Make "Great Teacher Awards"

Teachers Award Bible Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

God wants us to learn as much as we can from the teachers he gives us so that we will be pleasing to him. The Bible tells us to: "Get all the advice and instruction you can, and be wise the rest of your life." Proverbs 19:20. He also wants us to be thankful for the teachers he gives us. Today we are going to make something for our teachers to show them that we are glad God gave them to us.

(Patterns available to members on The Resource Room.)

Show the children a sample of the Great Teacher Award Pattern. Help younger children write in the names of their teachers and parents. Have them color the award.
