fruit of the spirit | preschool curriculum

Are you ready for some summer fun?

For June - August 1st we will be teaching the Preschoolers about the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.


The Fruit of the Spirit is a lesson that should hopefully be applied by our lives first then to the kids.

A life full of the attributes of the fruit of the Spirit is a life that's proves we know God.


"You will know them by their fruit."


DEVOTIONS FOR TEACHERS/LEADERS: 

Below are recommended teachings of what it means to have the fruit of the Spirit in your life:

new routine

While everything stays similar to the way it was done before (Check in/out), 

we will be passing on the responsibility of the songs and Bible lesson to someone else.

  • No more computer checking-in done inside the classrooms! The kids will simply be dropped off and you'll be handed a name tag sticker from their parents. 


    After being dropped off, the kids will have the chance to play with some opening activities such as:

    • Pretend play
    • Sensory play
    • Color pages
    YOUR TEAM RESPONSIBILITY:
    • CHECK IN | Have one leader be in charge of check in by putting the name tags in your binder. *Note allergies
    • WELCOME | Playing with the kids, showing them activities they can do, and making them feel welcome.
    • RESTROOM | Asking if anyone needs to use the restroom BEFORE the playground time. 
  • We have such a NICE playground... so we plan on using it! The kids will have a chance to get their energy out before going upstairs for songs and the Bible lesson. 


    At the playground you can also expect a sensory play table that will match the lesson for that day.


    YOUR TEAM RESPONSIBILITY:

    • Making sure all your kids make it to the playground.
    • Making sure all your kids make it out.
    • Have fun with them
    • SONGS | Time to take the pressure off of you in knowing new songs! We will have someone lead worship upstairs in our **previous 4th-5th grade classroom** while you help the kids enjoy the time and do some motions yourself. 
    • PUPPET HOST | Sounds fun right? Yes, it will be!
    • STORY |  The lesson will be taught different ways every week. Sometimes skits, puppets, books, or more! 
    YOUR TEAM RESPONSIBILITY:
    • Making sure all your kids make it upstairs.
    • Ensuring the puppets don't get mugged by your classroom kids.
    • Making sure all your kids make it out and back downstairs.
    • Be engaged in the songs and story with your kids. 
  • After the upstairs songs and story, your class will walk downstairs back into their classroom. At their classroom they will:

    • ACTIVITY | Your class will either do a craft or retell game. 
    • SNACK | Goldfish anyone? Yum
    • VIDEO | Every week we will have a video for your class that matches the Bible lesson from that day.
    • CHECK-OUT | Time to say your goodbyes and send the kids home with any classroom materials. 
    YOUR TEAM RESPONSIBILITY: 
    • ACTIVITY | Lead a fun and engaging activity for the class.
    • CHECK OUT | Have the same person who did check-in for the kids do check-out. This will ensure safety for the parents and will help you get to recognize faces and names of parents/kids. Initial your name next to a child's name tag after they've been picked up.
    • SNACK | Have someone assigned to giving out snack. 
    • TECHNOLOGY/VIDEO | Have someone assigned to play the movie(s).
