VBS -- Success

We had a great VBS this year. We had 46 children in attendance. That may not sound like a lot to some people, but considering our classroom size and available teachers, it was perfect. Here a few pictures of my class to give you an idea of how it went.

This first picture is of my class. Jill Goad is my helper and she did a great job. I realized how much I needed her the two days she was unable to be there. One of the kids had to leave early Friday, so he's not in the picture. The t-shirts were made during our art session. They all wore them on Friday.

This picture is of my kids playing vocabulary concentration the last day. We learned 15 vocabulary words (3 each day). They were written on cards and the definition was on another card. Each day some of them had the time to match the definition with the vocabulary word on our magnetic white board. On Friday, we turned them all face down and played concentration.

The next two pictures of of the walls in my room. The first one is of Jesus teaching parables. The parables that we studied were added to that days poster as we progressed through the week. The 2nd one illustrates how Jesus answered the question -- Why do you speak in parables?

These last pictures are of the workbook we used in class. Each page had a pocket that the little booklets and stickers for that day were stored in. Each day there was a place to write the definitions to their vocabulary, copy the verse to be memorized and an activity to reinforce the lesson.
