We have a NEW lesson for this Sunday. We will be leaning about Isaiah prophesying the Coming of Jesus. I am excited about this lesson...I get the blessing of showing the KIDDOS one of the FAITH building prophecies of our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST!!!
We will be adding this CARD to our "GOD'S AWESOME PLAN FOR MAN" Time Line. We will add it under the Isaiah the Prophet Card...That way the KIDDOS understand that this is a PROPHECY of the Coming of JESUS.
My Visuals for this lesson are very SIMPLE...I am using my "self drawn" Isaiah with a SPEECH BUBBLE...and a Clip art picture of Baby Jesus in a CLOUD---sort of to represent "IN THE FUTURE." I think it works. :-)
We will be adding THREE new words to our "WORD WALL." I think these are very important WORDS for the KIDDOS to KNOW in order to truly understand the lesson.
The KIDDOS will have a NEW Memory Verse for this week.... I LOVE this verse....It is so descriptive of our LORD!!

We sung this song when we learned about Isaiah being "CALLED" to be a PROPHET. We will sing it again this week...It will help the KIDDOS REVIEW the fact that Isaiah was CALLED by GOD to be a PROPHET. It will help remind the KIDDOS that Isaiah was speaking what GOD wanted him to speak. He was GOD'S "MOUTH PIECE."

The KIDDOS "TAKE HOME" Project is fairly simple....I am sure you have seen something similar.
I designed the "stable" on the computer....The BABY JESUS came from Oriental Trading Company. I believe it went with a different type of project ---I buy a LOT of items from Oriental Trading when they have their Clearance Sales!!!
During class time the KIDDOS will color their stable and baby Jesus. They will attach their baby Jesus and STAR to the Stable.
(The cards have questions on them...I will read the question and the PICTURES on the Bingo Card answers the questions!)
Each card has the same pictures on it...they are just arranged in various orders...that way each question is answered on EVERY CARD!! :-)
This is what I "CAME" up with. I was shopping at HOBBY LOBBY when I saw these little cuties hanging the the Christmas Ornaments for Miniature Trees area.
So, .I purchased them removed the strings then hot glued them to the green checkers. I LOVE how they turned out!!! One of those things that makes me SMILE....Because, it will allow further conversations about our TOPIC!!!
Next week will be our REVIEW week. During REVIEW week the KIDDOS make an activity that they add to their "Explorer Journal." Because, I use the over all theme of being a "Bible Explorer" we each have an "EXPLORER JOURNAL."
They will add the tongue depressor style craft sticks to make the manger. They will add the crinkle paper for the "hay." Then they will add their own Baby JESUS wrapped in SWADDLING CLOTH---(scraps of blue flannel that I had in my scrap box.)
I am REALLY happy with how these turned out...We will be talking about the various descriptions of JESUS...HE is truly WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER and the PRINCE OF PEACE.
I am so excited about this lesson. I LOVE teaching the OLD TESTAMENT---especially when I am able to show the KIDDOS how the OLD TESTAMENT is fulfilled in the NEW TESTAMENT. :-)
