Kindergarten Teacher Manual Spring 2021
Children’s Classroom Décor: Under the Sea Expedition
The ocean is beautiful. Its salty blue water dances in the sunlight, and its rolling waves race to the sandy shore where they collide with a foamy white crash. For all the wonder the sea conjures from its surface, it is nothing compared to the splendor revealed to those who dare to dive into its watery depths. This could very well describe God and the way He reveals His goodness and His glory to those who dive into His Word. This quarter explores the vast ocean of God and the Bible, as we dip our toes into Revelation and the Minor Prophets. John will give students a glimpse into the beautiful treasure called Heaven. Students will wade into teachings about the special relationship God has with His people, and prophets of old will teach students how to stay afloat in this big and wonderful world.
This teacher’s manual puts into the teacher’s hand practical and exciting ideas to feed these hungry minds a well-balanced diet. Creative ideas are given for teaching the children as they play, give, and do. Every segment of the lesson reassures the children that God loves and cares for them. As the children learn basic Bible story facts about people who are part of His story, they will also hear how they too can be part of His story, using some of the same techniques, decisions, and thought processes that the Bible characters used.
Extra helps are included throughout the teacher’s manual such as Bible backgrounds, teacher insights that discuss characteristics of four- and five-year-olds, suggestions for working with those with special needs, and practical teaching tips that cover everything from clever craft ideas to dealing with discipline issues. All activities, memory work, games, and lessons are age-appropriate to meet the broad scope of the various students’ learning skills, while encouraging them to stretch their abilities.
In addition to a Kindergarten Teacher’s Manual for each teacher, Word Aflame recommends one Kindergarten Activity Paper per student, as well as one Kindergarten Resource Packet per class. When you purchase the teacher’s manual, you will find an access code inside that allows you to download free digital versions (PDFs and Word documents) of the manual for study on the go through your electronic devices.
