0-5 Lesson Plan: A Love So Great

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute 0–5 lesson plan on Easter and God’s great love for us, and how we can demonstrate some of the qualities witnessed in Jesus’ life on earth in our everyday actions.

Read Pray a Way: Easter.”

Watch He’s Alive.”

Explain how Jesus lived a life that was filled with love, honesty, courage, and kindness. Even though Jesus left earth, He promised to always be near His children and would help them to teach other people about God.

Memorize the Bible verse, “And be sure of this: I am with you always.”1

Read “Jesus’ Love for Us.”

Talk about ways to follow Jesus’ example every day, and in so doing, make the world a better place. For example, building your faith in God and drawing closer to Him, being kind to others, being brave even when facing a difficult situation, being truthful, etc.

Read Bright Pebbles: So Much Love.”

Stand up and get ready to hop. Hop once, then thank God for His love for you. Hop again and tell someone in your family how much you love him or her. Then hop and tell God about your love for Him. Hop again, and say something loving to one of your family. Do this until you have said something loving to each person in your family.2

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Gaining Wisdom from Difficulties

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in a 30- to 45-minute class. It relates to the lesson objectives on wisdom:

• Learn that the root of all wisdom comes from God, the fear of Him, and God’s Word; read and memorize Scripture upon which these principles are based. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1a)
• Understand that wisdom is a gift of the Spirit, and godly wisdom is a manifestation of God’s Spirit within us. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1b)
• Learn that there is a difference between man’s understanding and God’s wisdom. (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Wisdom 1c)

Enjoy singing and dancing along with “Sing, O Heavens.”

Start with “Discover Jewels through Difficulties.” If either of the two examples can be recently applied to your child, study further as suggested in the text.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Caring for Pets.” Ask your child what jewels the children might have gained through this incident, such as:

• The children were reminded about the importance of being diligent in the details of caring for pets. Neglecting little things can sometimes have big negative consequences. For example, the little neglect of checking on Hammy’s water caused him to be sick from dehydration.
• This could be applied to other areas in the children’s lives. Perhaps they feel impatient with the expectation of being diligent with the small things they are asked to do around the house. Talk about the repercussions of not being diligent, such as when the water in the bathroom is left running, or when they do not flush the toilet, etc.
• Bible verse jewels that can be applied can be found in “Crazily Cool Card Set: Faithfulness.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Don’t Argue, Have Fun” and “Standing on God’s Word: Forgiving Others.” Nick’s experiences help him to discover jewels that help him get along better with others. Discuss with your child the jewels Nick can gain from these experiences, such as:

• Being considerate of what the other person wants to do.
• How the joy that comes from getting along well together can be a greater joy than can be gained by always trying to get to do what you want.
• How friendships are hindered when we don’t forgive, but can grow when we do forgive.
• Read the Bible verses found within these two articles, and talk with the children about how they can apply these jewels in their lives.

ReadStanding on God’s Word: Be Appreciative and Thankful.”

Ask your child what jewels can be found in this experience. Some examples are:

• Showing consideration of the feelings of those who do things for us by appreciating what they do.
• Often when something is difficult for us, Jesus does things to help us, similar to how the mother added raisins to the rice pudding, which made it more enjoyable. Read the Bible verse about how God makes a “way of escape” or makes things easier for us in what we might consider a difficult situation. Can you and your child think of times something was done to make a situation easier for the child?

Wrap up this study by talking with your child about difficulties that they have encountered in the past week or month, discussing the final point in the article “Discover Jewels through Difficulties”: “There are many jewels to find, even in difficulties. What jewels in God’s Word have you discovered this week?”

Level 2 Lesson Plan: Would You Like to See Jesus?

Here is a 20- to 30-minute lesson plan that highlights the following lesson objective: “Be able to identify key elements that enhance a Christian’s witness; recognize how a good Christian example can draw others to Jesus: one’s countenance, comportment, and actions all play a part in one’s witness to others,” and “Be able to identify opportunities to share Jesus with others, and how to be ready to do so at any time.” (Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Preaching the Gospel-2d, 2e)

Read Would You Like to See Jesus?

Talking points:

ReadA Thought for the Day: Light Up!

WatchShow Jesus.”

Discuss ways your children can show Jesus to others. It doesn’t always have to be in big or obvious ways. Often it’s the small, considerate, and kind things they do that people will notice. If people are aware they love Jesus, then when they show them how they love Jesus through example, these people may also come to know Jesus and understand His great love.

