Samuel -- The Last Lesson

I forgot to publish this post. Sorry it's out of order, but here it is.

This week is our last time to talk about Samuel. Next week we begin the study of the kings. Of course, Samuel is involved in anointing the first 2, so he's not gone forever.

My lesson plan is:

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

Discuss prayer using the prayer box in class. I will let each child say a prayer that wants to. We've been concentrating on saying 3 things in a prayer. Praise God, Thank God, and Ask God for something. This is really turning out well.

Read Samuel Flip Chart

Do Samuel Magnetic Puzzles

Sing: Samuel

How Clothes Were Made Flip Chart. We're using this flip chart to emphasize the fact that Hannah gave Samuel a coat each year. That was no small thing back when clothing was all made by hand.

The take home this week is a set of paper dolls. One picture of Samuel, Hannah and 2 coats. These came from Soul-ly for Kids. Pass out and talk to the kids about them. Put their name on their envelope and take up until the end of class.

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.

Flannelgraph story -- We've only done this once this month. Hopefully we can fit it in tomorrow.

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. I haven't had time for this lately. We'll see if we get to it this week.

Pass out the take home after they settle down into their seats.

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.

Let the kids choose their favorite songs to sing.

Discuss manners in the auditorium.
