Nursery Lesson Plan 26: Jesus Taught the People - 18 March 2012



Hi Parents,

Herewith just a follow up from our nursery session with your little ones on Sunday.  I hope that your radishes are growing, ours certainly are.  Remember to keep watering them with the children.

The concept area was Jesus and Learning Theme was Jesus taught the people (through stories).  Bible memory verse:  Luke 5:3 Jesus taught the people.  Bible Story and Passage: Luke 8:4-15 Story of the farmer scattering seed. Our activities included planting seeds with the children and talking to them about the good soil and how if we water them and they get sunshine they will grow.  We also had a cut out and paste activity with pictures of farmers, plants and people sowing. During our story time I had three glass jars, one filled with stones and pebbles, one filled with soil and weeds and one filled with good soil as they used to plant their seeds.  I then explained how the sower sows the seeds and some fall on rocks and get eaten by birds and do not receive nourishment, others fall in soil but the weeds destroy them and then others fall into good soil and with sunshine and water grow.  Explaining that we need to be like the seed that fall into good soil and that when we pray and read our bible we grow.

We sang songs together afterwards with the children such as Read your Bible Pray every Day and Who Made the Stars so bright and the children's favourite, If you're happy clap your hands.

Remember you can pot your radishes into pots or outside just as they are, the eggcontainers are biodegradable so will just dissolve.  Hope you can enjoy them with the children.

God bless
Rochelle
