Review

Let’s review what we have learned so far, OK? Do you remember what we learned Thursday and Friday? (wait to see if they will answer – if they answer correctly, clap your hands and say, “Yeh! That’s right! Good job!) We learned about biting and helping, didn’t we?

Do you remember our Bible verses? Let’s go over them together:

Bible Verses

Be ye kind one to another. (Eph 4:32a)

And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them:(Psa 37:40a)

Is biting a kind thing to do? (shake head No and frown) No, biting someone is not kind at all. Is biting sweet? (shake head No and frown) No, biting someone is not sweet at all. What do we use our teeth for? (wait for an answer) Yes, that’s right! Good job! We use our teeth to chew our food! Let’s sing The Biting Song. Do you remember it?

The Biting Song
(sung to Bah Bah Black Sheep)

Biting someone isn’t very nice
God says everyone be kind
Never bite just to get our way
We must be nice every day
Biting someone isn’t very nice
God says everyone be kind

Good job!! I’m so glad that you remember what we learned! You are doing such a great job! Mommy and Daddy are very proud of you! (clap your hands)

What else did we learn? We learned about helping Mommy and Daddy, didn’t we? (nod your head yes and smile) Do you think it makes Jesus happy when you help me? (nod your head yes and clap) Oh yes, Jesus is very happy when you help. Why? Because God helps us, just like our Bible verse says. God wants us to be just like Him. He wants us to help others the same way He helps us! Thank You God for teaching us to help each other! (clap your hands) Let’s sing The Helping Song!

The Helping Song
(sung to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

I help Mommy I must say
To pick up toys and make my bed
Folding towels and socks too
Washing dishes, forks and spoons
I help Mommy I must say
Obeying Jesus every day

Mommy and Daddy are so happy that you love to help! (clap your hands and smile) You are a helper just like Jesus is a helper! Good job!! (clap your hands again)

Dear God…
I am glad that I do not bite any more. I know that made You sad.
I always want to help my Mommy and Daddy because it makes You happy.
Amen!

Coloring/Teaching

Let’s color a picture of the hat. See the letter h? H sounds like (sound out h). Another word that has the letter h is “help”! Let’s use the word help in a sentence. I help Mommy to fold laundry.

The Helping Song
(sung to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)

I help Mommy I must say
To pick up toys and make my bed
Folding towels and socks too
Washing dishes, forks and spoons
I help Mommy I must say
Obeying Jesus every day

Bible Time

Let’s open the Bible and learn what God says about helping.

And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them:(Psa 37:40a)

Story

Bobby likes to help Mommy. Mommy makes helping fun! (smile and nod your head yes) Mommy puts Bobby’s favorite Children’s Songs CD and they listen to music while they do the dishes. Sometimes Mommy makes folding laundry fun, too! Mommy gives Bobby all the socks and Bobby has to match them before his favorite song finishes. When Bobby finishes in time, Mommy gives Bobby some gummy bears!

Bobby likes to help Daddy in the garage, too. Daddy gives him a rag and Bobby cleans Daddy’s tools. “Bobby is a big boy! Good job, Bobby! Thank you for helping me!” says Daddy. “Would you help me rake the leaves, please?” asked Daddy. Bobby knew that if he helped Daddy, it would make Daddy very happy. “OK, Daddy, I will help you!” said Bobby. Good job, Bobby! (clap hands and smile)

Teaching Throughout the Day

Throughout the day, each time your child helps, clap your hands and tell them thank you! Remind them that when they are helping they are not only being a helper but they are being kind and they are doing the same thing God does. Repeat the memory verse to show them that they are being a helper just like God helps us.

Dear God…
I like helping Mommy and Daddy.
Please show me how I can help them more.
Amen!
