VBS -- Other Parables

This is our last class for VBS. It is amazing how quickly the time flies by. It has been a very busy week, but it has also been lots of fun. We had 6 kids registered for my class. So far, our most kids were on Thursday when we had 11.

Today's lesson is on the "Other Parables". I don't know why some of the parables have been categorized the way they have, except that they've got to do it somehow. The two we'll be studying today are The Parable of the Sower and The Parables of the Wheat and the Tares.

We'll either play Bible Bee again or do a concentration game with the vocabulary words. We may have time to do both. I'll put both in the lesson plan just in case.


Lesson Plan:

Parables for today: Other Parables
The Parable of the Sower
The Parable of the Wheat and Tares

Go to Art:

Fill out attendance cards.

Introduce Vocabulary. Today's vocabulary is sow (that's the planting kind, not the pig), tares and hundredfold

Read the little books in the pocket of their workbook. There is a book for each of the parables tomorrow.

Memory Work: They are finished copying all their memory work. Some have even said the entire passage from memory. Today we'll give any others that want to try a chance to say it. They get stickers for each verse they memorize. If they say the whole thing, they will get a ribbon (paper ribbon).

Do Activity in the workbook. Today's activity is a review of all 14 parables we've studied this week. I have divided the parables in to 9 lessons Jesus was teaching. They will have little pictures for each parable that they will glue in the box with the correct teaching. The boxes say things like: Teaches that the church will grow, teaches that the church is valuable, teaches that we must be prepared, teaches that there will be a judgment, etc.

Play Bible Bee and/or Vocabulary concentration

Songs. We'll sing all the parable songs today. You can see the ones I have online here: End of Time Parables and The Parable Song
