Instructor Texts for Telling God’s Story 1-4
by Peter Enns and Rachel Marie Stone
Scripted sets of 36-39 lessons each, taking elementary students and teachers through four years of learning about Jesus’ life, teachings, death, and resurrection, and the life and beliefs of the early church. For each week, the instructor text gives helpful background information and commentary for the teacher, a passage from the Gospels, Acts, or Epistles to read aloud, and a scripted explanation of the passage designed so that young children will easily grasp the meaning.
Activity Books for Telling God’s Story 1-4
by Justin Moore
Edited by Justin Moore and featuring the work of talented artists, designers, parents, and educators (including many of the same people who worked on the Story of the World activity books), these student guides provides activities, crafts, coloring pages, Bible memory work, classroom games, and group projects to accompany every lesson in the Instructor Texts.
What Parents Are Saying
“I love that the curriculum starts with Jesus. That’s a huge plus for me.”
“Takes concepts that are abstract and puts them into concrete language for children to understand. Brilliant!”
“The Activity Guide is superb, chock-full of crafts, art projects, art appreciation, coloring pages, puzzles, recipes (very similar to the Story of the World Activity Guide).”
“I am so excited to get started, being able to present who Jesus is to my girls, not just a set of rules or something that can later be shrugged off as irrelevant…a solid grounding.”
“It’s like nothing I’ve ever read before, and it is very refreshing and freeing.”
“This is what I have been looking for, for so long…my 9-year-old son really, really enjoyed it and so did I. Love it!!!”
