Pin It

I have heard nothing but joy and excitement for the brand new ABC Jesus Loves Me website.  To know that what we have done has blessed you does my heart good!

To celebrate the new website, we are going to offer the largest giveaway yet and you get a choice in the winnings!  How cool is that?

This giveaway is called: 

Mistakes for Winnings

Let's talk about the "winnings" first. 

The randomly chosen winner of this giveaway gets his or her choice of two ABCJLM books.  You can choose any two of the eleven Curriculum and Workbooks available on the ABCJLM website.  (See the list of options here.)

Now for the "mistakes."  You enter to win by sharing with me mistakes that you find on the website.  (Don't worry.  It won't hurt my feelings.  I want to fix the mistakes!)  This could be an error in punctuation, misplaced modifiers, a sentence that doesn't make sense, a broken link, just to name a few.  Unlike other giveaways, there is no limit to entries.  You can enter with one error or one hundred.  Obviously, the more errors you share, the better chance you have to win.  Be sure to leave a separate comment for each mistake you find and don't forget to leave your name. 

One more giveaway.  The person who reports the most errors will receive one of the new Handwriting workbook(Notice:  This workbook includes all of the color worksheets except for the 26 black-and-white Letter Writing Worksheets used in the 5 Year Curriculum.)

Simple enough?  I think so!

So pull out your magnifying glass and begin clicking, reading, and reporting to have the option to win up to three ABCJLM books!

This giveaway will last two weeks.  I will choose and announce the winners on Friday, June 21st on this blog.   (So, be sure to check back to see if you have won!)  You will have until Thursday night at 11:59 p.m. (CST) to enter in our giveaway.

Very important: In reporting, please report the exact page where the error was found and the sentence surrounding the error.  This is very important for me to be able to find and fix the error. An error can be reported only once to count as an entry. 

*"This comment has been removed by a blog administrator." comments are either duplicate errors or are not errors.


What error did you found on the ABC Jesus Love Me website?


This giveaway is available for US residents only.  My apologies to my non-US friends!

  1. The website is great! I hate to point out any errors. However, you asked for them. On the home page you list 4 Curriculum for ages 2-5, the correct plural should be curricula.

      I have talked to several English majors about the curriculum word. Obviously need a few more conversations! :)

  3. On the "How Do I Teach?" page under the Introduce, Recognize, Identify header, #3 reads "The child can identify the concept and the concept is learne." Just needs a d.

  4. Under "Using the Lesson Plans" - 5 year example - Idea #3 5 year curriculum example has Day 1, Day 2, Day 2, and Day 4. It should have a Day 3 in there.

  5. Not sure if this is an error, but if it were me, I would want the sidebar and header to match. Sidebar says "supplemental material" but when you open up the page the title says "supplemental materials." I would want them to match. :) Sorry to be so critical, but I want to win!!! :)

    On the 2 year curriculum lesson plans on week 36 Review you have the wrong book listed. It reads "The Rainbow Fish" it should be "Gossie" from week 35.

    2-Year Curriculum Memory Verses Page

    'Each memory verse in the 2 Year Curriculum relates to the Bible story and...' Maybe should read 'relates to the corresponding Bible story' or perhaps, 'relates to that week's Bible study'.

    When I read that sentence my first thought was, 'relates to which Bible story?'

    Feel free not to include that as a 'competition' mistake. More a usage issue. (I was a high school English teacher for 15 years before I became a stay-at-home mother!)

    To help learn the memory verses, printable 2 Year Curriculum Memory Verse Cards are available to print.  

    This is a redundancy. "Printable 2 Year Curriculum Memory Verse Cards are available", or "2 Year Curriculum Memory Verse Cards are available to print". Don't need both"printable" and "to print"

    On the About Our Site page the last line of the second paragraph reads: "I found that I did not have the resources nor the time to prepare all of the crafts and go on the field trips suggested for a week." I believe that it should read: "..field trips suggested for that week."

    On the "Order for Family Use" page it states: "Please read the links in the vertical menu before ordering to understand what each book contains - "What is Included in Each Book?" - as well as shipping information." Including the title "What is Included in Each Book?" is redundant. You might use a sentence like "Please read the links in the vertical menu before ordering to understand what each book contains, order and shipping information."

    1. Wow..I didn't know this rule. I was taught not to capitalize preps and from what I just read online, it depends on whose rules you follow.

