Cathy's Corner: King Saul is Killed

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
This week is lesson number 9 for the David series. King Saul and his son Jonathan is killed.
David is also made king.
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 (King Saul & Philistines for this lesson), then add and take away each visual as you teach the lesson. Some of the visuals are the same as what you will see each week during the David series, if you'd like to combine them.  You won't have to print all of those, unless you like to keep everything in its own pack. They can also be used as visuals alone, a flip chart, and/or a bulletin board. These can also be attached to large craft sticks and held up while you are teaching.
I wrote this lesson using the outline that Cathy uses for the set of Magnetic Board Visuals. The numbers in the lesson download correspond with the numbers on the visuals. The lesson can also be used without the visuals. Click here to download.
 These printables were also created for this lesson, but they can be used for so many lessons that I put them in their own post! You can see them here.
