Bible Study Guide for All Ages

Bible Study Guide for All Ages is an in-depth bible study in 416 lessons. The Student Pages guide you through each lesson and come in four levels covering ages 3 through 6th grade. The Beginner level (for ages 3 – Kindergarten) and Primary level (for 1st – 2nd grade) require a parent’s guidance throughout the lesson. The Intermediate level (3rd – 4th grade) and Advanced level (5th-6th grade) may either be guided by the parent or completed by the student on their own. You can have all of your children study through the same Bible text at the same time. Recommendations on how to do it may be found here.

Optional materials that are referenced in the Student Pages teach chronology, the contents of the Bible Books, maps and more.

We have used this program in our homeschool for many years.
My younger children use the beginner pages which have a nice summary of the Bible story along with cartoon pictures that depict the story. There are review questions at the beginning of each lesson as well as topics to discuss how the Bible story applies to us today.
My daughter uses the intermediate pages in 3rd and 4th grade. These have more detailed review, map work, and timelines. The story is meant to be read from the Bible as these pages do not contain a summary of the story.
I love that I can cover Bible stories with all of my kids at their own levels - we all study the same topics together. My kids enjoy the cartoon drawings as they follow along in the Bible story.
The program is very easy to use and the lessons only take about 20 minutes. My kids remember the Bible stories very well and in 4 years we have covered the major stories and people in the Bible.

I used this when my daughter was younger. The material was very thorough which I really appreciated. However, my daughter has some learning delays which affected her opinion of the curriculum. She was somewhat overwhelmed with it and needed something not so challenging at that time. This might be something I would try again.

The best and mos thorough Bible program available. We love it! We went through levels 1, 2, 3, and most of 4. I recommend it to all new homeschoolers. We still have the maps and timeline on our wall and I have no plans to take them down. It's a great conversation piece when visitors come.

Pros
Well thought out. The activities are varied and rarely repeat.
Cons
It says for all ages and yes, it can and does work for all ages, but if you have gone thru the entire program and now have a teen, it would be so great if they had one aimed at teens asking hard questions.

We really loved this program when we received the intermediate level for review. We used it for another 2 books and are doing it again this year with the Beginner & Intermediate levels for my almost 8 and almost 5 year old. I'm excited to pick this up again. The timeline and book cards are great!

I would have given it a 5 if it had the missing Catholic books :).

Overall, we enjoyed using this last year. It is fairly priced so that was a huge bonus. One aspect that I wasn't crazy about was the 'Get Active' section. I know most would disagree, but I found for the most part that it was mundane or geared towards large classrooms. My kids liked it okay, but we decided to go with something else this year. I would recommend this because it's a good starting point. And who knows, maybe some time we will go back to this.

My girls love the student pages. The way it is set up you can use it for all ages! I bought the Teacher Book when I bought the beginning pages. I feel that it is not necessary at this age/level but it is a nice resource to have for me to be able to study more in depth at the same time.

We've been using this as our homeschooling Bible study for our kindergartener. We love it! When I ask our son what his favorite subject is, he always says it's the Bible! There are a few extra options you can purchase (cards, CD, etc) and we only purchased the CD as an extra to the book. Personally, I don't care for the CD (the singing is acapella and not great quality imo) so we may listen to the songs one or twice then skip it. But no complaints! The stories about the children are relevant to our 5yo and while he's already been familiar with the stories we've talked about thus far, he's learning more details about them. I do love the question review of previous Bible stories to make sure it sticks! All in all, we love it and will continue to use this curriculum without the "extras"- just need a Bible, the book and some crayons!

Out of all the curriculum we use, my kids (3 & 4) RUN to do the Bible Study Guide for All Ages! If we miss doing it in the morning, they make sure we do it before bed. I love that it's so engaging for them. They've memorized verses and books of the bible. We love it and can't wait to order the next set!

