Raising Rock Stars ::Week 2::

Raising Rock Stars

The girls and Zachary are in different levels of Awana, so for our 'group' time we're doing something together daily that has absolutely nothing to do with either of their Sparks verses.

Every morning we are using the Day by Day Kid's Bible: The Bible for Young Readers {Tyndale} to read together at breakfast. This version is simplified for the kids and has daily readings so that you can read through the Bible in a year. The passages are under 10 minutes worth of reading, so it isn't so overwhelming for the kids, and it's easy enough that I can also have the girls read it out loud {and get a little reading practice in with them}.

For Awana this week, the girls have been working on memorizing the 23rd Psalm and have it almost memorized completely. As part of the study, their WingRunner books also have character studies of different Bible figures, so we've been learning more about David, Solomon, and Elijah.

Zachary has been working on Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:31. We talked about the different days of Creation and talked about what happened each day of creation.
Stop by Carisa's blog too and see what other families are doing to raise their own little Rock Stars at home!!

  • Jolanthe, your printables are incredible! What a great idea! My youngest just finished Sparks HangGlider Red 1, so we'll be using your cards and following right along with you. My older son is in T&T Boys - Book 1. I guess I'll have to take the lead in making little cards for his level as well. Thanks for sharing!

  • I love your cards! We don't do Awana, but you have inspired me to "jazz up" our memory verse charts/cards.

  • I would like to recommend a site to you that you might find useful. I use the coloring sheets for lapbooks or just for a lesson. The worksheets are for a bit older kids but are still useful.What I like about this site is that it offers lessons a lot of the bible. If you have a chance check it out.

  • YOU ROCK...let's just get that out of the way... I Love AWANA too it's so great to see my kids get so excited about their verses, but this just put me over the edge of excitement... the possiblities are endless with you!!!
    What you do for the homeschooling community is so wonderful and I am so thankful for all your tips, help, and of corse the FREE printouts are a big bonus;-)
    Thanks again
