God's Child is Kind

Our school room is under construction - I decided I need a change for the New Year and was crazy enough to try and undertake the project over the Holidays (silly me!).  So, it's not quite finished yet... but I plan to have it done next weekend (hopefully, I'm not making any promises, hehe).  So, while it's under construction, I came up with our lesson plan to utilize the REST of the house!

For the next 8 weeks, we will be doing a study on "God's Child" and how a child of God is to be.  We'll be using a book by Rainbow Publishers called "Instant Bible Lessons for Preschools: I am God's Child".

For this week, we will be learning that God's Child is Kind.  I'm posting up our lesson plan and the daily break down of our lesson plan and some of our printables - Enjoy!!!

Here is a sample of the lesson plan:
