We are making progress.....we are learning about Cain and Abel. We are a bit behind, due to weather. We have NEVER had to cancel services....but, a week ago we were covered in ICE. It made for extremely dangerous driving conditions. So, our elders decided it would be best to cancel services. With that being said, I feel like I am behind....but, really it is all gonna be OK.
Here is our DO YOU KNOW? Wall...I feel the KIDDOS really "GET" the lesson when they are able to answer these IMPORTANT Questions. Who? What? When? Where? Where in the Bible? Why? and HOW is this IMPORTANT to ME?
We have a "NEW" card on our GOD'S AWESOME PLAN FOR MAN...timeline. It is CAIN and ABEL.
Our MEMORY VERSE for this Lesson is Romans 12:1. We sang it to the tune: "Oh Come All Ye, Faithful."
I want the KIDDOS to understand that GOD WANTS our BEST...and we MUST GIVE HIM NO LESS!!!!!!
This is the SONG for this lesson. However, while preparing this lesson, I came up with another song...we will be singing it, too!!
The NEW song is sung to the tune: BINGO.
Eve and Adam had a son and CAIN was his name.
He was a farmer. He was a farmer.
He was a farmer, he raised vegetables.
Eve and Adam had a son and ABEL was his name.
He was a shepherd. He was a shepherd.
He was a shepherd, he cared for the sheep.
The VISUALS for this lesson are very simple. My CAIN and ABEL are Fisher Price Little People. They came from their Dinosaur set...but, as soon as I saw the one with the LEAF and one with an ANIMAL BONE---I thought CAIN and ABEL. I added some vegetable (they are erasers and came from Dollar Tree) and some home made sheep from a lesson that I had taught a LOOONG time ago. The picture in the background was "self drawn." I just looked at a drawing and did my best to "mimic" it.
Their TAKE HOME project is very simple.... They will color the background and add a POP UP Cain and Abel.
The REVIEW GAME for this Lesson is a "MATCH" game...The KIDDOS will answer a QUESTION to get the OPPORTUNITY to turn over a set of cards....IF they match they will have to tell me if the cards go with CAIN or with ABEL.
Next Sunday will be our REVIEW day...the KIDDOS will do their EXPLORER JOURNAL Activity. For this ACTIVITY they will be adding rocks to their ALTARS and then the 3D Vegetables and Sheep.
The vegetables are from the DOLLHOUSE section of Hobby Lobby. The sheep are toy plastic sheep.
I have one other IDEA to share with you....I will take PICTURES and add it to the website this next week. Keep checking back. :-)
