The Battle of Jericho 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 battle of Jericho from Joshua 6: 1- 25.   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.

Matthew 19:26b “with God all things are possible.”

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

Encourage your child to build the city of Jericho with lego blocks and tell you the story using lego people.

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

Let your child listen to a story about the fall of Jericho from kidscorner http://www.kidscorner.net/bible/stories/joshua-and-the-battle-of-jericho/  You will also find a color page corresponding to the story.

Do an online crossword puzzle or jigsaw puzzle from the Garden of Praise featuring the battle of Jericho.
