Samuel Lesson 2

Read Hannah's Prayer Flip Chart
Do Samuel Magnetic Puzzles
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.
Read Samuel Flip Chart. We had 7 in class, so our floor space was limited. I may have to reconsider doing this when we have so many in class.

Before I let them loose, I talked to them about behaving politely in the auditorium. I don't know how much good this does for the other kids, but I know with my 2 that it
