Cathy's Corner: The Prodigal Son

This week from Cathy, I re-created her Prodigal Son sets. There is a lesson, posters, visuals, worksheet and a cute review game I can't wait to use!
Cathy uses these visuals with a magnetic board. She cuts the pieces out, numbers them on the back (these already have the numbers on the front, laminates them and adds thin magnets on the back. Put your title up first, then add and take away each visual as you teach the lesson. They can also be used as visuals alone, a flip chart, and/or a bulletin board. Click here to download the visuals.
This download also includes two posters for Parables. These can be used with any of the Parables lessons. One is the original meaning of Parables and the other is what Cathy has in lesson. Click here to download the visuals.
Cathy also has this review set. I am not sure how she uses it, but I will use it as a game for something different. After printing, cut and laminate. I will put the corn in a basket and spread the pigs around on green or brown felt like they are in a pig pen. The students can read the questions and feed the pigs the corn with the correct answer. Click here to print.
I also created this worksheet to use with my class and since I used the same graphic, I added it to this post. This is a Venn style review worksheet. You can ask the questions and the students fill in whatever answers they think of. This includes the color and black & white worksheet and a teacher's answer sheet to help you begin. Click here to download this set of worksheets.
This is the lesson that has the numbers to use with the above visuals. The lesson can also be used without the above visuals. Click here to download the lesson.

  1. Cathy,
    I love the redemption story of the prodigal son! Even as an adult it resonates with me and my life. I am so thankful for God's amazing grace! I will have to share this with mom for all her grandchildren! May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors!
