The copy work was great because we used it to remember the verses, and to work on penmanship. We could work on block print, as well as New American Cursive. The verses, thus far, have been short enough so that Mr. B doesn't get tired, and he doesn't lose focus.
Ignore the "just got out of bed" hair.

A page from the workbook to show the fun activities inside.
A better shot of a copy work page so you can see what it is like. I love the artwork!
Not only does the study guide tell you what these little icons mean, but during the lesson it lays it out for you so you know exactly what portion of the lesson falls where. In this case, "The Seed" was the thought that "God sometimes uses pain to advance His plan." Then it goes on to "Planting the Seed" which is the HOW things happened/happen. As you can see, the "Additional Planting the Seed" gives a recommended age level. "Watering the Seed" is how you make the overall main idea bloom. How you nurture that idea, and really get it to "stick" so to speak.
I love the "Digging Deeper!" I often made this writing or narration prompts. Sometimes I used them as a mission quest or a mystery he had to solve. I also used these as art prompts. For the example shown, I asked him to draw the emotions you may feel if you were singled out as being both the favorite, and the not favored person.
I also love how Heidi St. John makes sure that ALL members of the family can be included in this study. It really is a family focused product, from the youngest to the oldest.
