Introduce craft: Do you remember how to say “I love you” in Sign Language? (Have students demonstrate.) Do you know how to say “Amen” in Sign Language? (Show students the sign for “Amen” in Sign Language from handspeak.com.) Let’s make a craft that says “Amen” in Sign Language.
Loaves & Fishes and go over vocabulary words with students. Read story: “Loaves & Fishes” The Usborne Children's Bible by Heather Amery and ask questions from Take Home Sheet that will be sent home today. Note: When I read the story to the students I usually sit in the chair in the corner by the board and have the students sit on the floor in front of me. After the students have answered the questions about the story, I have them go back to their seats to continue with what is on the lesson plan (activity, craft, game, puzzles/worksheets, etc.).
Craft- Introduce craft: What did Jesus feed the 5,000 people? (Fish and bread.)
Fish and Bread- Preschool Christian crafts by Linda Standke, page 55 & 56. Color and cut out basket from pattern. Color and fold paper sides upright and glue. Glue on paper handle to make into a basket. Color fish and bread and cut out. Put fish and bread inside basket.
Puzzles & Worksheets- While students are doing puzzles/worksheets, etc. they may say a prayer. Students are asked to recite 5 prayers by the end of the year. A “We Know Our Prayers” chart is on the bulletin board. If the student can recite the prayer correctly, write the date on the chart, and they get to pick a prize from the prize bag.
Jesus is More Than Enough- Hidden Pictures: Explore Hidden Treasures in God’s Word Grace 1 - 3 by Linda Standke, page 22
Homework- Give each student a Loaves & Fishes Take Home Sheet for their parents to go over with them to review what we have done in class. Parents need to help their child fill this out and bring back to class the following week. Students that complete their homework and bring it back to class will be able to play Homeworkopoly. Each Sunday the students make a mini story book and/or story wheel in class. Students need to read these to their parents (or the parents read to them) the mini book and/or story wheel for homework.
