What We’ve Used and Loved Curriculum Series – Bible

This post contains affiliate links.

This is the fifth post in the What We’ve Used and Loved Curriculum Series and this week we are tackling Bible Curriculum. I have to say we have tried a lot of different Bible curriculum. Some we have found that don’t fit us at all and others that work really well. Today I will be sharing with you what we have used and loved and also what I am using for next year.

In the early grades (pre-K and K) I suggest using a Bible storybook. The ones we have really enjoyed are The Jesus Storybook Bible, the BELIEVE Storybook and The Story for Children.

For the elementary and high school years we have loved Positive Action for Christ. This curriculum is very colorful and fun and the kids have learned a lot from it. I have very much enjoyed learning alongside my oldest daughter using their Bible studies for the Middle and High School years.

This past year I decided to try something new with my elementary kids. Though we will probably end up eventually going back to Positive Action for Christ in the future, we loved Apologia’s What We Believe Series. This year we used Who Am I? and have really enjoyed it. My kids were actually bummed when I finished this book and asked if we could keep the book to read it again. I took that as a sign that we should continue with this series and I have decided to use it again next year.

Next year we will also be using Answers for Kids Bible Curriculum. I have had my eye on this curriculum for a while but have been waiting for my younger ones to be old enough to really understand it. It is recommended for ages 7 -11.

This year we also used Learning to Use My Bible curriculum because I wanted my kids to understand how to take a part a verse and locate it in their Bibles. We just started this, but we are all loving it and they are learning so much. Most Bible curriculum just tells you about the stories in the Bible, so I was excited to change it up this year.

This last one isn’t a complete curriculum, though it does cover the entire Bible, but my kids love it so much I had to include it.  It’s the What’s in the Bible DVD series. We seriously own them all plus the Christmas DVD and I often use them along with our Bible curriculum, but honestly my kids just watch them for fun.  Not only do these shows make my kids laugh out loud, but they teach them so much.  Even I learn when I watch them with my kids.

  1. I found this post through pinterest. We are currently using Apologia’s Who is God? with my advanced 1st grader. My 4 yr old and 2 yr old sit in on most readings since it is usually done at breakfast or right after. We have been learning a lot, but it has a very textbook-feel to me. I think my kiddos would enjoy something like Positive Action for Christ. Do you use one “grade” for all of your kiddos or do you get each one of them their own, doing different Bible lessons/day or week? I’m looking for something I can use with my 2 kiddos together who are preschool and 1 st grade.

    1. Hi Stephany, thanks for stopping by. I combined my kids. They are only one grade apart though. You should look at the Kindergarten grade on Christian Book and see if you could do the same. You don’t have to have the little one do the workbooks though. You can just have your preschooler sit in and listen or do a coloring page instead. There are many Bible based coloring books out there. You can find some on Christian book or even the dollar store. I hope that helps!
