Review: Bible Study Guide For All Ages

Over the years we have used many programs for our Bible time. Some we liked and some we didn't, but the thing I noticed about most was that there didn't seem to be a continuous building in the program. I think most had the plan to do so, but it didn't feel that way to me. Issac also enjoys more interactive work, so when I read about the Bible Study Guide For All Ages it seemed a good fit for Issac.  I chose the Intermediate (3rd & 4th grade) for Issac to try as well as the  Wall Maps and Timeline set.  The Intermediate set is suggested for 3rd & 4th grade, but after comparing the amount of writing to that in the Advanced set I felt it was a better fit for Issac.  I think I was most excited for Issac to see the Wall Maps and Timeline Set because he greatly prefers more interactive work.

5th Grade-End of Year Review

Wow, I can't believe that I no longer have any children in elementary grades! On one hand that seems SO cool and on the other it makes me sad. It feels in some ways that just yesterday I started homeschooling and now my 3rd child will be starting 6th grade. It feels like we'll be done homeschooling sooner than I'd like. That said we had a great 5th grade year. Lot of stuff happening and lots of patience required :)

I think we used so many different programs, books, etc this year that at this point I'm not even sure I remember what all we used! I started my second year on the review crew and there are always LOTS of great things to be reviewed. Some of the things that stand out for me are that Issac really loved CTC Math. I had looked at this program previously for my daughter, but for some reason we didn't go with it.  He loved this program from day 1. He's really only used Teaching Textbooks, but he prefers CTC Math and I think we'll stick with it for now.…
