What is the meaning of the Pentateuch? I was recently asked to write a review for the fruitful book, Pentawhadda by Lynn Calvin Plater.
From Westbow Press and CYLS-KIDS comes a book designed to teach children about the first five books of the Bible. In the tradition of Pilgrims’ Progress, the characters’ names have a symbolic meaning. Therefore, the story teaches ambiguously as well as showing examples of explicit instruction.
How to teach the meaning of the Pentateuch.
Pentawhadda shares an experience of a class at a Christian school welcoming a guest speaker named Mrs. Bibel. The guest speaker and teacher, Mrs. Prazer, positively collaborate with the students to create a fun learning environment. Likewise, the passages demonstrate fun interactions between a teacher and her students.
Throughout the text, the reader will discover they are reciting the words aloud. Moreover, Mrs. Bibel’s methods for pronouncing big words stay with you. Pretending to sneeze at the end of the word Pentateuch and saying statements such as “Leave it inside us” for Leviticus make for fun vocabulary lessons. In addition, the detailed illustrations allow the reader to see a diverse classroom filled with visual aesthetics.
a resource to teach children about the first five books of the Bible
Pentawhadda is a great resource to teach children about the first five books of the Bible. Having been in the classroom myself, I know that children will identify with the text and will be eager for Mrs. Bibel to visit as the special guest Friday speaker again.
