Catechism isn't just for Catholics. :)
Our homeschool day starts with scripture memory time. Lydia (8) and I work together on her verses in the dining room, while Mary (11) and Catherine (10) go into the living room and work together on theirs. We set the timer for 15 minutes and, surprisingly this is sufficient! Lydia usually gets one verse down in that time, and we still have time to work on her other verses. I like to use the Scripture Memory booklets from Scripture Memory Fellowship. Even though my personal favorite translations are the ESV and the NASB 1977 version, and most of our school reading is out of the NLT, we have chosen the NKJV booklets to memorize from. For a long time I couldn't decide what translation to use for scripture memory... after all, these verses stick with you for a lifetime... but I spent so much time hemming and hawing I realized NO scripture would stick with us for a lifetime if we didn't start memorizing it, so I closed my eyes and picked one, so to speak. :)
After our scripture memory time, we roll into our Catechism time. I read from Training Hearts Teaching Minds: Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism. I like this book because it is divided by days of the week, and all I have to do is read from that day's lesson. After we have read through that, the girls open up their Westminster Shorter Catechism for Kids workbooks by Caroline Weerstra. Lydia and I work through hers together, and Mary & Catherine work independently. I feel the workbooks help cement what they learned from the devotions... instead of just listening, they get to write down what they learned, and give it that little extra boost.
That's what our homeschool does for Bible. In my next homeschool post I will talk about what we use for History & Geography. :)
