It is Saturday night and I am writing out my lesson plan. Much improvement over last week. We’ve been memorizing Genesis 9:12-16 since the beginning of January. I haven’t talked to them much about what it’s about. I was saving that for this week. I have been reading the story straight from the Bible in previous lessons. I don’t think that’s going to work with this lesson. It is 4 chapters long. Their attention span is pretty short so I don’t think I can hold them that long. I’ll let them tell me the story. I’m sure they all know it well.
Prayer — We will start the lesson with a prayer. I am trying to teach them to include 4 things in their prayers — salutation, praise, thanksgiving and to ask for something.
Activity: Review last week’s lesson with the same activity we used — Deciding if a statement describes the way Adam and Eve lived before they sinned or after they sinned.
Bible Lesson: Discuss where the lesson is found and then narrate the story to the children allowing them to fill in if they would like.
Memory Work: We continued working memorizing Gen 9:12-16. Take time to discuss how this fits into the lesson of Noah.
