Using these worksheets will help your child (and you) extract pertinent materials from the Bible reading, analyze it, categorize it, and produce a reference sheet for his or her Bible portfolio. This is not busywork- its writing to learn.
These can be used for all ages even non readers! Mom can fill in the pages for younger students using Charlotte Mason narration principles (child tells mom what happened, mom fills in worksheet). You need the free Acrobat Reader to open them.

Do not give them a worksheet and walk away. Motivate students by asking questions. Help them use Bible study tools if needed.
Allow students more than one worksheet, tell them to plan on writing and rewriting information so that they can condense, arrange, and write the summary in the best fashion.
As they rewrite and reread, they select, eliminate, and add information with your prompts. The student is conveying in his own words (paraphrasing) the meaning of what was read, using the fewest number of words and sentences.
Don’t underestimate the filling in process. Students develop excellence in achievement by completing the worksheets ; they develop diligence by continually practicing clarity, accuracy, relevance, prioritizing, consistency, depth, and breadth through writing activities.
Use the worksheets as a way of testing. You will find out what students already know and encourage them to learn.
