Engaging Bible stories... fun activities... memory verses... these are components found in most Christian Kindergarten curricula today. They are a vital part of DiscipleLand, too.
So what makes DiscipleLand Kindergarten different? Why is DiscipleLand distinct from other curriculum choices? DiscipleLand resources are indeed fundamentally different.
Is "Undated" and Translation-independent DiscipleLand Kindergarten gives you maximum flexibility and adapts to your ministry setting.
DiscipleLand Kindergarten is "undated." Start using it at any time—in a variety of ministry settings. You can select particular Bible passages to study (4 quarters in all), or you can lead children through a one-year overview of the entire Bible!
DiscipleLand Kindergarten is "translation-independent." Kids and teachers will be comfortable using their preferred English-language Bible translation. Carefully crafted Bible summaries maximize the kindergarteners' understanding of a passage.
Builds Disciples DiscipleLand was created to make disciples. It is based on a children's discipleship system that helps kids reach their full potential as disciples of Jesus Christ. DiscipleLand Kindergarten introduces Bible heroes in a way that will help kids the rest of their lives. Along the way they'll discover Jesus as the greatest hero of all!
Teaches More Bible DiscipleLand Kindergarten covers the Bible like no other curriculum. Other children's curricula contain a serious "overlap" problem—some stories are repeated over and over. DiscipleLand Kindergarten offers solid, content-based Bible lessons—with no repeats! Every lesson introduces a new Bible character and story—48 in all!
Saves Money DiscipleLand is the best curriculum value available! Each year, the lessons remain the same. Purchase Teacher Guides and Teaching Pictures once and re-use them year-after-year. Simply replenish the Student Pages as needed and save extra for use in future years. No need to throw anything away!
Lays a Solid Theological Foundation DiscipleLand comes from Through the Bible Publishers, an established evangelical publishing company that is not affiliated with a denomination. We are sensitive to the doctrinal differences among Christians, so we focus on the core teachings of our Christian faith. Our curriculum appeals to a wide spectrum of churches and schools. For additional information, please see the "We Believe" statement on our website and in our Teacher Guides.
Engages Kids' Interest DiscipleLand Kindergarten also features three special children—Dee, Cy, and Paul—who serve as role-model characters in every lesson. Dee is a Caucasian girl; Cy is Asian; Paul is African-American. Put their names together and you have Dee-Cy-Paul (disciple). The little dog that accompanies them is named Chip (DEE-CY-PAUL-CHIP = discipleship). DiscipleLand's multi-cultural emphasis is deliberate. Children learn that Jesus loves and saves children all over the world, from every race and nation.
Applies Bible Truths Every DiscipleLand Kindergarten lesson includes a modern-day application story featuring Dee, Cy, Paul, and Chip. These stories put the Bible truths in terms that kindergarteners can relate to, furthering their grasp on biblical principles. Every story is also presented as an exciting and fun puppet script—engaging kindergartners at a whole new level!
