A Review of Weave Your Word in Me -- Part 1 from Kid Niche Christian Books

Studying the Bible is a very important part of the curriculum in our school.  It is one we take very seriously because we want our kids to learn about the Bible, God, and how to apply the learning to their lives.  I have tried many different Bible studies over the years of homeschooling and I always have a hard time finding a study that I like all the aspects of.  There always seems to be one part or another that I just don't care for.  This is why I was intrigued to receive Weave Your Word in Me -- Part 1 to review from Kid Niche Christian Books.  I wondered if this Bible study would be a good fit for Little Miss.

Kid Niche Christian Books is on a mission.  Their mission is to produce family-friendly, skill-based biblical resources for anyone who wants to know God and talk to God.  They want the resources they produce to help guide kids of all ages to understand who God is and how to interact with Him in meaningful ways.  They hope the kids' interaction with God will change their life.  They have products for young children to read with their parents to learn more what Jesus taught.  They offer products for tweens and teens that are designed to help this age of children grow in God.

Weave Your Word in Me -- Part 1 that we received is designed for kids in 4th through 6th grades.  It can be used for homeschool, Christian School, Sunday School, or even Family Devotions.  This curriculum teaches your student the truths that Jesus teaches in the Lord's Prayer.  It includes 36 lessons that are all ready to go in a three ring binder.  There are 72 colored pages and 2 units that cover God the Father and God the Son.  The answer key for this curriculum features multiple Bible translations since people sometimes use different ones than the King James Version.  There are even enrichment activities, like bonus videos, online that go with the curriculum.  It is available for just $20.00 on their website.

When we received our copy of this curriculum, I looked over it to see what to expect from it.  It teaches what prayer is, that God wants a relationship with us, and that God loves us and cares for us.  It also teaches about Jesus' birth, His ministry while on Earth, His betrayal, death, and resurrection., and how we can become a Child of God.  The lessons have your student read from a passage from the Bible and then answer questions.  Some of the questions are fill in the blank, matching, true and false, and multiple choice.  Each lesson also has a specific prayer that your student can fill in the blanks for and then pray through.  Each prayer has the student fill in a specific point that they learned in the lesson that they can pray about.

Little Miss, who is in 4th grade, really liked working through this curriculum.  She liked using her Bible to read the passage and then answer the questions in the lesson.  She liked searching the passage to find out the answers.  She liked being able to add something specific from the lesson to her prayer for each lesson so that she could pray for it.  She really enjoyed the format of this product and thought that the lessons didn't take too long, but weren't too short either.  She also liked the variety of methods to answer the questions.  It kept her from getting bored with this curriculum.  Her only complaint was that sometimes her version of the Bible didn't match the text of the lesson.  When this happened we used a Bible app on our iPad to look up other translations.

As a parent, I really appreciated this Bible study curriculum.  I liked how it had her learning about the Lord's Prayer, but it was also teaching her the basics of making her own personal relationship with God so that God is real to her.  Every lesson held her attention and required her to do more than just read a verse or two.  She had to read the passage to start.  Then as she worked through the lesson she had to repeatedly refer back to the passage.  I think this method helped her retain the lesson better than other Bible curriculum I have used with her.  I also liked that the prayer at the end of the lesson encouraged her to pick something specific she learned from the lesson to pray about.  This also helped her keep the lessons fresh in her mind.  Even though she did the work for this lesson in school, she would pray again at bed time and include the specific prayer from her lesson.  I really liked that she decided to do this and it helped her retain what she was learning.  I like that you can spread these lessons out or you can work on one each day.  She has completed 15 lessons because she likes doing them and wants to work on them more to learn more about God.  I will definitely have her finish working through this curriculum because I think it is a good Bible study for her.  I will also be checking into Part 2 of this Bible Study.

I recommend Weave Your Word in Me -- Part 1 if you want a good Bible curriculum for your student.  You can learn more about it by clicking here.  You can learn more about Kid Niche Christian books by visiting their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.  You can also read how my friends on the Homeschool Review Crew have been using this with their students by clicking on the banner below.