      "The Chicago Manual of Style, for instance, notes that "articles (a, an, the), coordinating conjunctions (and, but, or, for, nor), and prepositions, regardless of length, are lowercased unless they are the first or last word of the title." But The Associated Press Stylebook is fussier: Capitalize the principal words, including prepositions and conjunctions of four or more letters." Grammar.about.com

      Because it seems to be whichever way your choose to follow, I will leave as is. They advised picking a way and being consistent. Plus, changing it will appear wrong to me every time I look at it! :)

      Thanks for pointing this out. I learned something today!

  34. On this page:
    http://www.abcjesuslovesme.com/curriculum/all
    You say, "...you may desire to use more than one curriculum at a time. The "Across the Curriculum" tables..." But the link in the left-hand column is titled, "Across ALL Curriculum" and then when you click on the link, the page title is back to "Across THE Curriculum" but your page heading (in your browser bar) is "Across ALL Curriculum" - is there a reason you're using both?

    "In a few small containers, gather the supplies suggested for the 3 Year Curriculum. Then when it is time for a game, craft, or other activity, the supplies are easy to collected."

  43. Under "Curriculum," "3 Year Curriculum," "Lists & Guides," "Memory Verse" :

    I think it's supposed to say "Each memory verse in the 3 Year Curriculum..." Also, should the 2nd sentence say "CD's" or "CDs" instead of "Cds"?

    "Each memory verse in the 2 Year Curriculum relates to the corresponding week's Bible story and many verses are repeated to aid in retention. Many of the songs come for the Steve Green Hide 'Em in Your Heart Cds. Having a CD makes it easy to work on the verses throughout the day in your home and car. The rest of the verses are set to familiar tunes."

    "Below are several different ways to make these cards using sandpaper, sand, yarn, glitter paper, chipboard, pipecleaners, puff paint, and glitter glue. I suggest you make the uppercase and lowercase letters as well as numbers 0-9 at the same time instead of doing the needed ones each week."

  60. Under "Extra Ideas," "Holiday Ideas," "Christmas," "Activities":

    * The 2nd Activity (Gingerbread Houses) - a period is needed at the end of the last sentence.

    * The 3rd Activity (Be Wise Men) - a parenthesis is missing at the end of the last sentence.

    * The 4th Activity (Send Christmas Cards) - I think it should say "Send Christmas Cards" instead of "Send a Christmas Cards"

    * The 11th Activity (Using modeling clay or playdoh) - I think you've been changing playdoh to playdough?

    * Further down, under "Christmas Traditions," - the 1st one, "ornament" is misspelled "Add one glass ornament..." I'm also not sure what the 2nd sentence is supposed to really say...."Add one glass ornmanet a day to the Christmas tree. One the Christmas tree write a promise from God and read the daily scripture."

  79. Under "Extra Ideas," "Books & Reading," "3rd - 5th Grade": In the description for the Ralph S. Mouse Set, there is a type-o in the book title "The Mouse and the Motorcycle." (the word "the" is listed twice and the word "and" is forgotten)

    "The Ralph S. Mouse Set - By Beverly Cleary, this set includes the popular Mouse {the} the Motorcycle book. 5th Grade Reading Level"

  80. Under "Extra Ideas," "Books & Reading," "3rd - 5th Grade": In the description for "Ramona Quimby, Age 8," the word "names" should be replaced with "named."

    "Ramona Quimby, Age 8 - Follow the life of a 3rd-grade girl {names} Ramona. 5th Grade Reading Level"

  81. Under "Extra Ideas," "Books & Reading," "Mommy Just-For-Fun Books":

    * In the first sentence, "These are the books that I read when I have free time..." there is a picture or maybe a symbol posted after the words "free time." It doesn't display for me. I'm not sure if that's because I'm using Chrome, or if it is indeed a broken image?? Just thought I'd mention in case it doesn't work on your end as well.

    * Under Karen Kingsbury, the word "my" needs to be added to the first sentence: "Like so many other Christian women, Karen Kingsbury is one of {MY} favorite authors."

    * Under "Not My Will" by Francena Arnold, the word "is" needs to be added to the first sentence. "Originally written in 1946, this {IS} a book that few have read but all should read."

  82. Under "Extra Items," "Books & Reading," "Mommy Survival Books":

    * The last word of the first paragraph needs to be plural ("items"). "A list of the books that have been vital to me being a wife, friend, and the raising of our children...as well as books that you have suggested! Visit Our Favorites for more suggested item{s}."

    * The first book listed, "1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12" - I think perhaps the word "non-emotion" in the description should be changed to "non-emotional." "This book uses the philosophy of counting "1-2-3" as a discipline tool; making it a simple, non-stress, non-emotion{al} way to discipline effectively."

