0–5 Lesson Plan: God’s Gifts of Salvation and Forgiveness

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 40-minute 0–5 lesson plan on the gift of salvation and the forgiveness that Jesus gives those who ask Him for it.

Read God’s Great Love for Us.”

Talk about things that can be done every day to be a good reflection of Jesus. Ask the children whether it is always easy to do what is right or good, and why one might choose to do something that is wrong, unkind, or hurtful. Explain how Jesus wants to help His children choose to do what is right, and that help is available through prayer.

Read Salvation Is Forever.”

Explain how even though someone may do wrong at times, if he or she comes to Jesus with a sorry heart and asks Jesus for His forgiveness, He is eager to help. Ask the children if there are any things that they could use Jesus’ forgiveness for, then take a few minutes to pray and ask Jesus for His forgiveness and His help to do better next time.

ReadSalvation Is Free.”

ReadBright Pebbles: That Simple,” then complete the “action” on the last page.

Memorize John 3:16.

ReadTwice Mine.”

Listen toMy Little Thoughts on God: Salvation Is a Gift” and color one of the coloring pages.

End by praising Jesus for His love and gift of salvation.

0–5 Lesson Plan: A Heart Filled with Joy

Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute 0–5 lesson plan on the importance of gratitude and ways to demonstrate thankfulness to God and others.

ReadDunkin.”

Think of one thing that happened to you recently that might not have been what you hoped for, but that turned out all right in the end. Discuss how looking for the good in a situation can make it easier to be happy when things don’t go as you wished or planned. 

Read My Little Talks with Jesus: Look on the Bright Side.”

Memorize this little rhyme:

“I’ll look on the bright side when things make me sad.

Soon I’ll find plenty of reasons to be glad!”1

The next time you’re feeling down because something isn’t going your way, remember this little rhyme, and take a few minutes to find something to be joyful about.

ReadThrough Ups and Downs.

Take a moment to pray, and ask Jesus to help you be positive and grateful throughout your day, especially when things don’t go as you planned.

Watch Sing a Song of Joy.”

Talk about how one way to find joy is by looking for ways to make others happy. Then brainstorm little acts of kindness to make others happy.

UseHave Fun with Gratitude” to think of three things you are grateful for and draw them in the little boxes. Post the picture by your bed so you can be reminded of these things at the start and end of each day.

Optional activity:

Level 1 Lesson Plan: Our Loving Protector

Here is a 45-minute lesson plan, divided into two halves, that highlights the lesson objective of learning about God’s power to protect (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: God-1a).

The class is designed so it can be divided into two sessions if you like.

First half:

Read Standing on God’s Word: He Watches over Us.”

Look up Psalm 3:5 for another Bible promise about a good night’s rest.

Read Standing on God’s Word: Angelic Protection.”

Listen to the audio “Fear Thou Not.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Peace in a Storm.”

Listen to the audio “God Is Our Refuge.”

Review the verses from “Crazily Cool Cards Set: Fear Not.” You can also print these out for your child to color.

*

Second half:

Read Standing on God’s Word: Saving Power.”

Follow this up by reading:

ReadPrayer Results” and “Power to Help.”

Listen to the audio “Therefore Will I Deliver Him.”

Read Standing on God’s Word: Safekeeping. Then with your child, discover and discuss the similarities between the verse from this class, Psalm 34:7, and the verse in the “Saving Power” class, Psalm 91:14. (Hint: Reverencing / loving the Lord.)

Conclude by talking about the times Jesus has protected you and your child, both the obvious times of intervention and the unseen times. Then take some time to thank Jesus for His wonderful care!

Listen to I Will Bless the Lord at All Times.” Look up Psalm 34 (KJV) and sing along.

Level 2 Lesson Plan: Dealing with Dragons

Here is a 30-minute lesson plan that highlights the following lesson objective: “Understand that courage enables us to face the daily challenges that are known to us, as well as the unknown fears that we have yet to encounter,” and “Learn to recognize and practice courage in everyday situations, and understand that it is a skill that can be developed, which will allow one to face situations that previously had been thought too difficult.” (Character Building: Values and Virtues: Courage-2d,e)

Listen to What Time I Am Afraid.” While listening to the song, have your children reflect on the picture that accompanies this song.

ReadDealing with Dragons.

Discuss with your children some of the feelings they deal with that prevent them from facing bigger or harder challenges. For example:

  • they may feel they will fail at something,
  • they are unsure of where to begin,
  • they don’t understand everything completely and so they prefer not to begin,
  • they fear people will belittle them if they do something wrong.      

Whatever fear they may have, discuss ways or a step they can take toward overcoming or facing their fear. Remind them that sometimes courage grows slowly as they take steps to achieve whatever task they set out to do. With each step they receive more courage and confidence. Also discuss how to call on God’s help or use His help in whatever situation you are discussing.

ReadFeeling Shy?

Discuss with your children how the girl in the story faced her fear when she talked to the new girl, discovering that they had a lot in common and became best friends. Talk about what would have happened if she hadn’t talked with her. Also discuss how scary it seemed to Moses to face Pharaoh, as God commanded, telling him to let the Hebrew people go free. It must have seemed daunting at first, and Moses probably had a lot of questions, but he took the first step and traveled to Egypt, and everything fell into place as he followed the steps God showed him to take.

Talk about this line from “Feeling Shy”: “The more you face your fear, the easier it gets.” Talk about how this applies to your children and the challenges they regularly face. If you think of examples from your own life, share those as well.

Listen to God Is Our Refuge.

ReadThe Blessing of Family and Friends.”

Ask each child to name something special about a person in their family, and how that special something makes you or others happy. For example, “My sister Alice is fun to play with. She makes our games exciting,” or “Grandma is caring and thoughtful. She makes me feel loved.”

Read Building Friendships” and “One Kind Deed at a Time: Build a Better Friendship.”

Discuss how friendship is another everyday gift that can be given and received. Talk about some of the things that make a friendship special, and how to give the gift of friendship to someone.

ReadJesus Is with You!” and “Jesus, Friend of Little Children.”

Talk about how the best gift you can have is Jesus. Jesus will always be there to guide, love, help, and be your friend, no matter what.

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?
