If you are a homeschooling mom, you already know curriculum can be very pricey! Especially since we all want the best education for our kids. After spending tons of money on our core curriculum, school supplies and extra curricular activities there just isn’t enough left over to buy all the things we like to add in. Especially when it comes to Bible if it’s not included. Usually a good Bible curriculum can cost just as much as the complete core you just purchased…ouch. So here’s a great list of free Bible curriculum.
So since not all of us can buy everything we want or need and most of us our living on one income, just barely scraping by, it’s good to have a backup plan.
NOTE: UPDATED October 2020
Of course the Holy Spirit is by far the best teacher when it comes to the Bible, it’s still good to have some added studies to get your hands on to collaborate what the Lord wants you to teach. The Bible is a great place to start and we usually use the S.O.A.P method. S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer.
It is a way of getting more out of your time in God’s word. Which has really worked well for us. I just pick a key scripture and have them write the scripture the first day, second day we observe and see what really stands out to us about this scripture. It could be a phrase or just a word. The Third day we take the scripture and apply it personally to our lives and the fourth day we pray according to the scripture.
