Preschool Alphabet: E is for Ezekiel

These preschool Bible lessons are created and used at home, so there are some basic preschool learning skills printables added to each post. The Bible lesson and Bible printables are suitable for home or Bible class use. This week is E for Ezekiel. We also talked about their bodies and that led to the skeletons!
Ezekiel was a prophet of God in the Old Testament. One day, God went to him in a vision (dream). God showed Ezekiel a valley that was full of dry bones (skeletons).

There was a great noise! There was a rattling sound and all at once the bones started to come together!  First bone to bone, and the bones knew which bones to attach themselves to! Once the skeleton was together, then the sinews formed, then muscle, and finally skin to cover all the bones. These looked like living bodies! What was the one thing that was missing? They were not breathing.

God told Ezekiel to tell them to breathe. Ezekiel did as God commanded and the bones became alive and stood up on their feet! A very large army! An army to serve! (Vs. 9-10)

The people of Israel felt like they were as 'The army of bones, all dried up and unable to fight', but God said He would bring His people back together as a  nation. (vs. 11-14)
I laid a piece of felt out to look like land and put the skeletons on it. The ones I found at Dollar Tree are Glow-in-the-Dark, so extra fun for the kids! At the rattling sound, they picked up their skeleton and shook it. I briefly talked about the bones their bodies have, then talked about their skin. God created it all!
Ezekiel and the Valley of Dry Bones is found in Ezekiel 37:1-14. I decided to change the letter order so we could use the Cheetos Bag of Bones I found at Wal Mart. I plan to use them in my Sunday morning Bible class and we used them for the letter X for X-Ray. They are really that much fun! You can find free worksheets here to use with the Cheetos Bag of Bones.
E is for Eagle... and is my very favorite animal!
E is for Eggs. We did a couple of projects for eggs. The letter E will go in their books, but the Hen on a Ten Eggs they will take home. I purchased the Hen on a Ten here and purchased egg stickers to use with it. You can find the e is for egg here.
E is for Elephant. Download the free E is for elephant and the elephant templates here. Also, you will find the free Alphabet Hats here.
E is for Elf and I purchased this in a pack here.

I found a lot of the alphabet letter ideas and projects on Pinterest.
You can also more on my Ezekiel Pinterest board here.
The lesson is a condensed version (written by Debbie Jackson) of the lesson written by Cathy Whitacre found at the above link and is written to be more suitable for preschool children.
This is the post that I used the Cheetos Bag of Bones with more ideas for Ezekiel!
