Milk Caps Books of The Bible Memorizing

I am THRILLED to say that we have completed collecting our Books of The Bible Milk Caps.  This was a loooong activity.  Since there are 66 books in the Bible we have been working on collecting our milk caps for over a year!!

The KIDDOS have WORKED really hard and have had fun "earning" their MILK CAPS.  They earned a NEW Milk Cap by MEMORIZING their BOOKS of the BIBLE.    

I love that each Milk Cap set is unique...Notice that we made sure that each "division" of the Bible is separated by color.    LAW, HISTORY, POETRY, MAJOR PROPHETS, MINOR PROPHETS,  GOSPELS, HISTORY, PAUL'S EPISTLES, GENERAL EPISTLES, PROPHECY.  It helped the KIDDOS to get them in the correct order.  

As a SPECIAL gift, for memorizing all 66 Books of the Bible, I gave each of my KIDDOS a special pen.    I ordered these from Oriental Trading.  (I am not associated with Oriental Trading nor do I get any revenue by mentioning Oriental Trading.) I simply mention them as a way to help my readers find supplies for their Bible Class.  I thought these would be a perfect gift!!  They were really excited that they were PENS!!!  

This was a very FUN way to MEMORIZE the Books of The Bible!!  This past Sunday the KIDDOS poured all their Milk Caps out and put them in order!!!  I was so impressed!!!

Now that WINTER is officially upon us, I wanted out ATTENDANCE Charts to reflect this time of year.    I decided to go with SNOW GLOBES.  

I reused the blue background paper from the past quarter...I changed out the border to a fun RED and WHITE Polka Dots!!  I love the contrast!!

I printed and laminated the words, "SNOW GLAD YOU ARE HERE!"  then added them to the board. Then added on a BUNCH of snowflakes!!!  I had these snowflakes in my supplies.  I had purchased them several years ago...I bought them at Hobby Lobby on clearance.  I love it when they put stuff on 90% off!!  Then I used my clipart program and printed out the snow globes.  I added pictures to my regular attendees....however, we plan on moving up a few, I went ahead and printed out a few extra to be prepared.  

The final touch was to add the large snowflakes around the border!!  I LOVE how this turned out.  We have an idea to make these snow globes a little more "special" at the end of the quarter.  I will post pictures when we do.

Isaac and Rebekah

I am a bit behind on the, I am attempting to play catch up.   Here is what we did recently.  We are continuing to EXPLORE BIBLE HISTORY.  We just recently had a lesson about Isaac and Rebekah.    

We added a "EVENT" card to our GOD'S AWESOME PLAN FOR MAN!!  Timeline.  This TIMELINE is a great way to review past lessons. Since most of my KIDDOS remember via visual triggers...this is a great resource to have up in our classroom at all times.  It is an every growing and expanding visual.  

I wanted a Memory Verse about seem to be the perfect type of memory verse to go with this lesson.  So, I chose John 4:14.  We sang the Memory Verse to the tune:  "Oh, Come All Ye Faithful." We did explain to the KIDDOS that JESUS is the one that gives us "water" and that if we follow and obey HIM we will never thirst.  However, because my KIDDOS are so young...we put it all on KIDDO friendly terms. We were happy for them to tell us that JESUS is our EVERLASTING  SPRING that GIVES ETERNAL LIFE.  

To tell this story I used CLIP ART visuals....  I just printed and laminated them.    The KIDDOS loved that Rebekah's arm moves.  

For the Kiddos TAKE HOME project we made a picture of Rebekah offering water to Abraham's Servant. The KIDDOS colored and added stickers and the PITCHER. They enjoyed making theses.  They really enjoyed making Rebekah's arm go up and down.  :-)  

Our REVIEW game was a FUN and simple game.  The object was to get the camel to the WELL.  Rebekah is standing near the WELL ready to give the camel a drink.    The KIDDOS would pull a card from the QUESTION cards.   If they answered the question correctly they would move the camel to the next space.  

The "GAME BOARD" is made out of sand.  I already had the, I decided to put it to use.  The little cardboard trays were in our "RECYCLED" Bible Class supplies in our Resource Room.  They worked perfectly!!    The KIDDOS LOVED touching the sand!!  

The following week was our REVIEW week.  So, the  KIDDOS made THESE and added them to their EXPLORER JOURNAL!!!  

They enjoyed adding STICKER PALM TREES, a PITCHER which is sort of 3D, we used FOAM STICKERS to make it POP off the paper.  The KIDDOS added ROCKS to the WELL,  then, they added SAND!!!  That was their FAVORITE thing to do to their Explorer Journal Activity!!

This was a fun lesson to teach.  We focused on GOD taking care of Isaac and how HE chose the RIGHT wife for Isaac.
