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 breakfast that Jesus had with his disciples on the shore of Galilee from John 21: 1 – 17. 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.
Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” John 21:15
Read this family devotion together through the week to help to reinforce the lesson. http://children.cccm.com/NTDevotionsPDF/DEVNT283.pdf
Take your child along to serve at a soup kitchen or to visit a shut in. Talk about how when we are serving others, we are also serving Jesus.
