Tomorrow morning will be our last lesson on Gideon. Next week we start with Samson. It has been a fun study. The kids seem to have an understanding of most of the basic facts. They can even put the events in order.
Wednesday night’s class went well. They really liked the black light story. The torches/pitchers were received well once I convinced them they weren’t trumpets.
My lesson plan for tomorrow 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. We’ve done all 3 of the puzzles. I may give out different ones to all the kids. Then let them tell me about their puzzle.
