When we are doing school, a lot of our schoolwork is intertwined with the Bible somehow. We focus a lot on the familiar books, but sometimes we use some of the ones that aren’t as familiar. These Printable Books of the Bible “Summary Sheets” by Teach Sunday School are fantastic!
We printed them off as we needed them, although we used them for different things.
One of our drawing things that we do each day is basically drawing through the Bible. One of them that we do is drawing through the book of Acts, and one of them is about the life of Jesus.
We spend a lot of time in Acts, but the kids don’t really know much about the book, or the books in general in the Bible.
These sheets go over a lot of information in just a short little page.
For this particular book, which is Acts, It tells you the very basic info like if it is Old or New Testament, who the author was, and when it was written. A lot of the times the kids always ask me who wrote a particular book and sometimes I just don’t even know… This is totally great for that.
It mentions the time period that it was covered too. That is nice if you are doing a timeline or something similar.
There is a claim to fame for the book as well as some famous stories and the most famous verses. I think if you were looking for a particular story, it would be great to have these all printed so that you could just scan for that story. The same with the verses.
At the very bottom of the page there is some important points about the book.
It is all put together so very nicely. Your eyes follow the next thing in order and aren’t just roaming across the page wondering where to land. The graphics aren’t distracting and are quite helpful.
Now another thing we did was print off some sheets from books that we really hadn’t gone into much, or at all.
Nahum is such a short chapter, I know that if we went through it at all it would have just been briefly.
I enjoyed the summaries a lot for these books, the ones that we weren’t as familiar with!
When Ryan was little, one of his favorite Bible stories involved Ninevah. You know, it was Jonah, right? Anyway, this is about the other part of Ninevah…
The sheet is set up the same as the others, which is nice for familiarity of knowing where to look for the information that you are wanting. You can tell that this one has a lot more writing in the important points section than the one from Acts! And for a book that is only three chapters long, you know that it must be an important book!
I think these are great for families! I could also see them being used in Sunday School at church or in a co-op setting with your homeschool. There is a lot of information on each one, and I love that there may be information that you don’t know on there!
