God Made Me Bible Lesson 5
My Helping Hands
This lesson is about the good Samaritan and how he used his hands to do good things. Children learn that they can use their amazing hands to glorify God by doing good things and praising him. (A complete lesson is available to members only on The Resource Room.)
Helping Hands Activity Sheet
Children color the picture of either a boy or girl and then cut out pictures of different things they can do to help others and glue them onto the activity sheet. (A pattern is available on The Resource Room.)
Make a Remember Memory Verse Hand Picture
Explain to your children that sometimes when we want to remember something important, we can tie a string on our fingers to help us remember. Have your children write some things on the fingers of the paper hands they want to remember to do during the week. Have them write the Bible verse on the palm, and tie a string on one of the fingers to remind them to do what they wrote and practice the Bible verse.
(A pattern is available on The Resource Room.)
Home School Materials are also Included in this Lesson, Including Math Review Games:
Helping Hand Number, Words, and Letter Review Game
Before class print out the hand patterns (Available to members) and cut them out. Write letters or numbers on the fingertips that your children are learning. Fold the fingers down towards the palm of the hand. Place a large bowl of water on the table. Place one of the hands on the water so it is floating with the folded fingers facing up. It will only take a few seconds for the fingers to start unfolding. When a finger pops up and reveals a number or letter, ask you children if they recognize that letter or number. Let your children write letters and numbers on their own hands to take home and show their parents how the helping hand works. You can also review sight words by writing one letter of the word on each finger.
