This workbook is to be used in conjunction with the flashcards, e-book and evaluation booklet. This is a coloring book as well. Children will color the pictures to aid in memorization.
This workbook/coloring book is a Bible memory system and comprehension system to understand the pitfalls of the Self-Confident Fool. Click on the Self-Confident Fool icon to view a sample of what is inside.
Here is how to use the workbook:
1. Plan to commit five scriptures per week to memory. Read all five scriptures everyday. You may have to quickly read each commentary at the start to understand the pictures in the memory system. Towards the end of the week turn to the back of the book and find the pictures without the words to quiz yourself. This is a great way to test your memory. Also, encourage coloring the pictures because it helps to connect the words to a visual image. This is a crucial learning tool for visual, right-brain learners.
2. In addition to reviewing the five memory verses per day, focus on the comprehension part of the scriptures. Tackle one scripture entry daily. The comprehension lessons promote character development. So be sure to take the time to answer the questions in your journal and write the definitions when applicable.
3. This manual encourages growth in vocabulary. Try not to let the big words turn you off as you read the commentaries. Research has it that adults who teach the Bible using words like redemption, salvation, apostasy, transgression, etc., in passing, but do not take the time to teach what these words mean. This leaves children in the dark. Many times our own Christian language can be confusing to a child when the meaning of these words are not broken down. In this manual we break down every big word. Always make it a habit to refer to the charts you see in the comprehension sections of this book. The charts help to understand bigger words in the scriptures because the Hebrew meaning of every word is provided. Sometimes the Hebrew meaning to some words like conceit, for example, can be a little confusing. In the Hebrew, conceit means, “eye or fountain”. Many times when the meaning is vague like this, we have provided the definition from the Mirriam-Webster’s Dictionary. By writing the definitions out in a journal, it exposes the student to a bigger vocabulary and it builds a greater understanding of the major concepts that surround our Christian Faith.
4. There are forty-two scriptures to describe the Self-Confident Fool in this manual. If you take the time to memorize five scriptures per week and study the meaning of one scripture per day, then you will have the entire forty-two scriptures committed to memory and comprehended in two months time. These calculations are based off of the assumption that you take Saturday and Sunday off from learning.
