Joseph Preschool Projects

Saturday, November 21, 2015
I am creating projects for the 3 year old class on Wednesday nights this quarter, and I thought I would share what we did. Joseph is divided into 2 lessons.
For the lesson about Joseph, we talked about Joseph as a boy. Yes, there are LOTS of ideas and printables for Joseph's coat. But, that is what I wanted to create! I had decided to let them use paint for something different to do. This can be colored also. Download the Coat of Many Colors Worksheet here. But, after asking the students how many of them had used paint before, I decided to make our life easier and use the Dot Markers to make the coat of many colors! They love them anyway!

I also took in my Joseph's Coat visual for them to try on and see the different
colors for their paper. We acted the lesson out for review and I also hade a money bag for them to take home. This type of bag here. And coins from here.
The kids loved the map for Abraham! When I used it for review the next week, the ones that hadn't been in class the week before, really wanted one! So, I decided to add this map with this lesson. This can also be used for the next lesson. Everything is printed directly on the map. The download includes the color and the black & white map to print. I printed the black & white on to paper that looks like a scroll for the students and the color for the teacher's visual. I used ribbon to tie it together after they rolled it.

I really couldn't decide on this project, but I really wanted something fun and different. I realize a lot of you will not want to use this project because there is some prep time for this age group. But, I think the kids are worth it! And, they loved it!

So, I made this box to look like a pizza box as a reminder that Joseph was storing food for the bad years. I just printed one box template and used it as a pattern to cut the boxes out of this Kraft cardstock at Hobby Lobby. It is a heavier cardstock and perfect for this project. Also, it is much easier if you have a paper cutter that has a scoring blade. It will make everything faster and straight.

I printed one in color for a teacher's visual, and printed the kids papers in black & white so they could color. I had everything cut out and prepped in each box ready to hand out. Once the kids colored their backgrounds, they glued them to the box. With the finger puppets they colored, they could move Joseph, Pharaoh and the others to each background to retell us their Bible lesson. So much fun! This includes the color and black & white.
