I made my 7-year-old a new bookmark schedule for her study of the LDS New Testament Stories.
She finished the Book of Mormon Scripture Stories
reader, so it’s time to move on. Because the stories are narrated on DVD, I decided to let her listen and
read along with each story on my iPhone. Since this is her personal scripture study, I knew if she heard the narration, she would also learn how to correctly pronounce words she was unfamiliar with. Obviously if you have a younger child, you could read to them, but I really want her to become an independent reader.
She still has room in her last journal to answer the questions on the bookmark. Each one correlates with a chapter of the LDS New Testament Scripture Stories. And there is a check-off square next to the chapter or video when she completes it.
I say video because I added the New Testament Living Scripture videos to the schedule as well. So she can read, see, and write about the New Testament. I didn’t add additional scriptures for her to look up this time, because there were so many videos she could watch.
This new generation of children has modern technologies which can assist them in their study of the Gospel. When my daughter was studying the Book of Mormon, we also watched “The Testaments: Of One Fold and One Shepherd” together and it was a wonderful experience.
I adapted this idea from a post at Latter-day Homeschooling. Even if you don’t home-school, this website is a great resource.
