Jacob and Esau

Bible ABC's: Y is for Youngest
Jacob (& Esau)
These lessons can be used without the alphabet theme.
Consider these an update with new ideas and printables!
So... I kinda went rogue and as I was writing the lesson! I couldn't stop because it seemed like chapters 25-28 all flow together. Each section is short, but is usually divided... especially for younger students. Although this contains the stew trade, the blessing switch and Jacob's ladder dream, they can be divided by chapter. Or, taught as one lesson.
The Fact Wheel briefly reviews their birth, the stew trade and the birthright event. Color and black & white are included.
These can be used for Jacob and any other appropriate lesson and were kept plain intentionally for this purpose. These are a reminder that God is there for us. Students can color or paint the designs on the banner, door hanger and bookmark. Stickers can be added. String or ribbon can be added to the banner to hang and on the bookmark.
A Word Search for chapters 25-28 is included.
A stew maze, dot-to-dot and a puzzle are included.
The puzzle has been updated with the stew food and standups. 

 The first is a Reader Worksheet and is divided into the three sections by chapter. This can be used as one worksheet, or review, or if you are dividing the lesson, each section can be used as needed. The wording from the scripture is as easy to read as possible with sight words while keeping to the key points with easy to answer questions. The second is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet. This is sectioned by the number.  Black & white only.
I designed the Trip Strip to be a cut & glue timeline. This one shown has lines for the students to write about each event. Or, they can write the scriptures. There is another worksheet without the writing space. These can easily be used for mixed age groups. Cut and glue according to directions.
This is not included in the application pack. 

These Event Cards can be used as smaller visuals and they can be shuffled for the student to re-tell the events and lay them in order. The same full-page size visuals and pictures-to-color can be downloaded below.
There are alphabet mazes and worksheets included. These are half-sheets and can be used in Interactive Notebooks. Click here to see a free video on how to make and use Interactive Notebooks. There is a set of 5 and 10 piece puzzles.
I added this Flip Book because the students love them, and the foldable book below does not include Jacob's dream in chapter 28. It includes the color and black & white.

There is a one-page foldable book in color and black and white.
This does not include Jacob's ladder dream.
These pages can also be cut apart and used as flash cards to put the events in order.

  1. Hi! I could not find the download for the gorgeous Jacob & Esau fact wheel - please advise

  2. Do you know how long the fact wheel Link will take to get approval? I would love to use it next weekend but if not going to be available I will make another plan.
