My lesson plan is:
Opening Activity: Old Testament books -- Work together with the large blue cards (books of law), large red cards (books of history), the green cards (books of poetry and the Major Prophets, and the new Minor Prophets (We'll add Joel, Amos, Obadiah). Let each child take a turn pointing to and saying the books on the wall with the hand pointer.
