Welcome to the 7th study in the series and is based on Gentleness (No Hitting/Biting/ Kicking,etc.) Click on the image or link below to download a pdf of this study.
Other books required for this study: The Bible (any version will do!)
Each day you will learn a verse, read a story where this sin is illustrated, then discuss the consequences of this sin followed up by the blessings of obedience. I encourage discussion with your children on ways they can help one another to stay free from this sin. Putting these ideas into practice on a daily basis will help them to become habit.
Our daily/weekly “Challenge” for this week: “honor one another with brotherly love”. Also a well known verse in our house: Eph 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
I have a sticker sheet and anyone caught making good choices, that’s right “caught making good choices” gets a sticker. I tend to only respond when someone is making bad decisions, and this helps me to focus on the good instead. Whoever has the most stickers at the end of the week gets a prize, and frankly if I think my kids are actually trying their best then everyone gets a prize.
I hope this study blesses your family as it has mine!
Erica,Just wanted to let you know that I recently purchased your Letter of the Week Curriculum, and I love it!I'm starting it with my 5 yr. old daughter today, and I know she's going to enjoy it.I can't believe the huge number of activities and resources you included for each letter. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and hard work with the homeschool community. Your blog is such a blessing to me… and to many other families I'm sure. :)Blessings,Shannon
I love this! What age would you recommend a study like this??
Erica,I just printed out the Bible study on Gentleness. I pray that it will help my two boys ages 11 and almost 5 who bicker daily. Thank you for the blessing!
Thank you so much for sharing these!
