Does it seem impossible to find the best religious education resource to use with your child(ren)? There are so many options out there, it is hard to know which way to go. Before you begin to choose your resources, I think you first have to think about a few things.
For example, how do you like to teach? Do you like the workbook approach or do you prefer something more flexible such as unit studies?
If you prefer workbooks, then there
are any number of series' that you can use to provide your children with
an excellent religious education. Check out any of the main providers (Seton, Mother of Divine Grace, Catholic Heritage Curriculum) and you'll see they have a lot of resources to choose from.
If you prefer more flexibility, then using a variety of books, for example fiction and non-fiction books and Saint stories, and doing unit studies might be a good answer for you.
I firmly believe that no matter which method you choose, the most important thing that you can do is to put your faith into action!
If you live out your faith on a daily basis and participate in events that bring their book lessons to life, then your kids will have a solid faith that will, hopefully, last them a lifetime.
I've broken down this section on teaching religion into three separate areas. Feel free to explore whichever ones fit your situation.
If you are looking for grade school resources this would be the place to go.
A great resource to add to your homeschool library would be the 2 CD set of The King of the Golden City, a book written by Mother Mary Loyola in 1925 and recorded by Simonetta. For more information on this great resource, and to purchase it, check out this page.
I decided to break out sacrament preparation and dedicate a page just to that since it is so important.
If you're looking for high school resources, then head on over to my high school section and check out my favorite curriculum for that age group.
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I appreciate any purchases you make of materials on my site as it helps to support this website and our large, homeschooling family. God Bless.
