October 17, 2010
Date Age-group Scripture Theme
Oct. 3/2010 Preschool Acts 2:14-36 Good News!

Written/Arranged by Teresa Klassen

1. Free Time

Just play with the children and enjoy getting to know them

2. Kid’s Speak

Teacher asks the children: “What are some things that make you happy?”

If the children don’t know how to answer, then ask them…

  • Does it make you happy when you have to clean up a very messy room (nooooo)
  • Does it make you happy when you get to eat ice-cream (yes)
  • Does it make you happy when you have to go to bed early (nooooo)
  • Does it make you happy when you get to play outside on a sunny day (yes)
  • Does it make you happy when you are feeling sick (nooooo)
  • Does it make you happy when it is your birthday (yes)

Teacher says: Some things don’t make us very happy: this is bad news

Some things make us very happy: this is good news!

3. Good News! – Poster Activity

  • We will have a poster of Good/Happy things.
  • We will have smiley faces that say “Good News”
  • Have the children glue a Happy Face on every poster picture
  • When the put the picture on the poster have them say, “Good News!”

4. Jesus’ Good News

We will have flashcards with the following little truths from the Bible

1.     When Jesus made the world it was perfect, and we were best friends with Jesus. That is how Jesus wanted it to be!

2.     But sometimes we do things that are naughty, right? Sometimes we don’t share. Sometimes we don’t listen to our mommy’s and daddy’s, and this is wrong. This is what people do sometimes. We do things that are wrong.

3.     When we do things that are naughty, this is called sin.  When we sin it makes our hearts are all dirty and black.

4.     When our hearts are all dirty and black with sin it makes Jesus sad. Our sin pushes Jesus away. He loves us and doesn’t want our hearts to be black with sin. He wants to be our best friend.

5.     When we say sorry to Jesus He forgives us.

6.     When we say “I am sorry” to Jesus he makes our hearts clean again

7.     When Jesus says he will make our hearts clean, this is very, very good news and it makes us very, very happy!

5. Sing

Sing  “Jesus Loves Me” along with the CD/DVD

6. Good News-paper

This activity uses the Bible. There will be a “newspaper” inside the Bible.

Teacher says: Do you know how your mommy and daddy sometimes read the newspaper (show the children a newspaper). This paper is full of news about what is going on in the city where we live.

The Bible (show them a Bible) is full of news too.  It is full of very good news!

(Pull out the “Newspaper” from the Bible) Look…this news from the Bible says, “Good News” (show the children the big front headline of the paper that says “Good News”) This says, “Good News” can you say that with me?

Let’s open up our paper and see what the Good News is…

Front of the paper says: Good News

Inside Left says: Jesus loves you!

Inside Right says: Jesus loves me!

7. Craft

Make a “Good News-paper” with the children and have them practice telling it to the class.

  • We will have a big piece of paper folded in half.
  • We will have 3 other pages that you can glue onto this – one on the front, and two in the middle

Front of the paper says: Good News

Inside Left says: Jesus loves you!

Inside Right says: Jesus loves me!

8. Snack

Pray with the children before you have your snack and thank Jesus for the Good News that he forgives our sin and makes our hearts clean again!

9. Bible Memory

“Jesus is the light of the world”

  • Jesus is: point up
  • The Light: make your finger like your candle and your other hand like a flame (explain that it is a candle/light)
  • Of the world: make your arms like a big circle, like the earth

10. Clean up, Clean up

Have the children help you tidy up the room
