I'm hoping, this week, to be crafting through the "Holy Week" with the younger children. First though, I want to make sure they have the order of events clear in their minds.
So, today I have Joanne Larrison's The Week That Led to Easter, to read to them. It's another Arch Book (Amazon is running a buy-3-get-1-free on them, and I couldn't resist filling in our library a little).
This one summarizes the events from Matthew 21:1 - 28:10, Mark 11:1-16:8, Luke 19:29-24:12, and John 12:12-20:10, in an easy rhyming text, at about a third grade reading level, for children ages 5-9.
To go along with the story, I scanned some of the illustrations from the book, so I could trim and print them, as 3.5"x 5" cards ("laminated" with contact paper), for the children to put in order after we read the story, and in a thumbprint size, to glue right to our calendar, in timeline fashion.
If you want to do something similar, but without all the fuss of scanning and printing images, BibleStoryPrintables.com has a set of images depicting the events of Easter week, free and ready for printing.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
