Christmas Scripture Booklets

Christmas Scripture Booklets

Are you looking for a way for your younger children to interact more with Scripture as you read the Biblical accounts of Jesus’ coming to earth as a baby?   Try Christmas Scripture Booklets for coloring and Christmas Story Sequencing for retelling

Last year, we used The Christmas Story Booklet based on Luke 2 to assist our 4 year old in memorizing a portion of Luke 2:1-20.  This year, he is continuing to make progress with this passage. 

Luke_2_Booklet

Now, there are 3 additional Christmas Scripture Booklets!  We are not planning on memorizing these passages at this time, but desire to read them during this Christmas season.  Here is a suggested reading order so that the events are read chronologically.  (I used the exact Scripture for each booklet.)

Jesus’ Birth Foretold (Portions of Luke 1 and Matthew 1)
The Christmas Story (Luke 2) 
The Naming of Jesus (Luke 2, continued)
In God’s Hand (Matthew 2)

 

Make sure to print out the Christmas Story Sequencing Sheets as well!

The Christmas Story Sequencing Sheets correspond with the Scripture passages from the Christmas Story Booklets.  These are great for reviewing and retelling the Biblical accounts!  Color versions of the pictures would work well in a pocket chart.  In addition, black and white student sheets are included for individual work.

These printables are available over at the Hubbard’s Cupboard Christmas page.

May these FREE resources from Hubbard’s Cupboard bless you and your children this Christmas as you read from His Word and learn more about Jesus and His coming as the Savior.

Giving Tuesday – Booklets for Bibles

           Seasonal Jokes Cover Names of Jesus Cover

A couple weeks ago, our oldest girls came to us desiring to do some type of work to raise money for a charity during this Christmas season.  After ruling out a few ideas, what should they finally choose?  Well, it is often said that our children are always watching us and will model what we do.  So, following in the footsteps of their mama, they decided to create Christmas related materials for parents and teachers. =)

Booklets for Bibles

Please assist us in raising money to help print Bibles through Wycliffe for the Mayogo people in their heart language. They live in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Our goal is to raise $120 by selling Countdown to Christmas Math Puzzles: Names of Jesus  and  Countdown to Christmas Math Puzzles: Seasonal Jokes.  This amount will allow for 20 New Testaments to be printed for the Mayogo people.

These booklets have 24 different puzzles with math problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) to figure out either a name of Jesus as found in Scripture or the answer to a fun seasonal joke. They were designed with 3rd-4th graders in mind.

~The Hubbard girls

The girls have been working hard to have these materials ready for December 1st so that you, dear teachers and moms, can have them for use with your children.

Booklet Making
Won’t you, please support them in reaching their goal?

The booklets are available for purchase at our Joyful Heart Learning shop at Teacher’s Notebook for just $3.00 each.  All proceeds from either of these products will go toward the girls’ goal to give Bibles to the Mayogo people.

Psalm 103 – Overflowing With Praise

img_6337

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion…

I’ve always been drawn to this Psalm, but today, as I spoke the words aloud, tears began to well up in my eyes.  A sense of amazement –  at how loving, compassionate, and gracious my Lord is  – overtook me.  I was crying tears of joy at how wonderfully merciful our God is!

I am so appreciative of friends who challenge me to memorize longer passages of Scripture, who are great role models in persistence as they set to the hard task themselves, and who walk alongside me and keep me accountable.  I’m also thankful for the sweet little ones in our own home who, likewise, are excellent examples for me as they are diligent to learn the Word through AWANA each week – and who show interest, patience, and excitement as they listen to me practice and recite aloud to them!

IMG_6333 As a family, we’ve memorized a few passages of varying lengths at different times over the years and it has always been such a blessing.  We need to continue to do the hard, but joyous task of memorizing His Word.

There are so many benefits to memorizing longer passages of Scripture.  Here are just three quick reasons to encourage us in our memorizing of entire Scripture passages…

  1. Understanding
    As we memorize, it is inevitable that we begin to let the words (God’s Holy Word) wash over us.  As we meditate and reflect on the meaning of what we are memorizing, it makes God’s Word come alive and we gain a deeper understanding.
  2. Transformation
    As we work on memorizing sections, it fills our hearts and minds with His Word.  God’s Word renews and transforms our minds.
  3. Praise
    Memorizing and meditating on God’s Word causes us to well up with springs of overflowing thankfulness, praise, and gratitude to our great God!

Time spent in God’s Word, striving to memorize and hide His Word in our hearts, is never wasted.  Memorizing and meditating is a rich endeavor that only results in GOOD.

Would you like to join me in memorizing and meditating on Psalm 103?  It is an excellent passage to cultivate a heart of gratitude to our merciful Savior as we come upon the holidays!

Below is a link to a free printable booklet with cut apart Scripture cards (to take with you), a full passage sheet to post (maybe near your kitchen sink, shower, or mirror), and a few pages of spaces to handwrite the verses, write prayers of thanks, and place checkmarks as you memorize each verse.

May you be blessed in whatever Scripture passage you choose to undertake!

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.  (Colossians 3:16)
