Planning for Our Year One- Bible Study

From Charlotte Mason's writings- pg 248, volume 1:
"We are probably quite incapable of measuring the religious receptivity of children."

This post is concerning our Bible study for year one. I came across this wonderful blog site- she has lovely Bible studies and book recommendations. I highly recommend taking a look.

One particular book she recommends caught my eye- Aunt Charlotte's' Stories of Bible history by Mary Charlotte Yonge. This book has 52 chapters and each chapter has 3 lessons. We will use this book as a guide. We will compare these lessons to the scripture in the KJV Bible. With 52 chapters and doing one chapter a week, we have one year covered. And the best part is that you can download this book for free. We will use an Bible atlas as we study our way through the Bible. For memory verses, I really like Simply Charlotte Mason. Our nightly devotionals will come come from Little Visits with God by Allan Hart Jahsman and Martin P. Simon. We have loved this book so far.

I think Bible study planning is done. Next is Geography. Til then, Many blessings.

We love using The Children's Illustrated Bible retold by Selina Hastings. Maybe I will show it on my blog for those who are not familiar with it. Got a sick one at home now, so blog time is limited. Hopefully, I can write about it soon!
