Praise Factory Investigators CD and Sing-a-long Storybook (all ages)
Available through Amazon.com
Join Tim and Jenn and the Praise Factory Investigators as they dig deep down in the truths of God's Word. A little storyline ties together the lyrics and Bible truths behind the 19 songs in this musical adventure in theology. These materials integrate not just the 16 Big Questions (and Answers) used in all three of the Praise Factory curriculums,but also the core theological concepts, too. Lots of fun styles and variety that both kids and adults can enjoy and learn from.
These new songs are also being incorporated into the new versions of the three Praise Factory curriculums that are in process now.
Here's a few nibbles for you...
Teach, Take and Tell is a one year, 12-unit children’s systematic theology for use with two and three year olds. It focuses on twelve key biblical truths. The same Bible story and truth are presented each week of the four/five week units, allowing the children to master the concept and story. Action rhymes,songs, games and crafts reinforce and add variety to this basic core lesson.

Big Questions & Answers for little people is a three year children’s systematic theology for three to pre-kindergartener five-year-olds. It presents 52 key biblical truths that expand the children’s understanding of the same12 Big Questions and Answers used in Teach, Take and Tell. There are 3 weeks of curriculum for each of the 52 biblical truths. A Bible story, reflective of the truth is presented along with the concept each of three weeks. This allows the children to master the concept and the story. Actions rhymes, songs, games and crafts reinforce and add variety to this basic core lesson.
The Praise Factory is a six year, multi-age children’s systematic theology curriculum for elementary school children. It is comprised of 104 key biblical truths -- called "Big Ideas"-- divided into 16 units, common to a systematic theology. These biblical truths expand the children’s understanding of the same 12 big questions and answers used in the two preschool curriculums and add four additional big questions and answers. Within each 3-week Big Idea, there is an Old Testament, New Testament and Church History/Missions story presented. Each week’s curriculum includes 8 different activities to reinforce the Big Idea concept and story.
Sing & Say along the Way
"Sing and Say along the Way" is a companion resource to use alongside all the three Praise Factory curriculums: Teach, Take & Tell (2's and 3"s), Big Questions and Answers for little people (3-5's), and Praise Factory (K-5th grade). It includes all of the key concepts for all three curriculums as well as the CD track numbers for all the Praise Factory music. Great resource to review all of the biblcial truths in the curriculums.
