0–5 Lesson Plan: God’s Word—A Guiding Light

Note to parent or teacher: Here’s a 20- to 30-minute class plan on God’s Word. It highlights the following lesson objective: Respect and treasure God's Word, and understand the importance of keeping and obeying God's Word; study and memorize Bible verses upon which these principles are based. (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: God’s Word-1b)

The general target age for this class is 3 through 6. You can adapt, simplify, or expound on this lesson plan to better suit your child’s comprehension level. Activities that may be better suited for older children within the 4 through 7 age range are marked with an asterisk.

*

Listen to “In the Bible,” and “New Testament.” If your child likes to dance, you can have your child dance to the song. After the song is done, talk about how the Bible is like God’s letters to us. It tells us where we came from, where we are going, and how to live godly lives.

Look up the following Bible verses: Psalm 37:31 and 2 Peter 1:4a.

* Read the article “What Is the Bible,” or one like it.

WatchVideo: The Parables of Jesus: The Two Builders,” and/or “The Wise and Foolish Man.”

Discuss how the rock in the parable symbolizes God’s Word. Talk about what happens when we build the house of our lives on Jesus’ teachings, and what could happen if we do not. Apply this to everyday situations that you face with your child, and what he or she can do to obey Jesus’ teachings in his or her daily life.

ReadBright Pebbles: A Bright Light.” After reading this article, act out the “action” at the end of the slideshow.

Memorize the verse, “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 NIV). If your child likes to draw, have your child illustrate this verse, and write out the verse at the bottom of the picture. Put it up by your child’s bed or some other place your child will be able to see it daily.

Memorize the following poem (or learn the song):

The B-I-B-L-E!
That’s the book for me!
I stand upon
The Word of God
The B-I-B-L-E!

Additional activities:

  • With your children, build a LEGO or DUPLO house. As you play, highlight the importance of building a strong foundation for your house, so that it won’t easily fall over.
  • * Do a Google search on “interesting Bible statistics,” or “amazing Bible facts,” and read some of the interesting facts about the Bible with your child.

If you have other suggestions of supplemental material, or additional activities in teaching this topic, please share your ideas and tips by commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Check out: http://earlylearningathome.com/bible-fun . The post called "Memory verses" could be a little additional activity to make it fun, with not too much prep work involved. There are a few other posts about The Word, but may need a little extra work to put together. I found this one to be the kids' favorite. Thanks for all you do. These lesson plans will be great and very useful.

I love the idea of classes and a user-friendly format with built-in links to the pubs/video/audio files. I've just tried this with my 5 year-old, and she loved it. However, we found out that a couple of links don't work ('The parable about the two builders' and 'Bright pebbles: Bright Light') Could it be fixed, please? Thanks in advance.
Also, in my opinion, 'What is the Bible' - although a great article - is too texty and not enough pictury for the littlest ones, I think :) Maybe, posting something that is more colorful with bigger print for this age group would be better? And move similar posts one level up? (However, this comment is very subjective. Maybe, for other children of this group age it will be fine). GBY! Great job.

Thanks, Vera, for the mention about the links. They should be working now!

"What Is the Bible" article was marked with an asterisk, and was noted at the beginning of the lesson plan that it might be better suited for older children.

We're glad that your girl liked it. Thanks for the encouragement!

Thank you dear team for all your hard work and thoughtfulness in putting these together for our children to benefit from. With all the many changes and us having to survive on our own I was getting discouraged that our children do not have the same asset of scripture and moral training as the children in the days past did. But you have solved that problem. We both parents get so caught up in the days affairs that this is a true relief to have it all planned out. You are truly Gods answer to our prayers on how to solve this problem with giving the right input to our kids. We love love love you and thank you tonzy wonzy.
