Our boys love Veritas Press and for the last few weeks, were have been using their VeritasBible.com program. VeritasBible.com from Veritas Press is a wonderful homeschool Bible curriculum that includes access to three different courses, a total of 128 lessons, for up to 5 children, grades 2 and over, in your family.
VeritasBible.com is an online Bible program that teaches children, in chronological order, major events that happened in the Bible. They do this through beautifully illustrated stories, lessons and games. VeritasBible.com currently consists of three courses:
- Genesis to Joshua
- Judges to Kings
- The Gospels
with 2 more courses soon to be added:
- Chronicles to Malachi and Job
- Acts to Revelation
Each courses consists of:
- great foundational context for future studies
- memory tools for names, dates and places
- a great song with music for helping memorise the chronology of events
- activities, projects, worksheets and test
- covers 32 major Biblical events
How did we go?
We received a one-year family subscription to VeritasBible.com which our boys have absolutely loved. Both of our boys love to start things at the start, so they are both currently completing the Genesis to Joshua course. Since this is a family subscription, I also added myself and I have been completing the Genesis to Joshua program too.
Once logging in, you will find this program to be very easy to navigate, easily moving on from one lesson to the next. We didn’t find the loading times long for the videos either, so the boys just bounced from one lesson to the next completing many in a row without noticing.
So when you first log in, you are taken to a dashboard. Our boys thought it was fun to choose their own avatar and took their time finding the perfect one. Each time they now log in, they click on their name and are taken to their lesson map and can continue where they left off.
Each section (the white circle in the picture above), contains 4 lessons. Each lesson has up to 14 parts to it. These parts contain a few short 2-3 minute videos that are very in-depth. Scattered through these 14 parts are the interactive activities and review exercises. At the end of each of the lessons there is a graded exercise.
Your child needs to pass this quiz in order to show they understand the topic and to move onto the next lesson. This also means that children are not able to skip lessons, they are to complete each section and lesson in order, moving on only when they have passed.
Once they have complete the graded exercise and passed, you are able to review the questions, print their results and continue the lesson.
Our boys really love watching the short, hilarious videos and then completing the fun interactive activities, though if your child struggles with reading, they may need help with these activities. We have learnt so much already and the boys have even memorised most of the Bible song and can name the 32 Bible events off in chronological order.
Overall, this program is brilliantly designed in a way that will captivate any child. I love how it is self-paced and allows each child to independently work at their own pace. It is very in-depth with its teaching and the great mix of videos, interactive activities and great audio means that this program has been designed with a variety of learning styles in mind.
We love Veritas Press! It is one of the best Bible programs we have found. Our boys love it and will definitely continue using it. We can’t wait for the next two courses to open!
