I'd like to hear from anyone that uses the King James Bible (only) to teach grammar, spelling, writing, science, history, etc. to their children.
How do you do it - did you make lesson "plans" ahead of time or did you do it day by day? No need to reply with negatives as we have already decided to homeschool this way. Just wanted to hear from people that are currently doing this or have done this in the past.

Hi Kat,
I am wondering if you are also using a Christian homeschool curriculum in addition to using King James version bible to teach your kids. To be honest, i am not using KJV myself and am impressed that you plan to do so (if my assumption is correct), cos i find it difficult for me to do it. I am using mostly NIV and only to tell my kids the bible stories. At present, i am only using the sunday school materials plus some bible CDs from TimeLife.

I *think* the op was meaning to use ONLY the KJV Bible to teach all subjects. No curricula. I've heard of that. I'm not sure HOW it works.

I don't use it exclusively for my curriculum but we do use it exclusively in our house and for our lessons. I am not sure how it would work with no other curriculum though. Please let me know how it goes. I have never heard of this and am curious how it is done. Personally I would need some kind of curriculum to make sure I have hit all the fine points.

Question...How will you go about teaching things like biology or chemistry? I am not trying to discourage you! This is a serious question; I am just curious since I have never heard of this before.

Good Luck!

I too am quite curious on how it works. I hope you'll log in again to explain Smile

Since there were several questions about my initial post, I thought I'd better reply. After MUCH prayer, the Lord led us to use Bedell Curriculum. Even though it is called a "curriculum", it is very (King James)Bible centered and we use our own Bibles. Mr. Bedell's thinking is that every subject should be centered on the Bible. It is a chronological study of the Bible and how the Bible relates to the sciences, world history/geography, apologetics, psychology, etc. The Bible is the main textbook (which is what we wanted in the first place), and for older children, they would also use other resources to do research. We do not want our homeschool to be all academics, but first and foremost, about our children having a solid knowledge of the Scriptures and a real, saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. I used to have a curriculum that was very academically oriented, very advanced. I found myself pushing my children to go, go, go, get the material done...so that we could maintain the "schedule." I also realized that there wasn't enough Bible in our previous curriculum and that it was mostly about academics. The material in one day's lesson was just too much, causing some stress. The Lord began to show us that even though we have homeschooled our children from day one, we had basically brought the traditional, public school into our home(because that is the way we grew up.)
So, when I said earlier that we wanted to homeschool with the King James Bible, we are still doing this, but using Mr. Bedell's "curriculum" as a guide.
If you have any other questions, I'd be glad to help. May God richly bless your homeschool this year. I believe to be a homeschooling mother is one of the highest callings the Lord could give us Smile
In Christ Jesus,
Kat

Thank you so much for sharing this! I have looked at S.O.W. (Student of the Word) and the Heart of Wisdom curriculum (this last one does not start until 4th grade and the curriculum has not been finished - although they give you TONS of resources to help you finish on your own). My main desire in homeschooing is to have the Word be our main focus, not at the cost of academics but rather as the basis for our academics. I have not heard of this one and will be adding it to my list! Please respond back with how it is working, what you like, don't like, etc.

We have used the King James for copy work. That then leads naturally to vocabulary work on unfamiliar words.
