Ordered Tiny systematics and tiny apologetics to supplement some teaching in our Awana program. The first night could not have gone better. The kids moms were in class with us and we all learned what thee-ah-luh-jee is, and that we are all theologians if we are reading and learning God’s word! Hello my name is sheri and I’m a theologian!
I am so excited to add this to our homeschool curriculum! It’s easy to follow and my daughter has already learned so much since starting.
I ordered Tiny Systematics and Tiny Apologetics (along with the memory cards for each) out of a kind of desperation. I volunteer in my church's children's ministry and have been so disheartened by the curriculum that is being presented to the kids. So many lessons are being watered down and turned into "how does this say I should treat my friends"? Lessons where it has nothing to do with friendship. I work with the 1st-5th graders and I simply feel like we are selling them short. I hear the teens asking questions that they should already have the answers to as foundational to their faith, but what should we expect when the foundations we are teaching them at a younger age are nothing but positive affirmations. There is no concept of who God is and why we believe what we believe. I decided I would bring my own curriculum in for the days that I taught. I found TIny Theologians a while ago when looking for curriculum to do with my own child over the summer. While I will still use it with him, I am going to also use it to help guide me in my lessons with the Children's Church kids. They deserve it. As someone who has studies Apologetics/Theology I find these books to be beautifully done, rich in content, and perfect for children. I highly recommend them.
Quality find! Pricey but I must admit it’s worth it. If you want to be able to answer your kids questions and prepare them for the questions they will definitely encounter I think this is a big asset to help you.
I love this workbook! Highly recommend. I use it for my 9 year but my 6 & 4 year old can also join in with discussion and learn definitions. I also just love the layout of it. Very easy to follow and do little chunks at a time without feeling like you aren’t finished with a lesson or something. Great product!
