In the first lesson children learn what a watchdog and a watchdog group are, and are introduced to the "Watch My Ways" Watchdog Group. They learn that a watchdog's job is to watch and warn its owners when something doesn't seem right or they may be in danger.

Children also learn that they need to watch our ways and what we say to become good "watchdogs". They are introduced to the Watchdog Motto, Promise, and Official Bible Verse. If they complete "Watch My Ways" training and are able to say the motto, promise, and Bible verse, they will receive an official membership card into the "Watch My Ways' Watchdog Group.

Lesson 4 - "Watchdog Training"

"I Will Not Whine" Printable Itty Bitty Book for Children from www.daniellesplace.com

We don't like it when our dogs whine so we teach them not to do it. God teaches us through his words that he does not like us to whine and complain. Children can make a "No Whining" dog, color an activity sheet, and play the "Watchdog Training Game", a printable board game that reinforces the lesson.

This lesson is available to members of The Resource Room.

"I Will Not Whine" Printable Itty Bitty Book

This 3" x 3" book was designed to go along with the Watchdog Series of lessons for Sunday school. Each page has a picture of a dog that illustrates the words on that page. Based on the Philippians 2:14, "Do all things without murmurings and disputings."

I will not whine when it is time to go to bed.
I will not whine when my mom is on the telephone.
I will not whine when I have to put my toys away.
I will not whine when I don't like my food.
I will not whine when my mom asks me to help.
I will not whine when I have to do my homework.
I will not whine when I have to wait.
I will not whine when I am hungry.
I will not whine when things don't go my way.

Lesson 5 - "Lie Detectors"

Watchdog Bible Review Game for Sunday School

 

sunday school detective badge bible craft

Through this lesson children learn that good watchdogs are good detectors. They can detect noises and smells much better than humans and warn them when danger is near. We need to be good "lie detectors". Lies can sometimes be hard to detect because they come in so many forms such as white lies, exaggeration, breaking a promise, leaving out some of the facts, flattery, etc.

Children practice detecting lies by playing "Detective a Lie" Game. They receive an official "Watchdog Lie Detective" badge when they have completed the game. This lesson is available on The Resource Room.

When they say words that are mean or uplifting they write the words on sheets of paper and tape them to the moveable tongue. Old words are placed in a pocket inside the file folder. Use the collection of words at the end of the week to discuss how well your children controlled their words.
