    Covenantal Catechism Book 3

    Covenantal Catechism helps parents raise children who need more Scriptural understanding of 1 Kings to to Malachi so they can make a clear and complete biblical confession of faith and live it out. Book 3 is for beginners or ages 7-8. Book 3 surveys 1 Kings to Malachi and contains lessons, reviews, memory work and songs, and Bible reading assignments. The Teacher's Handbook contains instructions for effective teaching of Book 3: Genesis to Malachi and an answer key.

    Catechism Means Question and Answer

    This package includes:

    After Jesus had led and taught the disciples three years, He posed this question to them, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

    Embedded in that short exchange is the essence of catechism and the essence of the covenant. Covenant is God revealing Himself and his people responding. This catechism curriculum then is built on that premise.

    Since God’s revelation of Himself is one of the words He expects His people to respond first of all with words. It is upon that "God speaking, people answering" dynamic that this covenantal catechism program is based.

    Teaching What God Says—The Bible

    The first part of a covenantal catechism program then will consist of teaching our children what God has said and is saying to them in His Word, the Bible. The series of books you see on this site is dedicated to assisting in filling that purpose—to reveal through the Bible the Word and works of our God. We may call this first part Scripture Catechism.

    Teaching What the Church Answers—The Confessions

    The second part of a covenantal catechism program will teach our children how they should answer our God; what confession of faith they should make. This normally takes form by teaching them the confessions of the church to which they belong. Although Line of Promise Press does not yet publish confessional catechetical material, much is available. You will find a page listing material available on this site. We call this second part Confessional Catechism.

    What Is Our Doctrinal Position? Reformed and Covenantal

    These books are Scripture Catechism, and express a standpoint that is both Reformed and covenantal.

    The teaching is Reformed.

    The books teach from a perspective reflecting the great Reformation confessions — the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. They belong to the heritage commonly known as “Reformed” to distinguish it from the Lutheran and Anabaptist streams of the Reformation.

    Our Scripture catechism books clearly follow the great Reformation themes of Scripture Alone, By Faith Alone, Through Grace Alone, By Christ Alone, and To God Alone Be the Glory.

    The teaching is clearly covenantal.

    • The books and lessons teach that the Bible is the one revelation of the Triune God. God’s revelation is one, His church is one—Old Testament and New Testament—His salvation is one, always and only through Jesus Christ, from Adam onward.
    • They teach that God, from Adam to the present, has included children in the unbelief, and also in the belief, of their parents. These books, therefore, teach that infants born to believers are, along with their parents, members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
    • They teach that as God establishes His covenant with children, He speaks to them through His Word, also by means of catechism instruction, and expects and requires an answer of faith from these children.
    • They teach that the children are a covenantal unity of prophet, priest, and king. This means that the children, as an image of God, have been equipped with intellect, emotion, and will. This catechetical instruction will seek to inform their intellect, their mind; to call for a response of faith and love from their heart, and finally to challenge them to choose, to act, to live, in obedience to God.

    John Owen commends catechism teaching by saying, "More knowledge is ordinarily diffused, especially among the young and ignorant, by one hour’s catechetical exercise, than by many hours continual discourse." You will find that all the great Reformers and church leaders of the 16th and 17th centuries—Calvin, Luther, Knox—called catechetical instruction essential.

    Math Mammoth is one of Cathy Duffy's Top Picks for homeschool curriculum. Cathy says, "Math Mammoth is an amazingly well-developed program for such a reasonable price." We couldn't agree more! 


    "What I like most is that it focuses on number sense, mental math and learning that there is often more than one way to approach a math problem. The table of contents and layout makes it very easy to skip around or find what topics that you want to teach. There are plenty of problems and while we only do about 1/3 of them until mastery is demonstrated, you could easily spiral back for review or do more problems when it was a difficult concept.." Jennifer.

    The Grammar of Spelling: Grade 3

    Don't just memorize spelling lists. Learn how to spell. 

    This great spelling program emphasizes hearing the parts of each new word.

    Too many spelling textbooks are reading-spelling programs that make you memorize fifty or more phoneme/grapheme relationships in isolation. Instead, Grammar of Spelling is a program that teaches the most important spelling rules based on useful spelling lists and simple, effective exercises. Its strengths are in its cumulative spelling lists and dictation sentences. When a young student learns to hear each part of a basic root word, spelling becomes a simple matter of using the building blocks of reading and phonics.

    The Grammar of Spelling program, now in its 3rd edition, has been taught in Grades 2-6 for more than twenty years at Logos School, the flagship classical Christian school. Written by veteran teachers Matt Whitling and B.J. Loyd, the simple worksheets that accompany each lesson are effective exercises in rewriting the spelling words for quick retention: Repeat & Write, Alphabetize in Print or Cursive, Flip & Write, and CAPITAL PRINT. These, combined with each week's spelling text, make it very clear when your student has mastered the list and can move on. Give your student the tools to spell correctly!

    This edition of Grammar of Spelling has the following all-new features:

    • lesson instructions for the teacher, with tips on how to teach the rule or sound pattern
    • 2 dictation sentences for every lesson
    • point assignments for every dictation sentence and for all the tests

    The third grade Spelling level includes 34 lists. They cover days of the week, months of the year, diphthongs, homophones, states of the US, compound words, number words, and five spelling rules.
