Resources for Bible and Character Studies.
GrapeVine Studies: Esther, Gr. K-3
The unique method of introducing CORE Bible knowledge with the use of colored line drawings makes GrapeVine Studies easy-to-use for both teachers and students of all ages. Each series is divided into weeklong units or sections of the story. Day 1 of each unit begins with the introduction of a memory verse and a broad look at the Bible book and/or Biblical event in focus. A simple time line using chronological order, color-coded stick figures and symbols, and short 2-3 word phrases is constructed by the teacher. Students are encouraged to replicate this timeline on a reproducible worksheet. This helps to establish a general framework of the entire story. Read more here.
