David is Anointed to be King 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 how David was chosen to be king from 1 Samuel 16.   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.

“Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7b



Sing the song “Shepherd Boy” with your child.

Shepherd Boy  

One by one Jesse’s sons

Stood before the prophet

Their father knew a king

Would soon be found

And each one passed

Except the last

No one thought to call him

Surely he would never

Wear a crown


But when others see a shepherd boy

God may see a king

Even though your life seems filled

With ordinary things

In just a moment He can touch you

And everything will change

When others see a shepherd boy

God may see a king

One by one problems come

And dreams get shattered

And sometimes it’s hard

To understand

But things like chance

And circumstance

They don’t really matter

Our Father holds tomorrow

In His hands


Well it wasn’t the oldest

It wasn’t the strongest

Chosen on that day

And yet the giants fell

And nations trembled

When they stood in his way
