The objective of the game is to be the first to find Jesus in the temple. The players roll the dice and follow the directions on the space they land on. If the player lands on a space that is already occupied by another, BUMP that player back to the START space. If you land on a space with dice on it, roll again. The first player who lands on the temple wins.

Had forgotten about this game.

I can't believe you only have one kid in your class (saw that on Elaine's blog). Actually, yes I can. We would have the same problem except we've only got 3 teachers...hence the groups get lumped differently. We've got PK-K, 1st-5th and 6th-8th. Works for us.

My ONE student did not come on Sunday. I might be moved to 4th grade if he doesn't come back. Hubby only had 1 student on Sunday (he started with 2).

I hate to say this (don't want to make you feel bad), but we have 5 new kids this year. A blessing for us. I know at least 3 of them will be regular (mother is very committed). Nobody wants to go to church anymore. Seems they would rather be "doers" instead of "hearers", which isn't a bad thing. But they forget they need the education of hearing too. And so do their children.

4th grade, huh? That means you'll have all your old students. But a whole different teaching level. Pray! :) Next year you'll probably have 20.

Congregation numbers are going down in every church. When I first started teaching 1st grade I had 18 - 22, hubby had 25 in his 6th grade class. So sad.

The 4th grade teacher used to be my 1st grade co-teacher so I think we will do great. :)
