The Triumphal Entry of Jesus & The Lord's Supper

Saturday, October 25, 2014
The printable for this lesson are Life of Jesus Task cards and they are cards that can be used for Life of Jesus review or... more ideas are listed! We are getting to the end of the life of Jesus, and I have divided the next several lessons more than I originally planned.

IFA: Investigating Bible Facts in Acts Supplies

Wednesday, October 22, 2014
There were so many great items for sale this Spring for VBS that had to do with Investigators! I started at Hobby Lobby and my head just filled with all kinds of ideas! Then, Oriental Trading had a lot, so I had even more ideas in my head! Then, Lifeway had their VBS with the Agency D3, and I found some items in their store! Since I thought Investigating Bible Facts is a great idea anyway, I decided to teach the 30 weeks of Acts with this theme. I will have bulletin boards, worksheets and different ideas for this. When I can, I will have the idea usable for any Bible lessons, not just Acts.  

Parable of the Lost Sheep & Lost Coin

Saturday, October 18, 2014
This is such a fun lesson! I love watching the kids enjoy learning the Bible and they love this one! I like teaching most of the parables, but The Prodigal Son and this one seems to be favorites! There are sheep and coin printables that are scriptures that you can hide or shuffle for the kids to put in order.

Investigating Facts in Acts: Bulletin Boards & Posters

Wednesday, October 15, 2014 
I made all new bulletin boards and posters to go with Investigating Facts in Acts (IFA). I realize that investigating, detectives and secret agents are not a new concept, but I did use the graphics that I could find to create new ideas and printables for the book of Acts and Life of Paul.

Parable of the Rich Fool, the Hidden Treasure & the Pearl of Great Price

Saturday, October 11, 2014
This week's lesson are three parables from Jesus. These are the visuals I set up. The barn is a bird house I found at a craft store and painted. I found the grain stalks during the fall and added some Fisher Price fencing and more bales of grain. The Pearl of Great Price is a basket with larger (8 mm) pearl beads. The treasure is a wood box that I found at Hobby Lobby. I just used brown fabric  (or felt or actual dirt). I let the students have a treasure chest, added a pearl bead and a grain stalk. Then, add stickers of Jesus, the Bible, Heaven and discuss what real treasure is.

Here are photos to use for ideas for bulletin boards. These bulletin boards are photos from my niece Nicole Whitacre. Thanks for letting me post the photos! I do not have any printables for Nicole's boards, they are just for you to get ideas.

Parable of the Good Samaritan
This week's parable is the Good Samaritan. There is a foldable for the review project. The kids will love it! It is fun and easy, but you can discuss so many different neighbor things and make it work for several Bible lessons.

Special thanks to Nicole Whitacre for permitting me to use her Jacob & Joseph wall decorating photos! As with all of Nicole's photos, there are not any printables, just the pictures to give you   ideas to decorate your classroom for teaching Bible facts. This quarter was Jacob and Joseph.
