Welcome to Bible Based Homeschooling {on a budget}

It’s here! The day I’ve been looking forward to!

Welcome to Bible Based Homeschooling {on a budget}

In the summer of 2012 I had the conviction to begin using the Bible as our main textbook in our homeschool. After spending many hours of prayer and research, I took a leap of faith and began our new school year steeped in God’s Word. We have been abundatly blessed by choosing to homeschool in this manner. Everything we do changes when we have the Word of God as our main focus.

At the same time we were facing a job loss and knew that we wouldn’t have tons of money to spend on resources. Thankfully in the world we live in these days, we have access to so many valuable budget friendly resources. I have found many ways to study the Bible and combine that with great supplements, all for very little cost.

In a day and age where homeschoolers can quickly lose sight of their goals, and the pressure to deliver high academics is abound, God sometimes loses His central place in our homeschool. It is my vision to use this site as a place where I can share great {budget friendly} resources, ideas on how to use the Bible as your foundation in homeschool, and to advertise deals that are helpful for a family looking to homeschool this way. In addition, I want to have a place where YOU the reader can share what your are doing. The community page is coming soon just for YOU.

So take a look around, discover the abundance of resources out there, and learn all the ways we can keep God at the center of our homeschools. If you have a resource or an idea to share please email me at karen@biblebasedhomeschooling.com

Preschooling with Bible as Your Main Text

Incorporating my preschooler into our studies this fall has been loads of fun! We are using the Bible as our main textbook, and are currently studying the book of Genesis.  I have found so many amazing resources to help him jump right in and be a part of our learning each day.

Some things he has done or is doing with us:

  • Made  a minbook for Noah’s ark using this printable 
  • Learned about animal classification

 Playing a game using mega blocks to sort by color to explain classification

Sorting games with beans for more classification learning

 

 

  • We are using these fabulous letter coloring pages
  • We also use flash cards to jump to the letters I call out (sort of like Hullabaloo with our own twist!)

 

  • We’ve made a mini book about the days of Creation
  • Colored rainbow pictures when we talked about the Flood and God’s promise
  • The preschooler has joined in all of our video watching and read alouds
  • His older siblings read books to him about Adam and Eve, Creation, and Noah’s Ark
  • We’ve been reading lots of books about dinosaurs
  • Made a family tree when we learned about the family line from Adam to Noah

It’s been really rather simple and natural to include activities for all different age groups while studying Genesis. The preschooler has fit right in and I’m excited to have us all digging into the Bible together.
