Introductory Note: I purchased this on my own. I did not receive a free copy to review. Hence, these are my honest opinions and assessments on the curriculum.
We used Foundations 1: Preparation for Christ by Anne Elliott last year. I chose this one because it starts in the beginning (Genesis) and goes chronologically. This is simple to use. You read a bible passage, do bible drills, discuss it, and then move on–exactly what I was looking for. She also uses Calvary Chapel’s coloring sheets for the little ones.
However, this covers the entire Old Testament so huge chunks are left out in order to squeeze it into one school year. We often added our own when we wanted to read more. This really needs to be broken into two books.
Ms. Elliott writes two more books that cover the New Testament after this is complete. You can preview these on her website HERE. This looks to be a bit more thorough because it is broken into the two years.
For this year, I haven’t decided on Bible Curriculum yet. We are doing Bible Study Fellowship’s study of Genesis and finishing up Foundations 1 when we have the chance. I’m unsure if we will continue onto this or jump over to Apologia’s What We Believe Series. I will see how this school year goes first and maybe invest in this in December.
