Kacie5 Stars Out Of 5Worth It's Weight In GoldNovember 7, 2020KacieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Lesson Book is filled with lessons that are perfect for Preschoolers! Things to color, things to cut out, ideas for snacks and more but more material that I would use in a single lesson. This makes it great, because I can pick and choose the activities that fit my preschoolers. You can add games and other activities or tweek the things that are presented to do.
It is an economical book of lessons that just about anyone can afford. I would highly recommend this to anyone on a budget but it can't be beat for those who are not either!
At Grandma's Place5 Stars Out Of 5Engage preschoolers in fun Bible learningAugust 18, 2020At Grandma's PlaceQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Top 50 Creative Bible Lessons for preschoolers provides a treasure trove of Bible lessons and activities that have nothing to do with screens or devices. If you're looking for simple, customisable and easy-to-use resources, then look no farther. The content works for individual or family use and Sunday or mid-week programs. And it's an economical alternative to more expensive children's programs.
Each lesson provides plenty of simple learning activities, but I would also include a simple hands-on activity and/or action game. For example, if you're teaching the lesson, A Wife for Isaac, you could include an action activity like 'being Rebekah' with kids taking turns to take a cup of water from a bucket and try to fill a basin or trough for the camels. (Kids love anything to do with water,) Or... they could make a big jug of fruit-filled water and show kindness by pouring/using a ladle to fill cups for each other.
But it's an amazing starting point for home, mid-week or Sunday groups. The activities require very little preparation, and it would be easy to add extras in terms of action games and movement activities.
Activity pages include a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions and 'what to say' ideas that will help preschoolers apply Bible truths.
There are a lot of different reproducible activity sheets: mazes, connect-the-dots, picture puzzles, song and fingerplays, picture searches, arts and craft projects, snack activities, and action rhymes.
Flexible- Customisable- Easy to Use
LAS5 Stars Out Of 5Great resource for Preschool ministryJuly 13, 2020LASQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was very happy from the moment I started to check out this book. I have seen a lot of fluff in material on the preschool level--but this resource turned out to be a jewel!
The 50 lessons cover the wide range of Bible stores that we usually want our little ones to know. They are not in-depth, but very well summarized, with a main point being brought out in each lesson.
With each story is provided engaging activities and also suggestions to help the teacher interact on the topic with the students. Each story also has a take-home page with a story-related fun thing for the child to do. It will keep the child thinking about the lesson and also help the parents reinforce the lesson if desired.
There are also very short but relevant memory verses. I was particularly impressed by this since a lot of preschool material does not deal with memory work. These are well-chosen and are pointedly connected to the main idea of each lesson.
The book is illustrated in a simple way, but there are no visuals. However, I know from experience that it is rather easy to find appropriate visuals for each story, eg. a video to show after the teacher presents the story as in the book, or pictures to show as the story is being told. I find that YouTube or Free Bible Images web sites are helpful in this.
The activities are very simple and prep work (if any) is minimal. They are well within the abilities of a preschool child, and are things they would enjoy (eg. glueing, glitter, simple puppets, dot-to-dot, etc.) There are 3 activities for each lesson. The teacher could choose from among them, or do all three, depending on how much time he/she has for the class. Suggestions are made on how to discuss the lesson and the truths of the lesson while the children are working on the activity or craft.
I did not see any "busy work" or "fluff." Everything presented in the lessons had a purpose and was focused on the lesson facts or the main truth emphasized in it.
Each story with its activities could be presented in one Sunday school hour, or less, depending on the need and the way the teacher wants to manage her/his time.
Difficult stories, such as the crucifixion, are quickly, simply, and tastefully presented. The facts are there but the story is as minimally "scary" as possible. I was impressed with the way this was handled.
Bottom line: I highly recommend this resource for anyone teaching Bible to preschoolers. The lessons are simple yet very pointed and useful. The book will last you a year, and will help you lead your little ones through the whole Bible.
