We are using these to supplement with our Bible reading as we go through the book Luke one chapter a night (like advent) to retell the life of Jesus and the events leading up to Easter. These have been fun to read, look up the scripture and then hang on the wall. We review each night all the letters before the new one.
I’m using these for an Easter unit with my 11 year old son. It’s a wonderful way to break down the story into bite-size pieces that present the information in a way that’s different from reading the story straight from the Bible. It lets me focus on just one thing at a time and have a discussion about that topic. For example, when we covered “B for Barabas” we were able to talk specifically about what the people of the day were thinking and how mob mentality can take over rational thought, or about how ancient Palestine viewed blasphemy, or what the political climate of the day was. It opens up more intimate conversation and allows us to really dig into the story, rather than approach it as an overview. I’m so grateful for these tools to make teaching my kids about Jesus so much more engaging!
