We split this work into 2 volumes so that parents will feel good about reading the very special stories of the Old Testament directly to their children, without having to flip between various activities and instructions!
This 2-volume set consists of a bound 5½x8½ storybook, Stories from the Books of Moses, and a teaching manual consisting of 8½x11 sheets in a clear plastic folder. The manual contains 24 pages of text (including a short play, Joseph and His Brothers) plus full-page pictures, including 10 full-color reproductions of watercolor paintings. These materials can be used for either a 6-week 3rd grade language arts block or for mixed age youth groups (church, synagogue or similar).
Stories from the Books of Moses, consists of a retelling of stories from the books of Genesis and Exodus (from the Creation to the arrival at the Promised Land) based upon the rich language of the King James version of the Bible.
The manual contains:
- 10 full color paintings with full step-by-step instructions;
- A puppet play, Joseph and His Brothers, including a full script, instructions and tips, and templates;
- Advice on creating a main lesson book;
- Sample schedule and teaching advice.
