Parable of the Sower Parents’ Page

Use the parents’ page as a way to keep in touch with parents, to keep them informed of what you are teaching, and to encourage them to continue reinforcing the lesson at home. Use this template as a starting point. Make it your own by telling them how the children responded to the lesson or something funny that happened.  You could substitute any activity suggestions that you think would be appropriate for parents to do with their children at home.

Dear Parents,

Today we learned about the Parable of the Sower from Mark 4:1-20.   Help to reinforce the lesson to your child this week by talking to him or her about the lesson and helping him or her learn the memory verse.

Here are a few activity ideas…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Help your child memorize the verse.

James 1:22  “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Teach your child the song  “I Wanna Be Good Ground” by Bible Story Songs.  You can find it on i-tunes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Show your child this beautiful slide show of the story by Earnest Graham. http://lookbothwaysartandfaith.blogspot.com/2008/06/parable-project-2-sower.html
