When One Teaches, Two Learn

New Year’s Resolutions Aren’t That Bad

on January 16, 2013

I used to make new year’s resolutions when I was a kid.  They weren’t always well thought-out, but I still made them.  And, like most people, I rarely kept my resolutions.  As the years passed, I gave up making new year’s resolutions.  I think it was mostly due to the fact that I wanted to make meaningful, attainable resolutions, rather than just making resolutions for the sake of making them.  This year, for the first time in a long while, I came up with a resolution that was worth keeping.  I’ve decided that starting this year I’m going to work in some sort of activity toward the end of each children’s church lesson for the kids to show what they’ve learned.  The activities will take on different forms depending on the lesson and vary to keep the kids’ interest.

For the past two Sundays, we’ve used this activity with sticky notes.  The kids could either write or draw a picture of something that “stuck” with them during the lesson.  I really love this idea, especially because the littlest ones really got into it!  There are quite a few little pictures on those sticky notes!

What Stuck with You?

 

This week we’re going to start a four-week series called Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner based on a set of lessons from Ministry-to-Children.com.  At the end of each lesson, we are going to take a paper plate and cover it with short phrases or pictures that summarize what we learned.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
