First and Second Grade
An interactive Bible story, review system, application activities, a simple time line and maps, Bible drills and more help first and second graders not only learn the contents of God's word, but also how to use it and apply it to their lives!
With the Bible Study Guide, students cover the entire Bible in 416 lessons, studying some Old Testament and New Testament each year. When they outgrow the Primary level, they simply graduate to the next lesson of the next level without missing a beat! To see the order of study, click here.

How do I use it for kids in the first and second grade?
Together, the Primary Teacher Guide and Primary Student Pages lead you and your children through the entire lesson. Since the Primary level bridges the gap between very low-level readers and more advanced readers, the Primary level is the one level that requires a Teacher Guide. As you follow the Primary Teacher Guide, you will lead your student(s) through the Bible lesson while they interact with their Student Page. You’ll be amazed at how much all of you learn! The Bible Book Summary Cards and the Children's Songs CD Set are often referenced in the lesson. They are optional but highly recommended. The Wall Maps and Time Line set is another great, optional tool that you will love if you have some wall space.
