Teaching Little Ones Vol. 4: Promises (CD-ROM)

Carmichael, Stephanie

Product Description

Product Description: What better time to start teaching children than when they are young? Paul reminds Timothy that he had the privilege of knowing the holy Scriptures "from infancy" (2 Tim 3:14-15).

Teaching Little Ones is a six-year syllabus of Sunday School lessons for young children by Stephanie Carmichael, author of Their God is so BIG. There is a great deal more information than we can fit on this product page at the Teaching Little Ones web page.

Recommended for Ages: 5-8
40 Lessons on CD-ROM

What's Included?
On each CD-ROM there's virtually everything you'll need for one year (that's 40 weeks) of lessons—including lesson plans, story scripts, action rhymes, prayers, activities and craft ideas. You won't have to worry about recurring licence fees or buying workbooks—once you have bought this CD, your church can use the lessons year after year. The material is provided in Adobe PDF format so you can distribute individual lessons to teachers via email, allowing them to prepare in advance and print off only the sheets they need.

About Promises:
This is the first part of a syllabus designed for 5 to 8-year-olds. In this set of units, the lessons are linked together under the theme of ‘Promises’. This theme covers how God makes promises in a covenantal relationship with his people, the Israelites, and now with all who believe in his Son.

The lessons look at the key promises made to Abraham, and how God keeps his promises in the Old Testament through Abraham's family, and then, later, as the Israelites enter the Promised Land. Abraham is briefly looked at in ‘Introducing the Bible’ (for ages 3-5), but here the lessons focus on the promises. The lessons also look at Jesus and how God made promises in the Old Testament which are fulfilled in Jesus. Children also look at Psalm 145 and learn about God's character and how he is faithful to his promises.

The other two years covered in this 5-8 year age group are Kingship and Salvation.

If your Sunday School has this age group (5-8 years or the first three years of school) together in one class, then the three-year syllabus can be covered cyclically over the three-year period while children are in the class (Promises one year, Kingship the next, Salvation the next and then back to Promises). Each child will cover the three years of the syllabus in a different order depending on when they join the class. If the children are in separate classes for each year of school, then the first year of school can do Promises, the second year of school Kingship and the third year of school Salvation.

In all three years, there are lessons on God's word, prayer, living God's way, and missionaries.
