Simply...Homeschool, Using The Bible as Our Main Text

Christmas Lessons and Using the Bible as Our Main Text

This week we are focusing on writing and history. We are still learning about the prophecies fulfilled through Jesus as Messiah, as well as the genealogies in the Gospels.  We are also reading the Christmas passage in Luke each day.

We found a wonderful resource from Focus on the Family that we used in our learning about the person of Luke.  We are learning about the historical facts of the events of Jesus. We learned about the historical events taking place during the time of Jesus’s birth and His death-and the persecution in the church afterwards. We talked a great deal about how these are real accurate events and are not just “stories.”

Activities this week involved:

Younger kids: Imagine you are a shepherd in the field the night Jesus was born- write a story about the events that took place.

Older- Write a 2 page essay telling about how Jesus fulfilled the prophecies in the Bible

All- Write a fact sheet about all you learned about Luke {the person} this week. Also,
draw a picture of what you think Luke looked like

Copywork: We used Isaiah 9:6 for dictation, copywork, and handwriting practice {cursive and manuscript}:

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

We are still using spelling words from Luke for our spelling lessons on Spelling City.

Resources used this week: (besides the BIBLE)

Child of Promise– Focus on the Family Radio Theater. Really wonderful audio drama about Luke and his quest to write the book of Luke. I learned so much from this!
