In past years, I've approached Bible study with Lauren by reading Bible stories and then answering discussion questions. It worked somewhat, but Lauren never seemed very interested in discussing what we read. As I looked around at Lauren's other schoolwork, I noticed that she does well with workbook-style curriculum choices. She likes to see that there is a clear ending point to each assignment. I also think that she sees my thoughts during a discussion as just extra fluff. If, however, I find a published curriculum that has the same thoughts as I'd like to teach, she's very willing to learn from those materials.
I have struggled to find a Bible curriculum that met my high standards for Biblical instruction and also fit well with Lauren's independent learning style. Kid Niche Christian Books has a Bible and Prayer curriculum that fits both of us perfectly. Weave Your Word in Me -- Part 1 has thirty-six lessons that "help young people discover the great God-truths Jesus has woven within the Lord's Prayer." Lauren can work through the materials independently, and I can see that she's building strong Bible study habits.
