This third grade spelling workbook incorporates fun word searches, crossword puzzles and other puzzles into gentle spelling lessons while elegantly tying in Catholic content. Dictionary work, fill-in-the blanks and some traditional spelling practice are also included.
This is the first book in the series to offer short biblical quotations in most lessons that can be used for memory or copywork and are coordinated with a segment for apologetics lessons in the back of the book, called "Scriptural Answers for Every Catholic Kid". For example, week twenty offers this quotation: "...but of that day or hour, no one knows, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father..." (Mark 13:32) The segment in back is a little more extensive:
Week Twenty: Jesus' Return
False teaching: Numerous cult leaders have set dates, most of which have come and gone, for Jesus' return.
Counter with: "...but of that day or hour, no one knows, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father..." (Mark 13:32)