We use Bible Study Guide for our homeschool. I plan to use the primary for my 3 year old and 1st grader this year. The primary level is a little too easy for my 1st grader but I like that I can go through a lesson for both of them at the same time and add harder subjects for the 1st grader. My kids love reviewing bible facts with the primary flash cards. I also plan to use the books of the bible cards this year. I love how much information they have on them. My kids have memorized almost all the songs on the CDs. I have nothing bad to say about this. My kids have retained so much bible knowledge just from one year of use!

I used this in a congregational setting and would love to use it in my homeschool. I still use the timeline in my current Bible class. It was so nice to be able to use something that was just Bible and not fluff. I loved using BSGFAA.

Pros
Very thorough/scripturally accurate/spiral approach allows for plenty of review! Easy to use-tools like timelines and summary cards supplement the workbook pages so nicely. I also love how it addresses Bible Geography.

We are about to start our 4th year using Bible Study Guide for all Ages, so obviously we find it a great fit for us. Not only have I used it for family bible study, but I have also used it while teaching bible classes in my local congregation. For the purpose of this review, it might be helpful to know that my children are currently 11, 8, and 7.

Originally I purchased the student pages, teacher guides, summary cards, and CDs but now I only have to purchase the student pages and teacher guides each year. I think the timeline would be a great investment, and I've considered buying it for the bible class I teach, but at my home I don't have a place to put it up. Thankfully, the timelines (and maps) on the student pages have been more than sufficient. I'm so glad we purchased the bible summary cards, too. We use them a lot at home and in bible class playing games that I have made up with them. We also love the CDs but since we memorized every single song in about a month's time, we don't listen to it much anymore. Though, we do still sing them, just not with the CD. I will say that once you learn the songs, you won't ever forget a judge's name or the sons of Jacob again. In fact, we learned those songs three years ago and it proved helpful last month during our congregations' child training class. The judges were the next things on the list of things to memorize and my children were able to cross that off the list quite quickly. (The bible time periods were also easy to cross off because of the extensive timeline work they have been doing on the student pages.)

Not only has this curriculum provided a wealth of information for my children, but it has also encouraged me to grow as a christian, having only been one for 5 years at the time we started the program.

I really like how everyone can be on the same bible lesson at the same time but have work that corresponds to their own level. Before I bought the curriculum, I printed out the website's sample student pages and sample teacher guides from the levels I needed and gave it a trial run with my kids. This allowed me to see how a lesson would flow with children on different levels. It also helped me really understand how the curriculum works.

My children enjoy this curriculum because they are learning so much. They are very aware of how much they know in comparison to other people in general and it was at one of their requests that I started using it in bible class to help other children gain in bible knowledge. They especially enjoy the pictures on the student pages. I enjoy the application sections because sometimes the application may not have been one I would have connected to that story. It really helps me to think outside of the obvious sometimes.

The website is correct in saying that you do not "need" the teacher guides in the intermediate and advanced levels, but I still find them helpful and buy them anyway.

Hands down the best part of this curriculum for me is the absence of man made doctrine. I'm very careful to make sure whatever I teach my children comes directly from the bible and not man's ideas of something. This curriculum makes that easier for me.

I just interviewed my 7 yr old son about what he likes about this curriculum. He said, "I like that it's divided in sections and that the map and timeline rotates days."

My 11 yr old said, "I like the format of the sheets. They're not just fill in the blank type questions. I'm thankful for the constant review and I appreciate the emphasis on praying at the end of each lesson. I enjoy my prayer time."

My 8 yr old said, "I like how the timeline and maps help the story make more sense in my head. I can see where and when it happened compared to other stories."

Just got our 1st grade primary set of lessons in and I am LOVING it! It's so visual and thorough, yet fun looking. The timeline is a fabulous visual for everyone to understand how the Bible walks through history. I love the flashcards too that provide a great way to remember what each book is all about. The worksheets have so much on them it's amazing. GREAT JOB!
