Review of Paul's Life
This is the last lesson for the book of Acts! This is a review of the life of Paul. There is a booklet that I have used and have the kids flip through the pages with me and as I am telling the Bible lesson, I hand out a little item that will hopefully remind them of that part of Paul's life. They put the items in their Fact Bags to take home. This is another of the kid's favorite lessons!

Paul Gets Bit by a Snake on Malta
I purchased the bigger pretzels, tied 4 together and wound in a stretchy snake with it's head peeking out! More directions at the end of lesson.

Life of Jesus Printables

I made this booklet for home use for preschoolers, but I can think of so many different uses for it!

Just an update!

Hello, I wanted to let you know, that I will post the next book of Acts lesson early next week. I was sick last week and someone else taught Bible class last week for me. She wanted me to keep the fun at home and not use my visuals!

But, there is a lot of behind the scenes going on here! First, a big thank you to Renee for the help telling me how to make a blog button step by step! She made it so easy! I kinda want to make a button for everything! I love this one, since it reminds me of everything God created! I even added an eagle, which I love and miss seeing since we moved south! But, the no snow here is worth it!

There hasn't been much for preschool added, because I have spent all my time updating the next quarter! I have made teacher's visuals for most of the lessons coming up, since there isn't much online to print yourself.
We will be doing letters From Paul, which will include lessons from Paul's letters, like The Armor of God (I can't wait), Fruit of the Spirit (yes, there's a lot out there for this one already!), Love, Run the Race, etc.

So, the next quarter is all set and ready to let you see, but I will add it each week! Next, on my list of Gotta-Get-It-Done! is VBS. We are doing Athens this year and I have been working on the bulletin boards for my classroom for that. My dad is not doing well, so I am trying to get as far ahead as I can so I am not panicking when I have to go out of state. I am working on the last board for VBS, then I can start on the next year's material! I am just doing the bulletin boards instead of the whole walls this year because of everything that is happening personally this year.
Our classes switch in June, and we teach the kids for a year. I will have the same kids that are in first grade now, and will be second graders, so I have gotten the approval to teach the Old Testament for the year! YAH! So, starting in June, (assuming all is OK with my family), I will teach a quarter of Creation, then Moses, then the last half of the year will be Bible People in the Old Testament.
And, Oh, by the way, this is my 100th post!! I didn't even know until I hapened to notice it later!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it!
