We are already half way through our study of Solomon. That means I really need to get ready for next month. We will be studying Josiah. He's such a fascinating king, only 8 years old when he began and was considered a very good king. But, we'll get into that later.
Tonight we will add another Proverbs card to the pockets we started last Wed PM. We will also do the coloring page associated with that card. Since it doesn't matter which order we do them in, I'll decide when I get to class which one to do.
My lesson plan is:
This Little Light Of Mine -- Turn on battery candle. Use it to remind the kids to behave.
Magnetic Puzzle -- Solomon's Exotic Animals (This is a picture of Apes). He had some fascinating animals. The kids should love learning about them all.
Solomon Flip Chart. Read entire flip chart.
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.
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. Review it with the kids so hopefully they will memorize it. Pass out new card and discuss it. Let the kids put the card in their pockets.
Pass out Color sheets that correspond to the new card. Last time we did the color sheet, they all wanted to look at the one in their pocket so they could color exactly like the card was colored.
Pass out a card from the Song Timeline to each child. Let them put them in order, singing the songs as we go.
"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.
If time permits, do some of the generic activities on the shelves.
