Can you believe that this is week 18 of the Come Follow Me curriculum? Over the past months I have made a specific and diligent effort to teach our children from the bible in the New Testament in our home. I can honestly say, it has not been easy but it has been worth it! There is a positive change in our home that I almost can’t describe. There is an added measure of the spirit. Keep doing, keep trying, keep teaching and keep learning of our Savior. Blessings will come!
This week you will study Luke 15 and read the three stories it holds. As part of this you get to play a game. Be sure to follow the directions on your summary sheet for this lesson. I promise that teaching this portion how it is suggested will make learning positive and enjoyable. It allows for wiggle breaks between reading and my kids LOVED the game.
Included this week in the materials are three mazes. These are to help children understand and connect finding lost things. The mazes, you will notice, are for different ages. There is one that is simple. medium level and challenging for older kids. Watch my Instagram stories for more details and age suggestions for each.
My kids enjoyed these! My two year old and nine year old were both excited and a bit challenged by them. These cute mazes were a hit this week!
Another part of this week is the 10 Lepers. Watch the video or read the story from the bible. In our home my oldest son studied the mystery scripture story before hand then taught the story to the family on his own. That was incredible to see! Make sure you use that scripture story! It is a great tool, comes once a month, to teach children how to study and learn from the scriptures.
The next part of the lesson is fun! Take a look at a few pictures and you can get excited about using this activity in your home. Again, my kids loved it! We are even starting Gratitude Journals later this week, not pictured. I encourage you to do the same. Refer to your lesson materials for all the details.
You can choose to use the paper jars to cut and paste, big or small size. You could also use a real jar and fill with the paper candies or real candies. Your choice! Be creative and make it fun!
