Saul Lesson 3

I've almost got my classroom decorated for this quarter. I'll try to make some pictures available when it's finished.

I want to teach the kids "Trust and Obey". We are going to stress this week that Saul disobeyed God. I made flip chart for the song. I really wish I could draw. I have pictures in my head, but I can't put them down on paper. I found some pictures in Thru The Bible Coloring Book that were appropriate to illustrate the song. I colored, mounted and put the script (song) on the back.

My lesson plan is:
This Little Light Of Mine -- Turn on battery candle. Use it to remind the kids to behave.

Read Life of a king Flip Chart . This flip chart discusses things kings do and the help they get from others (gardener, jeweler, soldier, brick layer, artist, advisors, cupbearer)

Sing: We Want A King
Tell story of Saul using Henley's Clip and Tell (Basically I'll be cutting out a crown while I tell the story. I'm emphasizing different events in the story than she did, so I will have to improvise). They were really amazed Wednesday when I opened up the paper and there was a crown. I think they'll like to see it again.

Saul Flip Read Chart. This flip chart is just 6 pages long, but it covers the basics.

Attendance charts -- crowns -- I think I'll just keep these attendance charts off the wall. I think it will make it easier this time around.

Move to Storytime area (floor)with Bibles -- Call each child one at a time and place a pillow on the floor where that child is to sit. After he/she is seated, call the next child up.

Flannelgraph story -- Saul becomes King

Emphasize that Saul disobeyed God. Introduce "Trust and Obey" flip chart.

Sing: Let the kids choose their favorite songs to sing.

Return to seats.
