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.
Today we learned about The Day the Sun Stood Still from Joshua 9:1 – 27, 10: 1 – 14. 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.
Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”
Sing “Be Bold and Be Strong” by the Donut Man, or “What Seems Impossible” by Mary Rice Hopkins
Have your child use Lego people to act out the story as in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPIfk4izEPA
