Elijah Lesson 5

My Elijah lessons have not been as organized as I would've liked them to be. I am just now finishing some of the activities I had planned. So, I'm doing activities as they are done, not as they come in order in the story. Tomorrow we will add a flip chart about how bread was made in Elijah's time. I will also add Joshua, Judges and Ruth to the Old Testament Books cards. The Small Flannel Boxes have an altar, and 3 water jugs added to them. They should be able to tell the story of Elijah and the Ravens, Elijah and the Widow and Elijah and the Altar with their little boxes.

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 Altar

Sing: Elijah.

Elijah Flip Chart.

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

Cut and Tell Story -- Elijah and the Widow -- In this story, you cut out a large jar as you tell the story about Elijah and the widow.

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.

Old Testament books -- Work together with the large blue cards (books of law). Introduce 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, pass out the individual sets of cards with the blue cards (the law). Let each child practice putting them in order. Let them take turns using the hand pointer to say the books as they point to them on the wall.

Small Flannelgraph boxes. This week we will add the widow, her son and the flour oil pictures.
