Planning Your Wisdom Books


The Wisdom Books are great for the heart issues as well as it being a wealth of knowledge, so I have made it the backbone of our schooling. Using the Wisdom Book Weekly Planner keeps us on track and focused upon Him.

I would recommend before planning your month with a specific Wisdom Book, or with any curriculum, you should spend time with God to seek His guidance and counsel as what He wants your children to learn.

This is how I use the Wisdom Book Weekly Planner:

Week One

  • Discuss what the Major Concept
  • Wisdom Quiz
  • Commands of Christ

For the months that have five weeks in them, I usually extend the Science, History, or Medicine section for that month by adding in an extra field trip or art projects to do. Art projects is a great time to do “lapbooks”. My daughter loves working with lapbooks. However we stopped for a year because of life events. I have one shelf that is full of her books that she made. Every once in a while, I will catch her sitting on the full reading the books she put together. It is a real blessing to see her do this. Since she is now 14, she thinks she might be a little too older for lapbooks so we switched to doing the mini books in a notebook format. She like them a whole lot better. Notebooks tend to hold up over time where as file folders can easily be worn down, especially if the child keep going back and looking at it.

This schedule is not written in stone, but an idea of how to split the Wisdom Books into days that are easier to achieve. We flow with the Holy Ghost, so if He wants us to learn something more in-depth or spend longer time on a concept that my daughter doesn’t quite get, then we will simply follow Him. However, everyday our goals are to complete the Wisdom Book section, three “R”‘s, then if time permits for read aloud then projects and field trips come in last. I know the Lord has called us to do the Wisdom Books for such a time as now.
