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.
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!
