This quarter features a study of Daniel, I and II Timothy, Ezra, and Nehemiah. In this biblical exposition of key sections of Scripture, believers of all ages learn timeless messages of God's faithfulness and our response of faithful service in return.
First and second graders (typically ages 6-7) are fun to teach, as it is exciting to see the “light bulb” moments when they get what is being taught. This group is ready to move past basic facts and start grasping concepts that go beyond mere echoing of “Our God is one.” Age-appropriate crafts, games, discussion questions, and Bible stories will lead them to understand in their hearts and minds that our God is one! As God’s story is told through active interaction such as puppet skits, drama role-play, echoing, and expressive storytelling, your beginners will learn that they too are key players in His story today. Options to include every learning style (e.g., music, logic, movement, introspection) somewhere in the session allow the teacher to pick and choose what will work best for the students’ capabilities.
In addition to a Beginner Teacher’s Manual for each teacher, Word Aflame recommends one Beginner Activity Paper per student, as well as one Beginner Resource Packet per class. When you purchase the teacher’s manual, you will find an access code inside that allows you to download free digital versions (PDFs and Word documents) of the manual for study on the go through your electronic devices.
