The K-4 group began the year with a unit on the Lord’s Prayer. How do you engage children of varying ages with such a topic? Here are some examples from the Spark curriculum:

  • Praying hands: decorate hand prints in Art
  • God hears us: telephone play in Preschool, “listening salad” made with ear-shaped pasta in Cooking, Sound Scavenger Hunt in science
  • Daily bread: prayer collages representing our basic needs, for the older children in Art

And along with our music theme this year, the children learned a song version of the Lord’s Prayer during Gathering Time.

See you on Sunday! Peace,
