Studying the Book of Psalms

We wrapped up our first week back to school.  Though we haven't started everything, we did start our Bible study using Draw to Learn Psalms by Charlene Notgrass.  I must say, this is an awesome study! Even Ruben is enjoying it and asks to complete the lessons :) 

Draw to Learn Psalms has 150 lessons leading your student through the entire book of Psalms.  We are using it as a family.  Riley and Ruben each have their own copy of the book.  Angel and I are using sketch pads to draw our lessons in.  First I read aloud the assigned Psalm.  Then there is a drawing assignment to follow up.  I recommend  Draw to Learn Psalms.  Here are some of this week's drawings....


  1. Thank you for sharing! I've been trying so hard to find something that will get us deep into His word again. :) What age would you say would be the youngest you would use it with?

    Thank you!

  2. I believe the book says it's for use with K-12th grade. I think this is possible, but obviously an older student's drawings will be more in depth and meaningful. I'm using it for 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 12th grade. I also think it depends on the child. Our 4th grader would have been ready to use this in K or 1st, but it would have been more of a challenge with our 3rd grader.


  3. Melissa, what a neat idea! We've illustrated scripture before but not on a regular basis. I love Psalms, I'll have to take a look at them with drawing in mind next time through!

    Thanks for linking up!
