For Bible verse memorization, I write the word on the board and we read it aloud together. Then I erase a few words and we read it aloud together. Erase a few more words and read it aloud. Keep doing that till the board is completely erased and the kids can recite it without help.

Puppets are always great fun. The kids can make them using old socks and do a little puppet show from Bible stories. God bless.

I have a few ideas. Don't be so religious. Be somewhat of a kid yourself. Have fun with the children. People get the wrong ideas about us in ministry. So just fix your eyes on Jesus and you will know what to do, how to do, when to do, in His timeing. So relax.

Hello, I'm the sunday super at my church and I have too many ideas to post here on account I don't want to take over your blog. Three quick thoughts.
1. Ask the children for their input; children are smart and see things different than we do.
2. Don't be afraid to try something new; if it doesn't work out children forgive you much faster than adults.
3. Be creative; room themes; visuals; video clips. Something other than sit and listen to me kind of stuff.

One thing my class does is when reading a Bible story, certain words in the story have an action the kids must do when they here the word. Like when doing Jericho, whenever I say Israelites, the kids had to get up and march. Sometimes I have the kids divide up into groups, and each group has to act out the story, or make a picture book about it or we have even done the story using playdoh people. Oh and if you ever do the red sea parting, blue jello made on a cookie sheet separartes really cool.

The Bible is the best book you could use. Teach Who God is-Eternal with no beginning or end,Designer and Creator of all things, Organized- setting a foundation and building on it, Holy- without sin, Righteous-everything He does is correct, etc.Start in Genisis with the creation- first 3 days foundation second 3 building on foundation.1-day/night, 2sky/sea, 3-land/plants; 4-builds on 1 sun/moon/stars; 5- builds on 2 fish/birds; 6 builds on 3-animals and mankind; then He rested to set an example for us.

try these books I use it with my children with worship at home ages 8, 9, 13 boys and girls and they enjoy them "Bedtime Blessings" by john trent PhD (don't let the bedtime fool ya), and "What Should I Believe? is there really a God" by Phil A amouse. My children even ask to do worship sometimes. These books have good ideas and games all to do with the Lord.

Part 1 of 3

I would hope that your are using a formal Church School curriculum tailored to the age groups you teach. A K-5 program should use one curriculum and there are a lot of good church school curriculums on the market and they come with teacher guides and recourse support information. Your class room age grouping will be dependent upon number of purples, classroom space and the number of trained teachers per time block of instruction.

Part 2 of 3

I deplore teaching Bible verse memorization as you are teaching a abominable habit of taking scripture out of context. When you take scripture out of context it becomes a pretext for false teaching. It is also a form of blasphemy for it diminishes the word of God which is only valid when studies and interpreted in proper textual context.

Part 3 of 3

Rather teach your students to read a block of scripture and tell you in their own word what it means. Teach them where blocks of important scripture are located in the Bible and exercise them in finding it. Songs, some craft projects, skits keep your instruction program from becoming stale. There are some excellent church school resources for computers with or with out internet connection.

kids this age like to sing songs with actions to them. And the greatest thing about kids is, they will think you are a great singer when you sing loud and do the actions too. If you are doing memory verses, an easy way to do it, is write the verse on the blackboard, say it together a couple of times and then start erasing the words one or two at atime, until you can get all the words erased and they can still say the verse. Oh my your gonna love teaching, have fun with it. God Bless!
