I am so excited to be able to provide this new curriculum for you to use with your family during the school year! The book of James is a wonderful book in the Bible, and this curriculum is designed to help you and your child experience that book in a way that will draw you closer to Jesus each day!
Let me take this time to tell you a little bit more about what you will find in this curriculum. This curriculum is designed to spend an entire school year (35 weeks) in the book of James. Each week has a focus Scripture that is found in James, and is divided into five separate days of study as follows:
Day One: Introducing the new Scripture, discussion over the verses in James, Scripture memory and copywork.
Day Two: Exploring an Old Testament passage that relates to the focus Scripture.
Day Three: Exploring a New Testament passage that relates to the focus Scripture.
Day Four: Exploring the topic of the focus Scripture in more detail, especially as it relates to current life applications.
Day Five: Journaling Through James – suggested journal topics are given for your child to explore in writing. Additional ideas are given for children who struggle with writing or who have not yet learned to write.
In addition to the daily lessons, ideas are provided at the end of each week for extended study throughout the curriculum. These ideas include the subjects of Math, Language Arts, History/Geography, Science, Art, and Songs or video links that relate to that week’s focus Scripture. Finally, each week also includes at least one “Faith Into Action Idea” – or an idea of how you can put your faith into action by serving with your child.
Also, memory work time is included in each day’s lesson, with the ultimate goal being memorization of the entire book of James by the end of the school year!
As you can see, a lot is included in this curriculum! The curriculum is packed full of ideas, links, worksheets, and more, that you will be able to easily adapt to meet the needs of your individual child. And, if your child is a struggling reader or writer, there are ideas to help him, too!

I purchased the James curriculum. I love it. But I only received Chapters 1-4. Is Chapter 5 available?
I am in the process of finishing chapter five. I will let you know when I get it finished and will get it to you then! Glad you like it 🙂
Just wanted to let you know that Chapter Five is now available. You can get it for free here: https://gumroad.com/l/TrfPj#
If I buy the book version, does it have links listed for videos?
There are links listed in the book for videos and other sites that give crafts or snack ideas that go along with the lessons.
