One Sentence Bible Storybooks
I love being able to weave God into every subject in our homeschool. That’s very difficult when finding material for my daughter to practice reading. With her limited abilities, I’m lucky to find stories that have a point at all. One Sentence Bible Storybooks help my daughter remember the most important stories and characters of the Bible. Plus, she gets to practice her reading skills because of the simple words and repetitive text.
We really enjoyed reading the storybooks together, then doing the devotional in the back. There’s even a short prayer to make it easy for parents.
Since each book just gives one sentence on the Bible story, you can expound upon the storybooks by talking about the whole Bible story if your children remember it, or reading to them from larger Storybook Bible.
The story also gives a verse to remember in the back, so we made it our memory verse for the week. A fun and hands-on way to help children memorize scripture is to make a craft and hang it up where they can see it. Then, throughout the week, have them say the verse as they look at their craft that they made. You can make it stick even more by offering a reward for repeating the verse without help at the end of the week.
One Sentence Bible Storybooks come in sets of ten books. The sets that are now available are; Bible Favorites, Bible Heros, Bible Animals.
The Burning Bush Bible Craft
One week, my daughter read Moses and the Bush. The illustrations are adorable and she really liked the image to word guide in the back to help her identify the important words in the story.
After she read the story, I did the short devotional and then helped her do a simple craft for the memory verse of the week.
For this craft, you can draw a bush outline on a piece of green construction paper, or print of this handy printable that I made onto card stock or construction paper.
You’ll need pieces of orange, red, and/or yellow tissue paper and glue. Have your child put a small amount of glue on the bush and attach their tissue paper where they want to represent the bush being on fire. After they are done with this simple craft, have them repeat the verse to you.
There are LOTS of simple Bible crafts you can do with these Storybooks on my Bible Activities for Kids Pinterest Board.
