As we draw to the end of the month, the battle of Gideon is our main focus. We have discussed how God chose Gideon, the signs Gideon asked for and how God told him to choose his army. Each week the children have heard the entire story. As the month draws to a close (and I begin focusing on next month’s lesson) we will be doing review. There will also be time for some extra activities we haven’t had much time to spend on.
My lesson plan for tomorrow morning is:
This Little Light Of Mine
Turn on candle. Remind them that as long as they are good the candle will stay on. If they misbehave, the candle goes out.
Pass out Gideon puzzles (handmade 4, 6 or 8 piece puzzle with picture of Gideon choosing the men for his army)
Sing: Gideon — A Mighty Man of Valor (Click here to learn/view the song about Gideon)
Read Gideon Flip Chart
Demonstrate the signs again using the water and “sheepskin”.

Pass out Bibles — talk about what the Bible is, who it came from and how we should treat it.
Do B-I-B-L-E activity.
