    Covenantal Catechism Book 5

    Covenantal Catechism helps parents raise children who need more Scriptural understanding of the Gospels so they can make a clear and complete biblical confession of faith and live it out. Book 5 is for beginners or ages 9-11 and surveys the book of the Acts of the Apostles. It contains lessons, reviews, memory work and songs, and Bible reading assignments. The Teacher's Handbook contains instructions for effective teaching of Book 5: Acts and an answer key.

    Catechism Means Question and Answer

    This package includes:

    After Jesus had led and taught the disciples three years, He posed this question to them, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

    Embedded in that short exchange is the essence of catechism and the essence of the covenant. Covenant is God revealing Himself and his people responding. This catechism curriculum then is built on that premise.

    Since God’s revelation of Himself is one of the words He expects His people to respond first of all with words. It is upon that "God speaking, people answering" dynamic that this covenantal catechism program is based.

    Teaching What God Says—The Bible

    The first part of a covenantal catechism program then will consist of teaching our children what God has said and is saying to them in His Word, the Bible. The series of books you see on this site is dedicated to assisting in filling that purpose—to reveal through the Bible the Word and works of our God. We may call this first part Scripture Catechism.

    Teaching What the Church Answers—The Confessions

    The second part of a covenantal catechism program will teach our children how they should answer our God; what confession of faith they should make. This normally takes form by teaching them the confessions of the church to which they belong. Although Line of Promise Press does not yet publish confessional catechetical material, much is available. You will find a page listing material available on this site. We call this second part Confessional Catechism.

    What Is Our Doctrinal Position? Reformed and Covenantal

    These books are Scripture Catechism, and express a standpoint that is both Reformed and covenantal.

    The teaching is Reformed.

    The books teach from a perspective reflecting the great Reformation confessions — the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. They belong to the heritage commonly known as “Reformed” to distinguish it from the Lutheran and Anabaptist streams of the Reformation.

    Our Scripture catechism books clearly follow the great Reformation themes of Scripture Alone, By Faith Alone, Through Grace Alone, By Christ Alone, and To God Alone Be the Glory.

    The teaching is clearly covenantal.

    • The books and lessons teach that the Bible is the one revelation of the Triune God. God’s revelation is one, His church is one—Old Testament and New Testament—His salvation is one, always and only through Jesus Christ, from Adam onward.
    • They teach that God, from Adam to the present, has included children in the unbelief, and also in the belief, of their parents. These books, therefore, teach that infants born to believers are, along with their parents, members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
    • They teach that as God establishes His covenant with children, He speaks to them through His Word, also by means of catechism instruction, and expects and requires an answer of faith from these children.
    • They teach that the children are a covenantal unity of prophet, priest, and king. This means that the children, as an image of God, have been equipped with intellect, emotion, and will. This catechetical instruction will seek to inform their intellect, their mind; to call for a response of faith and love from their heart, and finally to challenge them to choose, to act, to live, in obedience to God.

    John Owen commends catechism teaching by saying, "More knowledge is ordinarily diffused, especially among the young and ignorant, by one hour’s catechetical exercise, than by many hours continual discourse." You will find that all the great Reformers and church leaders of the 16th and 17th centuries—Calvin, Luther, Knox—called catechetical instruction essential.

      "What I like most is that it focuses on number sense, mental math and learning that there is often more than one way to approach a math problem. The table of contents and layout makes it very easy to skip around or find what topics that you want to teach. There are plenty of problems and while we only do about 1/3 of them until mastery is demonstrated, you could easily spiral back for review or do more problems when it was a difficult concept.." Jennifer.

      The Grammar of Spelling: Grade 5

      Don't just memorize spelling lists. Learn how to spell. 

      Many spelling programs overwhelm kids with a lot of spelling rules, which only pile up as the year goes on. This program, developed by veteran Logos teacher Matt Whitling, teaches and reviews five basic spelling rules, as well as more difficult spelling words called stumpers. The lists are cumulative, which allows students to review words throughout the year, and each lesson features dictation sentences that allow even more practice.

      Each lesson has the students write the list four times. Students repeat the words, put the words in alphabetical order, write the words from memory, and write them in cursive.

      This edition of Grammar of Spelling has the following all-new features:

      • brand-new formatting
      • lesson instructions for the teacher, with tips on how to teach the rule or sound pattern
      • 2 dictation sentences for every lesson
      • 5 extra words taken from the Logos Press homeschool bundle curriculum
      • point assignments for every dictation sentence and for all the tests

      The fifth grade Spelling level includes 49 lists. They cover the five spelling rules, prefixes & suffixes, geography words, and history words.

      The Grammar of Poetry

      Poetry is about much more than just coming up with rhymes at a moment's notice: poetry is a study of the craft of language.

      This is the ideal introductory course for students and teachers discovering the art of poetry. As a 'grammar,' it teaches the fundamentals of poetry from scansion and rhyme to more advanced concepts like spatial poetry and synecdoche. Using the classical methodology of imitation (advocated by educators like Quintilian and Benjamin Franklin), this text makes students become active participants as they learn the craft of writing poems. It also offers practical tips and helps, including how to use a rhyming dictionary, how great writers use figures of speech effectively, and even when to break the rules of poetry. Its goal is to show students how to capably interact not just with poems, but with language in any situation.

      Developed and used at Logos School with great success, the thirty lessons in Grammar of Poetry contain instruction on ten powerful tropes, student activities for every chapter, riddles to solve, a glossary of terms, a list of over 150 quality poems to integrate, and real-life examples from Shakespeare to traditional tongue twisters. It is designed for a semester at the 6-9th grade level, but is perfectly appropriate for anyone with basic writing skills and the desire to learn poetry.

      In the thirty lessons in the Grammar of Poetry DVD Course, Matt Whitling pulls from years of classroom experience as he works through all of these elements on screen.

      This package contains everything you would need to teach your student poetry: textbook, Matt Whitling explaining each lesson on DVD, and even all the answers to the exercises.

      This package contains the three items below at great value.

       Grammar of Poetry Student textbook, 174 pages, $22.00

       Grammar of Poetry Teacher's Edition, 196 pages, $24.00

      And it’s ready to teach right out of the box—no prep required!

      Trial and Triumph

      Introduce your children to their heroes in the Christian faith with this excellent Canon best-seller.

      Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections. Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure aliens instead of the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.

      In this collection of forty-six brief biographies for children, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith—including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and C.S. Lewis. Through them we can begin to enjoy the old paths and find rest for our souls. "Thus says the LORD: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls"(Jer. 6:16).

      Ancient History Facts

      Reinforce your student's memory of historical facts about Egypt, Sumer, Assyria, Babylon, Israel, Rome, and Greece.

      David Kohl has compiled ten facts for each civilization and explains how he uses them in his 5th grade class at Logos School. This sound-off method really works well in a class of several students. Young students love to recite and memorize!

      Country History Facts

      Equip your students to easily memorize five facts about each of 25 countries.

      Each student is given this entire book, but only memorizes a few countries themselves. After some time, however, students begin memorizing all of the facts as well. This sound-off method of learning facts is fun and challenging at the same time—a proven technique students love.

      State Facts

      An excellent method to memorize state facts at home or in the classroom. Program contains 5 facts for each state.