    * The disclaimer at the bottom of the page...the word "it" should be replaced with "is" in this sentence "Check scripture references and make sure that nothing {it} out of context."

    *Also, the first sentence of the disclaimer sounds a little odd...maybe it needs reworded?? "Please understand that with any of the books listed here, there are good and bad" Maybe add "....there are good and bad {points to each}." ???

  83. Under "Extra Ideas," "Letters," "Formation Chants": Replace "simply" with "simple" in the first sentence.

    "While teaching our children handwriting, I realized that ten {simply} formations created all 26 letters of the alphabet."

  84. Under "Extra Ideas," "Letters," "Letter of the Week Activities," "Ii" - For "Snacks and Foods" the first bullet point is ice cream. It currently shows it as one word, but I think it should be two words.

  85. Under "Extra Ideas," "Letters," "Letter of the Week Activities"

    * Aa - "Animals in the Ark" - For the sentence "Then add animals stickers" I think dropping the "s" off of "animals" would make it sound better.

    * Aa - "Ants" - Perhaps change the word "antlers" to "antennae" ??? (maybe??) "Add {antlers}, six legs, and a face to make the fingerprints look like ants.

  86. Under "Extra Ideas," "Letters," "Letters of the Week Activities" "Bb":

    * Bb Activities - "Bubble Art" - The last sentence in the directions for "Bubble Art" needs a little fixing. "Divided" should be "divide" and coloring is misspelled.

    "Mix it all and divide{d} into different bowls or cups, and add food {colouring}."

  87. Under "Extra Ideas," "Letters," "Letter of the Week Activities":

    *(Ff) - The heading for "Ff Computer Activities" is in bold, except for the "Ff" part (for some reason that's in a non-bold font).

    *(Gg) - Gg Activities - The link in this sentence gave me an error (I wasn't sure if this is because you're still working on the new navigation or not....just thought I'd mention it in case it was a different thing). - "Collect items for "My G Box" - Idea from My First Steps to Reading books"

    *(Gg) Gg Books - "Goodnight Moon" - "Goodnight" should be one word.

    *(Hh) Additional Hh Poster Ideas - "hand prints" should be one word in this bullet point: - "Finger paint to create {hand prints}."

    *(Hh) - Several of the books listed are not underlined, but it looks like they are still hyperlinks (just looks a bit inconsistent, but a very, very minor detail): The Cat in the Hat, The Hat, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Green Eggs and Ham.

    * Several letters had this listed as an activity: "Collect items for "My ___ Box" - Idea from My First Steps to Reading books." Not all letters had this listed....I wasn't sure if it should be???

    *(Kk) - "Kk Computer Activities" is written partially in blue and partially in black. Also looks like some of it is in bold and some is not.

    *(Ll) - "Ll Snacks and Foods" - This bullet point needs an "r" on the word "life save". "Licorice, lollipop, life-save{r}"

    *(Mm) - "Mm Snacks and Foods" - Marshmallows is misspelled

    *(Nn) - "Goodnight Moon": Goodnight should be one word

    *(Pp) - "Pp Books" - "Poppleton in Winter" is in a different shade of blue font than the other books

  88. I think the contest is over, but just found this. I'm starting to print things a week or so at a time, then (hopefully)get organized and everything together so that come August, it's all ready to go. On the weekly lesson plans for 2 yr program, I'm having trouble with the link to "ABCJLM Red Coloring Sheets". I get an "ERROR :500" message. I can scroll down to the section where you discuss color activities and print each one individually there. But the link to the group of pages at the top in the summary is not working. The same thing happens with week 2 blue and week 3 yellow. Also noticed that for week 1 and 2 at the bottom it says "Color one of the ABCJLM Red Coloring Sheets: Red Balloon, Red Heart, Red Leaf, Red Stop Sign, Red Truck, Red Wagon" each of those can be clicked on individually and it will print. But for week 3, even the "ABCJLM Red Coloring Sheets:" is blue for a link (like at the top) but it doesn't work. I prefer printing them individually anyway since that's easier to choose which one(s) I want to use. So maybe it's not supposed to be a link.

    1. Wendy - Thank you so much for letting me know about this. That is definitely an error and happened when I was working on adding sub menus to the main menu. I am taking a week off for family time but will work on fixing that error next week. Thank you!

  90. I too know that the contest is over, but just found something that I thought I would bring to your attention. Under the 5 Year Old Curriculum, in the sidebar menu under "Objectives", the 13th bullet point reads: • be introduces to coins, the clock, and addition And I believe it should be "be introduced.... ?? Hope that helps!
