In Deuteronomy 6:7 Moses encourages us to teach our children about theLord when we talk, sit, walk, lie down, and wake up. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. (NASB) Deut. 6:6-7New Testament. In the New Testament, the concept of Christian education is repeated inEph. 4:11-13 and in Col. 1:28. We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. (NASB) Col. 1:28 2 Shalom Christian Education Ministry Fall – 2012 Teacher Coaching Guide

  • Christian Teachers - Teach by ExampleTeachers should live what they teach. Dorothy Nolte shows that children frequently learn simplyby watching their teachers or role models. As she says: "If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight. If a child lives with pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself. If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy. If a child lives with jealousy, he learns to hate. If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty. If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident. If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient. If a child lives with praise, he learns to be appreciative. If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love. If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself. If a child lives with recognition, he learns to have a goal. If a child lives with sharing, he learns about generosity. If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice. If a child lives with honesty, he learns what truth is. If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith in himself. If a child lives with friendliness, he learns that the world is a nice place to live in."(Dorothy Nolte, "Children Learn What They Live," Scouting Magazine (April, 1964), page 31,as quoted in The Teaching Ministry of the Church, page 114. 4 Shalom Christian Education Ministry Fall – 2012 Teacher Coaching Guide
  • Teaching-Learning Process The teaching-learning process is a two way endeavor. Both the teacher and the students have a part and responsibility in the process, keeping the Word of God central in all they do, with the ultimate goal being changed lives.Articles, Online: How Kids Learn Best Implications for the Involvement Learning Method Make People Think Teaching for Changed Lives - Goal for Bible Teachers Ten Marks of Great Teaching The Method of the Master The 7 Laws of the Learner Ways Jesus Involved His LearnersBooks – for purchase, if you choose for your personal growth: Creative Bible Teaching by Lawrence O.

  • Children, youth, and adults each have unique needs and developmental abilities. Content and methodology must be geared to students age level characteristics.Tips for Teaching Multi-Age GroupsWorking with multi-age groups can be a rewarding and very positive experience for everyoneinvolved—especially if you plan ahead. A variety of curriculum products have been designed so kids ofages Kindergarten-Grade 6 participate together. All children need an opportunity to make importantcontributions, participate in fun and meaningful activities, and discuss how to apply the Bible truths totheir lives. Here are a few suggestions that will prepare you for a successful multi-age encounter:Remember that older kids can easily mentor or coach younger ones, which will provide for amore meaningful opportunity for all ages. Children also like responsibility and want to feel important.Let older children supervise, help, and guide younger children in the group. Give these children tasksthat require more skill and creativity, and ask questions that promote deeper thinking.Pair two students together and create a buddy system. This helps prevent any child from feelingleft out or isolated. It also promotes relationship building and teaches kids to listen to and cooperatewith one another.As you create signs and other instructions, keep in mind the younger ones who cannot read yet.You might use pictures for signs or communicate instructions verbally.All children need movement, action, and motion!Dont worry about certain discussion questions going over the head of some children. Theywill easily catch onto what is being said by listening to how older children respond.Give everyone an opportunity to succeed! Each child should feel important, loved, and special.Choose Activity Stations that provide something for various age levels.Provide kids with enough time to accomplish tasks, complete goals, and think about questionsbefore having to answer them.Praise the group for their ability to cooperate, work together, and successfully complete a goal.Assign one Team Time Helper for every 8-10 children to assist where needed.Remember with content that it is better to stretch younger children than to bore older children. 7 Shalom Christian Education Ministry Fall – 2012 Teacher Coaching Guide
  • Games as Bible Learning Activities Games are a fun way to review or reinforce knowledge. They can also be used to teach or practice a skill (i.e., how to use a Bible) or to help with memorization. Games may help develop problem-solving skills. They also provide opportunity to develop social and communication skills.

I first used it to help some of my foster children to use positive words – a great need! Object Freeze Tag Game: This is a fun spin on classic tag. With a few simple items you can make it work in your VBS or children’s ministry. Captain Midnight Game for Kids Ministry: This is a large group game that works best if you have a gym or outside area. “That’s Impossible” Game for Children’s Church: This basketball inspired game will teach kids they need Jesus’ help to obey the Bible.More Children’s Church Games 9 Classic Group Games for Kids: You don’t need to start from scratch with every game. Try one of the classics and add your own twist. With a little creative thinking, these could be tied in with your teaching. Kid’s Sunday School Place lists 20+ game ideas for children’s church, plus many more in their membership areas. Some of these games will require you to plan ahead. I recommend having several games always on standby for when you need them. This website is a solid resource and very user friendly. eBibleTeacher has several pages of learning activities that features several helpful review games for children’s church lessons. These are more on the educational side rather than the energy- burning sort of games. Children’s Church Games is a whole website dedicated to games for children’s ministry. Unfortunately the selection is somewhat limited. But if you check it out you will find several good ideas. Children’s Church Ministry lists several games for children’s church. The selection is small, but I’m linking it just in case you need more ideas. 8 Shalom Christian Education Ministry Fall – 2012 Teacher Coaching Guide
