"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 CathyDuffyReviews.com
Academically, a 4-year-old learns how to write letters, numbers, name, his/her phone number and address as well as learning about the seasons, senses, and tying a shoe to name a few. Also basic math such as shapes, colors, spatial concepts, sorting, opposites, sequencing, and patterns are learned. A "Book of the Week" introduces the child to some of the best preschool books in print.
The Bible learning of the 4 Year Curriculum focuses on character education and the Fruits of the Spirit. The learning is supported through various Bible characters and stories, memory verses, and songs.
Development and self-care are important parts of the 4 Year Curriculum. Gross and fine motor skill activities along with visual perception activities are part of this curriculum. The Letter and Number Progression worksheets of the 4 Year Curriculum combine these similarities to make handwriting easier. Beginning with the simple line and progressing to more difficult strokes, the worksheets increase in difficulty allowing the child to ease into the harder forming letter and numbers.
The 4 Year Lesson Plans book contains over 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 four-day/week schedule. These are only available in this printed book and are not available in the Kindle edition.
The over 80 perforated worksheets in the 4 Year Workbook include: Objective Checklist, nine "My Coloring Books," twelve Letter Progressions worksheets, as well as the ABCJLM craft activities, templates, and worksheets used throughout the 4 Year Curriculum.

The Visual Perception Workbook contains over 100 perforated worksheets used to improve the child's visual perception skills. These worksheets are used in the 4 and 5 Year Curricula. The workbook includes: Mazes, Dot-to-Dots, Roll-a-Picture Games, and all of the Visual Perception Worksheets used in the curricula.
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.
