Tonight will be our last lesson on Saul. We will be emphasizing how important it is to obey. Saul disobeyed God which kept his family from being king. I have a take home for the kids tonight. It is basically a little coloring book. The pictures to color were taken out of Thru The Bible Coloring Pages. This is a great resource for those of us who can't draw.
This is just a quarter fold card made on Print Master. The 1st picture is the cover.
This is the two inside pages
This is the back cover.
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). I'll have to do this one more time. I've let a different child take the crown home each time. I need to let one more child do this.
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. We had 7 kids in class Sunday morning. There just wasn't enough room to do flannel graph on the floor, so did it at the table. I think we'll try it on the floor tonight.
Return to seats.
Emphasize that Saul disobeyed God. Introduce "Trust and Obey" flip chart.
Hand out Obedience Take Homes. If there is time and interest, they can color the pictures in class. If not, just let them take them home.
Sing: Let the kids choose their favorite songs to sing.
