CORE 1 BIBLE

Welcome to Love2Learn Core 1 Bible

Comprises:
3 books, 1 with a CD, + 1 Workbook
Engine Room (Full Year Lesson Plans) Included - Engine Room includes Art & Craft, Character Development, Scripture Memorisation, Narration, etc.

As part of goal to try and make our offering as affordable as possible, we have included an option whereby, when it comes to catering for additional children, you need order only the “Core 1 Bible & Character - Extra consumable workbooks for siblings”. You are thus able to significantly amortise your costs when using Love2Learn’s Curriculum, when homeschooling more than 1 child in a family or cottage school.

Core 1 Bible and Character can bridge a family with children from Grade 1 up to Grade 3; and consists of:

  • Daily Reading of God’s Word.
  • Daily Christian Character Training
  • Service in the Home.
  • Bible Teachings—Understanding God’s Word
  • Hands-on Bible Art, Crafts and Activities
  • Daily Prayer
  • Daily Praise/Worship
  • Daily Scripture Memorisation
  • Christian Hero Biographies (Found in Core 1 Literature)

Reading God's Word
Core 1 Bible includes a wonderful and beautifully illustrated volume including more than 200 treasured accounts from the Old and New Testaments. Skilful storytelling introduces our young children to the drama, mystery and wonder of God’s Word. Evocative and engaging retellings unfold the sweep of Bible history in words and phrases our children will understand and enjoy.

Accessible paraphrases of a selection of Prophecy, Psalms and Proverbs are included. The illustrations are full of texture and detail and evoke a sense of life in biblical times—this volume will be a delight to read and read again!

Christian Character
Designed to instill a foundation of good behaviour and positive interaction with their peers, based on God’s Word, this resource teaches our children about kindness, cheerfulness, forgiveness, obedience, friendship, courage, prayer and more! This colourful and fun resource includes an Audio Drama CD featuring six stories.

Service In The Home
This component is included in the Core 1 Bible Engine Room which accompanies this course.

For example you would be given a verse to introduce to your child:

“If you see your brother’s ox or sheep straying,
do not ignore it, but be sure to take it back to him.” Deut 22 : 1-4

Then you would be instructed to continue throughout the week our focus is on the Godly character trait of diligence towards others belongings.

Begin by discussing once again the scripture verse above and explain how God expects us to be diligent towards others belongings as well as our own. How often do our children walk past one another’s toys, clothes, shoes, without ever thinking to pick them up and return them to their siblings?

Each morning this week, assign a 10-minute task to your child that will afford them the opportunity to practice and develop this sort of diligence. For example:

Monday : Help your sister or brother hang up their clothes.
Tuesday : Walk around the garden and pick up one another’s toys.
Wednesday : Help your sister or brother to sharpen all their school pencils.
Thursday : Help your sister or brother tidy up their bedroom cupboards.

Spend this week developing this attitude of diligence and care for one another during service time.

Bible Teachings
This section of the course is intended to be a guide to you the parent to assist you in your desire to teach your children about God. There is nothing more important in the spiritual development of our children than quiet talks with Mom and Dad about our awesome God who made us and loves us passionately.

Each lesson begins with a wonderful story, followed by questions which act as further conversation starters and help your child to apply the teachings of the Bible to their world. Memory verses are included as are hymns to sing together. Prayer seals the seed that has been sown into your child’s heart. Covering aspects such as Looking for God, God is Very Great, All that God Does is Good, God’s Law, God Loves Us, What Jesus Did, About the Holy Spirit, How We Become Children of God, How God’s Children Live and Grow, God Helps His Children Live for Him, When we Pray to God, About God’s Church, Things that are to Happen.

The Core 1 Bible Engine Room
Every lesson of every day has been carefully planned for you in the Core 1 Bible Engine Room which is automatically included in this subject.

Bible Art And Craft
Each week a bible art or craft project is completed relating directly to the lesson topic at hand. The project is divided into five manageable 5—10 minute daily chunks… resulting in a complete project your children will be proud to display at the end of the week!

