Level 1 Lesson Plan: Being Considerate Means…

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 20 to 30 minutes, highlighting the lesson objectives: “Be able to define ‘respect’—consideration and thoughtfulness of others, admiration of somebody, showing esteem to someone else, being careful of another’s feelings and belongings,” and “learn to see things from others’ point of view and empathize with the difficulties, obstacles, or situations that others face.” (Character Building: Social Skills: Respect-1a and Character Building: Social Skills: Compassion-1b)

Read Standing on God’s Word: Lifting Others Up.”

  • Ask the children to give examples of their own actions where they have helped others feel admired or respected for their good qualities.
  • Talk about how their actions helped the other person(s) in the examples they gave.
  • Read the Bible verse at the end of the class, Philippians 2:3, and discuss how being humble helps us show respect for others, and the benefits of doing this.

Read Tales of Farm Friends: Star: Spirited but Gentle,” and have the children think of ways they can be considerate of those who are younger than them.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Be a Good Listener.”

  • If applicable, recount a time when you didn’t listen to one of the children and apologize for this.
  • Then ask the children to explain how it feels to not be listened to.
  • Read the Bible verse at the end of the class, Romans 12:10, and talk about how listening to another shows that person your respect.

Pray together to be good listeners.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Considering Others.

  • Bring out how in Nick’s case, it worked out for him to see his grandmother and not disappoint her, while also getting to do what he had hoped to do (playing with his friend).
  • Ask the children if it would have still been better for Nick to honor his agreement with his grandmother, even if he didn’t get to play at the park.
  • Read the Bible verse, Proverbs 3:27, at the end of the class, and ask the children if they can think of personal examples of when they did something for another person at the cost of forgoing something fun they had wanted to do.
  • Follow this up by reading “Kindness Pays Forward,” and talk about how in Nick’s case, his consideration of his grandmother paid forward and she also considered his desire to play with his friend.

Apply the verses of “Crazily Cool Cards Set: Giving” to the acts of consideration discussed so far.

  • Read one verse at a time, and apply it to the topics discussed in this class.
  • Choose a verse to memorize or review. Print out and color the card.

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute lesson plan on the following lesson objective: “Learn of the Scriptural injunction to honor one’s parents; in essence, to show respect and deference to one’s parents as they raise and train their children.” (Character Building: Social Skills: Respect-1d)

“How should I interact with God?” Supplement (Biblical and Christian Foundation: God-1b)

To build a habit of showing respect to God, have your family look for ways to show respect for God during the day, and then at dinner for the next week share stories of what each of you did.

Memorize James 4:8 together.

If your children enjoy drawing, have them draw a picture of a way or ways to show God respect, or a picture to go along with one of the scriptures in the article.
