Bible Story Lessons

Preschool  Kids Church / Sunday School Classes etc.
Teaching Resources  through the main Bible Stories.
Teaching preschool children well takes preparation!
Get help from seniors or others in your church. 
            Even older children can help.
            Simple, visual and not too long. 
Use with resources that you may already have.
A few ideas:
* Every family in my class get a free Noah's Ark CD
available from Itunes
songs stay in their heart for their life.
* Every child gets a "Small Picture Bible For Pre-schoolers"
 see below. 
* I have made a Big Book of this, with Velcro pictures.
In the lesson plans this is called "My Bible." 
Children love interactive props and take turns to put them on.
* Every child hears that Jesus loves them regularly 
either with a puppet saying their name ,
 "David Jesus loves you."
Or use a mirror:  "Can you see who Jesus loves?
Yes! Jesus loves David." 
* A fun take home activity that reflects the story.
* A booklet of the story - parents read this and learn too!
* I begin with a standing up fun action song.
The next songs the children usually sit for. 
The words are at the end of the Lesson Plans for your


The lesson includes 3 fun action songs from Noah's Ark CD
An action rhyme or finger play - often from Noah's Ark CD.
Simple Bible verse 
Story Activity related to Bible story
it helps them to remember.
They use these to play "church" at home. 
Make story visual and have variety.
I have found it easier to establish a routine
for the lesson time where toys are out of reach
or else to teach in a toy free room.
We have very young children who stay for the story
if they are  settled. Usually they soon get interested in


the fun props. 
We encourage parents to sit in class with them if necessary
or take them to another area. 
I have a mat or cushions where the children
get used to going to for story time. 
Snap the story along quickly to keep the children focused.
Their concentration is short at this level. 
(my class is 18 months to 5 years.)
Do the story in a variety of ways:
for example use dolls which act the story, use drama 
we all join in - a book, flash cards, magnet board,
story on ice block sticks,
attach pictures to pegs on a line.
Make a Big Book. Flip puppet which can 
flip up or drop characters down.
Use the puppets from web.
For a change make them stand
by sticking to a little box or stand in a slit. 
There is no one way fits all! Just use the ideas
that work for you and add your own style and props.
* If this material is useful, or you have suggestions, 
we would love to hear from you!
