We had a good class Wednesday PM. My little girl that has been upset about coming did great. We should finish up our touch and feel book tomorrow. I may keep them for one more class period, or maybe even until the end of the month. That way we can use them for review.
We're going to emphasize Jesus Growing Up tomorrow. We have a Black Light story that tells the story really well. It emphasizes that fact that the Wise Men came and visited Jesus after He was a little older, not the night of His birth.
My lesson plan is:
Sing: Jesus Loves Me and The B-I-B-L-E with sign language.
Introduction to Story: Snip'n'Tell camels.
Boy Jesus Magnetic Puzzles
Sing: Jesus Grows Up -- This song has not been put online yet. I hope to in the next few days.
Boy Jesus Black Light Story
Touch and Feel Book: We'll do the 4th page. It emphasizes the gifts the wise men brought to baby Jesus. The kids will get to decorate the gifts on the page with rhinestones and ribbon.
Life of Christ Flip Chart
Attendance Chart: I'll let them choose what animals to add to their attendance chart from now on.
Move to the floor.
Review the lesson with the Jesus Flannelgraph story.
Return to Seats and do the small Flannelgraph boxes. The pictures in these this time are of Jesus as a baby, as a young boy and as a grown man. The kids will be able to put them on their flannel board in order. This would also be a good time to sing the new "I'll Grow Up Like Jesus" song again.
As time permits, do the following:
