Proverbs -- Go To The Ant

Tomorrow's lesson is on work. Proverbs 6:6-11 paints a great picture in your mind of an industrious ant that works without having to be told. This passage is great for the kids on its own but add to it Glenda Schales song "Go To The Ant" and it is unforgettable. The only thing I wish I had done ahead of time was to have an ant farm in the classroom for the kids to watch. Maybe I can get that ready for next week.

We will have an activity using the same Q/A book from Dinah Zike's Big Book of Books that we used Wednesday night. I get kind of in a rut at times. When something works well once, I figure it will work well again. At the bottom of the lesson plan, you'll find a link to the files and a picture of the activity.

Lesson Plan:

Bible Facts: Add the next 2 facts. I think they've finally gotten the hang of this.

Psalm 127: Review the first two parts that we have copied. Read the entire chapter out loud in unison. Do the activity (word scramble)

Review: Remind them about what Proverbs are and who wrote them. Talk about wisdom and then review the lesson on the parent/child relationship.

Proverbs 6:6-11: Read aloud and discuss. Sing Glenda's song (Go To The Ant)

Activity: Do the activity described in the introduction.

Books of Poetry: If there is time, let them do this activity.

Sing: Glenda Schales' Uz Was.
We'll also sing Make A Joyful Shout.

If there is time, review Psalm 23 and Psalm 100.
