Home Study Students

  1. When starting to work on the Religion curriculum with your child, spend some time in prayer before thanking God for the many blessings in your lives and to be open to whatever God is saying to you today. Spending some time in prayer helps us to focus our intentions on listening to the Will of God.
  2. Go through the chapter guiding your child but letting them come up with their own responses & reflections (that’s how we grow in our faith!).
  3. Go to www.bemydisciples.com
  4. 8th Grade Only, for “Church History” textbook!  Go to the page: http://www.faithfirst.com/html/chapReview/le/choose_grade_le.html.  This website is an older web version however, it allows the Home Study Student to have chapter review results emailed directly to the Director of Religious Education.
