We’ve had a very busy week. We had a wonderful gospel meeting with RJ Stevens. I mentioned last week that I was having several for lunch on Sunday. We ended up having 18. It was a lot of fun.
Since we didn’t have Wednesday night Bible class, it’s been a whole week since the kids had a lesson on Samson. So, we are going to repeat last week’s lesson plan.
Last week went well. As I said in my last post, the flash card story is quite long. They sat very still and listened intently. But, I was left with not enough time to do the flannelgraph story. We’ll try to get it all in tomorrow.
I introduced the hand pointer last Sunday. It is really cute and kids really like it. I’ll try to get a picture of them using it for you to see.
My lesson plan 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. This worked really well last month, so we’ll keep doing it.
Nazirite Flip Chart
Sing: Samson (Click here to hear/view the song Samson)
Samson Magnet Puzzle. Each child has their own magnetic board for this.
Samson Flip Chart. This flip chart is 20 pictures long. I may just have time (or their attention) for half of them tomorrow.
Move to Storytime area (floor)with Bibles
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.
God tells us about many exciting people in the Bible. Review Gideon briefly as well as Samson. Discuss judges and let them know that Gideon and Samson were judges.
Return Bibles to basket.
Flannelgraph story. I did something different with the flannelgraph. I took pictures of each scene with my digital camera. I put them on Print Master and listed the piece numbers. I also wrote a little script for each scene (in case my mind goes blank).
I’m a Hero!
A Great Big Squeak (With pic of mice)
Hop! Goes the Frog (With pic of frog)
Review New Testament Books. The books are written on circles that are stapled to the wall to look like a worm. Use the hand pointer to point to each of the books. Each child should get a chance to do this.
Return to table.
Prayer — Using prayer box.
If time allows discuss manners during worship. Last week we talked about going to the bathroom after class instead of going sometime during the worship service.
