Learning Together is designed for flexibility with individual units on specific topics or themes.

Each lesson includes a Lesson Overview, Background for Leaders, Large-group Opening Activity, Five Activity Stations (Storytelling, Craft, Science, Games, and Snack), Closing Prayer, and For the Home take-home guide.

As I worked with it [Learning Together: God’s Gift of Water], I loved how clear & simple it is. The theology is sound, and the activities are age appropriate and fun! Supplies needed are easy to find and accessible on any budget. After using curriculums for over 10 years that are overwhelming and require a lot of prep or expensive supplies it’s absolutely my favorite!

I am a curriculum snob. For me, curriculum is a tool, something I use to help me learn what the group I’m working with already knows and how to help them use that to understand the new concept we’re working with. Good curriculum is flexible for settings and people. Good curriculum is inclusive of all learning styles. Good curriculum provides pathways to develop new understanding from an existing concept. Good curriculum engages rather than dictates. I don’t often find curriculum that has all of these components, nor ones that also make sure that the learner’s curiosity is piqued and fed. [Learning Together] from Spirit and Truth Publishing is one of those curriculums that ticks off all of these requirements and provides space for both the learner and leader to engage and grow.
