Solomon — Lesson 3

Solomon Lesson 3

Well, this is a first. I’m getting my lesson plan ready early Saturday afternoon.

While I’m thinking about it, I thought I would talk about the Wednesday PM Proverbs activity. Each Wed PM we will learn a new Proverb that Solomon wrote. I chose 4 that I thought would be easy for the kids and relevant to their lives. I then chose 4 application pictures that represented the Proverbs. The pictures were taken from the Thru-The-Bible Coloring Pages.

Each week I let the children color the picture we are talking about. I cropped the picture (in Print Master), taking off the caption on the picture, and added the Proverbs we were using in its place.

Before class, I colored the picture, scanned it into Print Master, took off the caption and added the Proverbs we were using. I then reduced the size of the picture to where 4 of them could fit on one page. Then I printed it out on card stock.

These cards are what go into the library pocket (actually, you need to make a larger pocket — or smaller pictures) I talked about in the previous lesson plan. Each week, we add the current picture to the pocket. Then we review the Proverbs. At the end of the month, they will get to take these pockets w/cards home.

Here’s the Proverbs and page numbers of the pictures I chose:

  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Proverbs 3:35
    p. 230 — ages 2-4 coloring book

  • A friend loveth at all times. Proverbs 17:17
    p. 76 ages — 4-8 coloring book

  • Even a child is know by what he does. Proverbs 20:11
    p. 146 — 4-8 coloring book

  • When you lie down, you will not be afraid. Proverbs 3:24
    p. 74 — 4-8 coloring book

My lesson plan is:


This Little Light Of Mine — Turn on battery candle. Use it to remind the kids to behave.

Magnetic Puzzle — Solomon Builds the Temple

Sing: Solomon

Solomon Flip Chart. Read entire flip chart.

Sing “Go To The Ant” by Glenda Schales. We’ve been singing this frequently. They are learning the words. Now they will learn that Solomon wrote these words in Proverbs.

Attendance Chart — Our attendance chart this month is a cloth pouch. Each class session they will put a “gold coin” in their pouch. By the end of the month, they should be rich.

Pass out pockets with colored illustration of Proverbs 3:5 in it. Review it with the kids so hopefully they will memorize it.

Pass out a card from the Song Timeline to each child. Let them put them in order, singing the songs as we go.

“Trust and Obey” flip chart. This flip chart is to help teach the song by the same name. It is really for lessons with Saul, but they really like it, so we’ll keep using it for a while.
