Tonight's lesson is Jesus healing the 10 lepers. This is an excellent lesson not only on the power of Jesus to heal, but also on the importance of saying thank you. I will stress tonight the importance of saying thank you to God, but we'll also talk about saying thank you to everyone that does something for us.
Sunday AM we turned out the lights to illustrate what it was like to be blind. The kids tolerated it for a couple of seconds, then they began to let us know they were feeling a little scared. We got the lights back on before it got too bad. Like I said in my last post, when the lights are off in that room, it is dark.
Sunday AM I had some extra time, so we sang some songs I have used in the baby class: Tell Me Little Daisy, Dig a Little Hole, and Whatever I Will Be When I Grow Up. Two of the boys had never heard them and the other 2 had not heard them in a long time. They really enjoyed them. If we have time tonight we'll sing them again.
My lesson plan is:
Sing: Jesus Loves Me and The B-I-B-L-E with sign language. Also sing My God Is So Big.
Magnetic Puzzle -- Jesus Heals the 10 Lepers
Sing: What is a Miracle?
Review the story of the miracles studied so far using the flip chart pictures.
Add today's lesson -- Jesus Heals The 10 Lepers using the flip chart picture.
Pop-up Book. The page for today is a lift the flap page. On the front is a picture Jesus and the 10 lepers. When they lift the flap, the 9 lepers are walking off in the distance. The kids will get to glue the thankful leper on the page close to Jesus.
Attendance chart: The attendance chart came from Palma Smiley's Sharing lesson. Each class session the children will glue a basket to their picture of Jesus feeding the 5000.
Sing songs: The Bright Red Crab and Bumbling Bumble Bee or others of their choosing.
Review previous lessons with the Song Timeline.
End class with a prayer. Let each child that wants to say a prayer.
If there's time talk about manners in the church building using the flashcards in the room.
