Solomon Lesson 2
Tonight we will have our second lesson on Solomon. I have an activity that will be added to each week. Using different Proverbs and coloring pictures that illustrate the Proverbs, each child will have a set of cards with the colored picture and Proverbs beneath it. These are stored in a library pocket (actually its larger than a library pocket). Then, the kids will color their own picture to take home. We will add to these cards each Wednesday night in the month of March.
I also made the attendance bags. These are cloth bags with elastic at the top. Each week they will get a coin to put in their pouch. This is to emphasize that Solomon was very rich.
My lesson plan is:
This Little Light Of Mine -- Turn on battery candle. Use it to remind the kids to behave.
Magnetic Puzzle -- Solomon Builds the Temple
Solomon Flip Chart. Read entire flip chart.
Attendance Chart -- Our attendance chart this month is a cloth pouch. Each class session they will put a "gold coin" in their pouch. By the end of the month, they should be rich.
Pass out pockets with colored illustration of Proverbs 3:5 in it. Talk about it to the kids. Take them up again for next Wed PM.
Pass out pictures illustrating Proverbs 3:5. As the kids color, talk about the Proverbs.
Let the kids choose a pillow and sit down on the floor.
Pass out a card from the Song Timeline to each child. Let them put them in order, singing the songs as we go. On a side note, I have put the Gideon song online at my website. You can print it off and hear it sung. Take a look and let me know what you think.
"Trust and Obey" flip chart. This flip chart is to help teach the song by the same name. It is really for lessons with Saul, but they really like it, so we'll keep using it for a while.
Return to seats.
Sing "Go To The Ant" by Glenda Schales. We've been singing this frequently. They are learning the words. Now they will learn that Solomon wrote these words in Proverbs.
If time permits, do some of the generic activities on the shelves.
