Psalm 23 by David the Shepherd

This post is about a Psalm that David wrote. David wrote over 70 Psalms in the Bible. A psalm is a song or a poem. Psalm 23 is a well known psalm that David wrote.
This review project can be done a couple of different ways. But, the basic review is the same. I have Psalm 23 divided and printed on sheep. The kids will put the sheep in the order of the scripture. Click here to print.
The next is how I used it for class. I really like file folder games, especially for home use. I make a lot of them. But, I decided to use grass scrapbook paper for the layout, added a title and let the kids put the sheep in order on the paper I purchased. I ended up finding 12x12 grass paper that worked better than the 8.5x11. You could use the paper for the inside of the FFG if you want to. Also, you can have the kids draw grass for a background. You can download everything but the paper by clicking here.
There is also this Shepherd FFG if you have preschoolers. Click on the picture to see more.
I also used this bulletin board. Everything is Carson-Dellosa. Here is the grass.
The bulletin board is not being sold anymore, and it seems to be out of stock.

This is a small set, it is printed on both sides. If you are teaching preschool, it would be a great mobile. #NS 1101 Shepherd & Sheep.

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
