I'm convinced someone is cheating me out of precious time in my class. It seems like the class gets shorter and shorter. I was all ready to teach the lesson and give the kids about 10 minutes to work in their stations Wednesday night. The bell rang way too early. We did get through the lesson, but didn't get to get to the stations.
Tomorrow's lesson is on chapter 6 of the Sermon on the Mount. The Lord's prayer is in this chapter along with more great stuff. They are memorizing the Lord's prayer, so we'll spend a little extra time talking about it. One of the activities they are to complete while memorizing the Lord's prayer has them writing their own prayer patterned after the one found in Matthew 6. I've done this activity several times in the past and the kids are always very pleased with the result.
I spent the day today getting the plan for next quarter written out on paper. That is the hardest part. The rest is just putting the plan into action. With computers, color copiers and laminators, it's a breeze compared to what it used to be like.
My Lesson Plan:
Review what we've studied so far.
Today's lesson: The Sermon On The Mount (Chapter 6) We'll be concentrating on the Lord's prayer.
Review the New Testament cards on the wall. We're going to have to do 2 this week. I think we'll be doing 1 and 2 Thessalonians.
Let them spend time in the stations.
