Bible Readings

There is a lot of focus on the Book of Mormon in church classes, and that's what we read with the kids for family scriptures, so for school, we're reading the Bible. I love the language of the King James, and I'm excited to be doing it with my kids. With being blessed with so much scripture, it can be hard to cover it all well, and make sure that we know all the stories from all of the Standard Works.


Dragon and Hero both use the same list of narrative passages. I'm deeply indebted to Calvary Curriculum's readings they use in their original children's curriculum that they generously share for free. We do not do their worksheets, but their work at selecting the narrative portions of the Bible's text has been invaluable to me. For Dragon, last year I'd tell him the story; this year, I'm reading it to him. Then he narrates it back to me, and we choose a phrase to draw into his Bible, along with a scene to illustrate. The next time we read, we usually start by reviewing the last several passages to pick up the thread of the story. Hero simply reads the text himself, and the narrates it to me. We typically do our Bible work about 4 times in a week.
