Eli the High Priest
This morning we will talk about Eli and what a High Priest does. I have a flip chart that depicts some of the High Priests and Priests' jobs in the tabernacle or temple. I hope to have the children make Ephods for the take home Wednesday night. Today our take home is Samuel the little boy. It will help reinforce the lesson of Hannah taking Samuel to live with Eli.
My lesson plan is:
This Little Light Of Mine
Discuss prayer using the prayer box in class. I will let each child say a prayer that wants to.
Read Samuel Flip Chart
Do Samuel Magnetic Puzzles
Read High Priest/Priest Flip Chart
Sing Samuel song again if they are interested.
Move to Storytime area (floor)with Bibles -- Call each child one at a time to place their attendance picture on their chart. Place a pillow on the floor where that child is to sit. After he/she is seated, call the next child up.
Sequence pictures. I think we've had enough lessons to let the children sequence Samuel's story. We'll see.
If there is time, use the hand pointer to review the books of the NT. As the children have a turn at saying the books, ask them to put their pillow up and sit at the table.
If there is time I'll choose from the following:
They have been begging to do the "bubbles". Since we had a few minutes left, we did them. We sing the song -- It isn't any trouble just to s-m-i-l-e. I blow the bubbles while we sing. They love it.
I'm a Hero!