Daily Prayer
Although our children are little, they are still living stones in God’s church! And as part of His church they are encouraged to pray AND LISTEN to the Lord’s response! Prayer topics include needs within the immediate family, prayer for unsaved family and friends, prayer for our country and its leaders, prayer for missionaries and more!

Praise and Worship
Ranging from Bible action songs to vibrant praise to contemplative worship, we encourage you to expose your children to music as a means of worshipping our Lord. Love2Learn does not supply music CD’s as part of this component of Bible, as families tend to have their own favourite CD’s and familiar hymns, choruses and more.

Christian Biographies
Chronicles of the exciting, challenging and deeply touching true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary exploits for His kingdom and glory, neither you nor your children will want to put these books down! Please note that this item, although to be used as part of Core 1 Bible is actually found in Core 1 Literature.

THIS SUBJECT INCLUDES AN ENGINE ROOM.

CORE 1 BIOLOGY

Over the Core 1 Biology year, this subject uncovers a different animal group or habitat, and contains a wealth of questions that children love to ask. Packed full of fascinating facts, this bumper volume will delight with answers about insects, mammals, reptiles, fish and sharks, the seashore and the rainforest. Lively colourful design and amusing cartoons will help children understand the world’s animals and their habitats.

An introductory course in botany is also undertaken with a study of plants, trees, roots, stems, leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit, sea plants, germination, fungi, desert plants and more! Provides an excellent starting point for exploring botany.

Learning biology is a practical process and there is nothing better than getting out into nature to explore God’s creation! Charlotte Mason advocated nature walks and nature journaling and we begin right here, in Core 1 Biology!
Included in this course is a nature journal including fun activities and free flower pressing paper for nature lovers. Presented with a spiral binding, this work helps your children discover and explore various kinds of animals and plants. They can grow crazy cress heads from tiny seeds, make a creepy-crawly trap that's safe for insects, create a mini-garden in a bottle, and more! A world of fun in one subject!

All lessons are planned and scheduled for you in the Core 1 Biology Engine Room. Included are such features as read-aloud, hands-on activities for kinaesthetic learners, nature walks, narration, written activities, English copy-work based on scripture and more!

General comments on Love2Learn literature from Core 1 to Core 6:

A Great Books Education
Love2Learn is a classical curriculum implemented Charlotte Mason’s way. We strongly believe in a “Great Books” education. To this end, the literature prescribed from the early years through high school builds systematically towards this goal.

Any twaddle and spiritually offensive literature is excluded from our selection. Your family will truly end up with an heirloom library! We trust our Literature programme will help your child develop a love for reading and a love for books.

Take a journey to forgotten lands
Over the various Cores your child will get to live through the bombing of London in the Second World War, experience life as a homeless person living under a bridge, sail the seas with Columbus, discover wonderful cures for disease with Jenner, face the dangers of sharing the gospel with a tribe lost in witchcraft, cross icy landscapes in the race to the pole!

Award-winning Literature
Love2Learn offers an extensive selection of award-winning books.

Live the History
There is no better way to learn history than to “live it”, and one of the most accessible ways to achieve this in a home-schooling context is through the medium of engaging, humorous, entertaining, suspense-filled historical literature.

Biographies
Biographies of Christian heroes, famous people and scientists, old as well as modern classics, Shakespeare, Dickens, and just simply well-written fiction round off the programme.

Classics
Exposing our children to the very best writers of our times impacts their command of English at a number of levels. Firstly vocabulary is enriched and expanded. Secondly, they learn to intuit the laws of grammar and spelling very naturally, while they are entertained and engrossed in an “un-put-downable” book. Children are exposed to a number of life situations through good literature. These encourage discussion within the context of a Christian worldview.

