Sunday School God Keeps His Promises

Sunday School Lesson 11: God Keeps His Promises This is the last of three lessons about Noah. You can view the first lesson in the series here and the second lesson here. The aim of this third lesson was to show our kiddos that God can be trusted to keep His promises! Last week, we saw how Noah and his family got ready to board the ark and how God was involved in that process. This week, we started by taking talking about about Noah, his family and all the animals that had boarded the ark. God had just closed the door to the ark behind them and they were waiting to see what would happen. Would it start to rain, just as God had said? Suddenly, they heard a great roar of thunder and lightning flashed across the sky and it started to rain. And it rained and rained and rained. We were curious to see what Mr and Mrs. Noah were doing inside the ark. Were they scared by the thunder and lighting? Nope! They did not look one but worried or scared. In fact, they looked quite happy; God had kept them safe from the coming waters and they knew God would continue to be with them. They had nothing to fear because they knew God was with them. We then went on to talk about the rain stopping and how Noah became excited that they would soon be able to get off the ark. Noah decided to send a dove to look for dry land. I printed the dove pictured below, attached it to an icy-pole / popsicle stick and demonstrates the its flight in search of dry land. I asked some kiddos to help the dove fly all around the classroom in search of some land. All it found was a small little olive tree and it broke a leaf off from it, then flew with the leaf back to Noah, who was waiting on the ark. Noah knew that it wouldn’t be long until the ground would be dry enough for them. So, some days later, Noah sent the dove out again, and this time, it didn’t return; Noah knew this meant that he had found dry land! It was time to get off the boat and everyone was so excited! Noah and his family were thankful that God had kept them safe and Noah built an altar and praised God. We explained to our little dears what an altar looked like and that it was a way to say... read more

Back to School Math Centers for Kindergarten

Back to School Math Centers for Kindergarten I finished updating this packet only a couple of days ago and hurried to take some photos to show you all what’s included! So, here we go! PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Back to School Math Centers for Kindergarten packet. You can download the free sample pages by click on the photos. To purchase the complete Back to School Math Centers for Kindergarten packet, please click here! As with all my Kindergarten Centers packet, I have included an “I can” instructions for each activity to remind your kiddos what to do, as well as a cover label that you can put on the front of whatever it is that you are storing your pieces inside. I believe that learning to form letters and numbers correctly from the beginning is extremely important and will save teachers so much headache trying to re-teach it later in the year! For that reason, the first activity is a number tracing activity. I laminated and cut the cards apart, but if you prefer, you can leave the cards uncut and simply laminate the page or slip it inside a plastic sleeve to make an activity that children can use over and over again. Next up, is a count and clip activity. Kiddos simply count the number of items on a given card and clip the correct numeral to show their answer. Using pegs is fantastic for helping kiddos to develop those little finger muscles in preparation for writing! I have included recording pages for each of the activities in this packet; however, there’s no drama if you decide not to use them! Then, there is a Missing Number activity. If some of your kiddos are struggling to write numbers, provide them with small magnetic number for the activity and then number stamps to record their answers on the recording page. The next activity is a pattern building activity. I included 4 pattern types (AB, AAB, ABB, AABB), but if your kiddos are struggling to understand them all so early in the year, you can whip them out later on! Representing data on a graph isn’t really all that complicated; it’s just another way of showing “how many” your kiddos counted. Next up, is a simple ten frame and number matching activity. Ideally, you want your kiddos to have so much practice with this that as soon as they see a ten frame, they will automatically know the number represented. I have also included some number puzzles.... read more
