This month (November) we will be learning about Samson. Tomorrow we will discuss the instructions the angel gave Manoah and his wife about baby Samson. He was to be raised a Nazirite. My class will learn that he was not to drink wine or cut his hair.
This has been a realy busy week. Our gospel meeting starts tomorrow (with RJ Stevens) and I’m having several people over for lunch. So, I asked for some help getting this lesson together. Thanks to all of you that were so willing to help.
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!

Hop! Goes the Frog (With pic of frog)
Review New Testament Books. Tomorrow I will finally take the hand pointer to class. Each child should get a chance to use it to point to the names of the NT books. The books are written on circles that are stapled to the wall to look like a worm. I’ll try to get a picture of it on here sometime.
Return to table.
Prayer — Using prayer box.
If time allows discuss manners during worship.