CORE 1 GEOGRAPHY

This introductory course is an ideal beginning to physical geography and provides excellent, accessible information on all major topics from space, the solar system, seasons, weather, seas, oceans, rocks, fossils and ecosystems. Eye-catching photographs, detailed illustrations and straightforward text will encourage our young Core 1 Geography students to find out more about the world around them.

CORE 1 HISTORY

This year offers a wonderful, vibrant introduction to World History for the young child. Beginning with the building of the first city and ending with of World War II this overview helps to put the major events in world history in time and geographical perspective.

Packed with fun and memorable hands-on activities, beautifully illustrated, full colour living books, simple text, stunning photographs, detailed illustrations, geography map-work (so that our children know where history took place), history timelines (so that they know when events took place relative to their own birthdays!), internet activities and virtual tours, narration, written activities, critical thinking activities and more! Child friendly, informative style, guaranteed to arouse their curiosity and jam packed with interesting facts!

At Love2Learn we study history chronologically as one continuous unfolding account, rather than teaching unrelated snippets of history in no particular sequence.

To find out more about Love2Learn’s approach to History over the various CORE levels - follow this link to our FAQ Click herehttp://www.love2learn.co.za/faq-category/subjects?page=1

We endeavour to help you to put Charlotte Mason’s principles into practice, particularly that Education is the Science of Relations. In other words, if history is not vibrant and alive to our children they will not establish a relationship with the material, and they will consequently not remember what they have studied. Can you remember ten points on the Treaty of Versailles? If not, why not? Probably because it was taught out of context, and was never made to come alive! If you cannot remember it, you certainly didn't develop a relationship with the material!

Our desire is to make history such an exciting, entertaining and real adventure that your child simply cannot wait for the next lesson! (And for all those parents out there who developed an intense dislike of history at school, this is your second chance to fall in love with a wonderful subject and receive the education you wish you’d had!)

All the lesson plans are worked out for you in the Engine Room. Simply sit down with your children and join the fun of this adventure!

Core 0 - 1 Junior Atlas Kit

Made up of two resources:
The first resource is a friendly introduction to places and people around the world. Every continent has its own section including political and thematic maps, facts and figures to compare, beautiful photographs illustrating landscape features and aspects of everyday life. There is also a useful introduction to mapping and a section on world flags.

The second atlas, although slightly more advanced, is still very accessible. It teaches children how to use maps including map symbols, scale, direction, longitude and latitude. Thematic maps and charts, diagrams and large scale regional maps cover the British Isles. Thematic maps, charts, political maps and more offer an introduction to the World while physical maps of each continent introduce children to the geographical features of each continent.

This kit is offered from Core 0 through to Core 1. It is sufficiently advanced to even be used in Core 2 as well.

General comments on Love2Learn Literature from Core 2 to Core 6:

A Great Books Education
Love2Learn is a classical curriculum implemented Charlotte Mason’s way. We strongly believe in a “Great Books” education. To this end, the literature prescribed from the early years through high school builds systematically towards this goal.

Any twaddle and spiritually offensive literature is excluded from our selection. Your family will truly end up with an heirloom library! We trust our Literature programme will help your child develop a love for reading and a love for books.

Take a journey to forgotten lands
Over the various Cores your child will get to live through the bombing of London in the Second World War, experience life as a homeless person living under a bridge, sail the seas with Columbus, discover wonderful cures for disease with Jenner, face the dangers of sharing the gospel with a tribe lost in witchcraft, cross icy landscapes in the race to the pole!

Award-winning Literature

Live the History

Biographies
Biographies of Christian heroes, famous people and scientists, old as well as modern classics, Shakespeare, Dickens, and just simply well-written fiction round off the programme.

Classics
Exposing our children to the very best writers of our times impacts their command of English at a number of levels. Firstly vocabulary is enriched and expanded. Secondly, they learn to intuit the laws of grammar and spelling very naturally, while they are entertained and engrossed in an “un-put-downable” book. Children are exposed to a number of life situations through good literature. These encourage discussion within the context of a Christian world view.
