We have a NEW LESSON this week!!! The KIDDOS will be learning all about SETH. Seth is such an important BABY!!!! After all, JESUS will be one of SETH'S descendants!!! So, not only was SETH a blessing to ADAM and EVE, he was a BLESSING to YOU and ME!
We have new informational cards up on our DO YOU KNOW? Wall. These are the BASIC questions I expect the KIDDOS to be able to answer at the end of the LESSON. Who? What? When? Where? Where in the BIBLE? Why? and How is this important to me?
We have a PICTURE CARD of "BABY SETH" up on our "GOD'S AWESOME PLAN FOR MAN" timeline.
The KIDDOS will have a NEW song to sing for this lesson. This song comes from my BIBLE SONGS for CHILDREN, songbook/CD collection.
I wanted a MEMORY VERSE that tied in with the LESSON. I thought this one would be great!!! It allowed me the opportunity to talk to the KIDDOS about how if we live GODLY lives we can have an effect on others.
We sing it to the tune: Ten Little Indians.
My visuals for this lesson are really simple...I decided to go with a PICTURE attached to my handy, dandy photo frame. This visual is simple clipart from Printmaster.
This is the KIDDOS TAKE HOME project. They will each have their very own "SETH" to take home with them....CRIB, BLANKET and RATTLE included!!! :-)
These are soooo easy to make, all you need is baby socks, blue fleece, ribbon, pringles singles containers (these were donated to me...I have a TON of them...LOL) And, the rattle...just for fun!!!
The socks came from Dollar Tree...3 pair for $1.00...that is SIX baby Seth's from one pkg of socks. The Rattles came from the Dollar Tree...from the BABY SHOWER section. The fleece blankets came from the Dollar Tree. I found them in their BABY section. I bought 1 blanket and I HAVE a BUNCH of LEFTOVER FLEECE!!! Oh, I filled each sock with white RICE....used a rubber band to give it a "head," tied a knot in the sock and rolled it over to form the bonnet. Hope these instructions are clear. :-)
During Class time the KIDDOS will glue on the eyes, decorate the crib with "IT'S a BOY" stickers, and wrap him up and put him in his bed. FAST, SIMPLE and the KIDDOS WILL LOVE IT!!
The KIDDOS will REMOVE a RATTLE from BABY SETH, by answering the question PRINTED on the RATTLES.
Then, we will play the game in reverse--the KIDDOS will add the RATTLES to BABY SETH by answering the questions on the RATTLES.
Next week will be our REVIEW week. The KIDDOS will be making these to add to their EXPLORER JOURNALS!!
To give this activity a PUNCH...the KIDDOS will be gluing on flannel blankets and gluing on a tiny baby bottle into EVE'S hand.
Seth is such an IMPORTANT Bible Character...OUR SAVIOR comes though SETH'S family!!!! I want the KIDDOS to REALLY UNDERSTAND SETH'S importance in Bible History.
