"ABC Jesus Loves Me is a truly comprehensive curriculum. It should satisfy those who want to provide a structured learning for their little ones. It should also be useful to those who want to pick and choose ideas without using the complete curriculum. The Christian base of the curriculum makes it an excellent option for Christian preschools as well as families who want to build a faith-based foundation...."   ...Cathy Duffy of


Academic Learning
Academically, a 3-year-old learns colors, an uppercase and lowercase letter per week, numbers, and basic math skills including shapes, sorting, spatial concepts, and patterns. The child is taught letter and number formation through tactile letters.  A "Book of the Week" introduces the child to some of the best preschool books in print.  

Bible Learning

The 3 Year Curriculum consists of a chronological study of Bible stories from Genesis to Acts.  Each Bible story is supported with a memory verse, song, and finger play or nursery rhyme. 

Developmental Learning

Development and self-care are important parts of the 3 Year Curriculum.  Each week contains an activity to improve fine and gross motor skills. Activities are provided to help a child write his/her name on 3" letters by the end of the curriculum..


3 Year Lesson Plans

The 3 Year Lesson Plans book contains almost 100 pages which make up the 36-week Lesson Plans. Also included are the curriculum's Scope and Sequence, and the Daily Schedules which divide each lesson plan into a three-day/week schedule.  These are only available in this printed book and are not available in the Kindle edition. 

3 Year Workbook

The approximately 110 perforated worksheets in the 3 Year Workbook include: Aa-Zz Letter Posters, 0-15 Number Posters, the Objective Checklist, the color-printed Pre-Writing and 3" capital Letter Worksheets, as well as the ABCJLM craft activities, templates, and worksheets used throughout the 3 Year Curriculum. Also included in color are the First and Last Day of School posters, “I am Learning” Objective Poster, and Memory Verse Cards. 

Bible Workbook

The Bible Workbook is a collection of 110 perforated worksheets that have been created exclusively for the ABCJLM 2-5 Year Curricula. Simple designs make them easy for toddlers and preschoolers to use and to further the Bible concept being taught. 

Handwriting Workbook

Unique to ABCJLM is the Handwriting Workbook, a collection of almost 60 penmanship sheets. Compiled from the 2-5 Year Curricula, these worksheets assist a child in learning how to correctly and neatly form letters and numbers. What makes the ABCJLM writing process so extraordinary is that each level is a building block for the next. 

   Digital Downloads

The 3 Year Curriculum Digital Downloads consist of Bible Song and Poem Cards.  Print, hole punch, and bind together for easy access and mobility.

While these are not directly used in the curriculum, the 3" Lowercase Letters Printable may be used along with the other ABCJLM Handwriting Worksheets.
