Activity 2 (2012): Story of Elijah, God, and Baal in 1 Kings 18A *brand new* Bible game to share withyou today, its called "Break Through":http://www.teachsundayschool.com/breakthrough.htmlUse this Bible game when telling the storyof Elijah, God, and Baal in 1 Kings 18.1) Its Active. (A life saver when the kids are restless)2) No Materials Are Needed. (No last minute trips to the store)3) Its Great For ALL ages.

  6. 6. Activity 3 (2012): EasterBecause EASTER is just around the corner and itstime to start planning if you teach Sunday School.Heres what Ive got in the works for Easter 2012:http://www.teachsundayschool.com/easter.htmlEasters a "tricky" holiday for kids becauseof the mature themes.I struggled for years trying to figure outthe best way to introduce children to thestory of Jesus death and resurrection.After all, theres more to Easter than bunnies,baskets, eggs, and jellybeans.I finally came up with a way to teach children aboutthe true story of Easter at an *age appropriatelevel*.My approach is a little bit "different",but I think youre going to be excited to givethis idea a try:http://www.teachsundayschool.com/easter.html 5 Activity 3 (2012): Easter | Shalom Christian Education Ministry
  7. 7. Activity 4 (2012): Memory VersesHere are 3 fun ways to help kids learn memory verses:http://www.teachsundayschool.com/memory2.htmlAt the website above, youll learn:1) Index Card Mad Dash (A Hands-On Game)2) Point It Out Mural Making (A Visual Game)3) Beatle Mania (An Auditory Game)Im a strong believer in teaching childrenmemory verses, but my #1 rule is that we haveto have fun while we learn.Being the "Big Kid" that I am, I always turnto games as my favorite teaching tool.You wont need any special materials, all thegames can be done with stuff youve alreadygot hanging around the house :-)Plus, you can use all 3 games for ANY verse!(these "memory tricks" also help kids withtheir regular schoolwork, not just Bible study) 6 Activity 4 (2012): Memory Verses | Shalom Christian Education Ministry
  8. 8. Activity 5 (2012): SkitsSkits are one of my all time favorite teaching tools.A hilarious original Bible skit called"Solomon Gets the Gold" to share with you today:http://www.teachsundayschool.com/skits.htmlIm a huge fan of skits because they are SO FLEXIBLE.Ive used the Solomon Gets the Gold skits with kidsranging in age from 5-18!(I show you how to use skits with various age groupsat the site above- even the little guys who cant read yet).Ive got 3 rules when selecting a skit to use in class:1) Its gotta be short, yet message driven.2) I dont have time for hours of prep or rehearsal.3) The Script has to be written for TODAYS children.This skit meets all 3 of my requirements:http://www.teachsundayschool.com/skits.html 7 Activity 5 (2012): Skits | Shalom Christian Education Ministry
