Sunday School Promises for Abraham

Sunday School Lesson 13: Promises for Abraham This week’s lesson was a super fun one for our little ones! The focus was on God’s promises, so we started by talking about a promise that we had learnt a couple of weeks before. We remember that God had made a promise to Noah to save him and his family from the flood and we saw that God had kept that promise. Then, after the flood was over, God promised Noah to never destroy the world through a flood and God put a rainbow in the sky as a sign of that promise. God kept this promise, too. We explained to our kiddos that whenever we see a rainbow in the sky, we should can remember that God is faithful: when He says He will do something, He will definitely, without a doubt, do it. We then introduced one of Noah’s great, great, great, great, great, great, great, grandchildren: Abraham. We read pages 39-45 from our Beginner’s Bible, and then we retold the story to make it come alive for our kiddos. Our retelling started with God telling Abraham to move to a new land. We spoke about the uncertainty of the journey that lay ahead, and that he would have needed to pack some things. I had brought in a small suitcase with some travelling items (clothes, toiletries, food, sleeping things, etc.) and I took them out one by one to show the kids. They loved calling out the name of each item. We then spoke about the journey. We asked the children to stand up and follow behind a pretend Abraham, Sarah and Lot. Before we started our class that day, we had arranged a few mini “obstacles” (an overturned chair, pile of books, etc.) around the room. As we traveled, we made sure to avoid all the obstacles by going around them or jumping over them. After a long, long time and a few minutes of us following a pretend leader, we finally reached out destination. Before class had started, we had also made a fort using blankets, chairs and some pegs (you can find the directions from eHow here.) We explained that Abraham and Sarah didn’t live in a house like we do, but in a tent. We then all went inside the tent. I don’t even need to tell you how much they enjoyed this part of the activity. We then dimmed the lights and told the next part of the story which, unfortunately, hadn’t been included in the Beginner’s Bible… Abraham... read more

Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten

Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten Hey all! I’m back again to show you the activities included in the Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten. PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten packet. You can download the free sample pages by clicking on the photos. To purchase the complete Thanksgiving Math Centers for Kindergarten packet, please click here! Let’s just jump right into it! Contents: 1. Thanksgiving count and clip cards. These are basic counting cards that require kiddos to clip a peg on the correct answer and then record their answers on the recording page provided. 2. Turkey counting on (1-10). This activity’s level of difficulty gradually increases. Kiddos start off by writing a couple of the missing numbers on the first handful of cards and then, by the last handful, they are given only the starting number or a middle number, from which they have to count on (and count backwards). 3. Thanksgiving Which has More? clip cards. Kiddos simply clip the box that contains the most items. On the recording page, they color either the top of bottom box to show where they clipped. 4. Thanksgiving Which has Less? clip cards. This is the same as the “Which has More” activity, only the focus is on the box with the least number of items. 5. Thanksgiving count and graph (1-8). Kiddos simply count the number of items and represent their findings on the bar graph below and then by writing the total number on the recording page. 6. Turkey number match. This is a super cute turkey activity to help your children with different number representations. 7. Thanksgiving number puzzles (skip counting by 10s). This is a great activity not only for number sequence, but also comparing numbers to determine the first number with which to begin the sequence. 8. Turkey addition. Kiddos need to work out the sum of each equation and then sort it to the correct turkey. On the recording sheet, for your higher kiddos, you could ask them to write one different equation. 9. Build a Thanksgiving pattern (AB/ABB/AAB/ABC). Kiddos build the start of the pattern and then figure out what the missing picture is. 10. Turkey clip the shape cards. This is an easy way to help your kiddos recognise shapes. 11. Thanksgiving non standard measurement. I have included a turkey measuring strip for this activity, but decided to use Unifix cubes this time around. 12. Thanksgiving Which weighs More? clip cards. This is similar to the What has More/Less activities. 13. Thanksgiving... read more