End with this thought A Thought for the Day: An Important Job?

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Jesus Is God’s Word

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 30 minutes to an hour. It relates to the lesson objectives: “Learn about Jesus, God’s Son, and why He came to earth,” and “be able to identify the benefits of reading God’s Word daily and becoming a student of the Word.” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Jesus, God’s Son-1a; and Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: God’s Word-1c).

ReadJohn 1:1-14,” or listen to this audio version.

Fill in the blanks of the activity “Jesus Is the Word.”

Points to discuss when reading the above article.

Page 1: Jesus is “the Word.” That’s because Jesus portrays the entire truth of God. Similar to how we read words to help us know a subject, we also get to know about God through knowing Jesus.

Everything was made by the Word, Jesus.

Page 2: When Jesus said that by following Him a person does not walk in darkness, what does He mean? Jesus taught and showed us the best way to live. He shined the light of His truth into the world by showing us both through example and through His Word how to live and love.

Page 3: John the Baptist told people that Jesus was coming, and baptized many to symbolize washing away their sins. He was preparing them for the arrival of Jesus. You can read about John baptizing Jesus in the article “When Jesus Was Baptized.” Read more about this prophet’s life in “Faith-Filled Models from the New Testament: John the Baptist,” and in pages 6–8 of “A Man Named Jesus, Chapter 1: Two Miraculous Babies.”

Page 4: Jesus came to earth as God’s gift to each one of us. However, though He was God’s gift of love, and though He is the one who created each of us, when He came, many people did not like Him and they turned against Him.

Page 5: Jesus knew His Father personally, and loved Him very much. He came to show us His Father, so that we could know Him as our Father too, and so we could live as sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. The Father loves us very much!

Page 6: Jesus came to earth, became human, so that he could show us what God was like. Jesus, the Word, the truth about God, became a human to bring us into a full, loving relationship with God.

WatchGod’s Word Becomes Flesh,” starting at 49 seconds.

ReadFaith-Filled Models from the New Testament: John the Beloved.”

Listen to the audio, “I Am the Way.”

Read Meals with Jesus: Mary and Martha.” There is also an accompanying 3D picture of the story that can be assembled, as well as a coloring page.

Discuss why Jesus said that Mary had chosen what was good. Jesus was explaining to Martha that hearing His teachings was very important, which is why He told her that Mary’s choice was good. However, it was also important to serve the food to their guest, as Martha was doing, and Jesus didn’t say that Martha was wrong in doing so.

Read the following articles from the series “Standing on God’s Word.”

Listen to Jesus now to hear what words of love He has for you.

Choose from these cards Bible verses that go with the above lesson. If you haven’t already, you can print, cut, and color them as well.

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Bananas and Life Goals

Here is a lesson plan that can be covered in 20 to 30 minutes, relating to the lesson objective: “Learn of the importance of investing into one’s education, and identify with biblical, historical, and present-day characters who were/are successful, due to investing in their education.” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Learning and Study Skills-1b)

ReadThat Banana There.”

Listen to the audio, “That Banana There” or view it here.

Watch Dole: Banana Production, Plantation to Port.

Compare some of the points explained about producing bananas to experiences in the child’s life:
1) The banana shoot is well cleaned to make sure it is free from disease. This could be compared to how a parent or teacher explains what is acceptable behavior and what is not. For example, discuss with the child lessons about comportment they may have been learning recently. Talk about how learning takes time.
2) The banana plants are shown growing in clear jars, then planted into pots of ground coconut shell, and finally are planted in the field. This could be compared to how children go to preschool, then primary school, and step by step on to higher education.
3) There are often many steps that need to be taken to reach a goal, just like there are many steps to reach the goal of growing good bananas. Education is one way children prepare for adulthood, through learning important skills such as mathematics, social studies, science, language arts, etc. These steps are important, and it takes time to progress through those steps.
4) Each step is important. Talk about what would happen if one of the steps for producing bananas was not executed properly. For example, faulty drainage could cause young banana plants to drown. Bananas not packed well or kept at an incorrect temperature when shipped to another country will arrive in poor condition or even rotten. 
                In the case of a child’s education, children are trained one step at a time in the variety of subjects that they need training in for their lives. Sometimes it seems tiring or frustrating, as they have to pay close attention to understand the lessons well, but it’s all worthwhile.

ReadYou Can Do It!
