Step 5: Teaching the Lesson

KIMI fourth Suriname training took place at an Evangelic Centre Suriname church in the capital of Parimaribo.

Twelve different churches came together for this training, including many Kinder Club teachers.

a. Review: Have specific questions written down from last lesson. It is more to see how well you taught. (If you taught well, they will remember well.) It will also give you chance to to go over anything missed

“Back Track”.

b. The next step of the lesson is to teach the Bible Verse - “Sword Play”
• Teach them in a fun memorable way
• Be completely prepared. – If you need notes, have them where you can glance at them

Sword Play”
We use short versions of the scriptures, but older children may be encouraged to memorize the entire verse.

Guidelines in teaching the “Sword Play” Bible Verse
• Be creative
• Use objects
• Include game-like activities

“Sword Play” Teaching Methods

1. Footsteps: Write the intended memory verse on footsteps read the verse out loud to the group or class.
a. Ask the group to repeat the verse with you.
b. Get one volunteer to walk the footsteps repeating the verse Remove one key word from the line of footsteps get them to walk again.
c. Remove another word and repeat previous step.
d. Continue until child can say verse from memory with no written reminders.




 
 

2. Balloon Jumble:

Have 2 teams of children line up holding up cards with the verse written in words or phrases in order. (Balloons)
a. Scramble the children all up, then challenge the teams to get back in order.
b. Cheer the winner.
c. Have all children then repeat the verse.

d. Scramble them out of order again but this time choose children to repeat the verse without seeing it put back in order.

e. Break the verse apart for younger kids.

3. Hand Motions: Make up motions to go with the words.

4. Rap: Make up your own tune for the verse this can be sung with clapping, hopping or dancing. Start a rhythm with a drum. Fit the rhythm of the verse to the rhythm of the drum. Turn it into a worship “rap” song.

5. Skipping to the rhythm.

Turn the verse into a song and skip as the verse if recited, singing as you skip.

6. Hand chant : John 3 : 16

For (clap left hands together) God (clap right hand together) so (clap both hands together) loved (clap left hands together) the (clap right hand together) world, (clap both hands together getting faster and faster) etc. This always results in lots of fun and laughter.

 

7. Silly voices: Have children practice verse with different “silly” character voices – Example:“Mini-Mouse” (high, squeaky), ‘roar’ it like a Lion or a robot voice (monotone, staccato)

8. Crazy stand-ups. Split the class into three, one team stands and chants, “For the wages of sin is death.” The next team stands and chants, “but the gift of God is eternal life” Another team stands and shouts out “in Christ Jesus our Lord.”. The last team stands and shouts “Romans 6:23!” Have a contest as to which side can say their portion of the verse the loudest and strongest.

9. Passing the parcel – Wrap a little gift with many layers of paper. On each layer write the verse in BOLD. Pass a parcel with the verse written upon it. Play music, or drum, then stop it! Whoever has the parcel says memory verse unwraps the gift and passes it on. Eventually many children will have a chance and all will hear it several times and in the end someone gets a little gift.

10. Drama.

For God so loved the world.

Or Long jump to Jesus

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)


Get the children to try and long jump to Jesus, as each one fails point out that he ‘came short’ of reaching Jesus because all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

No matter how hard they try they can’t reach Jesus in their own strength.
