I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
My goal as a Christian parent has always been to make sure my kids know God and Jesus Christ. Reading our Bibles is one of our most influential books in the house. However, I want my kids always to be learning more from the Bible. Positive Action for Christ has given me Bible Studies, like Wise Up: Wisdom in Proverbs, to help my kids dig deeper into their bibles.
What Is It
I got a copy of the Wise Up Student Manual and the Wise Up Teacher Guide for this review. As soon as I got these, I knew this company was going to give me what I wanted for my kids, so I went ahead and bought a digital copy of the Fourth Grade study for Little Miss.
The Wise Up Teacher’s Guide came with a 3-ring binder and dividers for the three sections, Teaching Material, Testing Material, and Answers. Each week is a new lesson, and the teacher’s guide gives you everything you need to teach your child the lesson and the student pages with the answers.
The Wise Up Student Manual is a paperback bible study. The lessons to be done once a week and there are 35 lessons. The beginning of the lesson has your child working through different parts of Proverbs, and the end of the study is the outline of the Teaching Lesson that you will read from the Teacher’s Guide.
How We Used It
At the beginning of the Teacher’s Guide, there are suggested weekly schedules. We opted for doing it five days a week, even through the summer. On the first day of the week, I introduce the target truths we will be learning during the week, our Scripture memory verse, and the teaching lesson.
Over the rest of the week, we review the memory verse and work on the student exercises. On Fridays or the last day of the week, we do a quiz and see if we have memorized the memory verse.
Ray Ray has been able to do many of the student exercises independently, but it didn’t start that way. We had never found a bible study like this made for kids before, one that has the kids dig into the bible to find the answers instead of the basic stuff they already knew. Ray Ray struggled to get through some of the more challenging questions (explain in your own words what this means types of questions). But as we continued, I loved seeing that he needed my help less and less.
What We Thought of It
If I can say, this bible study and Positive Action for Christ is a prayer answered, that is the truth. The bible studies they have for kids make it so the kids are digging into their bible to find the answers. They walk away with knowledge and not just fill in answers and mark the box to say they completed the assignment.
The teacher’s guide is easy for me to use and easy for me to understand. I can understand my role in the teaching process for the week and what is expected of Ray Ray. Even Ray Ray knows what he needs to do each week. He knows that he can break the week down as he wants to, doing more one day and less the next.
Positive Action for Christ and Wise Up: Wisdom in Proverbs is just what our Bible study time needed! Check out more reviews right here.
