Level 1 Lesson Plan: Stay Safe and Have Fun

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 20 minutes that highlights the lesson objectives: “Learn to take responsibility for one’s actions” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Responsibility-1b) and “Learn that moderation is a form of temperance, which is a fruit of the Spirit, and is manifested when one is abiding in Jesus.” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Moderation-1a).

ReadHave Fun.” Ask the children to answer the question on the last page of this comic, “Can you think of times when you did something unwise that turned fun into something that caused a problem for you or someone else?”

ReadThe Protective Tower.”

Memorize one of the verses from “Crazily Cool Card Set: An Active Force Field.” Also discuss each of the verses in the context of what is brought out in “The Protective Tower,” about how when they obey Jesus as well as their parents and teachers, they are then in a better position for God to take care of them. He will protect them, and if something troublesome happens, He’ll see them through with His loving care.

ReadGod’s Favor” and talk with the children about how even if at times they might go overboard when having fun and something goes wrong due to their foolishness, God is still with them (see page 2).

Level 2 Lesson Plan: What Is Maturity?

Note to parent or teacher: Here’s a 30- to 40-minute lesson plan highlighting the following learning objectives: “Understand that being responsible for something shows maturity and generates trust.” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Responsibility-2a

Discuss the meaning of “maturity.” One dictionary lists it as the full development of someone or something. Children, therefore, are on the path to becoming fully developed adults.

Talk about how the goal with any kind of instruction that you give is to help your children grow into mature people capable of making their own wise and responsible decisions for themselves. Ask the children if they can list some actions of a mature individual, whether child or adult.

For example, a mature individual…

  • Ÿ  takes responsibility for his mistakes
  • Ÿ   doesn’t need someone to remind him to brush his teeth or perform some other basic means of personal care
  • Ÿ   is able to control his emotions
  • Ÿ   makes wise choices, thinking about what would benefit him most in the future, versus only what might be nice in the present

ReadAre Daily Decisions Really that Important?” Discuss how the choices one makes daily either accelerate or hinder growing in maturity.

The following articles provide tips for developing more maturity:

Print out, color and cut out “Crazily Cool Card Set: Training for Excellence.” Have your child choose one verse from this set to memorize today.

0–5 Lesson Plan: I Can Remember!

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 15-minute 0–5 lesson plan on training the mind to remember.

WatchMama, I Remembered.”

Talk about how it can be easy to forget the things that the children are expected to do (chores, personal hygiene pointers, etc.). But, eventually, if they don’t give up, these things will become a habit and easier to remember to do.

Ask your children what things are easy for them to forget about. Brainstorm ways that will help them remember. (For example, if your children have chores, write down all the steps of the chore, with accompanying illustrations if they are too young to read.)

ReadThe Dependable Honeybee.”

Have your children pick one verse from “Crazily Cool Card Set: Faithfulness to color and memorize.
