Sound Words for Kids: Lessons in Theology
The Sound Words for Kids curriculum is a theology-based curriculum that teaches the essentials of the Christian faith to children. It can be used for family devotions, homeschool curriculum, or in Sunday schools and co-ops. The curriculum follows a catechism style, meaning it uses a questions and answer format to help kids memorize each lesson’s main point.
Clarissa from Counting Our Blessings reviewed Sound Words with her kids up to 10 years old!
As a very busy mama to 7 young children, I needed a curriculum that offered structure and guidance, creativity and ideas to make it engaging, but that also was flexible, not too time consuming, not full of crafts I would never have time for, and could be used with our Bible version of choice. I have found that Sound Words fits our needs nicely.
Gabby from Mama Gab reviewed Sound Words and demonstrates how simple it can be to teach profound truths to little kids!
Sound Words really is a simple curriculum that teaches deep truths, truths that are like tiny deposits into the bank. One day, the interest gained on these truths will be invaluable. In many ways, it already is.
Penny Lane from Sisters Raising Sisters talks about using a catechism in classical homeschooling and shows how she uses Sound Words with her kids!
All those extra, hands-on activities is why I love this particular catechism so much, and why we have switched to using it exclusively. It works great for both my pre-reading/writing 3-year-old and my budding reader/writer 4-year-old… Honestly, this is something every family, whether homeschooling or not, should think about doing together.
Annette from In All You Do explains how she scaled Sound Words to use it with her 4th grader as well as her younger kids!
What I love about this curriculum is the simplicity of it all. The lessons are simple, yet biblical. The lessons do not require hours of preparation or study time from me, yet they are full of doctrine that I want my kids to know! They really teach the core of our faith so simply. The crafts are simple and quick with very few supplies, most of which I had on hand – another plus!
