As I began planning this lesson last night, I felt completely off my game. First of all, our Bible verse cards (which I specifically did not pack early because I wanted to keep track of them) have become lost in the move! And I had no idea where the storybook Bibles were or my "Bible lessons" spiral notebook. I also had been thinking that Jenna probably didn't remember anything because it had been so long and she's been completely obsessed with Wonder Pets lately and thinking of little else! SO, because of this I decided to do a review lesson today.
Also, I used a new book today to help with the review. It's The Baby Bible Storybook. These books are so cute for toddlers and I had recently picked this up at a consignment shop to use for Madeline. I used it today because Jenna loves it too, and it gives really brief reviews of the stories we had already done.
1. Verse - no new verse. I need to find our other verses before our next lesson!!
2. Lesson -
- Pray with your child about the lesson.
- Review the Bible stories that you've already taught. I did this by reading the first three stories out of The Baby Bible Storybook, "God Made Everything," "Noah and the Animals," "God's promise to Abraham and Sarah." (These were all just one short page, so this didn't take very long to do.)
- Review all the previous lessons by going through our Bible Crafts binder. (This is a notebook we've put together of all of Jenna's Bible lesson crafts.)
Since the point of today was really to review names and stories, I decided to do something a little different and have Jenna practice writing/tracing the names from our stories. If you go to this handwriting website, you'll find a worksheet generator for you to type in any words and it will print them as print-dot letters to use for writing practice. I used the "Paragraph Worksheet Maker" and typed in "Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, Tower of Babel, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac." Then Jenna traced the letters as we talked about each name.
4. Song -
I asked Jenna what she wanted to sing and she chose "The Noah song." So we sang the "Who built the ark?" song from the Wee Sing Bible Songs cd. (#29)
I hope this review lesson is helpful to you in some way! I'm gonna go on a hunt for our Bible verse cards and plan a new lesson for next time!
Bye for now!
