CAMPFIRE STANDARDS:

Our units are taught through living book format.They are applicable to all age levels, pre-reader to adult.  If you would like to see how we adjust each level for difficulty (while allowing the whole family to come together), please visit this page HERE.

UNIT DESCRIPTION:

Watch your children’s eyes light up as they hear a whole new narrative and get to learn from a brand new set of experiential activities designed to forever keep the story of our Savior’s birth on their hearts.

Our unit is Charlotte Mason inspired and is in living book format (through the eyes of the shepherds) which is unlike any other.

Anyone who has been to Children’s Church or done a standard Christmas school activity has heard about the Candy Cane being a “J” for “Jesus” or representative of the “Shepherd’s Staff;” We’ve all read and re-read the story of the angel coming to Mary.  We’ve all seen baby Jesus in the manger scene.  Sometimes, repetition can cause the true account to lose its significance in the heart of the hearer.  So, we didn’t do away with it; we just brought it in a new light  …still marinated in holiday tradition.

When your family sits down with these units, all of the holiday hustle and bustle will melt away, leaving you focused on the time you have here and now with your loved ones.  The bonding, the holiday feel, the focus on Jesus, the connection with each other… it all happens in this unit.

There are so many lessons that dads will really love, as well!  It is the PERFECT unit to get the whole family involved.

Every week we have baking options; we have devotional options; we have family games; we have crafts; we have activities using things from around your house (little to no prep!); we have the whole family coming together in Christmas tradition.  AND…

1. We help equip your family to stand on the truth of Jesus being the Savior of the world, in spite of any attacks they might hear against the Bible

2. We have Christmas festivities, history, tradition, family growth, growth in Christ

As far as we have ever seen, there’s never been another Christmas unit study like it!

CORE CONNECTIONS COMPANION:

This can be used as core curriculum (with Core Connections) or as a morning basket item/evening devotional (without Core Connections). To see what is covered in each unit, go HERE.  The Core Connections Companion for this unit matches that of the Caroling Noel unit, so they can also be done together.

*Areas of focus  – quick glimpse:*

GEOGRAPHY/SOCIAL STUDIES/HISTORY: Classical era, shepherds, Israel, Romans

SCIENCE: Physics of sound and music intermixed with nature studies/astronomy

LANGUAGE ARTS: Letter writing, poetry, etymology

MATH SUPPLEMENTATION: Probability and odds (re: Jesus and prophecy)

IMPORTANT NOTES

**THIS UNIT IS INTENTIONALLY MUCH SIMPLER THAN OUR NORMAL UNITS.  IT IS ALSO ONE OF OUR VERY FIRST UNITS AND A HOLIDAY UNIT.  AS SUCH, THE LAYOUT, FLOW, STYLE (ETC) WILL BE DIFFERENT.

The lesson on St. Nicholas is about history, giving, and pointing everything back to what matters most: Jesus. The lesson should be safe for families on both sides of the discussion; however, we always recommend parental screening on anything you may want to double check.**

**Catholic customers: there will likely be a lesson that is at odds with Catholic teachings. We discuss why we take Luke 8:19 and Mark 3:31 literally and delve into the Greek behind it.  Some of our Catholic customers simply choose to skip over that lesson.**

**These units are intentionally simpler than our norm, for the holiday season.  This is true even for the Early Learner Guidebook.**

Differences between the Growing/Advanced Guidebooks in this unit:

  • There are some lessons where the GROWING/ADVANCED guidebooks are identical and needed no variance.
  • There are some lessons with subtle changes in the boxes with blue font, to help with hand-holding or watering down and teaching concepts by utilizing games or specific terms.
  • There are some lessons where the blue font is very different between GROWING/ADVANCED
    (IE: Joseph/Mary/adultery, Saint Nicholas, concepts of adultery, etc)
  • SYW pages are also very different in both (there are coloring pages in GROWING guidebook vs. theological apologetics and discussion in ADVANCED guidebook).
  • Still, all black font (main lesson content) is the same in both guidebooks, as in all of our units.

    This was our very first campfire unit, when our daughter was only five. We learned so much about Jesus and the real meaning of Christmas. The added recipes were the icing on the cake!
