Handwriting is like reading. It's one of those necessary life skills we all must learn. And we must teach our children too!
My middle son is 4 and currently learning to read and write. His reading is better than his writing at this point. His fine-motor skills need more time and practice to develop.
But, what does handwriting have to do with the Bible? Well, I'm not talking about the handwriting on the wall in the book of Daniel! But, if the Bible is the Word of God and the center of our theology, then it relates to everything we teach and learn, right? Then, why not use it to teach handwriting too?
Trisha Gilkerson at Intoxicated on Life and her husband have written several resources designed to help kids learn and memorize the Bible while also practicing handwriting. They call the series Write Through the Bible.
She has now created a new handwriting program for your 4- to 6-year-olds. This latest resource is called Write Through the Bible Jr.
I am excited about this new resource because this is exactly what my son needs right now. He needs a place to practice and hone his handwriting skills – and what a bonus for him to learn the Bible at the same time!
Using Write Through the Bible Jr.
Trisha sent over a copy of the ESV Ball and Stick Manuscript version for Write Through the Bible Jr. so I could try it out with my son. It was a hit!
He had so much fun! He loves using the Do-A-Dot markers so that was his favorite part of the lesson. He kept asking me to print more pages.
Inside Write Through the Bible Jr.
Write Through the Bile Jr. teaches beginning handwriting while also studying Philippians 2:1-18. This unique resource helps your child:
- Improve fine-motor coordination
- Learn letter sounds
- Learn how to form letters
- Memorize Philippians 2:1-18
- Learn new vocabulary words
- Study Philippians 2:1-18 and learn what it means to have a heart of humility.
You can choose from ESV or KJV in these handwriting formats:
- Ball-and-Stick Manuscript
- D'Nealian Manuscript
I like how it's all laid out for you as the parent. There's little advance prep or additional materials needed. Grab the workbook. Gather up a pencil, crayons, and Do-A-Dot markers. Start writing! It's so simple.
