Dynamic Christian Living from Positive Action Bible Curriculum ~ a TOS review

Disclaimer: I received a Complimentary copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Regulations. 

 Morning friends! Another week has passed and we are closer and closer to the end of our school year. Today happens to be my birthday and I am excited to share with you the Good News found within the Dynamic Christian Living course from Positive Action Bible Curriculum. Positive Action Bible Curriculum
As a Christian parent the greatest thing I can give my children is a firm foundation in faith and a love of Christ. There are so many distractions out in the world and its easy to get distracted. Over the course of our homeschooling years, we have been blessed to use many of the products from Positive Action Bible Curriculum. This course, like their other courses does not disappoint, let me tell you more about it. 
If you are new to homeschooling you may be wondering who is Positive Action for Christ? They are a Christian publishing company that started way back in 1969, specializing in educational material for students from Kindergarten to High School. Their “mission is to equip Bible teachers to magnify the majesty of God” by seeking His glory and grace in all things. 
Since we have had success with this program before, you can be sure that I jumped at the chance to review the Dynamic Christian Living course, which is recommended for 7th-9th graders, with McKenzie (12) who will be in 7th grade come August when we start our new year.

We received the softbound 7”x 9” Student Manual and 3-ring binder that contains the Teacher’s Manual. Both are also available in digital PDF files if you like that option. 
 Student workbook {$19.95} includes:

 ~ student exercise that challenge the student to explore God’s Word 
~ Lesson notes that include fill-in-the-blank questions 
 ~ Engaging design with original black and white artwork 
 Teacher’s Manual {$49.95} includes:

 ~ 35 lessons for each average school year 
 ~Weekly schedule that includes outlines for a three-, four-, or five-day school week 
 ~ Target truths that cover the core learning objectives 
 ~ Teaching strategies include notes on presenting the lesson effectively 
 ~ Scripture memory plan for option memorization 
 ~ Testing and evaluation include weekly quizzes if you want to test. Answer keys are provided
 ~ Student manual pages that are exact copies of the student pages with answers filled in 
The Student Manual is a consumable workbook so each of your students will need their own copy. In addition, they will also need a personal Bible so they can look up the relevant scripture needed to answer the questions. Over the last six weeks McKenzie and I have been plugging away with this course in addition to our current Bible curriculum. We have been following the 3-day schedule and been working in it on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays. In our homeschool Bible is the first subject to be completed. I love how it sets the tone for our day.

During our Bible time, my daughter and I have been plugging through Unit One of this curriculum. There are 35 lessons spread out over 5 units that include study on: 

• Unit 1: Birth 
 • Unit 2: Growth 
 • Unit 3: Breath 
 • Unit 4: Communication 
 • Unit 5: Behavior 
We have just four weeks left of our regular school year before we break for summer. My plan is to finish out Unit One and Lesson 4 next week. We will then take a break for the summer before jumping back into the curriculum in August when our school year begins again. At that time, we will use the program following the 4-day schedule which will work with McKenzie’s gymnastics training schedule.
I really like that this curriculum is teaching McKenzie and I to live out our love for God. When people see us, I want them to see Christ through us. Overall, I am once again super impressed with this Bible curriculum, it has made a fantastic addition to our daily Bible study. If you are looking for a homeschool Bible curriculum for your middle school student, I highly recommend you check out Dynamic Christian Living from Positive Action Bible Curriculum.
