessons, and a final review.  That was just right for the month of December!  

The lessons in this study are:
  • The Announcement
  • The Birth of Jesus
  • The Proclamation
  • The Wise Men and Herod
As you can tell from my son's drawings above the thoroughly enjoys these lessons.  

A typical lesson for us goes something like this: pull out his student notebook with the student pages and I get out my teacher's guide with the teacher's pages, grab the crayons (or colored pencils), grab my son's Deep Blue Bible, make sure the chalkboard is clean and the chalk is ready ...then we go!

We look up the Scriptures and read and discuss them.  These lessons are really helping my son become much better at looking things up in the Bible (win!).  They are just a joy to use all the way around!

If you have not yet checked them out, you really should!  They even offer some great free sample lessons for you to try before purchasing a complete curriculum. 

Their curriculum is very reasonably priced, with The Birth of Jesus starting at just $6 for the eBook version.
