Elijah And The Altar Contest

This is our next to the last class on Elijah. I've already been thinking about Daniel (our next study). We will start studying Daniel on Ma6 7. These last 2 lessons will cover the altar contest and Elijah riding to heaven in a chariot of fire. We will be adding the altar and pitchers of water to the small flannel graph boxes tonight. Sunday AM we will add the chariot of fire.

A dear friend is completing the last activity for Elijah. This activity will reinforce the whole month' lessons. There are 5 pictures depicting Elijah and the ravens, Elijah and the widow, Elijah and the widow's son, Elijah and the altars and Elijah and the chariot of fire. There is a set of large (1/2 of a regular sheet of paper) pictures that we will do together. Then there are individual sets for each child. After we go over it as a group, they can put their own pictures in order. We'll do this activity tonight and Sunday AM.

My lesson plan is:

Sing: Jesus Loves Me and The B-I-B-L-E We are learning The B-I-B-L-E in sign language. The kids like challenge and so do I.

Magnetic Puzzle -- Elijah and the Chariot of Fire

Sing: Elijah.

Elijah Flip Chart.

Sing: God Will Take Care of You using the flip chart.

Attendance Chart -- Add a raven to the picture of Elijah sitting down by the tree.

After a child adds his raven to his attendance chart, have him choose a pillow and sit on the floor in front of the flannel board.

Elijah Flannel graph story using Betty Lukens felts.

Old Testament books -- Work together with the large blue cards (books of law), and the first 3 red cards (Joshua, Judges, Ruth). Then let each child take a turn pointing to and saying the books on the wall with the hand pointer. After each child has had a turn, let them return to their seat. Give each child his set of OT cards to put in order on his own.
