If your church isn't using Sword Training, you can get a set of materials for home use. Great for homeschoolers! Each home study pack contains:
Timeline Cards - The 5.5" x 8.5" timeline cards are the backbone of Sword Training. There is one card for each story in a year, with a total of 48 stories. There are also cards for the timeline divisions (e.g., Age of Beginnings, Age of the Patriarchs). The cards are printed on heavy paper for regular use and handling. The back of the card has questions that you can use to quiz your child on the story. You can also use the questions as an outline for you to tell the story to your child. This is especially useful when you get to topics that include very lengthy readings, such as the story of Esther or Jeremiah.
Labeled Map - Each month, Sword Training covers some of the major geographic points from the stories that you will teach to your children. This helps children learn that these are true stories that happened in the real world. These maps are for you to use when teaching, and they are labeled with all of the geography features covered throughout the year. (The child version of the map isn't labeled.) The maps are laminated for durability.
Memory Song CD - The music CD is one of the keys to learning the timeline and all the other memory work. All of the music is recorded a capella especially for Sword Training. These tunes are simple but extremely catchy. The timeline song is the favorite of most kids. Go to the "Overview" page to listen to a sample if you haven't already. Listening to this in the car helps you live out Deuteronomy 6:7. "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."
Memory Booklet - This little booklet (5.5" x 8.5") contain all of the memory work for one year. It matches the content on the CD and it also includes the entire timeline written in order.
Blank Map - This 11" x 17" map is the same as the labeled map. (Without the labels of course.) Use this to quiz your child on their geographical understanding of the Bible lands. Of course, your child will likely want to quiz you too!
