Teaching a Biblical WorldView with Apologia and VeggieTales
Yesterday, Jenny starting working through her Who is God? book and notebooking journal from Apologia. As she was working through the comprehension questions in her journal, David came in the room and overheard her verbalizing her answers before writing them down.
She was on lesson one in the book which is all about building our lives on the firm foundation of God and His Word.
David immediately related what she was learning in her Apologia worldview curriculum with the VeggieTales’ DVD, The Little House That Stood [read my review here]. It took me for a surprise that 1) he was listening to what she was saying (he had just woken up and was still quite groggy), and 2) that he made the connection between the two almost instantly.
Once I confirmed that the VeggieTales’ DVD was indeed teaching the same concept of building a solid foundation for life based on God and His Word, the kids were quick to ask if they could watch it when Jenny was done with her schoolwork.
How could I refuse?!?
I just LOVE it when our favorite resources for teaching biblical worldview overlap in such a way as to support the concepts the kids are learning from one resource with another. AND, the fact that it was the kids who made the connection gets me even more excited, because it reflects that they’re seeing past the entertainment value of the resources and the biblical truths are sinking in!
If you’re looking for quality resources to teach your children a biblical worldview (and I HIGHLY suggest that you do, whether you homeschool or not!), be sure to check out the worldview resources from Apologia and grab a few VeggieTales DVDs!
