Homeschool Review - Bible Class

Many of you know I home school! I have a 4th grader, 2nd/3rd grader, and a kindergartner. ( I also have an almost 3 yr old).
I thought, as school winds down and I think of curriculum for next year, it would be fun to share what we use for each of our school subjects.
My first subject to review is Bible Class.
I use...

Bible Study for all ages is a great program! I love that it has different student books for different aged kids. There is a book for 3yr- K, 1st-3rd, 4th-6th. I use these more like k-2nd, 3rd-4th, and 5th-6th. You can use them for whatever ages works for you! All of the books are working on the same story even tho they are made for different levels. So you can teach all the kids in your home school at the same time and they can all understand.
You will need a student booklet for each student unless you want them to share, which I think is very possible and I may do that next year to cut a little cost. Each student booklet costs $6.95 but only covers 26 lessons. So for Teachers Guide 1 (lessons 1-104) there are 4 student booklets.
You will also need to purchase a Teacher's Guide. There are 4 guides total. In each guide is 104 lessons. You can go through them at your own pace. I think each guide is $29.95. I have only bought one and it will last 2 years.
The teachers Guide has everything done for you- there is no planning you have to do. First you read a chapter or 2 from the Bible. Then there are questions in the teachers guide to answer together. Then they do their booklets to review the story again. They also learn books of the Bible and many other things along with the stories.
I know you can find ways to teach Bible class a lot cheaper, but I don't find the time to make up my own lessons. This program works really good for us and I feel that my kids, along with me, are really starting to learn our Bibles, and that's very important to us!
I'm curious, do you home school? And if so what do you use for Bible class? Do you make up your own Bible curriculum?

I'd love to hear from you. Just leave me a comment!

This sounds like a great curriculum.

We don't use an actual Bible curriculum in our homeschool. Most of what we use is already written from a Christian world view so we get "Bible" in pretty much every (except Math) core subject.

We use Sonlight's Bible curriculum. This year it was reading several books of the bible and Leading Little ones to God. I also have Bible Study Guide for all Ages...I was going to use it a few days a week this year but didn't get to it. Maybe next year!
