You bet you need a Bible!
Good call - HOD strives to have dc in the Bible every day. It always helps me to read through the Introduction, Learning Through History, Learning the Basics part of the guides at the beginning. It doesn't take long and lays out the whole year beautifully for me in a nutshell! Here are the parts that pertain to the Bible memory/study boxes:
Bible Memory Work
A new memory verse is introduced each unit. Each memory verse has a
practical meaning for young students, and also reinforces God’s plan
throughout history. A variety of daily memory activities incorporate gross
motor skills to help students enjoy memorizing these important verses.
Daily Bible study questions are meant to instill Biblical values by training
children to read and reflect on God’s word. The questions work best
with the King James or NIV version of the Bible. Each unit includes the
following Bible study activities in coordination with the history stories:
*Day 1: introduction and interpretation of the memory verse
*Day 2: personal application of the memory verse
*Day 3: observation of Godly character through devotional reading
*Day 4: practical application of the devotional character trait
*Day 5: exploration of a Bible passage focusing on Godly living
HTH, and have fun with Beyond! It's an awesome guide!
